The Languedoc-Roussillon region
This part of the Languedoc has a sunny, Mediterranean climate. It can be hot in July and August, but the temperature is often tempered by a breeze. Now the 3rd most visited region in France by British people, the Languedoc offers something for everyone. Miles of long, sandy beaches, coastal lagoons, vibrant cities such as Narbonne and Perpignan, historical sites such as Carcassonne and the Cathar castles, fabulous scenery, great cuisine and vineyards, vineyards, vineyards.
The Domaines de Capitelles development, where this apartment is located, is a peaceful and safe environment with well maintained buildings, roads and pathways and landscaped gardens - all the properties here are maintained to the same high standards. This is not a typical local holiday residence as all the properties here have individual private owners - some live here all the time, and some use them as holiday homes. The owners of this apartment fall into the last category. The residents include many people from Norway, Sweden, Great Britain, Belgium and France - truly multi-national.
Fitou village is extremely characterful with the medieval chateau illuminated at night. There are numerous walks in the surrounding hills giving fantastic views of the coast and the sea, and the mountains - often snowcapped until late May. The coastal path from the lighthouse at Leucate plage towards La Franqui is a great and interesting walk.
Once more thing to point out if you are going to stay in this area - there's a big quite new commercial centre at Claira next the exit No: 41 on the A9 - there's a large Carrefour hypermarket, a cinema complex and a wide variety of fast food shops should you need them.
If there's anything else you would like to know, please contact us directly as we know the villa and the area well.
Fitou is just 10-15 minutes walk away or a couple of minutes by car. It has a small Spar supermarket for bread and daily provisions, a tabac, a post office, a take-away pizza outlet, a bar, tennis courts, a boulodrome, and many wine caves. There are 4 great restaurants in the village and a medieval castle which has a museum, a gift shop, and a tapas bar.
Ten minutes away by car are the lovely villages of Leucate and La Franqui where you will find fine, sandy beaches.
The towns of Perpignan (25 mins), Narbonne (30 mins), Beziers (45 mins) and Carcassonne (50 mins) are all within easy reach by car. Perpignan has a real Catalan feel, visit the narrow lanes and unique shops, wide squares lined with palm trees and the Palace of the Kings of Majorca. Narbonne, once a Roman port, is a delightful town divided in two by the Canal de la Robine - it has a great indoor market in Les Halles. Beziers - visit the Cathedral St Nazaire, the long tree-lined promenades, cafes and great shopping. Carcassonne - a must see whilst you are here with its two rings of fortifications and 52 fairy-tale turrets.
Sport facilities: Golf at Saint Cyprien (27 holes), walking, cycling, rock climbing, bird watching, swimming, sailing, wind or kite-surfing, canoe/kayaking, ski-ing in the Winter at Font Romeu and Les Angles.
Sightseeing/days out: The area has a lot to offer - here are just a few suggestions: locally the Fortresse de Salses and the African Nature Reserve at Sigean, the very lovely Collioure, Ceret, Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi, the Cathar Castles, Villefranche de Conflent and the border with Spain is only 30 minutes drive away, so a trip to Roses, for example, is an easy possibility.
Wine: The AOC wine produding area of Fitou is very famous. The grapes are grown either along the edge of the Mediterranean coast or on the slopes of the Corbieres hills. The grape varieties are: Carignan and Black Grenache blended with a little Syrah or Mourvedre to give the wine a rich, smooth taste. Wander along the main street in Fitou and try some for yourselves.
Markets: The local markets are full of fresh seasonal produce as well as jewellery, wine, clothes, basketware etc. Some of the best ones locally are Narbonne - Thurs and Sun; Collioure - Weds; Leucate Village - Friday; Leucate Plage - Weds; Port La Nouvelle - Weds; Perpignan or Ceret - Saturday.
Restaurants: 4 great restaurants in Fitou village, more in La Franqui and Leucate.
Supermarkets: Carrefour at Leucate, larger Carrefour at Claira, Geant and Carrefour in Narbonne. Spar mini-market in Fitou village.
