Latest blog posts all the way from France

10th July 2012
I recently fancied a bit of history, well French history, as opposed to the English variety, so booked a late deal to France and got stuck in.

Headed to the Languedoc region, in the Aude department, which has more history than you can shake well turned walking cane at, with ancient cities & villages, thermal springs, abbeys, cathedrals, canals and castles, to name just a few.

We stayed in the Black Mountain region, which was about 20 minutes from Carcassonne, unless you followed the sat nav, in which case it was around an hour, and up the road from such gems as Saissac and Montolieu. Plus we were but a short drive from the Cather region, which contains the ancient castles of Queribus, Peyrepertuse and Puilarens, amongst its rugged, mountainous landscape.

So what with that and such beauties as Lautrec, Lastours and Lagrasse, and others not beginning with L, it was quite a trip, with plenty of highlights.

So, take a moment to visit the blog and immerse yourself in La France.
