We visited ‘La Cambuse du saunier’ today for lunch in Gruissan, 30 mins from La Souqueto bed & breakfast, South of France. An incredible place to eat… and our meal cost €28 per person! It’s based at the salt flats…wonderful colours, spectacular views of The Med and Pyrenees and superb locally caught fish and fruits de mer!
Gruissan is on the Mediterranean coast near Narbonne, between the hills of the Clape (rocky hillside of pine trees and vineyards known as the garrigue), the lakes frequented by the pink flamingos. Gruissan was originally a fishing village on a small island surrounded by marshland. The narrow streets of Gruissan village encircle the ruined 13th century castle tower.
Gruissan Plage is a marvellous wide open stretch of flat sand that guarantees you and your family plenty of space even in the height of summer. This is one of our favourite amongst all the Languedoc beaches. All the Languedoc beaches around this area of the coast are characterised by open, flat expanses of golden sand. Gruissan Plage has the extra kudos of being the setting for the French film, Betty Blue, a film about two passionate lovers living in a beach hut.
