The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
France is divided into 22 regions, roughly equivalent to states or provinces. Languedoc-Roussillon is a region in the south of France.

It stretches from the Mediterranean in the east to Castelnaudary in the west, the Montagne Noire in the north and the Pyrénées in the south.

When I think of the Languedoc-Roussillon, I think of colours, smells, tastes, textures, light and sounds. Tourism is relaxed. The wine is wonderful. Other than the Mediterranean beaches and resorts it's a relatively undiscovered vacation destination but is now been referred to as the “new Provence".

Wine production is one of the mainstays of the economy. The wine produced here has changed considerably in the past decade and has moved from a focus on volume to a focus on quality.

The Languedoc AOC Wines site has lots of information about wines including descriptions and how to taste wine.

Cathars and Languedoc are inexorably linked and in the heart of the Cathar region is the wine village of Ribuate, which is centrally located to explore the numerous Cathar Castles in the region like Chateau de Peyrepertuse and Cité de Carcassonne, as well as the various Abbey's like Benedictine Abbey and Abbaye de Fontfroide.

In general the climate is Mediterranean, hot dry summers, rainy winters, moderate spring and autumn.
July and August are hot and dry, temperatures around 30° C. September can be quite humid. October is a perfect month. The humidity is gone, the vines are changing colour, days are warm and sunny.

November and December are cooler but still very pleasant. Lots of sunshine. January and February are the winter months. Lots of rain, occasional frost and once in a while, snow. March and April are unpredictable, glorious sunny days with temperatures in the high teens interspersed with cloudy, rainy cool days.

May and June are usually very pleasant, lots of sunshine, nice warm temperatures.

The Lagrasse / Ribaute area
Ribaute is a tranquil wine village situated on the river Orbieu, where locals enjoy numerous activities like cycling amongst the vineyards, listening to the sounds of water rushing over the waterfall, swimming in the swimming hole, picnicking along the river banks and fishing.

The area around Ribaute is rich in natural beauty and boasts many beautiful walks like the Ridge Walk, Botanical Walk and Sentier Scupturel to name just a few.

Surrounded by the boundless vineyards, one can also take a wine tour of the region and discover some hidden gems. Harvest time is from mid to late September and there are usually harvest and music festivals around this time.

A visit to the France would not be the same without strolling through the food markets and Ribaute is in the heart of accessing all the various village markets and only 20 minutes away from the world famous Narbonne Food Market.

With the Mediterranean only 40 minutes away one can enjoy walking along the wild endless sand dune beaches or relax at one of the restaurants located at the beach, where you can sample the locally harvested oysters and sparkling wine from Linoux (the original French bubbly).

Wow - what a fantastic house! What a vision you must have had in converting it as you have - it's a work of art! So rustic-looking but really ultra-modern. So well-equipped and a real home from home. We loved staying there and hope to come again - it was perfect for our needs.

High spots were eating our meals (all lovely local produce) on the the roof terrace with fantastic views of the mountains. We loved the river bathing in Ribaute and we loved the walk across the mountains to La Grasse. On the last day we went to the Michelin 3-star restaurant at Fontjoncouse and that was an amazing experience.

So thanks very much - we loved it, we have some lovely memories and we look forward to returning to Vivre la Vie.

Best wishes, thanks
