Languedoc-Roussillon is a fascinating region of Southern France. Before the now famous crusade against the Cathars and the Templar Knights, it was a wealthy country in its own right, with a reputation for liberalism and tolerance.

There is something for everyone in the Languedoc, with 300 days of sunshine a year in which to enjoy the breath-taking scenery and thousands of miles of trails for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. There are castles and chateaux to visit, markets and restaurants, plus rivers, lakes and the sea for swimming and water sports in the summer and skiing in the winter.

Languedoc-Roussillon is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrénées Mountains and includes 4 departments - Hérault, Gard, Aude and the Pyrénées-Orientales.
