Cheap flights to Languedoc-Roussillon

Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the 27 regions comprising mainland France. The area is divided into five prefectures namely Carcassonne, Nimes, Montpellier, Mende, and Perpignan, and is the southernmost region of the country. It is bordered to the south by Spain, the Andorra and the Mediterranean Sea on the other side, as well as the French regions of Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur, Rhone-Alpes, Auvergene, and Midi-Pyrenees. The region is known for its vast lands dedicated to wine production, constituting to almost 750,000 acres of land. This is triple the size of the wineries and vineyards found in Bordeaux, another wine-producing region in the country.

 

What to see & do

Bas-Languedoc – The broad and flat plains of Bas-Languedoc boast all of the Languedoc's main towns and its best beaches, as well as the richest Roman remains and finest wines. The province is the home of Montpellier, the capital of the region, as well as of Nimes and Carcassonne, three of the main cities in Languedoc-Roussillon. It is also the site of the “Little Venice of Languedoc,” which is Sete, as well as Uzes and its rich Renaissance architecture.

Haut-Languedoc – Haut-Languedoc is far-fetched from its counterpart, Bas-Languedoc, when it comes to physical qualities. No, it is a world away from the towns, vineyards, and beaches of the coastal plain, and is much more sparsely populated – filled with craggy gorges, windswept plateaus, and a dense forest – perfect for those who love to wander around and out in the open air. Visit the Parc National des Cevennes and Parc Naturel Regional des Grands Causses and spend a day or two with sweet towns such as Florac, Millau, and Gorges du

Tarn.

Roussillon – although French by birth and by nationality, the region of Roussillon mirrors Spanish culture too much that you would think you're in Madrid or Barcelona. Sometimes known as French Catalonia, it is almost two provinces rolled in to one: the Mediterranean half sprawls along the coast with its busy beach towns and villages which is inviting albeit its scorching temperatures, while the inland half is filled with abandoned abbeys and crumbling Cathar strongholds. Visit the lone city of Perpignan from here too – the gateway and the capital of the Pyrenees-Orientales department, which will also serve as your exploration launchpad.
