The house is quietly located in the historic village of Beaufort which has about 200 inhabitants. Every Thursday evening from June to September petanque competitions are held at the Municipal Bowling alley. Above the village stands a castle, which originally served as a defense town of the picturesque village of Minerve. The latter, which is 10 km from Beaufort, is classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France and is being certified Grand Site of France. The village of Olonzac, 3 kilometers, offers all the amenities and a large traditional market that takes place every Tuesday morning. Being located at the border of the departments of Hérault and Aude, Beaufort is the perfect starting point to discover the Minervois terroir, the Cathar Country, rich in history, the Regional Natural Park of Haut-Languedoc and the Natural Park Regional Narbonnaise and Mediterranean.
