You have already seen a few villages here and there in this page; let us stop for a while in the village of Sauvian, just an example of a lower Languedoc village, there are tens of villages alike, but each has its personality. . . .
Sauvian is proud of the bell tower of its church, massive like a donjon, (picture 1), and I like it with the monument to the death with the cock. . orykoooo!
There is no special tourist attraction in the village, a Roman pillar (picture 2), nice streets , open with low houses, an arch (Roman?) at the entrance of a street. . . . In Lower Languedoc, most of economic activity is around wine and the plains and low hills are covered with wineyards for kilometres and kilometres. . . and suddenly, here or there, a break, like a windmill. . . (picture 3), and the landscape can be a bit monotonous, but driving on small empty roads bordered by huge plane trees gives a real charm to road trips in ?flat lands? (picture 4). If the churches are open, it is always worth to have a stop and a visit in the small churches, and if nothing ?special? is there (picture 5), you can have a rest and think to the previous church you visited and compare. . . they have all a personality, specially the old ones, raw stone, a bit austere, generally more than 500 years old, and still the meeting point (with the central place where you meet the pétanque players) of the village, where you have the best local news. . . .
