The Languedoc-Roussillon region
One of the most beautiful unspoilt spots in the South of France bordering Provence and the Camargue. This historical location is close to stunning Mediterranean beaches and resorts. Nearby is the Camargue National Park which is famous for its wildlife - white horses, black bulls and pink flamingoes. Within an easy drive there is access to Roman Amphitheatres at Arles and Nîmes and for a day trip try the Ardeche Gorges and Cevenes Mountains.
The Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the most fascinating areas of Europe, bordering the Mediterranean Sea to the east and the Pyrenees Mountains to the south. It benefits from an exceptional climate (280 - 300 sunny days per year) and has an unusually rich wildlife, a spectacular coast and surprising history.
Things to see include mountains, rivers and lakes, ancient cities, towns, villages, vineyards, thermal springs, abbeys, and cathedrals, châteaux and castles and notably the famous mountain fortresses popularly known as Cathar Castles. It possesses a number of World Heritage sites, including Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi, and the Pont du Gard.
In 1240, Saint Louis decided to build a walled city - Aigues Mortes - close to his kingdom in order to have a direct access to the Mediterranean Sea. Seven centuries later, the fortification still dominates the Camargue as one of the most well preserved medieval French buildings.
Today, Aigues Mortes preserves its bull-fighting traditions, including bull branding. Blessed with a clear climate and unique vegetation, the region of Aigues-Mortes can be explored all year long whether on foot, on horseback, by bike or even on safari in a 4x4 or by boat.
Hire your own boat, and use the private mooring, for picnics along the canal or take it for day trips out to the Mediterranean sea. Book a canal boat trip to explore the area .
There are restaurants and bars located in the walled city and Le Grau du Roi with more extensive nightlife in Grande Motte and Montpellier.
You can walk and cycle safely along the canals and also to the nearest beach at Le Grau du Roi. There are many other spectacular seaside resorts in the area, Ste Marie de la Mer, unspoilt L'Espiguette and Grande Motte.
