La Belle Ancienne

A bit of history

Languedoc is famous for its Roman architectural ruins and traces of the more recent history of the Cathar spiritual movement, that in the Middle Ages provoked a bloody persecution by the Catholic church.

Equally as prominent are the varied landscapes of vineyards and beautiful sunflower fields, highlighted by spectacular sunrises and sunsets against rolling hills or the soaring Pyrenees.

I couldn't possibly give more detailed information encompassing the Languedoc than the following encyclopedic link: The Languedoc.
Here you will find not only history, but geography, geology, architecture, food and wine tasting, and loads of other things to see and do - a site worth checking out.

What better way to learn about the land than from a native tour guide! Marie is available on appointment for nearby excursions. She is also a local artist, creating gifts exclusive to the area. You can find some of Marie's art at the markets or in her studio.
