About US

Having first come to the Minervois on holiday 15 years ago I was smitten by the beauty of this part of France. The varied landscape, perfect for hiking and biking, and the relaxed lifestyle available here captivated me and it seems my stories about the area caught the imagination of others. 

As a result, a group of adventurous Canadians encouraged me to find and restore a building that we could share. Over a few years a ruined Chateau was thoroughly restored and converted into 9 privately owned apartments.

Returning to Olonzac is coming home.
