Languedoc-Roussillon


Languedoc-Roussillon is a region immersed in history. Phoenicians, Romans and many other civilizations have left their imprint on both the landscape and culture of this land.

This region is located in the southern department of France and is bordered by Spain. Thousands of holiday makers flock to this region every year to experience the beaches and lagoons that form a sunbelt on the Spanish border to the mouth of the Rhone.

Camping in this area is a fantastic option but if that's not your cup of tea, gites and villas dot the countryside so you will never be far away from somewhere to lay your head.

Languedoc-Roussillon is such a diverse region due to its location. Much of this region is dry and sunburned, which is an area that produces almost half of the grapes for France's table wine. The whole area is a blend of ancient and modern, from solar power and ancient abbeys in the mountains, Roman temples and post-modern architecture in the municipalities.

Many visitors find the area so charming that they decide to either settle or buy a holiday home. If you're planning a house hunting trip you may wish to use the services of an agent such as La Roque Houses. Their British team specialise in property in the Languedoc region, helping prospective buyers through the process of finding and buying French property.
