The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Languedoc Roussillon lies on the southern Mediterranean Coast of France and borders with Spain. You will find many Spanish influences in the area, particularly in the dialect.
The region is the largest vineyard in the world with many household names as Faugeres, Fitou, St Chinian, Minervois providing some outstanding reds, superb rose wines and famous whites such as Picpoul only found in this area of the World. The region is also one of the leading areas for fresh fish particularly the oysters and moules from the Bassin de Thau as featured by Rick Stein in his recent series. There are wonderful fish restaurants in Meze, Marseillan (home of the Noilly Prat), Bouziques, and Sete to mention just a few.
The climate is hot and sunny for most of the year with the region having 300 days of sunshine per year. the temperatures in High Summer can reach mid to late 30's and the spring and autumn can be very good months. May and June are wonderful months to come down. During the winter the temperatures can be quite cold with occasional frosty days. The villa has excellent heating so it may be cold outside but inside it is warm and comfortable. There are miles of gold sandy beaches particularly between Agde and Sete. The villa is within easy reach of Carcasonne, Nimes, Arles and Pont du Gard.
Tourbes is a quiet village on the outskirts of Pezenas. The village has a Patisserie, all purpose shop, chemist, post office, local bar and an excellent restaurant called La Maison. Wednesday is a highlight of the week in the village with its own mini market and visiting cheese man. In the evening the Pizza man comes to the village and you can sit outside the bar whilst your Pizza is freshly cooked.
Pezenas which is the nearest local town - only 5 mins in the car is an old Roman settlement. The old town today is a maze of narrow lanes full of artisans in the high season of July and August selling their wares. The town has many restaurants and bars around the old town and main square. Early July has the local wine festival in Faugeres where you buy a glass and sample all the local vineyards wines for free - bring a non drinker to drive home. Also visit the markets of Clermont l'Herault on a Wednesday and Vias Plage on a Friday full of wonderful fruit, vegetables, meat and flowers and local oil and honey. Not to be missed. Sete has the wonderful jousting matches with the final on or near Bastille Day (14th July).
