w 20210222 Village Poilhe po 18On the banks of the Canal du Midi, the charms from the small village of Poilhes (pronounced Poïlle) will seduce you…

We sometimes add the qualification of “Roman Poilhes”, because in fact the Gallo-Roman presence is very marked. A very large number of remains of ancient ancient villae have been discovered by archaeologists. The Domitian Way passes a few hundred meters from the village and the archaeological site of Ensérune is also located a stone's throw away.

There is also an excavation site, Régismont-le-Haut, which dates from the Upper Paleolithic.

The village was built on both sides of the canal, giving off a certain charm and bucolic atmosphere. It is a favorite stopover for boaters.

You can easily stay in Poilhes: lodges, and several restaurants are at your disposal in the village and surrounding areas. You will also have the opportunity to do your shopping in the typical village grocery store or enjoy a glass of wine in a producer.
