Languedoc-Roussillon is a sun-soak region that stretches from Provence to the Pyrenees, a mountain range that borders Spain. This beautiful region has a strategic border that it has held since Roman times, and is filled with history relating to this period, from the famous aqueducts to magical hilltop castles.
Today, Languedoc-Roussillon is better known for its vineyards, which produce a large amount of France’s wine. Some of the better-known wine varieties of this region are Vin de Pays d'Oc and sparkling Crémant de Limoux. The capital of the region, Montpellier, is a beautiful city that houses a wonderfully preserved medieval quarter.
Languedoc-Roussillon is split into three main areas, with each of which having their own distinct landscape and character. Bas-Languedoc is the coastal area that is home to some beautiful beaches, and of course the captivating cities of Montpellier and Nimes. Further inland is Haut-Languedoc, a wilder and more countrified area that is home to Parc National des Cevennes, which is home to hills, caves and forests. Then, to the southwest is Roussillon, which is situated on the Spanish border, close to Catalonia.
