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.

We found it really easy to get to from Beziers airport with a hire car (only 30 mins drive). Peaceful and tranquil, modern and spacious, open plan villa with all the mod cons for a family. Really enjoyed relaxing in the pool whilst the BBQ was cooking dinner! Lots of places to visit with amazing views, great history and the south of France coast line only an hour or so away. Would highly recommend this villa for groups of adults or families to enjoy. We will definitely be going back!

My partner and I had a wonderful relaxing holiday which is just what the doctor ordered! The house was spotless when we arrived and everything you could possibly need is provided. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage, the bathroom is amazing with large walk in shower and huge tub bath should you want it. The kitchen opens out at the back onto a large courtyard with somewhere to sit out and have your meals in the summer. The garden is not overlooked and has a lovely pool which is small but large enough to actually swim in... very welcome in the hot summer sun! Plenty of sun loungers for relaxing in and even fresh figs, plums, grapes and hazelnuts if you are there at the right time of the year. For cooler evenings there is a wood burner in the huge sitting room if you are there out of the summer season. The village has a shop, bakery and butcher and somewhere to even get take away pizza. There is a very well stocked supermarket nearby. We had a fantastic day out canoeing on the River Orb - definitely recommend it! The beach is about an hour away and the wonderful town of Pezanas is worth a visit with late night artisan shopping through atmospheric narrow lanes with plenty of places to eat. We even managed to go jogging around the village in the surrounding countryside if that is something you are interested in! All in all an amazing week. We would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

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.
