More on Camping in Languedoc-Roussillon...

Once an independent duchy, the ancient land of Languedoc combines two distinct regions: the vineyards of the Corbières and Minervois and the coastal plain stretching from the Rhône to the Spanish border. Much of the region is rugged and unspoilt, offering opportunities for walking and climbing. There is ample evidence of the dramatic past, with ruins of the former Cathar castles visible throughout the region. The walled city of Carcassonne with its towers, dungeons, moats and drawbridges is one of the most impressive examples of medieval France.

Today, Languedoc and Roussillon are wine and agricultural regions. Languedoc, with considerable success, is now a producer of much of the nation’s better value wines. But above all, the extensive shores and long hours of sunshine make this a paradise for beach enthusiasts. La Grande Motte, Cap d’Agde and Canet, are all being promoted as an alternative to the more famous Mediterranean stretches of the Côte d’Azur.
