About the neighbourhood
Within the Domaine you will find a working farm with a number of families who own and manage various businesses including the grapevines, apricot orchards and olive groves. In season, you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables from the market garden and Millepetit's own wines.

There is always activity with asparagus harvesting in April or the pruning of the apricot, sweet almond or olive trees. Yet it can be sublimely peaceful as you sit under the old Yew tree sipping your wine, chatting or reading your book. The Domaine really comes alive during the vendange or grape harvest in September as the wine grower prepares his harvest for sale to the local vignerons. It is great fun to be part of this special time for the Domaine.

It is recommended that you have a car as we are 4 km from Trebes. There is a regular bus to Carcassonne from the Trebes port.

Follow the D610 from Trebès in the direction of Marseillette. At 3.3 km after crossing the canal you will see a small sign on the right hand side of the road for Millepetit at the end of a small olive grove lined by pine trees. Follow this road towards the canal and you will pass the Chateau on the right and no 33 is on the left with the dark blue door (behind the fly screen). (The turnoff is 5.4 kms from the bridge over the canal in Marseillette if you are travelling towards Trebès)
