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.

Excellent, couldn't ask for more. Like home from home. Very friendly, clean, and comfortable

5 of 5
Owners were very friendly and helpful. They booked in advance for us a Christmas lunch at a lovely local restaurant. The place was very warm, and well equipped, including English TV, and DVD player. The bed was large and comfortable, and excellent large shower. We would definitely stay their again if in the area.

Spotlessly clean. A real home from home. The house has everything you could want.

Lovely and quiet. Easy distance to other great destinations. Off road parking. Incredibly welcoming. And it was reaching temperatures of 16°C in January!!!

Spacious, beautifully equipped and with stunning views; a great base for exploring.

4 of 5
The house is modern and finished to a high standard, exceptionally well equipped; every room is spacious and comfortable. We had a very friendly welcome and Arielle, our host, had bought food at our request because we arrived on a Sunday when all shops are shut - there was also a gifted bottle of wine from Arielle's vineyard, which was most acceptable. The view from the house is beautiful hilly woodland and it is extremely quiet with only the very occasional passing car. We used the house as a base for exploring the hills and mountains to the north, the beaches to the south and Carcassonne to the west, and it is great to be within such easy reach of such contrasting and beautiful scenery. The nearest shops are some kilometres away, so planning ahead is needed for food shopping - but that was a small price to pay for the tranquillity of the location. Being sited above the Winery, there was some noise from about 7.30 am but this could just be in the Autumn after the grape harvest and during pressing - it would wake us, but didn't dominate. The outside space is limited, though very pleasant to sit out in for an evening drink, or for lunch. Cabrerolles is of the best equipped, spacious and comfortable Gites I have rented, with a very considerate host. It is not a 'stop at home' Gite but is a wonderful based for exploring a beautiful part of France. We had a very happy and comfortable stay - thank you.
