Descriptif détaillé :
From the car park, go up some steps, cross the War Memorial garden and head towards the church. Walk along the church and reach the place du Cadran Solaire (Sundial). Cross the avenue de l’Hôtel de Ville (Town hall) (1) and continue straight ahead. Walk round the Town hall by the first street to the right and continue left in the direction of the La Clairette pine wood. To your right, you’ll notice a construction equipped with a lever arm : this is the Fontaine d’Agnès. About 500 m further up, to the left, (2) take a path going up to the La Clairette pine wood. Walking in the shade of the pine trees, you’ll soon be overlooking the plain, to your right. Continue straight ahead. Up ahead in the distance, to the left, you’ll catch a glimpse of the lake at Argens-Minervois. Next, you’ll walk along some vineyards before entering the Pech Coujol woods. Pay attention to the markers here. By way of a small path surrounded by pine trees, you’ll meet up with the narrow road (3) below and start walking uphill to the left. Then, turn right on a path in the direction of the wood known as ‘La Métairie’. As soon as you start out on this path, (4) walk up the slope and go into the wood.
Again, heed the markers here.
The path twists and turns in the copse. To the left, it overlooks the vineyards.
To the right, you’ll notice ‘Le Tourril’, a huge estate. You’ll notice the “bee’s wall” with its 8 boles, the remains of the beekeeping activity of the second half of the 19th century. The path then goes down towards the road. Straight ahead, a sign indicates a path going to La Frigoulette, on the Serre Méjeanne. Take the road to the left. At the fork in the road, turn left. You’ll meet up with the outward track again. Walk uphill towards the Pech Coujol. Before ‘La Clairette’, turn right on a path which will soon narrow down.
Heed the markers.
On your right there is a small path going down the slope. This will lead you to a track.
Walk downhill on 4 landscaped steps. Take the track to the left for about 10 m, then turn right in the direction of the narrow road. Take this to the left heading towards the village. Before re-entering the village, on your right, cross a housing development and find the road to Argens which you’ll take to the right. Leave it going left just before the town sign when you come to an iron wayside cross. Meet up with the outward track.
