The region: the Languedoc-Roussillon is a jewel, a land to be explored and enjoyed...

The Languedoc-Roussillon has a very rich, diverse character and offers three hundred and sixty days of sunshine per year.

The region is ranked 13th in Europe for population growth.

It owes its vitality to the exceptional beauty of the landscapes. From the Pyrenées-Orientales to the Lozère, from the Aude to Gard, not forgetting the Hérault... What is striking are the close links that have developed between the landscapes and the architecture, and between the villages and their inhabitants.

The Languedoc-Roussillon Region is a land of contrasts where, from the Mediterranean to the Pyrenees, from the Cevennes Mountains to the Corbières, the wild beauty of the sites is only equalled by the magical charm of the 220km of beaches along the Mediterranean coastline.

This richness has resulted in the designation of six World Heritage sites (Causse and Cévennes, the walled town of Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi, the Pont du Gard, Santiago de Compstela, the Vauban fortresses).

And of course, the gastronomy and wines of the South of France are a treat for gourmets.
