The Languedoc-Roussillon area guide

Sights and attractions

With a beautiful stretch of coastline, salt water lagoons, a littering of historical reminders from yesteryear and the majestic snow-capped Pyrenees mountain range leering in the background, Languedoc-Roussillon is a vision of beauty.

The French region lies in the southernmost corner of France, bordering other French regions, Andorra and Spain and encompasses the following departments: Hérault, Aude, Pyrénées-Orientales, Lozère and Gard. You will soon come to discover that each department is incredibly diverse and presents a different view of Languedoc-Roussillon.

Lozère is situated in the north and is an area of unspoilt beauty. Many are seduced by the outdoor activities on offer in this remarkable department. From trout fishing to skiing and hiking through the Cevennes National Park (a mountain range), adventure enthusiasts will feel right at home. Whereas cities like Nimes are full of historical charm and character. And towns like Carcassonne boast monuments like the world-renowned medieval castle – The Château Comtal. 

On top of this, Languedoc-Roussillon is home to some of France’s most beautiful towns and villages. Sainte-Enimie, for one, sits on the slopes of the jaw-dropping Gorges du Tarn (a canyon) and is the perfect base for a holiday home. As are many of the other gorgeous villages, towns and cities found in the region.

Restaurants and cafes

As one would expect, the cuisine in Languedoc-Roussillon, like much of France, is exquisite. Meals are prepared with the freshest and finest of ingredients. Whether it’s the catch of the day from one of the many fishing towns or produce freshly plucked from the fertile soil, you’ll get a burst of true Languedoc flavour in every meal.

And there’s no better way to sample regional delights than via eating out. The region is home to a number of upscale venues and Michelin-starred restaurants offering delectable local and international dishes. La Bergerie in Aragon and Alexandre in Garons are two superb Michelin-starred eateries that more than satisfy your palate and often leads to repeat visits.

However, Languedoc-Roussillon’s most famed product is, of course, its wine. With acres of undulating vineyards – which are a magnificent sight in themselves – and a wide range of wines to pick and choose from, wine connoisseurs will be in their element.

Shops

If you’re a serious shopper, Languedoc-Roussillon may not be the first destination to pop up on your radar. Yes, it may not be one of the fashion capitals of the world, but don’t let that deter you. This delightful region is home to much loved high street brands like H&M and Zara as well as designer boutiques and quirky independent stores. A plethora of art galleries, antique stores and regional art and craft shops are also scattered around for you to peruse until you find treasures to place in your new home. Nimes, Montpellier and Pézenas are particularly great for a day of frivolous spending.

Markets can also be found at every turn in Languedoc. Whether it’s a flea, food or farmers market, you should make every effort to visit one to get a true sense of the diverse culture found in this part of France. The food market in Nimes is one that should not be missed as you can snap up tasty local produce as well as sample delightful delicacies in the process.

Travel

Thankfully, Languedoc-Roussillon is blessed with a reliable and far-reaching public transportation network. You can easily enter the country via train, plane, ferry or car. The two easiest and least time-consuming methods are, of course, plane and train.

With airports scattered around Languedoc-Roussillon, you can catch a number of flights into one of the major towns and cities in the region in just under 3 hours. The Eurostar, similarly, offers effortless travel into the region. From London to Montpellier it takes around 5 hours.

To travel around the region itself, many simply rely on the services of a bus or train. However, if you seek travel that’s undisturbed and enables you to discover the rural countryside and sights off the beaten track, investing in a car is a worthwhile purchase.
