Holiday in Languedoc-Roussillon
Despite being popular with families from the north of France, Languedoc-Rousssillon often still has to compete with Provence for foreign visitors. This makes it a well loved but not overrun place to go in the summer for a break in the sun. With beautiful beaches like those at Cap d’Agde, quaint coastal towns like Marseillan and stunning mountain villages like Lagrasse and Bages, you have a wide range of holiday towns and villas in Languedoc-Roussillon to choose from. The region’s capital, Montpellier, is a beautiful Mediterranean city with white marble stone alleyways and tall terraced houses leading to hidden squares. Don’t be alarmed to hear locals address one another in the ancient language of Occitan, of which the region is fiercely proud. When it comes to eating your way through Languedoc-Roussillon, start with the regional specialties Bourride (fish cooked in garlic), Roquefort cheese and Crème-Catalane desert, which are all popular representations of the area’s cheap and cheerful approach to cuisine that doesn’t compromise on flavour. There are also many brilliant restaurants within the walls of La Cité in Carcassone serving up the region’s most famous dish of Cassoulet (a meat and bean stew). The lively city of Narbonne is considered the birthplace of not just regional but the national French wine culture and famous wines from Languedoc-Roussillon perfect to accompany this dish include strong, full reds like Corbières and Fitou.
