There is so much to see and do in this lovely part of France;
The beautiful Languedoc has so much to offer such that choices of what to see and do on holiday are extensive and the only problem is how to fit it all in.
From historic cathar castles and roman ampitheatres to the world famous Canal du Midi, from the untamed beauty of the Camargue with its horses and flamingos to the elegant sophistication of cities such as Montpellier. There are beautiful vineyards trails to cycle, gently meandering rivers to canoe as well as stunning landscapes to explore on horseback. And not forgetting, of course, the miles of golden sandy beaches fringing an azur blue sea.
You'll find water practically everywhere in Languedoc Roussillon, so there's no shortage of canal boating, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, fishing and swimming.
Along the coastal roads there are adventure/water parks such as Aqua Land and the Luna Park. The ports of Meze, Marseillan, Cap D'Agde and Sete boast some of the finest restaurants and bars overlooking the Mediterranean.
Towards the mountains and the Regional Park of the Haut Languedoc, there are grottos, lakes, watersports, historic villages. Even for those who prefer the pool or the beaches, this is an area which should be visited.
Three mountain ranges make skiing, rock climbing and walking great options too. Golf and tennis are also well-catered for, with golf courses and tennis centres dotted across the region.
For the slightly more adventurous, there's ballooning (there's nothing like floating over the rivers and vineyards of Languedoc on a summer's day), paragliding and flying (guided flights over the Cathar castles are highly recommended).
For equestrians, there's France's most famous horse trail (Le Sentier Cathar), and for ornithologists, the variety of birds in Languedoc, especially in the mountainous and swamp regions, with everything from vultures to pelicans.
As keen cyclists, we can offer help and advice on cycling routes.
