Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon : the Real South fr

With the region’s exceptionally diverse natural, historic, cultural and gastronomic assets, Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon destinations cannot be described in the singular. Hence, like the region’s wines, food and agricultural products and identity, Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon destinations are conjugated in the plural.

Languedoc-Roussillon is the French Region that calls upon your every sense. To begin with, it enjoys a minimum of 300 days of sunshine a year and there is so much to do, so many places to discover. From the Pyrénées-Orientales to Lozère, from Aude to Gard, through Hérault, the close links between landscape and architecture, between villages and inhabitants are obvious.

In addition to six splendid sites listed as World Heritage by Unesco (the city of Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi, the Vauban fortresses of  Villefranche-de-Conflent and Mont-Louis, the Saint-Jacques-de-Compostella pilgrimage routes, the Pont du Gard and the Causses and the Cévennes, cultural landscape of the Mediterranean agro-pastoralism), Languedoc-Roussillon is a land of contrast where the wild beauty of places such as Aubrac or the Navacelles corrie can be equalled only by the soothing charm of its 220 km of fine sandy beaches and its hundreds of kilometres of rivers and canals.

With dynamic cities home to a wealth of museums and festivals, country villages, winegrowing areas and hostelries eager to give you a taste of regional gastronomy, you will appreciate the authentic nature of the welcoming land that awaits you.

Welcome to this South, where you will no longer wish you were elsewhere.
