The hamlet of Cazo is nestled on a hill in a valley swept with grape vines. From our house’s doorstep, walking paths fan out in all directions over a variety of terrain. The hilly paths are kept open by the hamlet’s resident population of 200 heirloom sheep and goats. The trails through the valley and rolling hills run through the hundreds of hectares of prime vineyards.
Hikers feel as though they’re in the middle of nowhere and yet from Cazo it’s only a three-minute drive (or a 30 minute hike through the hills) to the thriving market town of St. Chinian situated in the Vernazobre river valley. Gastronomes rejoice when they hear that there are three butchers in town, a twice weekly open-air market and several simple cafes. This region of the south of France is wonderful to explore by foot, bicycle and car.
People ask us if we rent our home. The answer is: “Sometimes.” For more information visit our website at Hamlet in the Vines
