The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Along with the Cote d'Azur, this is the part of the country which gets more sunshine than elsewhere in France. With easy access to the sea and river swimming, it is perfect for sunbathers and water-lovers.
Historically, the area is famous for the Cathars, a breakaway faith from the Catholic church. Cruelly put down, retracing this sad chapter of history through the numerous Cathar castles in the area is fascinating.
Languedoc-Roussillon is France's biggest wine producing region. The quality and price of the wine in this still largely underexposed area will be a very pleasant shock.
Many different sports activities possible including scuba diving, canyoning, mountain biking, bike hire, sea kayaking, fishing (sea or river), windsurfing, kite surfing, horse riding, etc.
Caramany is a haven for those looking to wind down. With a population of 150 and next to no traffic, village life is simple, intimate and peaceful. Madame Aubert pulls up every morning on the square in her little white van, selling baguettes, croissants and cakes.
Pop into the “Mairie” (Mayor’s office) to see if there’s an upcoming fete or petanque (French boules) tournament you can join in with. Pick up a map there which outlines walks in the surrounding hills. Have a drink and game of pool with the villagers at Patrick’s café a few doors up. Enjoy a barbecue on the terrace of Maison Caramany or take a picnic to the belvedere outside the village which offers breathtaking views of the lake below.
All this will make you realise just how fast our lives have become.

"Authentic old France unspoilt in every way"
Had a wondeful stay at Maison Caramany, a beautifull dwelling in an unspoilt village in the south of France. We arrived to find a small village at the top of a green valley with simply breathtaking views, the house was easy to find and was equiped with everything we needed for our holliday. The local wine was superb and very cheap maybe we had a little too much! The local villagers were very helpfull in terms of what to see and where to go which made our stay all the more pleasurable. Very close to the Spanish border unfortunately we didnt hire a car so were unable to visit but perfectly situated should you wish to do this

Really nice place, quiet and peaceful with the sea a short walk away. The villa was spacious and really clean and Gino the owner was really helpful in all communications and guidance. The locals very really nice and helpful too. I would highly recommend staying in this villa.

"The Real France"
This holiday retreat was a real gem. What really made the holiday special, was the fact that the local residents were all so friendly. It seemed to be because they all knew the owner of the holiday home and by association we were welcomed. Such lovely people! Best of all, is the wine district in which this property lies. We spent wonderful hours touring all the vineyards and tasting wines that hardly every get out of the region. If you are looking for the real France this is it!
