Gay Rieux-Minervois

France

Rieux-Minervois, Languedoc, France.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Whilst medieval Carcassonne has many attractions with its fairy tale turrets and ramparts, the Minervois itself has a history dating back 2,000 years. Today Minervois is the most famous wine-growing area of the Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France. But there is much more to discover than wine: prehestorical grottos, countless Roman churches, the abbey of Caunes near Rieux-Minervois, beautiful villages along the Canal du Midi.

Rieux-Minervois has very few gay and lesbian hotels, guesthouses or bed and breakfast accommodations. However, there are some gay friendly hotels, inns, guesthouses and bed and breakfasts that will meet the needs of the gay and lesbian traveler.

The medieval village of Rieux-Minervois dates back to the 11th century. It is typically French, with a twice weekly market and a very French laid back atmosphere. The town is laced with narrow winding streets and traces of ancient houses and the historic castle overlooks the river. Rieux lies on one of the pilgrimage routes leading to Santiago de Campostela. The very rare 12th century heptagonal church, with its superb columns built by the master of Cabestany is tribute to the pilgrims.

The Canal du Midi runs through the whole of the region from Carcassone towards Castelnaudary. With its tree edged banks lined with restaurants, cafés and bars, the canal provides some wonderful ways to relax and unwind.

Cathar castles, for example Les Chateaux de Lastours and other beautiful medieval villages, such as Minerve and Lagrasse, are all within easy reach of Rieux-Minervois. For gay and lesbian travelers wishing to visit the Mediterranean coast and its beaches, or the region’s coastal towns of Narbonne, Agde and Sete all are within easily of Rieux-Minervois.

Today Minervois is the most famous wine-growing area of the Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France, offering amazing quality and value for money. Rieux-Minervois is conveniently located for the wine centres of the Languedoc such as Limoux, Fitou and the Corbieres. Wine lovers can sample some of the best local wines from the cellar or visit several of the Domains for sampling.

So, whether you are looking for relaxation, history, nature, spectacular scenery, great regional food and exceptional wine, Rieux-Minervois, Languedoc offers it all for the gay and lesbian traveler.
