The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The region boasts a host of outdoor activities, beautiful mediaeval towns and historic monuments, exquisite mountains and coastal scenery. Many hike paths are also available.
Collioure - 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.
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-we were amazed at the speed it travels at, but a truly memorable journey with every bend delivering a new breathtaking view.
The Fortress of Salse. A masterpiece of military architecture and work of Francisco Ramirez, Spanish Minister of War, was built at the request of King Ferdinand d'Aragon at the end of the fifteenth century. Built as a garrison and remains in wonderful condition-well worth a guided tour.
Carcassonne is probably the most famous city in the area and definitely a huge tourist attraction. It contains all the usual tourist gift shops you would expect but also many delightful small cafes, restaurants and quiet streets. In the summer months they hold jousting competitions exactly as they were held in mediaeval time with magnificent horses, costumes and much drama. Even if you don't speak French you can still enjoy the pageantry and follow what is happening.
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. In the summer months it is extremely busy and you may have to queue for several hours to get in. To help with this the museum has a late night opening at about midnight.
The beach – just 50 metres away – is vast and there is never shortage of space.
The apartment is only 300 metres from the Port Leucate marina, a delightful place with coffee shops, restaurants and several boutiques and grocery stores. In high season the marina is alive with market stalls and entertainments of all types.
Port Leucate is a well maintained resort offering every amenity for a complete holiday experience without the necessity of further travel if you don't want to. By the same token it is within easy driving distance of many areas and historical monuments and towns and an immense range of outdoor activities.
The local shops and market provide all your every day needs but there are large hypermarkets within a 15 minute drive if you prefer.
Bikes are available for hire and there is an adventure park and also a water park within easy cycling distance.
The port is very lively in July and August where live entertainment is available at many of the bars and restaurants but the noise cannot be heard from the apartment.
Outdoor activities include: swimming, diving, hang gliding, para gliding, rafting, horse riding, climbing, skiing, golf, cycling, walking, fishing, quad biking, go-karting, boat trips and fishing trips.
