The village of Massac, Aude, is a small wine producing village in the heart of the Corbieres wine region. Some of the most exciting wines in Europe come from this area and many wineries do tours and let you really get a feel for the process of wine making.
The surrounding area is is commonly known as "Cathar Country" on account of the number of Cathar ruins in the area, including the nearby Chateau Peyrepertuse, which is built into an imposing cliff-top. The Cathars, a peaceful religious movement against the teachings of the established Church, were all but wiped out during a Crusade against them in the early 13th Century. They left behind a number of defensive castles, mainly built in hill top locations.
There are also lovely fresh water lakes and rivers for swimming and excellent cycle routes and walking trails in all directions.
In the nearby village of Tuchan there are several stores, bars and restaurants. The village has frequent markets and there is a public swimming pool that opens between June and August.
In the nearby Corbieres village of Fontjoncouse, there is one of the best restaurants in the South of France. The Auberge de Vieux Puits is run by Gilles Gujon and despite having 3 Michelin stars, is unpretentious and mainly lets the food do the talking.
