The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The regional capital of Languedoc-Roussillon is the city of Montpellier which is a thriving modern city in the Hérault, with its historic centre. Other major cities in the region are Nimes, Narbonne, Sète and Perpignan.

The coast of Languedoc is characterised by long sandy beaches, often with plenty of space and a selection of resorts ranging from modern (Narbonne Plage, Port Leucate) to ancient Catalan fishing ports (Collioure, Banyuls) at the southern edge of the coast.

Those who do not want to sit on a beach may prefer to discover the historic cities, such as Nimes with its superb Roman remains, Roman Arena and nearby Pont du Gard Roman bridge, the famous walled city of Carcassonne, the former Roman provincial capital of Narbonne, and other smaller ancient cities, such as Agde and Aigues Mortes.

Away from the cities you will discover that the Inland Languedoc is a beautiful area, characterised by sunflowers and vineyards (this region is one of France's major wine-growing areas).

The Pyrenees, forming a natural land barrier between France and Spain, are a beautiful range of high mountains. Wooded on their lower slopes, but offering good mountain hill walking and winter skiing higher up - not forgetting the attraction of day trips into Spain and Andorra.

Montreal

Montreal is a small French village situated in the Aude. It has a population of around 2200 people. It has local commerce including supermarkets, bank, bakery, butchers, pharmacy, etc. It is also large enough to have tennis courts, municipal swimming pools, parks, etc.

The capital city of the Aude is Carcassonne, one of the finest fortified cities in Europe. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and attracts visitors from all over the world to marvel at the medieval architecture and quality of renovation. The Aude also has another UNESCO World Heritage Site with the Canal du Midi which meanders through the department, finally reaching Sète on the Mediterranean coast.

The geology of the department is extremely varied with The Black Mountains to the North, The beaches, lagoons and Mediterranean to the East and Pyrenean Mountains to the South. Between these points there are endless vineyards and sunflower fields, dozens of ancient castles, abbeys and medieval villages.

The Aude has a lot to offer during the summer months with regular festivals and concerts. Many villages (including Montreal) host a Bandas, which is a brass band music festival. There are also Folk dancing festivals and various abbey and church festivals throughout the department. The largest of these is the Carcassonne 'Festival de la Cité' which takes place in July and August. This features a variety of world renowned musicians. There is always an impressive firework display at Carcassonne for the July 14th Bastille celebrations.

In 2014 the Tour de France will be passing through Montreal after a rest day in Carcassonne.
