Canal du Midi - The Villages GroupMarch 2013
Located on the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Canal du Midi, the village will be perfect as a hide-away but close enough to the Med to make the most of all that France has to offer.
The Canal du Midi has become a popular tourist destination in its own right due to the beauty of the waterways and surrounding countryside. Initially used to transport good from the Atlantic to the Med - the Canal has now become a tourist attraction and place for leisure activities, with many people rowing, canoeing, fishing or even cruising on luxury hotel barges.
The Languedoc-Roussillon is easily accessible by air, rail and road. With five main airports in Nimes, Montpellier, Carcassonne, Beziers and Perpignan as well as other airports nearby in Toulouse, Avignon, Marseille and Girona the most popular way to reach the region from the UK is by air. A number of low cost carries fly direct from the UK including Flybe, Ryanair, Bmibaby and EasyJet.
The Villages concept is certainly not a place where the older generation go to live out their remaining days in seclusion. For us, we have a positive forward thinking approach about our own Villages in France, providing a lifestyle that we believe will be most attractive to active 50+s who want to live their lives to the full in one of the top ten expat countries in the world that affords a relaxed pace of life, stunning natural landscapes and low living costs.
