Christmas Present List: Book a South of France Holiday in Languedoc
Friday, 7 December 2012
Traditional Festivities do, of course, vary from country to country and France is no exception, like some of its European counterparts the French have their main celebration on Christmas Eve – Le Réveillon de Noël – when the family gathers together for an evening of Gastronomic delights – often an enormous seafood platter to start, ending up with a Büche de Noël – followed by Midnight Mass.
Expectant children leave their shoes in front of the fire for Père Noël!

Christmas Day too is a very important “foodie” event and will often include a more traditional menu perhaps rabbit or coq au vin.
In particular, access to the undiscovered jewel of the south, the Languedoc region, around Beziers and Montpellier, has been made so much easier with the advent of No-Frills airlines.
The airport at Beziers makes onward journey times short to get to South France Villas rental properties near the beach where the sea is shallow, ideal for young families. Starting from only £140 per person per week – great value for money – you can have the pick!
