Boasting not only a mild, sunny climate, but also an ideal location between the Cévennes, Pyrenees, Camargue and Mediterranean Sea, Languedoc-Roussillon offers visitors a beautiful mosaic of landscapes alternating between sandy beaches, lagoons, garrigue scrubland, vines, hills, wild gorges and mountainous terrain.
As well as its countless natural riches, which make it ideal for outdoor pursuits like hiking, kitesurfing or windsurfing, to name but a few, this magnificent region also enchants lovers of old buildings and architecture. Examples include the Cities of Art and History of Beaucaire, Carcassonne, Lodève, Narbonne, Nîmes, Perpignan and Uzès, charming villages like Castelnou, Eus, Sainte-Enimie, La Garde-Guérin and Lagrasse, or the majestic Cathar castles like Peyrepertuse, Quéribus, Lastours and Puilaurens.
Its rich gastronomic heritage, with such famous specialities as Castelnaudary cassoulet, cod brandade, Corbières wine, Blanquette de Limoux sparkling wine, Pélardon cheese and Cévennes honey, further add to the appeal of Languedoc-Roussillon.
As you explore the region, you can also admire Great Sites of France like the impressive Navacelles cirque, the celebrated Gard bridge or the famous Canigou massif. And for a romantic getaway, nothing beats a nice stroll or a boat ride along the peaceful Canal du Midi!
