The Languedoc-Roussillon region
This part of the Languedoc has a sunny Mediterranean climate boasting 300 days of sunshine each year.
Languedoc offers something for everyone. Miles of long, sandy beaches, Cathar castles, fabulous scenery, great cuisine and vineyards in abundance.
The most renowned attractions in the area are the medieval walled ‘Cite’ and the Canal du Midi, both of which are World Heritage Sites and should not be missed. However, there is much more to see in this delightful region. The surrounding area is one of outstanding natural beauty and nearby villages such as Limoux, Mirepoix and St Hilaire, to name but a few, are both pretty and interesting.
Further afield, Narbonne, Montpellier, Toulouse and Pezenas are all well worth a visit.
Montclar is an excellent base from which to sample the wide variety of activities that are available in the region.
In addition to great walks and cycling that can be taken from the house, the more adventurous might enjoy kayaking, canoeing and white water rafting that are all reached within a short drive.
Lac de la Cavayere, a man made beach and lake close to Carcassonne, is a 20 minute drive away. Here there is a sandy beach, swimming, picnic areas, walks and other leisure activities including an excellent treetop adventure course for all ages.
The famous Canal du Midi also offers boat trips or boat hire or a quiet stroll along the river that winds its way though Carcassonne itself.
There are numerous markets that are a feature of life in the area. In particular, the Saturday morning market at Place Carnot in the centre of Carcassonne, is an absolute must, but the markets at nearby Limoux and Mirepoix are also well worth a visit.
Last, but not least, Languedoc is synonymous with wine, and there are a wide range of excellent wine caves that certainly merit exploration.
