Activity Holidays - We Need You

Our Languedoc tourism pages are pretty comprehensive, but something we've always wanted to add is a section on Activity Holidays in the region. We're hoping to gather all those wonderful painting, walking, photography, singing, fishing, cycling holidays that are organised each year, and list them in one user-friendly page. So if you run an activity holiday of any kind in the Languedoc Roussillon, or know anyone else who does, please do e-mail us with your / their details. It won't cost you or them a centime to be listed on the site, and could well bring in plenty of new business in these difficult times.

The Property Market

We recently visited the France Show at Earls Court in London - where the 'big guns' ply their property wares. Rather than finding them all with heads in hands, most were surprisingly upbeat - saying that the lower prices of property in the Languedoc at the moment, combined with France being a 'safe bet' have helped to keep property sales relatively buoyant. At Creme de Languedoc, we've been surprised to find our website visitor levels and property sale enquires are at the same levels as this time last year. We expected a fall. So perhaps Languedoc will prove credit-crisis-proof after all! You can read about the France Show by clicking here.


Creme de Languedoc is proud to offer you the best listing service for the Herault. WOW (What's On Where) is provided by Robin Hicks and covers local events and news that is updated monthly. It often surprises folks who are considering relocating to the region just how much there is going on in the winter months. To see what there is to do in the region this month please click here.

Free Goodies!

There is such thing as a free lunch! Roujan based Lizzie Betts-Gosling has created a simple and effective website for us all to pass on that unwanted 'stuff' to others - for free. If you live in the Languedoc region this is a great service to check out before you head out to buy something, saving you money and helping to free up storage space for the person offering the item. Of course, if you are also searching for an item, you can place an ad. Check out the site and the current 'giveaways' at: http://www.cestgratuit.org/

eBook - the best €4.95 you will ever spend!

Don't forget, for those of you currently looking to buy property in France, or who know anyone who is, you might be interested in our new eBook: French Property - An Insider's Guide. Written by French property experts, it outlines, over 43 pages, everything you need to know (and that agents won't tell you) about buying a property in France. It costs only €4.95 (including TVA) and could save you thousands of euros and inordinate amounts of time and heartache. Unlike more expensive books on French property, it gives you punchy, up-to-the-minute facts and advice - with all the waffle stripped out - so that you can avoid mistakes and make the most of your purchase as quickly and easily as possible. Click here to find out more about our new eBook - and how it can help you make the most of your French property purchase.
