Yearning for spring shows how much we are all craving freedom, warmth, and a simpler life. At this time of the year in the Corbieres, the anticipation is all… It is the looking forward to the sunny days ahead, to the moment where any cafe terrace in the villages is full on weekends, to seeing the dust float as if through laser beams in a sun-filled bedroom. The road from Villeseque-des-Corbieres to Leucate makes the promise of spring so resonant.
This 20-mn drive to the beach offers a variety of dream backdrops. The road winds along vineyards, lavender fields and olive trees.
Stone mounts, a XVIIth -century chapel, a XIIth- century catalan tower, you travel as much through time as through the various sceneries.
Once in Leucate, it is easy to soak up the charm of this quaint, quiet seaside village.
On the way to the beach one can stop by the oyster producers for fresh seafood tasting. A few more steps and there comes the Mediterranean sea. Just stroll away on the beach and take a long look…
