Le Pont du Gard
Le Pont du Gard

Its Cultural and Natural heritage

With eight UNESCO World Heritage of Humanity sites, Occitania South of France is home to almost a quarter of France's listed sites! five of which are just 90 minutes from Languedoc-Camargue: Canal du Midi, Way of St James, Causses & Cévennes, Pont du Gard and the Historic Fortified City of Carcassonne. Staggering and awe-inspiring places sculpted by man and nature are yours for the taking.

Let's not forget the region's natural wealth with the Camargue biosphere reserve, the only place in Europe where flamingoes nest. Then there are the Causses & Cévennes, Gorges du Tarn, Gorges de l’Hérault and iconic Canal du Midi to sail down on a barge.

 

Les plages

Relaxation and water sports on the beach

Over 100 km of sandy coast in a Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sunshine a year. This coastline glitters with jealously guarded treasures: the Cap d'Agde diving areas, the lido near the port town of Sète, the vast untamed Espiguette beaches and the lakes around Mauguio-Carnon.

The region's food and drink is famous for its unique personality: cheese, fresh seafood, signature dishes such as Cassoulet (duck stew), Brandade de Morue (oven-baked salt cod) and Tielle Sétoise (octopus pie). Our "good food" is served with a long-standing wine culture as the destination is among one of the biggest vineyards in the world.

Carnival celebrations get the year off to a bang. Every town and village has its own take on the carnival, just like the one in Pézénas.

As you approach the Mediterranean coast or Canal du Midi, festivals on the water create a splash among locals and visitors with water jousting tournaments in Sète and Palavas and traditional rowing contests.

Countless events are fuelled by the local passion for bulls and horses: Camargue bullfighting, ferias and major local festivals where you dance, eat and drink 'til dawn...
