If you’re deciding on which region to enjoy a stay in our
luxury villas, Languedoc, in the South of France, may be an excellent choice,
as it is a vast region packed with a variety of fun activities which can be
enjoyed by all the family. Many of the great days out can be enjoyed for free,
while others make for memories you and your family will never forget.

Canoeing by the Pont du Diable

Crossing the Herault River, the Pont du Diable is one of the
river’s main landmarks, and with it comes a fantastic day out. By the bridge
itself, there is a small lake, where you can see fish swimming in the water,
complete with a beach, as well as a visitor centre. Here you can rent the
canoes for around €10 an hour, and travel either across the lake or up the
river, which makes for the best adventure. The water here is extremely calm,
making it great for all abilities, though it can be a little windy in places.

Meet the animals at Montpellier Zoo

Also known as the Parc Zoologique Henri de Lunaret, this zoo
is set in parklands in the north of Montpellier, and is completely free to
visit. There are plenty of animals here, meaning your trip will keep the family
entertained for hours. Among the animals you can meet are bears, lions,
leopards, rhinos, cheetahs and antelope, and an exciting new Amazon rainforest
section has also recently been built.

Splash about at Aqualand

Located in Cap d’Agde, the Aqualand water park is perfect
for those scorching days out where you still have a thirst for an adrenaline
rush. While there aren’t many rides for children under 110cm in height, the
rides and slides are great for older children and the adults who want to
unleash the big kid in them. Among the most exciting slides here are the
Niagara, a straight slide where you travel 50m in two seconds, the Black Hole,
a massive darkened flume, and the Colorado, where you descend in the dark while
aboard a rubber dinghy.

Swing like monkeys at Accrobranche

For a slightly different active day out, Accrobranche is
great fun and is bound to leave your kids completely exhausted by the end of
the day. Set in a dense forest between Abbaye Valmagne and Montagnac, here you
can swing like monkeys and traverse between the trees in activities including
rope ladders, tree canopy walks and abseiling.

Explore the region by Velorail

Close to the old Knights Templar village of
Saint-Eulalie-de-Cernon is the Velorail centre; from here you can begin an
amazing adventure along a disused railway line, riding in old railway bogey
cars which have been converted into one-of-a-kind cycling units. The route
takes you along an 8km track which is mostly downhill, offering spectacular
views as you pass through railway tunnels, over bridges and through the steep
valley, before you enjoy a charming ride back to the station on an old steam
