The Languedoc-Roussillon region
- Herault is the land of 300 days of bright Mediterranean sun - with so much to do for everyone.
- A half hours drive south will take you to miles and miles of sandy Mediterranean beaches. While you are there, take in great seafood restaurants and perhaps a boat tour of the oyster beds near Sete.
- Fresh water swimming is available within 10 minutes of Libellule at the Barrage des Olivettes.
- Go north to Lake Salagou for hiking trails, and more swimming, or to the Cevennes National Park with the incredibly scenic caves - Aven Armand and Grotte des Demoiselles.
- Take a trip to Montpellier. The lively old centre is full of shops, cafes and amazing restaurants - and no cars. The Musee Fabre is one of the most important fine arts museums in France.
- A little further is Nimes - with its Roman arena (the best preserved example in existence, and still in use), the Maison Carree and the nearby Pont du Gard - a 2000 year old aqueduct that is truly awesome.
- One of our favourite places in this area is Aigues Mortes - a lovely medieval French town, surrounded by well preserved ramparts, filled with great art shops, a market (Wednesdays and Sundays) and close to the Salins du Midi where you can tour the salt beds
- Further east, there is Arles (a world heritage site with its Roman theatre and arena), and Avignon with another Roman theatre and the renowned Palais des Papes.
- And then there is Carcassonne - a medieval fortified town that is one of France's premier tourist attractions. Just over an hour west - for what will certainly be one of the highlights of your visit.
- We have put together quite a bit of travel information on the region at our website languedocvacationhome.ca
- Neffies is a lovely friendly medieval town. Our home, Libellule is just metres away from the town centre with its epicerie, cafe and bakery. Les Goutailles is a wonderful restaurant.
- Drive in any direction from Neffies and you will be surrounded by vineyards with endless tasting opportunities.
- Pezenas with its craft and art shops, antique retailers, cafe-bars and restaurants is about 10 minutes from Neffies. It has changed little since it was adopted by Moliere with its 17th c. town mansions and 16th c. bourgeois dwellings. In summer, it is alive with festivals, concerts and exhibitions.
- On Saturdays, Pezenas features one of the biggest outdoor markets in the area.
- Around Pezenas are many "Villages Circulades" - traditional villages built in concentric circles, often around a chateau or church. You feel like you are waking through a history book.
- Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert is one of the "Plus Beaux Villages de France", a world heritage site, and one of our favourites.
