The Languedoc-Roussillon region
This region is both beautiful and varied.
The mountains are spectacular and accessible to all - hikers, bikers and skiers of any level.
The coast boasts sandy beaches northwards, and rocky coastline with delightful bays towards the Spanish coast. Coastal towns entice with their fishing ports and restaurants.
Those interested in culture, history or language will find much to offer: Cathar castles, the old Spanish border north of Perpignan at Salses le Chateau, and Catalan festivals throughout the area. Abbeys (St Martin du Canigou, St Michel de Cuxa, Serrabonne priory), Vauban walled towns (Villefranche, Mont Louis), the Prades Pablo Casals festival, Perpignan and Carcassonne.
There are vineyards everywhere, look and see where the wine you bought is from - you can probably visit the vineyard - this is the largest wine-producing area of France.
...and if you tire of France, go to Andorra or Barcelona for the day!
Vernet les Bains
Vernet-les-Bains is a great place for a holiday whatever you enjoy doing, and whether you all want to do everything together or separately:
* From the door you can hike, mountain-bike, play tennis, and swim (outdoor public pool open summer months, indoor pool open all year round).
* A short drive away there's trout fishing and caving, rafting and adventure parks
* Taking it easy? Discover the arboretum, pamper yourself at the thermal baths, or stroll up to the Belvedere. Take the "little yellow train" into the mountains and in the evening enjoy the frequent concerts on the village square or visit the Casino.

"An activity holiday for all"
We planned a week in early summer walking holiday in the Eastern Pyrenees, using Vernet les Bains as our centre and staying in the Rue de Chateau. We had studied maps of the area and identified some activities for the days off from our walks. In the event we our downtime was filled enjoying the local food and drink and we didn't find enough time to explore the many other facilities for adults and families in the area. Rue du Chateau is in the centre of the old part of Vernet les Bains. The house is light and airy, most of the accommodation is on one level, one floor above street, and the windows can be safely left open to keep the house cool. There are sweeping views from the rooms on this level The walled courtyard on the lowest level is a safe place for small children to play while their parents enjoy a drink in the shade while older children can make friends in the nearby squares. The house is very well stocked with books, maps and guides of the area for planning the next day's adventures, and for the keen holiday e-readers the 3G signal is excellent.
