Canoeing down the River Orb, under a blue sky, water sparkling around us, shimmering hills to the left and shady trees on our right, was probably the brightest of many highlights of a month spent in France last summer.
Canoes and kayaks can be hired from Roquebrun, with a choice of excursions ranging from a gentle ninety minute meander, to a three day 'adrenelin' descent. We chose a five hour trip, which involved a few minor gorges, just enough to make us feel a tinge of recklessness. Our route had many lovely sandy bays, perfect for stopping and having a picnic, swimming or snoozing. The arrival back at the canoe base gave us a stunning view of Roquebrun. It's an impossibly pretty village, which sprawls up the cliffs above the Orb.
We stayed in Les Mimosas, a splendid 19th century maison de maitre, in Roquebrun and fell in love with it from the moment we saw it.
