Le Gite Sainte-Marie
Des vacances empreintes de calme et de convivialité

Arround the Domaine,

Much more than a peaceful halt, the region has many possibilities of  visits, excursions and discoveries. In these pages we've tried to present  some ideas and proposals for activities in order to help you to benefit  fully from the country "where the shade is a treasure"..  These take the form of links towards sites which particularly touched us and which we would like to share with you... Do not hesitate to leaf through these pages, whether you're searching for the Holy Graal, for the divine bottle lost among the rocks, or simply for a spot to let yourself be enchanted by the reeds swaying in the wind. They dance and swing and twist, on a salsa wind in these lands of mistral...

The Area and its History,

The country is Minervois, rich in monuments and wine treasures.

The Marseillette Pond,

To learn more about his story to find its origin and its properties. http://www.marseillette.info/ http://marie.pagespro-orange.fr/mairie.puicheric/

The Surrounding Villages,

Caune-Minervois with its abbaye dating back to the 12th century, its  marble quarry, its craft trades (with the Marble Festival).  Rieux-Minervois and its romanesque church... 

The Cathars,

Between the 10th and 12th century, the area was the theatre of the only  crusade between Christians in history. Many high-perched castles from  this period still remain and their ruins still evoke the fury of the battles.  But there are also many churches, masterpieces of romanesque art. http://www.cathares.org/ http://lescathares.free.fr/

The Canal du Midi,

Part of the UNESCO World Heritage, it links Toulouse to the  Mediterranean. Ideal for bucolic excursions.  http://www.canaldumidi.com http://www.canal-du-midi.org
