Clercy - Self-catering holiday home in Limoux, Occitanie

Hidden French gems in the Languedoc


Millions of visitors come to France for their summer holiday every year and often visit the most famous and popular tourist areas.

Discover wonderful properties in fabulous but lesser known parts of France in the Languedoc-Roussillon in the South of France, recently renamed to Occitanie.

If you venture off the beaten track, however, you will be rewarded with beautiful surroundings, charming unspoilt villages and uncrowded country roads. You will get more property for your money, some with acres of land for less than you would pay for a small villa in a popular resort.

Here we look at some hidden gems in the Languedoc-Roussillon, or Occitanie region of France...
