South-Western France: “Languedoc”

We drive down to Languedoc, the magical south-western corner of France. In place of the ritzy resorts and traffic queues of the Côte d’Azur, Languedoc has charming little hotels, long sandy beaches and Roman aqueducts. The Paris fashion world regards this as the Rive Gauche Sud (the Left Bank of the South): a writers’ and painters’ refuge more than a stage for actors and media types to declaim from. Given the cultural associations of the region, this is hardly surprising: Salvador Dalí held that quirky Perpignan, home to Surrealists and Fauvists, was ‘the centre of the universe’.
