Exceptional villas curated by our experts
Revel in the traditionally French atmosphere of this region from the seclusion of your sprawling villa. Choose from views of the towering snow-capped Pyrénées to rolling hills carpeted in vines or the turrets of the fairytale fortresses that dot the Languedoc.
Hire a classic car and explore the picturesque rural roads and villages, mountains tumbling into rivers and dramatic gorges, crossed by the great arches of magnificent stonework bridges. Driving through the region, you’ll pass historical reminders of a long-contested history, from Roman aqueducts to imposing Cathar castles and fortresses that scatter the hilltops. Further south, the tranquil tree-lined avenue of the Canal du Midi weaves its way through the countryside to the southwestern Mediterranean coast, with its swathes of sandy beaches.
For a taste of city-chic, the region's towns cater to many palettes. Explore the elegant boulevards of Montpellier, stroll the elegant ancient walled city of Carcassonne, marvel at Roman remains in Nimes or head to Perpignan in the south for its Catalan flavours. World-renowned for its winemaking, the vineyards of the Languedoc are some of the most superior in France. Have your personal chef prepare a gourmet tasting menu, paired with some of the region's finest grapes - feasting on succulent wild boar, decadent truffles and locally produced cheeses as the sun slips below the horizon.
