"A new travel book by Laurence Phillips is always a treat. A visit to cities like Paris and Lille without his appropriate guide is almost unthinkable. And he has done it again, with his usual delicious humour and gentle pace, but this time with Marseillan."

"The principal export of the port of Marseillan
is love at first sight"
possibly France's oldest village, is the perfect base for exploring
Languedoc - from Montpellier’s city lights to Herault’s rugged gorges;
from bustling Beziers to the vineyards of the back country; From the
canals of Sète to the olive oil presses of Clermont l’Herault.
In Languedoc-Roussillon, buy cheese from the goatherd, wine from the vigneron and oysters and fish from the pecheur. Seafood, sea-bass and sole come to Marseillan; the Mediterranean laps the shores of Marseillan; the Sun shines on Marseillan to bless the grapes on the vines and even the Canal du Midi brings barges all the way from the Atantic to Marseillan.
- Discover superb local restaurants - let lunch slip into supper and kiss your bonsoirs after the third bottle of wine
- After the harvest - dance with the winemakers
- Mooch around the markets and swap recipes with the locals
- Breakfast on the banks of the Canal du Midi, lunch on the lagoon and sip and sup under the stars
for regular printable news to keep your copy of the guide up to date.
When to come, Where to stay, Where to go, Where to wander, Where to wallow and Where to sit back and do absolutely nothing ...

"A new travel book by Laurence Phillips is always a treat. A visit to
cities like Paris and Lille without his appropriate guide is almost
unthinkable. And he has done it again, with his usual delicious humour
and gentle pace, but this time with Marseillan. Throughout the book is the occasional personal reminiscence tucked
neatly away into the sights, sounds and history of the region. Laurence
is a dedicated foody and there is superb, long section on the local
wines and arguably an even longer one on restaurants! But it’s not just
about food, wine, the towns and history. There are also tips on Getting
There, Getting Around, Buying Property and Where to Stay - in fact
everything you need from a good travel book." - FoodyTraveller.com

Not another comprehensive catalogue of every last monument, mountain, fountain and village, LazyFrance guides are written for travellers who appreciate the thousand and one joys of doing nothing.
Instead of a street-by-street survey of the cities, LazyFrance guides choose the best place for a lazy stay, where you can walk back to bed from a different restaurant every night, blend into the local scene and plan gentle drives that may never happen
Written by award-winning author Laurence Phillips, LazyFrance guides are designed for committed Francophiles looking to spend a weekend, week or a lifetime in sheer self indulgence.
Rather than a 100-page To Do list, a LazyFrance
guide is a 400-page after-dinner reminiscence of unforgettable days
done, memorable nights feted and endless summers that can still take the
When to come, Where to stay, Where to go, Where to wander, Where to wallow and Where to sit back and do absolutely nothing ... that’s LazyFrance .
