Cities in Languedoc-Roussillon

There so much sightseeing in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of the south of France that you’d need a long time there to get through it all. To be fair, it is a vast area – stretching from the Pyrénées in the south up to the Camargue and Provence in the east, and thousands of years of conflict and change have left it an unending collection of spectacular castles, ruins, abbeys and villages.

The region’s 220 km-long coastline tempt visitors to have fun in the sun whilst inland there are a wealth of historical sights to keep you busy. France’s western Mediterranean coast is a hotbed of windsurfing. Gruissan, about 10km away from Narbonne on the coast, offers both sea and lake windsurfing options.

The Charm of Languedoc Roussillon is captured in hundreds of villages, each with an unique character and individual charm. Predominantly a wine growing region, many villages are famous for excellent individual wines. France is the country for wine and the Languedoc Roussillon region produces more annually than the whole of Australia!

Airports in Languedoc-Roussillon include Carcassonne, Beziers and Perpignan.
