Canal du Midi

Nothing is more delicious than to be aboard a canal boat on the Canal du Midi, in the midst of Summer, under the thankful shade of plane or other trees. Or to walk or bike along its shores, discovering rivers to swim in, or restaurants to ease in the afternoon.

South France Guide Photo of the Week - July 27 1997

Bridge (built 1308) Lagrasse

Walking the cobbled streets of Lagrasse in the Corbieres, one can easily be transported back in time. The bridge here dates back to 1308 and connects the walled town with the abbey that was founded under Charlemagne. This is a great artistic center, and there are many studios to visit, along with art fairs, to wander through.
