Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Belpech is a small active Cathar village in the middle of a beautiful rural area. The town has 2 bakeries, the best virtually at our back gate, a very good butcher who also stocks essentials and wine, a chemist and 2 doctors. The Vixiege runs through Belpech and gives its name to our only cafe/bar. Our house is in the centre of the village, across the road from a 12th century church. The village is essentially and charmingly French, with very few English speakers. The locals are warm and welcoming.
