LOCATIONS & WINERIES

from the Languedoc-Roussillon episode

CHÂTEAU DE QUÉRIBUS

Château de Quéribus is the castle on top of the hill you see in the intro shot of the episode, built in the 10th-11th century.

NARBONNE

Narbonne is a hidden gem in the South of France. An old Roman Port and trading town, it's a good home base for exploring the region if you want a smaller city than Montpellier. You can even walk on an ancient Roman road, some of which has been uncovered right in the town square.

LES MAÎTRES DE MON MOULIN

Close to Château de Quéribus, the town of Cucugnan is home to a bakery that serves some of the best bread you'll ever have. It's a trek, but worth it!

LES MAÎTRES DE MON MOULIN

L'HOSPITALET BEACH

Owned by Gérard Bertrand, this restaurant is located right on the Mediterranean Sea. It is entirely constructed and then torn down each year! Visit it from May to September and enjoy the sunset and dinner overlooking the "Coast of Roses".

CHÂTEAU L'HOSPITALET

Château l’Hospitalet is the Gérard Bertrand hotel, resort, spa, and winery. With several restaurants on-site, tennis courts, a spa, several pools, and beautiful nature and vineyards, what more do you need?

GÉRARD BERTRAND WINERY

Of course, no visit to Languedoc-Roussillon is complete without tasting at Gérard Bertrand winery, located on the same property as Château l’Hospitalet. You may even catch the man himself hosting tastings or enjoying the vineyards!

LES HALLES DE NARBONNE + CHEZ BEBELLE

The market of Narbonne was voted the best market in France, and you can't visit Languedoc-Roussillon without getting some beef tartar from Chez Bebelle. Just watch your head when you order; flying meat inbound!

CHEZ BEBELLE

CARCASSONNE + COMTE ROGER

Carcassonne is the quintessential medieval castle town and a super popular tourist attraction. While the city is worth a quick stroll, the real gem is the cassoulet, a traditional stew of white beans, pork, duck, and sausage. The best version is made at Comte Roger!

MOON ROOM

Treat yourself to a once-in-a-lifetime experience at the Moon Room. Gérard Bertrand's fine dining experience meant to illuminate all the senses. Take a trip through the galaxy using sight, sound, taste, and smell!

MOON ROOM

SALT FLATS OF GRUISSAN

No, you're not on the moon. The Salt Flats of Gruissan have a mysterious pink glow in the water from an algae that occurs during the salt-making process. There's also a delicious restaurant and shop on site!
