Abbaye de Villelongue - Saint Martin Le Vieil

An abbey that combines the austerity of the Cistercian tradition with the flamboyance of its sculptures and its romantic setting.

It has all the charm and poetry of a garden inspired by the middle ages but placed in what was once a monastic enclosure. It offers a fine example of architecture and sculptures that are typical of southern Languedoc Gothic of the 13th and 14th centuries.

In garden, enclosed by living osier fencing, cucumber and squash plants spill over the wickerwork and climb to invade the espaliered peach trees. Marrows and old varieties of tomato form part of the decor. On the rockery, plants grow that were used in the middle ages for their medicinal properties or for dyeing or decorations. Ancient tiles form a border to the flowerbeds.

The singing of parakeets mingles with the gentle sounds of the fishpond. This unusual and restful garden is somewhere really unique to visit.
  Specialities

For the last twenty years the Association of the Friends of the Abbey of Villelongue has offered a cultural programme of the highest quality which is appreciated by a knowledgeable and loyal public : classical music, Jazz concerts and exhibitions, to mention but a few.

The walls of the Abbey, accustomed to eight centuries of silence now resonnate each summer to the sounds of music, ranging from early music from the Middle-Ages to the music of today.

In the last fans have also been able to enjoy an evening of music .

Latticed willow hedges, an aviary, water features and a garden filled with gourds all entice the visitor into a voyage back in time. Here is a creative space filled with poetry for those with just a little curiosity..

Cabardès

A.O.C. Cabardès

The Cabardès region is situated to the west of Languedoc and to the south of the central massif, a geologist's dream, balanced between east and west, the sun and the coolness, the heathland and the mountain. It is here that the winds cross. They bring the intense mediterranean heat necessary for southern "cépages" (grape types) such as syrah and grenache, and the cool atlantic humidity for the ocean "cépages": merlot, cabernet-sauvignon, cabernet-franc, cot and fer-servadou, to prosper. The vineyards and wines of Cabardès have been recognized as AOC since february 1999. The quality of the grapes, the wine-making, the blending of the "cépages" and the keeping of the wines has allowed us to obtain the best balance between fruit and structure, fullness and complexity, intensity and elegance. Cabardès assembles 30 châteaux and domaines over 500 productive hectares spread amongst 18 villages. 20000 hectolitres are produced each year,of which 60% are exported....


Vin de Pays d’Oc,
Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays d’Oc, Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays means 'country wine' to the French, but to outsiders it can mean New World with a French accent. These are the wines which the French authorities unreservedly allow to be labelled with the grape variety from which they were made. It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of this large and growing category of wines for the future of the French wine trade. The French themselves may have tended to see any Vin de Pays as distinctly inferior to any appellation contrôlée wine, whereas many of their customers abroad see the better Vins de Pays as good-value, user-friendly, sometimes high-quality non-conformist emissaries from the world's most revered wine producer....

Casquette et Chapeau

Casquette et Chapeau - Montolieu



Casquette et Chapeau is a charming restaurant in the heart of Montolieu, le village du livre. It is typical of many such restaurants in villages across France, looking unremarkable and unexciting until you sample what it has to offer. Situated in a small square opposite the church, the best tables for lunch are outside under the shade of the plane trees, but the interior is also airy and welcoming. Service is as it should be, neither too fast nor too slow, and with just the right amount of attention. Remarkably, for France, customers without a reservation were welcomed at 2.00pm without fuss, which makes this restaurant even more exceptional than most...
