What to see & do

The Languedoc-Roussillon region in France is known for its wine, covering an area of 740,300 acres or 2,996 square kilometres of vineyards. Languedoc-Roussillon is an important winemaking centre for many centuries, with grapevines said to have existed in the south of France even before the existence of Homo sapiens. The Mediterranean climate in Languedoc-Roussillon as well as the variety of soil types, from rocky sand to think clay, made it possible for wine production. The region is known to be the largest contributor to the European Union’s surplus of wine, known as the wine lake. Visit the first vineyards of Gaul in the towns of Beziers and Narbonne, learn about the region’s wine tradition and history, and don’t forget to have a taste!

The charming Languedoc-Roussillon is home to many villages and towns with each having its own unique character and appeal. Cevennes feature scenic wooded mountains, and this is also the home of the reintroduced griffon vulture. The Cirque de Navacelles is also an interesting discovery where the road descends to a tiny village; as well as Le Sidobre, which forms the westernmost boundary of the Parc Naturel Regional du Haut Languedoc. The area also features wooded deep river valleys and huge boulders of granite that were carved into fascinating shapes. Go hiking at the Monts d’Espinouse, which has few paths around the D14 from Olargues to Fraisse-sur-Agout as well as a small side road where tourists can access the small village of Douch that leads to the summit of Mont Caroux where a southern vista awaits. During the summer, climbing the Pic Carlit is a popular activity, where the peak offers great views and an opportunity to see ibex and chamois. Tourists can also explore the village of Alaigne to learn more about the Cathar country. On Languedoc-Roussillon’s Mediterranean coastline, windsurfing is an attraction, particularly in Gruissan where there is both sea and lake windsurfing opportunities.
