Cool days in Winter in Languedoc sparkle with possibilities - even a trip to Spain is easy

Although the days can be cool, the wind brisk, the sun bright - Languedoc sparkles with nature exuberant and sturdy. Vines cut for the new season, as are olives, freshly harvested. Trees gleaned of leaves, strike a strong pose against hills in Haut Minervois.

For those seeking a short adventure take a visit to Spain and go to Salvador Dali's Cadaques, and the wonderful Cap de Creus with magnificent rock formations - to taste the warmth of Summer to come (only 1 hour from Perpignan)
