Places to Visit

Southern French landscape

There is so much to do and see in Languedoc, that it was hard to know where to begin or what to include.

  • Languedoc’s Mediterranean coast –  lined with sandy beaches and bustling resorts from the Rhône to the Pyrenees;
  • Rolling hills, covered with vines and producers, whose Domaines are usually open for tasting, include such well respected wine regions such as St. Chinian. Many vinyards have employees who speak English;
  • Landscapes of garrigue – Mediterranean shrubland, spotted with sheep, with low resinous plants that survive the near-drought summer conditions, sprouting fascinating hill villages to explore;
  • Grand gothic cathedrals in the historic cities of Béziers and Narbonne;
  • The Camargue with its cowboys, flamingos, olive groves and white horses and black cattle;
  • Coastal lagoons full of oyster and mussel beds and wonderful seafood restaurants.
