The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Discover our region in the south of France. Wander through the villages along the Canal du Midi and sparkling rivers. See where figs, olives, melons, apricots and almonds grow alongside the rice farm and crops of asparagus. You'll find a wine tasting opportunity round every corner - try the olive oils too.
Our Gite has easy access to the magical medieval city of Carcassonne and the popular seaside resorts. Soak up the sun along the miles of sandy beaches while you lunch on local oysters and white wine.
Visit the bustling city of Narbonne steeped in history for thousands of years where stone age man built his menhirs and dolmens and the romans left behind their pottery works, baths and roadways in the surrounding countryside.
This is Cathar Country. Visit the fortresses balanced perilously high on mountain peaks where the doomed Cathar sect took refuge from persecution and massacre until they were finally crushed by the inquisition crusaders.
Return to Saint Aunay with its acres of open countryside, relax and watch the vines ripen.
Oh ! and there's lots more....
