A large part of central southern France, Languedoc includes much of the wild, dramatic Cevennes national park, seventy miles of fashionable coastline, vast areas dedicated to wine-making, and centres of population steeped in colourful history and good living. We have a varied selection of luxury holiday homes and villas in the Languedoc ranging from stunning modern designer homes to charming country houses. Languedoc's spotless Mediterranean shoreline attracts visitors more interested in quality of life, than in the ostentation of the neighbouring Riviera. Hot dry summers, Greek and Cathar ruins, plentiful fresh oysters, olives and Camargue rice draw cultural and culinary connoisseurs, and even naturists are all part of your villa holiday in Languedoc. Languedoc drew the Romans too; an astonishingly intact amphitheatre and temple at Nimes are unrivalled outside Italy. Everywhere in Languedoc, the marks of determined campaigns and their warriors' faith are alive in the architecture and atmosphere. Seasonal jousting, falconry and celebration bring Carcassonne's incomparable walled city to vibrant life. Wine is central to Languedoc fortunes, often showing greater output than the entire USA. Vacationing among vineyards is blissful indulgence, but wine in Languedoc is the way of life and raison d'etre.
