Step 1

From the Château de Paraza, in the heart of the village, take the Pouzols-Minervois road (D167). Climb gently between the vines. At the intersection, turn left in the direction of Roubia. At the bend of a bend opens a wide panorama overlooking the Canal du Midi and covering the plain to the Corbières and Alaric mountains. Go back down to the village. In Roubia, turn right onto rue du 19 mars. Follow the direction "Argens, Olonzac". From Roubia, then join Argens. By the D124. On leaving the village, you can take a break at the Moulin de la Restanque, producers of olive oils, whole olives or mashed olives to spread on a nice slice of bread. Join Argens overlooking the Canal du Midi on your left. Cross the bridge and then take the small road which runs along the canal on its right bank to reach Roubia by the other side of the canal. Along the way, you will pass in front of the Argens lock. When you get to the road, at the foot of the bridge over the Aude, turn left towards Roubia. Continue on the road along the meanders of the Canal du Midi to Paraza. These estates, cellars and shops labeled Pays Cathare and Qualité Sud France welcome you by reservation. During the tastings (free or paid), spittoons are at your disposal to be able to get back in the saddle without danger! Possibility of delivery.

Be careful, the fire risk is often high, especially in summer, and can lead to flower bed closures. Find out before you go consulting the fire risk map for outdoor activities.
Fires strictly prohibited. Do not smoke and never throw cigarette butts in nature. Fires are numerous and catastrophic in our region. In the event of a fire or accident: give alert 18 or 112 from a cell phone.
Protect yourself from the sun and take enough water with you.
Avoid picking flowers and plants. Take all your trash. Close fences and keep dogs on a leash in pasture areas, villages and protected areas.

Mountain bike routes: the routes are often shared with hikers or other users (cars, tractors, etc.). Be careful and always anticipate that a pedestrian may be present around a bend to have time to brake if necessary. Pedestrians have priority in principle, slow down at crossings or stop if the configuration of the terrain requires you to do so.
Thank you and happy hiking!
