What to see in Languedoc Roussillon / Occitanie

eLanguedoc-Roussillon, which is part of Occitanie, has long remained unknown to holidaymakers but is now the most accessible region of France with its vast network of airports served by low-cost airlines. Holiday rentals in the Languedoc region have never been so popular. France's largest wine producer, the whole region seems to be an endless postcard landscape interspersed with beautiful vineyards and historic, picturesque villages. The vast Mediterranean coastline offers a calmer and more suitable option than the Côte d'Azur. Carcassonne with its medieval city, the Pont du Gard and the Cathar castles are must-sees in the region. Choose from our premium portfolio of villas, country houses, cottages and farmhouses.

We have more than 84 seasonal rentals in Occitanie. Villas, castles, farmhouses, country houses.
