Puissalicon - a mediaeval circulade

Puissalicon is a mediaeval circulade village that is located in the central south of France, in the wine growing region of Languedoc-Roussillon. Charming and ancient, Puissalicon is undisturbed by the hurly burly of modern life, and still relies on agriculture, and most importantly on its vineyards and wine domains to survive in the modern world. The village is well situated in France's sunny south, and has great access to the beaches of the Mediterranean and the historic towns and cities that make this region one of the most fascinating in France.

Chateau town amid the landscapes of the Med

Puissalicon lies in some of the loveliest countryside of the south, and is given a special ambience by its impressive chateau, which dominates the view of the town from any angle. The area includes many hectares of vineyards, with the "garrigue" (the aromatic scrubland of the inland Mediterranean ) and a handful of olive groves adding more sights, sounds and scents to the picture.

Historical Puissalicon

Apart from its chateau, Puissalicon also has a 12th century Gothic church, and a 10th century tower more than 26 metres high, which can be found a kilometre from the village.

Village amenities

Puissalicon is tranquil and full of traditional appeal, but the village also offers some useful amenities such as health care and a school, as well as a selection of shops to make life easy, including a post office, boulangerie and epicerie. Of course, the town of Béziers is usefully placed close to Puissalicon and has all the amenities you would associate with a large town. The countryside and neighbouring towns and villages support a variety of excellent restaurants ranging from the sweet and simple "routiers" to the gourmet cuisine and fine dining that makes any occasion special.

Around the region

What an area! The Languedoc is historically rich, culturally fascinating and situated in one of the sunniest locations in France. You have great cities such as Carcassonne and Montpellier to explore, alongside the beaches and resorts of the Med for those fun in the sun days, and the peace and tradition of the ancient villages for total tranquillity. Go wine tasting, play golf, fish in the lakes and rivers or simply chill out and enjoy the sunshine for which the area is noted, winter or summer.
