Roucan West campsite
Gerry and Harry felt as though they had been on an adventure holiday last week but this week we had a more relaxing time planned. We arrived at Vias Plage on Sunday to a campsite we had previously booked right next to the sea. The location was marvellous but first impressions of the site were not. The pitches were quite small and the seafront side of the site had a high,ugly perimeter fence either to keep us in or intruders out! It turned out to be quite a noisy site with a lot of french families still on holiday as well as the group of retired campers mainly from Holland and Germany. As it turned out we had a great 6 nights there enjoying the sun, the sea, the sand, the pool, the bread, cheese and wine and the nearby old town of Vias. There had been entertainment most evenings in our bar or music from other bars along the beach could be heard which we didn't mind - we actually enjoyed listening to Sexy Toys, a tribute band who played one evening! However we decided to move on after the young bar staff decided to play music

at full volume at quarter to twelve one evening for themselves and half a dozen friends!
It was definitely for the best because it meant that G & H came to Carcassonne with us, a fortified medieval town which is amazingly complete and restored to its original glory. A dream for photographers! G & H treated us to a lovely meal in the evening where we sampled wild boar and a local duck and pork cassoulet, a fitting end to an excellent fortnight.
We then returned to Beziers where we stayed near to the airport on an excellent all singing, all dancing 5 star holiday village for the final night before we dropped our guests at the airport on Monday. Another holiday to remember, thanks G & H - who's going to do the washing up now?
