I am heading to the beautiful Languedoc region again at the end of June with my parents to stay in the beautiful Corbieres hills east of Carcassonne and just north of Perpignan. We love the local wine and food and the freindly people and amazing scenery. This is my 3rd visit in 4 years. we'll stay in Villa La Cascade - www.villalacascade.com
Hôtel Alizé Vieux Port, France
Tel: 33 4 91 33 66 97
A far more modest inn than most of those listed here, the Alizé has something none of the others do: the most envious location in town. This 18th-century stone building sits at the center of the U-shaped harbor, bang at the very heart of the Vieux Port overlooking the masts of bobbing boats. It's also quite a bit cheaper than the competition. However, make sure to book a sea-facing room since the focus of this basic hotel is the views. Tear your eyes from the harbor, and you'll notice the 39 smallish rooms have a rustic simplicity, brightened by saturated Provençal shades of yellow and blue and solid, unstained wood furnishings.
