Village holiday in Languedoc | Farm cottage in Mayenne

Village holiday in Languedoc

Fancy a bucolic retreat in the French countryside? Anyone can live the dream for a few weeks. Continental living has become an industry; the influx of English-speaking buyers has rejuvenated many fading towns and villages across France.

Half an hour from our rented cottage in rural Languedoc, the morning market in the venerable town of Pezenas has been staged every Saturday for six hundred years. Fromages des terroirs heralds a table groaning with cheeses in door-stopper wheels or melt-in-the-mouth wedges of soft Beaufort, Roquefort or a host of regional varieties.
