Wine, Dine and Dream: Hotel-Restaurants in Languedoc Roussillon

As you can can tell from my previous posts, I am in love with the Languedoc Roussillon region of France. Aside from the fabulous sightseeing and wonderful weather (300+ days of sun a year), it has its share of charming and many-times inexpensive hotels with gastronomic restaurants. I wouldn’t call myself a “foodie”, but I do love good food, prepared by someone who loves to prepare good food, served with a glass of fantastic wine.

The following Hotel-Restaurants fill the bill.

Le Auberge du Vieux Puits $$
