Food & Wine


Good food is extremely important to the people of the region, as arguably it is across the whole of France. Work stops religiously each day for a couple of hours at lunchtime as friends and family dine together. Eating is an extremely social affair here and meals can often take in several courses and last for hours as bits of news and gossip are exchanged around the table.

The Catalan food is traditionally based on simple dishes made from fresh local ingredients.  However in recent years Catalan food has undergone a gastronomic transformation and some of world's most renowned restaurants can be found in Spanish Catalonia along the Costa Brava (less than 30 minutes from here). This culinary transformation has been quick to spread throughout the region and lovers of fine food and wines will not be disappointed.

The Languedoc-Roussillon is currently one of the world’s most interesting wine making regions and its huge range of wines are widely acknowledged by critics and experts alike as worthy of attention, awards and accolades. A trip to the area would not be complete without a "degustation" at at least one of the stunning local vineyards.
