Holiday lettings in Languedoc-Roussillon

Dashed with dancing sunflowers and green vineyards, washed with sky-blue Mediterranean waves and peppered with castles, Roman ruins and intriguing towns, Languedoc-Roussillon is one truly enchanting corner of France. In a place that runs from the snow-topped Pyrenees to the wild woods of the Cevennes, you can find all sorts of alluring stays. That could mean a timber-built chalet on the ski pistes or a rustic cottage close to Carcassonne, a hip student pad in Montpellier or a luxurious villa between the flower fields of bucolic Aude – the choice is yours.

History

The ancient past of Languedoc-Roussillon

The story of Languedoc-Roussillon goes back millennia. The Greeks and the Romans settled here in ancient times, before the Visigoths and Vandals. Some raised wondrous feats in their wake, like the great Roman Pont du Gard, still seen crossing the Gardon River. Others left more ethereal traces of their presence, in the mellifluous sounds of the native Occitan language or the medieval traditions of troubadour music. Meanwhile, cities like Carcassonne – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and Nimes – a town centered on a huge colosseum – are real musts for any history buffs heading this way.

The great French outdoors in Languedoc-Roussillon

Whoever said you need to hit the Alps to find French mountains? Any Languedoc-Roussillon holiday rental in the rising peaks of the Pyrenees will prove that wrong. It's a region of wooded ridges and deep valleys where you can don the skis or pull on the hiking boots. Don't forget the coast, either. Yacht sails billow in the wind, there, to take sailors out to hidden beaches and lonely lagoons. Meanwhile, the rolling farms of the Aude department are a haven for cyclists. Just a day's ride, there, can reveal vineyards and castle-crowned cities from centuries gone by.

How to get around

Navigating Languedoc-Roussillon

Planning to rent a car to take you to that Languedoc-Roussillon villa rental? That's a great idea. Get ready to hit sunflower-fringed roads, winding mountain lanes and gorgeous countryside – it's an absolute pleasure driving in this corner of France. You can pick up a set of wheels at most of the major airports in the region, including Beziers and Perpignan. If you'd prefer to avoid driving, then you can usually hop back and forth from holiday rentals in cities like Montpellier and Nimes using local bus and train routes. They're reliable and comfortable, and even include high-speed French TGV lines.

Food & drink

Taste the delicacies of Languedoc-Roussillon

From Provence to the peaks of the Catalan mountains, Languedoc-Roussillon holiday cottages are never too far from a taste of authentic French cuisine. In fact, some of the country's most quintessential dishes hail from this region. Escargot – that's snails – cooked in wild herbs and garlic on a griddle, are common menu fodder. The fruits of the Mediterranean Sea are often the dish of the day in the coastal towns, whether oysters or oil-doused red mullet. Inland are rustic hamlets where chestnuts and salty Roquefort cheese beckon. And then there's the wine – you could even come to join the grape harvest festivals in Cessenon-sur-Orb and Gruissan, both in October.
