About the neighborhood
The village nestles on a gentle hilltop, surrounded by vineyards of the Minervois wine-growing region and with far reaching views of the Montaigne Noire, the Corbieres hills and, in the distance, the Pyrenees.
Amenities in the village include a general store, bars, canal side summer restaurant and two wine producers (domaines). Argens is a recognised canal-boat port (bassin) and a popular stopping off point for provisions for canal boaters.
The nearest town, Lezignan-Corbieres (wine making capital of the Corbieres wine region), is approximately three miles away and has a wide range of good food – with a large weekly market - clothes shops, supermarkets, banks, Office de Tourisme, theatre, cinema and station (see Travel).
