Les Martinets is located in Olonzac, Herault

Olonzac is a charming small town conveniently located in Minervois region of the Languedoc-Roussillon area of Southern France. The area is well known for being the most productive wine region in the world, and Olonzac is surrounded by vineyards, with a beautiful view of the Montagne Noire (Black Mountains). On a clear day the Pyrenees are visible to the south.

Situated a mere 35 kilometres from the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean, and boasting 300 days of sunshine per year, Languedoc-Roussillon is a dream destination for adventurers, historians, gastronomes and sun worshippers alike. Unlike many parts of Southern France the area remains largely undiscovered by tourists, making the local traditions and flavours all the more delightful and rewarding to discover.

With its sandy beaches, rugged mountain peaks and medieval hilltop villages, Languedoc-Roussillon boasts one of France's most diverse landscapes and officially the sunniest region in the country.
