Olonzac (pronounced (oh-lohn-ZACK) is a picturesque country town nestled against a pastoral backdrop of gently rolling hills and vineyards.
Boasting a selection of shops, restaurants and cafe/bars, the town is sufficiently well serviced that you can rest assured you won't need for anything. Tuesday is market day, when the town swells to accommodate a multitude of stalls selling the widest conceivable range of wares, including the freshest local produce- vegetables, meats, poultry, cheeses and wine and craft and general commodities. For an authentic taste of the southern French countryside life, there is no better place to be, so be sure to get there early!
Only a few minutes walk out of town you'll find the Lac de Jouarres - a beautiful lake ideal for fishing, boating, swimming, wind surfing, surfing, or even just a pleasant, relaxing walk in the sun.
