There are lots of walks starting from our base over the local country tracks (chemins) and unclassified roads. These walks usually take around an hour to an hour and a half but we can make them shorter if required. You can be satisfied with one a day, or we can take you out in the morning and afternoon. Here are a few examples of the walks.
TONNAC (7.1 km)
The first of our short walks takes us out the top of the village and then down to the valley floor by the wells which supply the village with water. We then climb the other side of the valley and head onto a chemin towards the Tonnac road. After passing through fields edged with copses, we climb higher to Tonnac. From here there are suberb views east towards Cordes standing on its rocky outcrop, south to the black mountains and south west towards the Pyrenees. We then head back through scrub woods along a ridge and descend to the wells, and up to Itzac.
LE MOULIN (4.8 km)
We head down the old track out of the bottom of the village and through the hamlet of Lamandie. After passing the cemetery we turn left and pass the old mill which has been restored by the village. We climb up through the woods to the plateau where there are views north towards the Gresigne Forrest.
We head for Le Causse then to Les Taureilles where we drop down through the woods. There are a lot of Roe Deer and these are quite often seen grazing around the woods. Finally, we then climb back up by Le Coustat to the village.
DOMAIN DE L'EMMEILLE (6.1 km)
If you like wine you'll like this short walk through the vineyards to the cave at Domain De L'Emmeille where we'll taste the full range of Gaiilac wines.
After going down to Lamandie, we take the track up to Bouissiere and then through the vineyards of Beaudinenqc and Campagnac to the cave.
You'll get the chance to try as many of the 7 different types of wine they make at the winery as you like, along with an explanation of the different ways the wines are made.
We then walk up through Camapgnac and across to Beaudinenqc, then back through more vineyards onto the Chemin de St Salvy and up to the ridge opposite our house, getting fantastic views of Itzac. Its then the short walk down by the pond and up to the house.
