The Area

The Languedoc area of France is nature at its best, from the Camargue in the west to the eastern end of the Pyrenees. From the wild and lonely Causses to the sunny Mediterranean coast. Across highly scented garrigue and sun-soaked vineyards, there is an incomparable variety of scenery and fascinating towns and villages to discover.

A land of many influences and a fascinating past, Languedoc-Roussillon has a superb architectural heritage covering over 2000 years of history. The soil is rich and the culture a blend of many     

The whole region is dominated by vineyards, and much life revolves around the production of wine. Languedoc-Roussillon claims to be the largest vineyard in the world, and anyone who has spent a holiday here wouldn't argue with this.

Take a bike ride along the winding little roads through the vineyards (bicycles can be hired close by) or take a short drive to the beaches of the Mediterranean.

Cap d'Agde has some 14 kilometres of fine beaches and many attractions for the children like 'Toonland' and the famous 'Aqualand' with its giant flumes, water slides and wave machine as well as a super 'tots area' for the very young. Valras, a splendid Mediterranean resort with a wonderful sandy beach and a play area right on the beach for the children.

As well as beaches, there are beautiful lakes, mountains and gorges within one hours drive. Just 30 minutes away, the Heric gorge is one of the most outstanding beauty spots in the Espinouse mountain range. The walls of the gorge are the finest rock faces in the region and the area is popular with walkers and climbers. The paths and rock pools provide a wonderful venue for a days exploring and picnicking. The is a super little scenic road train that takes visitors on a picturesque route as far as the Gouffre du Cerisier when you can chose either the train to return or take a splendid walk back down past the rock pools and foaming waters of the Heric. Swim under the many waterfalls, work up an appetite for a delicious open air feast of local cheese’s and meats washed down with a bottle of Languedoc wine.              

The area has large numbers of medieval towns and villages to visit including Pezenas (15 minutes drive), St Guilhem-le-Desert (about 25-minute drive) and the Cite of Carcassonne (about 1-1/2 hours away but worth the trip). Just over an hour’s drive will take you to the heart of 'Cathar' country with its imposing castles and monasteries such as Montsegur and Queribus.

--Dear Amanda,

This is a short email to say just how pleased we were with our stay at the Mas du vigneron for the last two weeks. Your remark that the owners were very pleasant people was absolutely true. Francoise and Daniel proved to be the nicest hosts that I have encountered anywhere in the world (and I have been to every continent)…. Anyway, thanks for all your help and please pass to Daniel and Francoise our gratitude and pleasure at staying at their villa.
