Hôtel Estelou: Accommodation Partner for the Junas Jazz Festival in the South of France

This year, the French town of Junas will organise its 22nd annual jazz festival—and it has become a key date for French jazz fans. The Hotel Estelou has a partnership with the jazz festival and provides accommodation for its guests.

J’aime le Jazz

This year’s jazz festival will take place in two stages. It will begin with two days of concerts in the bullring at Vauvert before moving to the wonderful open-air quarries at Junas to complete one of the most important music festivals in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.

The Hotel Estelou is just five minutes from Junas, and hardy jazz fans can travel directly to the venue by bike.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to know more about the special rates that apply to reservations made in advance.

Hôtel Estelou: Accommodation Partner for Férias and Bullfights in the South of France

Every year, the French cities of Nîmes and Arles celebrate their saints’ days—in the spring and the autumn—by hosting ‘férias’, which are a great chance to experience traditional bullfighting in the South of France.

The Féria de Nîmes can trace its origins to the 19th century, and is held twice a year: during Pentecost, in May, and during the harvest, in the third weekend of September.

Bullfighting is not to everybody’s taste, but it is not the only part of the ‘féria’. It is above all a joyful occasion where Spanish culture mixes with culture from the South of France.

The ‘féria’ is essentially an excuse for a huge party which super-charges the town for three days, with bandas (parade bands) and bodegas (outdoor bars where everybody is welcome).

During the ‘férias’, you can also enjoy the food, stopping at a bodega to try that most traditional of Spanish dishes, paella. But of course, it’s best washed down with French red wine from Languedoc-Roussillon …

The Hôtel Estelou is less than 20 minutes from the centre of Nîmes. But if you are coming by car, don’t forget to designate a drive who will not be drinking.
