Charming holiday cottages for Sol y Fiesta in Leucate
We left our charming holiday cottages for Sol y Fiesta in Leucate. We are attending this festival each year because we are really fans of this event which celebrates the sun and the happiness in Occitanie. It always take place during the long week-end of the Ascension when you can feel that the summertime is not far. During two days this small village of the Languedoc area is full of artists who bring thier at and joy for the beginning of the summer holidays season in the South of France. Leucate is not far from our summer houses of Domaine de Puychene in Saint-Nazaire d’Aude and we are always happy to visit the wonderful beaches of Leucate-plage or La Franqui and to enjoy the mediterranean sea. This is a place where you can finf wonderful beach restaurants such as Biquet or Le Poulpe but also Le Grand Cap
(one star in the Guide Michelin) which stands on the top of nice cliff of Leucate. But during Sol y Fiesta the whole village becomes a huge restaurant with many places in the streets where you can taste a wide range of different products from France and elsewhere… It is also a good opportunity to taste some Corbiéres or Minervois wines. The main point is to be outside and to enjoy nice food and nice different shows. Performing in the streets is really popular in France and more and more artists are excellent in this direct art. The show in Leucate streets is permanent as many artists are invited each year from France, Spain, South america… We like to arrive in Leucate in the late afternoon because the the sunset gives fantastic colours to everything and you can feel the magic of the coming night. Each day of the festival always ends with a very poetic night show that gives you the envy to come back next year. See you there !
