Languedoc-Roussillon offers 150 miles of beaches and a stunning
hinterland rising up to the Massif Central and the Pyrenees.
The major towns of Montpellier, Perpignan, Nimes and Carcassonne all
have their own, unique character. But get out of the urban centres and you'll really
appreciate what Languedoc-Roussillon has to offer the tourist.
The wine-growing areas are gaining in popularity and there's plenty of
historical attractions throughout the region with prehistoric caves, abbeys and Romain
remains. Not to mention the Cathar castles.
