Catalunya / Languedoc / Provence help needed

Hastings Pudding | Jul 16, 2002 05:26 PM

I am planning on spending a short couple of days driving from Barcelona to Cannes in mid-October. Arriving Barcelona on a Friday morning (overnight Thursday from NYC), and ending in Cannes for business Sunday evening, I will have time for lunch & dinner Friday, Saturday, lunch only Sunday. 5 meals altogether.

I know and love Spain. I do not know the Midi/Languedoc, or Provence very well. I have entertained the idea of staying in Barcelona until Sunday morning then driving swiftly across to make a Sunday evening engagement in Cannes.

I also know that in October, mushrooms (and truffles in Provence) are growing wildly and rampantly everywhere in the Pyrenees and beyond, and I would love to sample along the way.

Cassoulet also happens to be a favorite.

Could someone please send some recommendations for restaurants (and hotels) along this route. Cities and towns with charm and a bit of after-dinner ambience would be great as well.

Thanks in advance.
