This summer we headed to Languedoc-Roussillon for our holiday, a bit like last summer we decided a house with a pool was the way forward and as long as there is plenty of good food & wine, somewhere to swim and relax that is pretty much all we need sometimes...
We stayed in a beautiful house in a gorgeous hilltop village and spent the days either lazing by the pool or visiting nearby sites and towns.
We loved the nearby town of Uzes, with its bustling twice weekly market and gorgeous town square where you can sit for hours and drink tea (or wine!) and watch daily life and night go by…we were there for the running of the bulls, a Languedoc tradition, which made for a bit of excitement in our otherwise sleepy holiday existence.
The other town we also loved was Nimes, on a grander scale to Uzes, Nimes offered us the gorgeous Colosseum and a Pantheon - Le Maison Carree - both relics of Nimes Roman heritage from before 28 BC. The town offered much history and some modernity, including the Carre d'Art which is housed in a building by the British architect Norman Foster.
Sitting here writing this now, uploading images of the gorgeous blue blue skies, we quite fancy popping back…soon!
