There's so much to see in Languedoc, and so much of it has such an intricate history, that having a someoneon hand to explain it to you can mean you get so much more out of the experience. The history of the region is impressive - spanning neolithic cave drawings, to the Greeks at Agde, Roman ruins of Nîmes, spectacular Cathar castles of the 11th century and other medieval forts and abbeys. (Click here to find out more about what there is to see in Languedoc.)

As well as giving you access to expert knowledge, your guides will also be able to make sure you visit only the best sites on offer, avoiding the less interesting sites that scatter the region.

See travel page on website for more info.
Who runs it?

Château de SalsesPhilippa Benson, who has customised a number of circuits for you to explore the rich cultural heritage sites in the area - you choose which sites you want to see and we tailor a circuit for you from Feuilla - allowing you not only to visit the sites, but to take in great scenery and local produce on the way.

 

After 13 years living and working in Paris, I then spent 8 in clean, green New Zealand, latterly running a luxury eco-lodge and have now fallen in love with the spectacular arid landscapes of the Corbières Maritimes and of course, the wonderful mediterranean climate!

 

Your stay will be co-hosted by Timbah the 13 year old lab cross (well travelled rescue dog from NZ!) and Mr Momo, an attractive, though rather self opinionated grey cat who has adopted us, both are friendly and well behaved.
