The Languedoc-Roussillon encompasses towns in the Pyrenees and on the Spanish border and stretches across to the lively coastal resorts on the Mediterranean.
The Northern part of Languedoc is home to the historical towns of Nimes and Uzes, along with the coastal resorts of Sète and Cap d'Agde. The South and its exciting landscape and scenery includes the well-known fortress town of Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi and the lively towns of Narbonne and Pepignan.
Historic Carcassone is a beautifully restored medieval city and Europe's largest fortified citadel. One of the most interesting things to see there is the walled part of the town as you surround yourself with history strolling through the cobbled streets.
Down into the south of the Languedoc is the Catalan region with Perpignan and the seaside towns of Argéles-sur-mer and St Cyprien. Also worthy of a day trip during your holiday is the 17th century fishing town of Collioure, just on the border with Spain.
