Peyriac-de-Mer is one of the Languedoc’s most picturesque villages and the perfect place to enjoy delicious food and wine. From Peyriac-de-Mer, some of the south’s most attractive cities are easily reached: Narbonne, Carcassone, Barcelona… to name a few. Head north for the Corbières – a renowned wine producing region. Head south for the Mediterranean and its golden beaches. The Spanish border lies just beyond.
Écrin du Doul is very accessible and within three hours of nine international airports, the closest around forty minutes away. It’s also just an hour and a half drive to the nearest ski slopes.
L’Ecrin du Doul is located between Narbonne and Gruissan, just 4km from the golden beaches of the Mediterranean and close to Narbonne, one of the earliest settlements of the Roman empire on the Via Domitia, now a lively market town of 60,000 people, through which runs the Canal du Midi. Narbonne boasts a vibrant social scene, centred around the beautiful 19th century covered market, with its buzzy stands and bars. The picturesque fishing village and leisure port of Gruissan is also nearby.
L'Ecrin du Doul stands right at the foot of the Massif de la Clape, a national park whose majestic beauty and unique flora and fauna led to its protection as a unique natural heritage site, crisscrossed with walking and biking trails. La Clape AOP is also one of, if not the most, respected AOP (Appellation d’Origine Protégée) in the Languedoc-Rousillon region. The area is one of the driest and sunniest in France with up to 3,000 hours of annual sunshine per year.
Previously overshadowed by its ritzier Riviera neighbours, the Languedoc has recently emerged as a destination for travellers in the know, attracted by the region’s discreet allure - its sensational climate, rich history, cultural gems, beautiful coastline, vibrant fishing villages, rolling vineyards, superb restaurants and unrivalled food and antique markets.
