Occitanie

The Languedoc-Roussillon stretches from the marshlands of the Camargue
to the foothills of the Pyrenees and is one of the largest and most varied regions of France.

Occitanie

Ancient towns and historical picturesque villages are mere specks on the vast tapestry of lush forests and seemingly endless beaches. Inland, the fertile rolling plains & vineyards, terraced hillsides and valleys yield their produce in abundance, especially the renowned wines like Cahors.
The expanse of Mediterranean sandy beaches extend from the border with Spain all the way to the Camargue with many seaside resorts to discover like the yachting harbours of La Grande Motte, Cap d’Agde and St Cyprien-Plage.

To the east there’s the village of Castillon-du-Gard and the amazing Roman aqueduct at Pont-du-Gard, the lively city of Nimes and it’s many Roman buildings, Montpellier – one of the oldest and distinguished uni towns, Perpignan and its Spanish influence and the gorgeous Cevennes National Park. Heading west lies the stunning medieval walled city of Carcassonne.

The Midi-Pyrenees is a region of great beauty with some of the oldest towns in France like Auch, the former capital of Gascony and home to the famous Three Musketeers. The pink city of Toulouse on the Garonne River, the charming town of Albi and its association with Toulouse-Lautrec. At the foot of the Pyrenees sit the spa towns of Ax-les-Therme and Cauterets and have been popular since Roman times. Lourdes welcomes over 3 million tourists a year and is the most visited place of religious pilgrimage in the world.
