The Area

  From the ancient city walls of Carcassonne to the modern holiday complexes of the coast, the Languedoc/Roussillon region begs to be explored. One of the Mediterranean's most glorious regions, the area enjoys more than three hundred days of sunshine a year.

Strung along the shoreline from the Spanish border to the River Rhone, the region includes long sandy beaches and quiet little coves, pretty fishing ports and first class watersports. Inland, the sunshine works its magic on mile upon mile of vineyards, the vital ingredient for the region's proud boast of being, by far the biggest wine producer in France. Explore the Languedoc and you discover the beautiful blending of Catalan colour and French elegance, combined with the region's colourful history of the Cathars. 

Almost half of all French wine production is based in the Languedoc Roussillon region - so there's ample opportunity to sample local vintages, which include: Corbieres, Minervois, and Fitou. Food fayre includes popular international dishes along with Spanish and Moorish traditions - couscous and paella are available in most towns. A notable French speciality of the region is the comfort food 'cassoulet' a mix of beans and preserved meat.

La Cigalière is perfectly placed for exploring this stunningly beautiful region of France. It is positioned close to the Mediterranean between Montpellier and Beziers. The beaches of the Mediterranean are only 30 minutes drive as are the mountains, gorges and lakes of the ‘Haut Languedoc national park’ a walkers paradise. For those interested in history the area abounds with medieval towns and villages and close by are the haunting ‘Cathar’ castles. For the really adventurous the Spanish border can be reached in about 90 minutes and Barcelona a further 75 minutes.

La Cigalière will suit families or couples looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful region of France where they can stroll to a typical old village and enjoy a meal or a drink and where the stunning beaches of the Mediterranean are but a few minutes drive away. Access to the area is easy by air to Montpellier, Beziers, Nimes, Carcassonne or Perpignan
