The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
Languedoc Roussillon is a remarkable region. With the Mediterranean sea on one side and the Pyrenees to the south, it boasts contrasting culture and history. Intriguing history, that has survived the ages in tradition. The regions castles, fortresses or stunning abbeys, will take you back in time.
The weather in Languedoc has a Mediterranean climate, with hot dry summers and over 300 days of sunshine a year. Temperatures are frequently in the eighties (30c) plus. With an outstandingly diverse coastline, sheltered by mountains. A stunning coastal region offering beautiful beaches and watersports for everyone.
A region bordering Spain, it also benefits from some of the best winter sports in the Pyrennes.
For those wanting a less energetic holiday, there are many other pastimes to enjoy. Cycle along the Canal du Midi or take a walk along one of the many marked trails, ranging from hourly rambles to treks lasting days or weeks. There is horse-riding for all levels and canoeing too.
Food in Languedoc Roussillon is particularly enviable, due to its central location around the basin of the Mediterranean. Gastronomically rich, owing to the generosity of the sun, land and sea.
The Languedoc plain is home to some of Frances greatest fruit and veg growing, with Mediterranean favourites, such as, sun-ripened apricots, plump tomatoes, artichokes, zingy lemons and much more. Natural coastal ' etangs ' provide homes, for flamingoes and marine life. The water rich areas provide the perfect habitat for oysters and mussels. Sete is the biggest fishing port, where you will find the most amazing varieties of fresh fish; baby squid, octopus, red mullet, sea bream and tuna etc. A real seafood lovers dream!
Olive groves provide treasured oils that rarely leave the area due to their high demand. Enjoy a Lucque olive, with a glass of Muscat, as an aperitif. Woodlands, scented with rosemary, tyme and mint, provide a natural habitat for wild boar, which helps provide the Languedoc with its winter diet. A rich dark stew with a glass of scented Corbieres, what could be better?
For cheese lovers, you will not be disappointed. Goat's and sheep's cheese, infused with wild mountain herbs. Roquefort, world famous blue cheese, still made and matured in caves of the Larzac Plateau.
Languedoc, is the word largest wine region and also the most exciting. It consists of a multitude of appellations, including, Corbieres, Fitou, St. Chinian, Muscats du Languedoc, Limoux and Cotes du Roussillon, the list continues and though yields have been significantly reduced, quality is now the name of the game. Established vines of the indigenous grape varieties, such as, Grenache and Cinsault, are grown alongside less traditional Syrah, Merlot and Chardonnay. Whether it be, a chilled glass of Chardonnay, with a brimming bowl of Moules mariniere, or a hearty rustic cassoulet, with a deep red Faugeres, you will find that the Languedoc Roussillon offers you the perfect accompaniement, to whatever the mood, occasion or setting.

Jason and Annette were fantastic, making us feel like one of their family. They were easy to contact and nothing was too much to ask.
The maisonette we stayed in was perfect, it had everything we needed - from spices to pans and a washing machine and dvds and books. The maisonette was very modern and luxurious.
The accomodation was in a great location, with easy walking distance to the castle, train station aswell as the shops and town square. We definetly did not need a car.
The only negative of the place was that we had to go home!
