Freshly fruity and deliciously rich
Wildly beautiful Languedoc-Roussillon: as richly varied in its gastronomy as it is in its landscapes. From sunny Mediterranean beaches to medieval Cathar castles and Roman aqueducts, the choice is delicious.
Warm shades of ochre stimulate the senses with mustard yellow, melon-flesh orange, and deep wine red architecture in centuries-old villages. Sandy vineyards alternate with deep green forests, and meandering rivers add notes of reflected sky-blue, burnt sienna and umber. Small wonder so many artists have made their home here throughout time! For the gourmet, cherries, peaches and melons abound in sweet and savoury dishes. Ratatouille is a favourite local dish, alongside sweet-onion tart and foie gras with figs. Wine-making is an important part of life in this region, and there’s a generous choice of red, rosé and white wines to tempt the palate.
