Introducing Clive Fowler, in the ‘affordable South’

After trying out several regions of France, Clive Fowler was seduced by the ‘dramatic landscape and dramatic history’ of the Languedoc/Midi-Pyrenees.

With the Med to the south and the Haute Pyrenees to the west, the dramatic Montagne Noire provides a stunning backdrop to this beautiful region. “I felt the call to France in 1989 in search of something else; I was not disappointed. As an artist and musician/composer in my spare time the romance of the Land of the Cathars is not wasted on me, nor the cuisine and fine wines on offer,” says Clive.

“My home town Labastide-Rouairoux, a great up and coming town, a formerly celebrated textiles centre, offering chateaux, maisons bourgeoises, and homes for the workers – it’s one of the most affordable areas in the south.” It is just an hour from the coast, with the choice of four international airports: Béziers, Carcassonne, and Perpignan, all around 1h15 drive and also Toulouse at 1h30 mins, Montpellier 2 hrs.” Nearby Mazamet, famous for leather, has similarly affordable and impressive properties.
