Narbonne

September 11, 2011

On this memorable day, this blog serves to re-introduce the writer to the new subscribers and there are quite a few …!

I live in the South of France, in the region Languedoc-Roussillon which shares it’s border with Spain (the Barcelona area) and more specific in the department of the Aude (which is also the name of the main river there).

The Aude is famous for it’s history about the Cathars, for it’s mysteries about Mary Magdalene, it’s enigmas about the Knights Templar and their hidden treasures but also for a very rich and highly cultured Gothic past, reflected in the city of Toulouse, which was then the capital of the Languedoc.

Today’s picture is from the city of Narbonne, situated on the seaside at the Mediterranean sea, center of trade activities and the heart of Roman and Vatican connections during the Middle Ages.

Narbonne is a very convivial small city: lots to see, beautiful terraces to have your coffee or a lunch break and a nice atmosphere.

And this is where I come in: I act as a guide for singles and couples who want to make a personalized tour in the south of France. What do I do for my clients: I draft an itinerary that suits your personal preferences and I will even be your companion and storyteller should you want that. I take care of collecting you at the airport or train station. I drive you to your hotel and I will drive you around to your chosen destinations if you do not want to venture on your own.

Just contact me and we will make arrangements for 1 day or a whole week: houseoftherose@gmail.com.

Enjoy the area already on this blog site, but be aware that the real thing is even more impressive ….
