The Languedoc-Roussillon region
With an average of 310 sunny days a year the area is ideal for year round holidays.
Spring comes early with almond blossom and wild flowers in profusion. Summers are long and sunny heralded by the song of the cigale. The sleepy atmosphere of the country villages contrasting sharply with the lively bustle of the coastal resorts. The season of colour, oleanders, roses, geraniums, the market stalls piled high with peaches, apricots and melons. Late summer brings the grape harvest and almonds and figs are ready for picking.
Autumn with its gentle sun brings a wonderful change of colour to the vineyards. The green leaves turning to vibrant shades of red, orange and gold making a "patchwork quilt" of the landscape. Winters are short and mild with deep blue skies, spectacular sunsets, flowering mimosas and olives ripening on the trees.
Things to see: Canal du Midi, the hill fort of Ensérune, the famous walled town of Carcassonne, the strange rock formations of Mourèze, the vast lake of Salagou, the village and ancient monastery of St Guilhem Le Désert, the enchanting grotto of Clamouse and nearby Devil's Bridge, the impressive gorges d'Heric, the breathtaking panorama of the Cirque de Navacelles. Just a few examples of this varied region.
