Place Saint-Étienne, 31000 Toulouse, France
As with almost every tourist, I too asked what is probably the most typical and obvious question when entering this cathedral, and that is “What is wrong with this place?” or perhaps more politely, “Why is it so strangely shaped?” The cathedral is...

The only lament of eating great french food is drooling over the adjacent table's selections. We had a great meal of seared scallops and a fresh salad of roquefort and walnuts, but the table next to us ordered cassoulet and lamb shanks!

We booked a 300 year old villa for a week in Caunnes Minervois. Twenty minutes down the road we discovered the Castles of Lastours. Four independent structures built into the rocky formation, they were at the heart of Cathar activity, and ground...

Rue André Arnaud, 32500 Fleurance, France
The indigo night was still upon Kitchen-at-Camont when the alarm rang. My feet hit the wooden floor reluctantly, but coffee revived me enough to step out. The bright moon still hung over the ruins out back while the sun tinged the sky pink behind...

On having one Eurail pass and one day to spare between the big X's marked Paris and Barcelona, I craved the soothing ad-lib of a tiny, not-so-known area in the South of France. Bordeaux, Marseille… all remarkable cities I'm sure, however my...
