Languedoc is one of the least expensive areas of France with the hottest and driest climate.
Narbonne is only 15 minutes drive away from the house and is brimming with shops, cafes and restaurants, and historical interest.
Nartonne is only minutes from the coast (Narbonne Plage); the Corbieres wine area and the tranquil waters of the Canal du Midi which meanders through the vine filled plains of the Minervois.
Attractions in the area: the medieval fortified city of Carcassonne, Cathar castles of Queribus and Peyrepertuse. Golf, tennis and cycle hire. Riding, walking fishing, swimming, and canoeing along the crystal clear waters of the rivers Orb, Cesse and Aude, or splashing under the waterfall at the ancient village of Roquebrun.
Roman remains in Nimes, the famous Pont du Gard; stunning gorges, grottoes, canyons and the magnificent vineyards of the Minervois and Corbieres with abundant wine tasting.
The long sandy Mediterranean beaches are half an hours drive away - Narbonne Plage with its cafes, bars and ice-cream parlours. Gruissan, a beautifully landscaped resort full of flowers, palm trees and oleander bushes, with a chic new marina, old port, and pink flamingos.
