The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Park consists of stunning gorges and superb walking, hiking, river rafting, watersports and carp fishing. The Lac de Salagou is a beautiful area only 30 minutes drive away and Bassin de Thau – a calm inland sea teeming with fish. A breeding place for oysters and shellfish, producing over half the oysters consumed in France. Ideal for windsurfing and sail boarding. Villages, such as Bouzigues and Meze, have many restaurants serving sumptuous platters of fresh shellfish. Superb, child friendly beaches within a 30 minute drive, all with waterside restaurants and cafés.
There are a wealth of nearby village festivals throughout the summer months. The lively town of Beziers which is especially vibrant in August for the annual Feria, a 5 day long festival and perhaps the best flower market in the south of France on Fridays in the beautiful tree-lined main boulevard. Lots of fascinating shops in the little cobbled lanes in the old town.
In general the Languedoc climate is Mediteranean, with hot dry summers, rainy winters, and moderate springs and autumns. Expect 300 days of sunshine a year.
Lovely walks along the nearby Canal du Midi - this international heritage site links the Atlantic and Mediterranean coast. Beautifully shaded tow-paths ideal for walking or cycling with many cafés and bars dotted along the banks or many opportunities to take a boat ride or rent one of your own. Golf courses nearby at Béziers (St Thomas) and Cap d'Agde.
Roquebrun (called "Little Nice"), a gorgeous medieval hilltop village with a bathing river. Mediterranean garden to visit right at the top of the village.Carcassonne – a medieval town with its exceptionally well preserved citadel and walled town only 45 minutes away. Pezenas – City of Molière with quite exceptional old world charm and architectural heritage. Numerous arts and crafts shops and workshops open to the public and a popular extensive Saturday market. Cap D'Agde and Gruissan – these two towns offer everything you might wish from the Mediterranean. Both have fun water parks and offer a range of water sports and sailing opportunities with lovely clean beaches nearby. Other quieter beaches are not far away. The medieval settlement of Minerve is also not to be missed. 'A Cather stronghold in the heart of the 'Da Vinci Code' country, with a fascinating history. It boasts beautiful buildings and scenery, excellent restaurants and officially one of 'The Most Beautiful Village in France'. Spain is less than two hours drive away with Barcelona approximately 3 hours drive.
Auberge de la Croisade restaurant is just a 5 minute walk down the road. This restaurant has a number of set menus and A La Carte. The wine list is extensive and includes some very reasonably priced good quality wines from the immediate area. The service is of a high standard and Bruno, the co-owner / maitre d' is a top quality act, very entertaining, and fluent in English, German and French. Booking is advisable, especially in the high season, but once you have a table, there is no hurry to vacate it. Bruno enjoys customers who enjoy their food... and wine. The Auberge offers a very good value leisurely lunch menu, and the setting is top class, with the added bonus of a designated driver not being required. Bruno has been in business at the Auberge for over 20 years, so they must be doing something right!
Another "high end" restaurant worth mentioning is the "Table de Roueire" which is between Quarante and Capestang. Superb terrace overlooking fields towards Creissan, which is lovely for summer lunches. If lobster is your fancy then you can make your own live selection from the tank inside the restaurant. Very clever use of micro herbs, and a good range of both formula and a la carte menus utilising plenty of locally sourced ingredients. Wine list to suit all tastes and budgets. Quite formal service but also very friendly, if a little more restrained than Bruno at "Auberge de La Croisade"! In our experience, always welcoming to children, with a nice Menu Enfants to match - not at all "stuck up" in this respect. No reason at all why it shouldn't be busy at every service, but has always been quiet when we've dined there. Not that we have a problem creating our own atmosphere!
There's a traditional bar in Quarante, "Bar le 40", which is very popular with locals and tourists alike, especially across lunchtime, starter, main, dessert, and wine for €11 the last time we were there! Cheap and cheerful, but also a good range of grilled meat and fish dishes.
