Lake St Ferreol was created between 1667 and 1672 and is on the border of the Midi-Pyrenees and Languedoc-Roussillon regions. It is just a couple of kilometres south of Revel and west of Soreze at the foot of the Montagne Noire.

The lake is situated in the middle of pine forest covering an area of 67 hectares, holding 6.5 million m³ of water and was originally built to supply the Canal du Midi and is now listed as a World Heritage Site.

It now makes an excellent water sports centre, offering fishing, swimming, a beach with lifeguards during the summer season and many water based activities.

If you don't want to get wet, there are various walks including an English style garden and arboretum that includes a series of waterfalls and a water jet spraying up to 30 metres high.
  The Saint-Ferréol lake comes into view some 6 km from Revel. Here you are well and truly at the sources of the Canal du Midi. The Saint-Ferréol lake is an idyllic spot, perfect for bathing and just lounging. Created in the 17th century, this 67-hectare ornamental lake is at the heart of the exhilarating venture of the construction of the Canal du Midi. It is the masterpiece of its water supply mechanism: a complex, surprising system put into operation by Pierre-Paul Riquet.

To find out all about this structure, unique in the world, a visit to the Museum and Gardens of the Canal du Midi is a must. Opened in 2008 the museum situated at the foot of the lake wall is organised into 6 thematic rooms. It is a pleasure to explore them, to see them bring to life through models, audiovisual equipment, original documents etc., the epic creation of the Canal du Midi and also the singular personality of its founder. Built in the shade, besides waterfalls and the water shower of an opulent, romantic 19th century park, the museum and the Saint-Ferréol lake form a landscape and heritage of a remarkable quality. A must see!.

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....
