The Languedoc-Roussillon region
As well as being a region of outstanding natural beauty this is a wine growing region of France that is also steeped in history. Visiting the many local vineyards in the area is a great attraction.
There are two World Heritage Sites and of course the old mediaeval city of Carcassonne which rises up above the Canal du Midi is a fascinating place to visit. Walks beside the canal are lovely and also this is a wonderful area for cyclists.
This is the historical Cathar region of France which also has a great deal to offer in the way of horse riding, golf, beautiful walks and picnics either by the Canal du Midi or in the Montagne Noire region where there are lakes where you can swim or fish. The village of Collioure is very popular and, being a wonderful area for painting, is a favourite place for artists.
There are many village fêtes in the area throughout the summer as well as music festivals. Cuxac Cabardes has its own fête and music festival in August which lasts for three or four days and includes a wonderful firework display, this is popular with those who are looking for more than relaxation whilst others are pleased when peace returns to the village. All in all the area has a great deal to offer should you wish to explore or just relax at home.
In the village there is a restaurant in the local hotel should you wish to eat out locally. Sadly the 'La Diligence' restaurant is now closed.
