If Montpellier is only 10 minutes away from the Mediterranean sea, it is also a very short drive to the countryside.
A few kilometres away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, a man leaning on a stick crosses a village square, a newspaper under the arm. We are in Montferrier-sur-Lez, a small village of around 3500 inhabitants, north of the Metropolis Capital. The village overlooks hectares of vineyards.
The man is walking through a maze of streets. « I walk here every day with my dog » says the man from Montferrier who is in a hurry to get his morning coffee. « I get lost, I meet people…I have lived here sixty years and I still discover something new everyday. The rue du four…. It is magnificent. »
Here, as in the other villages of the Metropolis, the streets are full of surprises, discoveries, small delights. Wandering the streets, aimlessly, without a map, is like taking a step back in time and seeing things as they were. Not to be missed.
