Languedoc Style

The village of St Genies de Fontedit is situated in the very heart of the Languedoc wine country which is probably the most prolific wine producing region of France, and its style is typical of the region. The area in which this village is situated is nick-named the ‘Golden Triangle’ due to its micro-climate boasting around 300 days of sunshine a year. Built from local stone, the houses are a mixture of natural stone and crépi, the distinctive render with which many houses in this region are treated. St Genies de Fontedit is built around its church, in traditional 'circulades' fashion, and this lovely building forms a natural and impressive centrepiece.
