The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Situated in the south eastern part of France the region has lots to offer:
-Carcassonne,an idyllic castle town & UNESCO world heritage site and the setting for Labyrinth by Kate Mosse. In the summer months they hold jousting competitions exactly as they were held in mediaeval time with magnificent horses, costumes and much drama.
-Collioure, a spash of catalan culture, blessed with a privileged climate and a romantic setting, a beautiful fishing port where Picasso and Matisse stayed and painted. Visit the Bar du Templiers where these painters paid for their stay with paintings which still hang on the walls. Explore the small cobbled streets to find wonderful little cafes and restaurants and unusual shops or just soak up the atmosphere in the small harbour.
-Perpignan- wander through it's narrow lanes or join in the street festival every Thursday evening in August
-Barcelona-historic and beautiful, a 2 hour drive away
-Safari park at Sigean
-The Cathar castles of Queribus and Peyreperteuse perched on impossible cliff tops. Well worth the death defying drive through the mountains and the effort of the climb, the views are breathtaking.
-The Gorge of Galamus. Park your car at 9.00 am and walk the gorge. A two hour stroll through outstanding scenery and deep drops to the gorge bottom will leave you ready for an al fresco lunch at the Moulin at the end. Relax for a couple of hours here before strolling back to collect your car.
-The Little Yellow Train that travels through the Pyrenees. Take the trip starting at Villefranche de Conflent to Mont Louis-the station just before the highest point-this is the most popular trip. Be prepared to be rattled and thrown around corners as if on a fair ground ride,a truly memorable journey with every bend delivering a new breathtaking view.
-Agde on the Basin de Thau is worth driving to to see the water jousting in the summer months - full of excitement and many wet jousters! Some of the buildings in the town have outstanding wall paintings - trompe-l'oeil at its best.
-The Dali museum at Figueres, Spain. Only a 40 minute drive over the mountains will let you visit a museum housing the extraordinary art work of Salvador Dali. The museum itself is a fascinating piece of architecture.
There are many local places to visit for a memorable holiday:
-The beach at Port Leucate is vast and even at the height of summer there is no shortage of space and during high season lifeguards are on duty.
-The pretty marina of Port Leucate with it's many waterfront restaurants & bars.
-Leucate village with it's historic chateau, lighthouse and restaurants. Full of charm and french character.

-Port Leucate -Rope adventure park, Aqualand-Water park - both close to Marina Plage.
-Local vineyards at Fitou, Corbiere or Minervois.
-Golf course at St. Cyprien
-The Domaine de Rombeau in Rivesaltes is worth a trip for a truly gourmet experience. A true Catalan gem and has been in the de la Fabregue family for centuries. The menu is typically Catalan and many of the dishes are cooked over an open fire using vine cuttings.
