HOLIDAYS IN LANGUEDOC

GLORIOUSLY LAID-BACK LANGUEDOC

Camping in Languedoc with us sees you at the coastal foot of Beziers, just along from the port city of Montpellier. While our Roussillon parks are perched on the beaches of Perpignan, here you can also explore rural France at its finest.

Varying landscapes means you can choose to walk through the rustic interior or take family strolls on the beaches, before touring around the many historic chateaux, castles and landmarks where centuries of settlements have left their mark.

Roman sights such as the scenic aqueduct at Pont du Gard chime well with the battlements found at Carcassonne and the medieval leanings of Aigues-Mortes.

Last, but by no means least, is Languedoc's renowned wineries and vineyards, which can be booked for memorable wine tours and tastings as you explore the finer side of life.
