The Midi-Pyrenees / Aveyron region
The south of France and Languedoc is swamped with beautiful and dramatic landscapes, medieval towns, Cather castles and of course beaches. There are great stretches of spectacular landscapes and river gorges.
The south of France and Languedoc has superb ecclesiastical architecture, great medieval towns like Cordes and Carcassonne, and surprisingly unpopulated beaches away from the major resorts.
The heartland of the region is the Bas Languedoc, the dry, coastal plain, stony, vine growing hills between Nimes and Carcassonne. The area has seen massive tourist development, especially on the coast, and a drastic transformation of the Languedoc’s cheap wine industry.
The Eastern Languedoc is dominated by 2 major cities, Montpellier and Nimes. Nimes is a busy modern town impressive for its denim textile industry and boasts some of the most extensive Roman remains in Europe.
Nimes also has a great tradition of bullfighting. The wildest and best know bullfight is the Feria de Pentecote, which is a 5 day festival over the Whitsun weekend. Millions crowd into Nimes to watch amateur and the worlds best matadors compete. Montpellier too has a fine history.
Thousands of years of intellectual activity and trade have Montpellier a heaving, full of life city. Benjamin of Tudela, the 12th century Jewish traveller, documented that the city’s streets were buzzing with traders from every corner of Greece, Egypt, Spain, Gaul, Pisa and Genoa. Today this University City is vying with Toulouse for the title of the most dynamic city in the south of France and Languedoc. It is worth noting too that the beaches around Montpellier are largely untouched.
The beautiful historic city Toulouse is the cultural capital of the Languedoc. With its charming, historic and cosmopolitan centre Toulouse is one of France’s most vibrant and metropolitan cities. Toulouse is a university city second only to Paris; it is a world renowned aviation centre and has a claim to be the European capital of poetry!
The southern part of Languedoc boasts a stirring and varied landscape. From the coastal flats to the rocky hills the region has a rugged and rich backdrop. The fortress town of Carcassonne is perhaps the most notable, historic and beautiful in the southern Languedoc.
The nearby crumbling Cathar castles of the Aude hark back to the Languedoc’s era of independence, and the wars against the Cathars in the 12th century.
The south of France and Languedoc has such a diverse landscape, you have stylish and chic yacht ports, rolling valleys, rivers, a great and very evident Medieval history, Mediterranean beaches, immense cities and the weather to match. Some of France’s best chateaux are found in the south of France and Languedoc region, and it’s a wonderful place to enjoy a holiday chateau in France.
The St. Affrique area
Locally there is much to enjoy, Sylvanès Abbey, the Roquefort Caves (yes, it's where they cure the famous cheese) the Fayet castle, the famous Temlpar's Knights trail etc. Whatever you decide, you will be seduced by the warm welcome and the majestic surroundings.
For more than 800 years ago, the Castle dominated the Sorques Valley. Between Saint-Affrique and the Larzac plateau, the Valley of the Sorgues has the subdued charm of hidden treasures. It is not as renowned as other aveyronnese valleys, and yet its singular beauty has in all seasons attracted noblemen and notables of Montpellier in search of authentic holiday spots. The villages bordering the Sorgues are as warm as they are beautiful. The silhouette of the chateau, in the heart of the forest, can be seen by merely looking upwards from Versols
