Languedoc-Roussillon Province of France

Due to the long hot sunny days, the Languedoc-Roussillon region has become a popular French holiday destination for relaxing days on the many unspoilt Mediterranean beaches. 

But with thousands of kilometres of walks, and horse rides, National Parks and wildlife reserves, thermal springs, spas and caves it provides a range of activities for a holiday of sightseeing.

For those of you who are more adventurous, there are numerous sporting activities, which include a wide range of land sports such as hiking, cycling and mountain biking, water sports such as jet skiing and sailing, air sports, and mountain sports.  Hunting, golf, fishing, and skiing are other activities that are also on offer in this area.

The Pyrenees provide even more vigorous exercise thanks to the higher altitudes

The Parc Naturel Regional du Haut-Languedoc area covers more than 2,600 square kilometres of mountains, rivers, lakes and forests, with pleasant towns such as Bedarieux and St-Pons-de-Thomieres to use as a base for a walking or cycling holiday.  At the southern most point of the Massif Central, it includes the Montagne Noire, Monts de Lacaune, Monts d'Orb and Mont Caroux.

If you are into your history then a visit to the 14th-century St-Nazaire cathedral is a fine example of Gothic architecture, but if you are up to it, then please make the effort to climb to the top to get fantastic views of the Orb river, which winds through the city and surrounding countryside.

The Pont du Gard, an aqueduct that spans the Gardon River near Uzes is an impressive feat of Roman engineering. Although much of it had to be restored during the 18th and 19th centuries, there is enough of the original Roman construction for it to be classed as a World Heritage Site and is one of the top tourist attractions in France.

Nimes has been described as the French Rome and it is not surprising. Venture into 'la centre ville' and you will come across one of the finest remaining examples of a Roman Coliseum in the world.  It was constructed with stone at the end of the first century AD and it still stands virtually intact today.

So whether you wish to relax on sandy beaches, re-live history at a medieval fortress, see wild horses, or experience the local cuisine, the Languedoc-Roussillon region really does have something for everyone whilst on holiday in France.
