Azille Maison is located in the centre of the charming, friendly and historical small town of Azille located in the Minervois wine producing area in southern France.
The current site of Azille was populated as far back as the Iron Age and also in Roman times. The first church in town, St Andre, was founded around the 11th century and was located in the centre of the village. The small medieval centre of the town where Azille Maison is situated has some very narrow streets with a distinctly period feel, and remnants of the medieval walls and many old buildings dating from through the centuries.
Today, Azille has a bakery, an Epicerie (a small general store), a bar/café, two restaurants, a pharmacy, 2 medical practices and a Post Office. A market with fresh food vendors operates on Fridays.
There are many things to do in the nearby area, with ten towns within a ten minute drive from Azille, produce markets, Lac de Jouarres (lake) for picnics and swimming, and the Canal du Midi with paths for walking and cycling, canal-side restaurants, and lots of places to just watch the sedate flow of canal traffic.
For tasting the local wines there are many wineries and wine tasting outlets in and around Azille and the nearby towns, which sit within the Minervois appellation wine area which has developed a reputation for very affordable quality wines.
