The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Bordered by the Pyrenees, Andora and Spain in the south, Languedoc Roussillon is noted for its relaxed pace of life. It extends north as far as the Massive Central and has a long Mediterranean coastline of sandy beaches stretching 180km from the Spanish border to the Camargue. Languedoc encompasses the largest wine producing area of Europe.

A typical Mediterranean climate with long hot summers, temperatures often reaching over 30 degrees C and short, mild winters. Rain falls in spring and autumn and there can sometimes be strong Mistral winds and summer storms. The inland hills are colder in winter and the Pyrenees have thick snow cover.

Good beaches and resorts along the coast, offering a variety of water sports. Many golf courses throughout the region from 9 to 18 holes, for all levels and inexpensive. Numerous health spas to relax. Nature reserves with a variety of flora and fauna and ideal for hiking, rambling, cycling and riding with good fishing in the rivers and lakes. Routes are well sign-posted. During the summer in the Pyrenees there is mountain climbing, accompanied by experienced guides, mountain biking, or walking. In the winter there are good cross-country ski routes and excellent skiing. Serious walkers can follow the ancient pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostela that take you across the region.

Markets and country bric-a-brac markets in towns and villages on different days and from early spring until late autumn, there are numerous festivals, fetes, classical, jazz and folk concerts. Children are welcome and included in all activities.

The attractive town of Prades is located next to the mountains and rivers. The dramatic scenery surrounding the town is dotted with Cathar castle ruins and is a rambler's delight. Prades red roof-tops and pretty stone buildings have a distinct Catalan feel to them and the main attraction in the town is the church of St-Pierre.

There is strong Catalan feelings in Prades and the town was the first in France to have a Catalan-language Primary school. The town is quite lively during the summer months with traditional Catalan music and dancing taking place in the square during the evenings. The town is also host to the Catalan summer school for two weeks every August. Every Tuesday there is an excellent market.
