Lodeve - The culture of Lodevois

Lodeve is in the Languedoc but it is acknowledged by the locals as part of the Midi and boasts a Mediterranean climate of blue skies and sunshine. The city is a typical French hill town with narrow alleys and high buildings, but very much a working town, rather than a tourist town, but it has excellent restaurants and shops.

This is an area of outstanding beauty renowned for a diversity of outdoor activities including walking, (with 200km of signed walks and cycling routes, as well as sailing and other water sports at the nearby Lake Salagou).

Historical architecture includes the Cathedral of Saint Fulcran, the medieval bridges and the nearby village of St Guilhem Le Desert, the fortified Cathar villages and the spectacular Cirque de Navacelles. Modern taste is more than catered for by the spectacular Millau Bridge over the river Tarn in the foothills of the Massive Central Mountains.

The annual Literary Festival in July attracts people from all over Europe to see the exhibitions and listen to the street-side poetry reading and music.

Lodeve has an outstanding Saturday Street Market selling local produce including the wines of Languedoc, Rochfort Cheese and of course an abundance of fresh local fruit, vegetables and other produce.

A feature of the Lodeve is the frequent pilgrims on route to St Jacques de Compostelle in Northern Spain. The route passes through the middle of Lodeve and walkers, cyclists, and horse riders, often dressed rather eccentrically, are frequently seen in the town, adding to the cosmopolitan dress of the residents. The sign of a shell carved above doors on some of the older houses is a sign of hospitality for the pilgrims.

Lodeve is an ideal base to explore the mountains to the North and the beaches to the South.

There was a huge heated pool, solar powered shower by the pool, with pool toys for young kids. At least 6 outdoor tables and chairs - and some really smart rattan furniture on upper and lower terraces, with wonderful views of the hills to watch the sunset in the upper terrace and sip a glass or two. Large comfy lounge with all you could need - large dining suite -TV DVD CD books by the dozen etc. Great covered BBQ area and table beside. The kitchen had everything you could need - big table and great equipment too. Bedrooms comfy - plenty of wardrobes - great family bathroom - en suite on the main - another toilet and shower room in the pool suite - and another shower and toilet in the sports room. The sports room has a table tennis table - pool / snooker table football , air hockey, darts and another set of comfy chairs to play on the PlayStation with lots of games for the kids. It was truly superb and immaculately clean. We loved to walk to the village - 5 minutes away and buy some local produce from the shops - bakery and a few other friendly general stores. We also ate in the cafe at the square a few lunchtimes - good food and nice wine. We thought the directions to the house were excellent and sensibly advised us not to go through the village in the car on arrival as some streets are narrow and a challenge till you get used to them and the directions / route we followed were great and no hassle at all. Overall it is an exceptional villa and We would happily go back any time.

As kind as the weather was, since we stayed in September/October, we didn't use the pool but it will be a real treat in summer. There are all the facilities of home which make a long stay easy plus so much space and facilities ... The pool table is a particular treat although I wished I had visited Dennis Taylor's optician for a pair of those glasses! The satellite TV was a bit flaky, more so late at night during Match of the Day! The house is situated in a delightful village typical of the region but close to other types such as Puissalican, a circulade. It is surrounded by so many places to visit (far too many to list although St Guilhem le Desert is always my favourite) that there will always be somewhere to please everyone - and more vineyards than you could possibly visit. A great holiday.
