We are on our way home to Spain, this time we are going to stop off in Narbonne, this is not a place we have been to before, but would highly recommend it if you are in the area.
The town itself seems quite small, yet it is one of the largest communes in Aude.
We also find that this is one of the areas that produces the Corbières wine. We have to visit 'Les Vins du Palais' this is a fantastic wine shop, we select a number of bottles (some for our friends in Spain who still miss their French wine). We are surprised by the prices as some of the wine is very reasonable, we had always expected the caves to be very expensive.
We also pop into the Lidl store nearby and buy a lot of cheap French wine and the items of food we miss most in Spain.
We head into the town centre and find that parking is no problem. We stroll along the Canal de la Robine before heading in to the town square.
We find an amazing restaurant and know what we want to eat until we see the dishes being brought out, the food is fantastic and the prices very reasonable.
Once there we get the biggest shock, it is the only place in France that we have ever visited that reminds us of Blackpool in the UK!
It is lined with lots of cafés/restaurants and souvenir shops.
There is also a concert on the beach, we stop and listen for a while before heading back to the hotel
