During our holidays in Languedoc we were charmed by the general good mood of the people in Narbonne and in the whole area. We enjoyed during more than 10 years all good things that Occitanie can offer around Saint-Nazaire d’Aude where we have our summer house : the Mediterranean sea, the city of Carcassonne, Corbières and Minervois hills, the sunny South of France, all places which make you happy during your holidays in France. We always shared good moments with our family and friends who visited us in Saint-Nazaire d’Aude to spend their holidays in our holiday house close to Narbonne and to enjoy the swimming-pool. They really enjoyed the sun of Languedoc, the beaches of Gruissan and Leucate, the wines of La Clape, the landscapes of the Fontfroide Abbaye, and more… They really have time to slow down and to enjoy each minute when visiting for example Minerve and Lagrasse. This is what we wanted to share when we renovated Domaine de Puychene by creating a place where families could share good food and good moments in nice renovated holiday cottages nearNarbonne. We always try to find out what our guests really need and we realized that many of them wanted to enjoy the last diner of their holidays not in a restaurant but at Domaine de Puychêne. However without cooking by themselves… So with Aurore, our wine teacher who loves cooking, we proposed first a « pic-nic basket ». But they all wanted to share it with their new « summer friends ». So we changed the formula and proposed a buffet to be shared outside in the warm Languedoc evening, on long tables in the alley of Domaine de Puychene. A good moment to talk about the holidays and to discover what Aurore prepared. Because we never know in advance what Aurore will cook as she finds her inspiration directly on the market, a few days before… Everything is fresh, organic and local. Aurore is always looking for the best quality. This diner nearly all families is really a good moment to share and a good souvenir. Some families staying 15 days often come twice ! Bon appétit !
