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. 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. As with the Mediterranean the weather is excellent with hot sunny days and temperatures ranging from the mid twenties in June and September and thirties upwards in July and August. Languedoc’s invaluable asset is its scenery. The River Tarn’s progress through a wilderness of canyons and gorges is a marvel of nature, and the high Cevennes peaks make thrilling touring. 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. The Languedoc coast: Gaily painted straw huts, wonderful seafood, regional dishes, local wines and endless sunbathing is on the agenda here. With miles of safe, golden beaches where the water is shallow for several metres before dropping deeper is perfect for children. You can see why the Languedoc and the beaches are so popular with families.
