Languedoc Roussillon

Found in the central region of the South of France, this area benefits from the warm Mediterranean weather, but with a quieter coastline than neighbouring Provence. A largely unspoilt area, it feels very traditionally French and enjoys a slower pace of life.

The towns and villages of Languedoc-Roussillon are some of the most beautiful in France with historical buildings and fortified ancient battlements going back over a thousand years. It has also been a major centre of rugby league since the sport was introduced to France in the 1930s.
