The Languedoc area of France is nature at its best, from the Camargue in the west to the eastern end of the Pyrenees. From the wild and lonely Causses to the sunny Mediterranean coast. Across highly scented garrigue and sun-soaked vineyards, there is an incomparable variety of scenery and fascinating towns and villages to discover.
A land of many influences and a fascinating past, Languedoc-Roussillon has a superb architectural heritage covering over 2000 years of history.
The whole region is dominated by vineyards, and much life revolves around the production of wine. Languedoc-Roussillon claims to be the largest vineyard in the world, and anyone who has spent a holiday here wouldn't argue with this.
Take a bike ride along the winding little roads through the vineyards (bicycles can be hired close by) or take a short drive to the beaches of the Mediterranean.
