Discover Montpellier and Languedoc region with South France gites

Languedoc is a splendid holiday region that extends from the Mediterranean coast between Camargue, Nimes, Montpellier, Sete and Narbonne, heading inland towards Carcassonne and the Parc Regional de Haut Languedoc in the north.

The "Pont du Gard" built by the Romans and listed by UNESCO (Remoulins) makes for an excellent day out if you’re staying in Languedoc. It's an attractive visitor centre with shops, restaurants and an interactive children’s centre.
You are not very far of the Haribo sweet museum in Uzes.

You can also spend a day in Carcassonne to see the famous "Cite de Carcassonne" (It is a fortified town) and in Camargue to see Aigues Mortes (a walk around the ramparts) and the "Saintes Maries de la Mer".

Languedoc had a rich and diverse history with the chain of castles from the Cathar period (the highlight is the Château de Peyrepertuse) as well as a number of historic villages in the "Les Plus Beaux Villages de France" chain (recommended are Saint Guilhem le Désert, Minerve and Olargues)

Further to the north of montpellier is the Parc Regional de Haut Languedoc whilst the whole area around Saint André de Sangonis, Gignac and Clermont l’Hérault is very attractive - highlights are the Cirque de Mourèze for it’s fascinating rock formations and the Lac de Salagou which offers water sports and lake side swimming. 

Have a look to the Herault canyon, the "Pont du Diable" and the beautiful caves (Grotte de Clamouse, Grotte des Demoiselles, Grotte de Labeil)

So southern France has plenty of attractions on offer !
