Vacation rentals in Languedoc-Roussillon
The Languedoc-Roussillon region has a long coastline along which numerous smaller and larger resorts with innumerable accommodations line up. Most vacation rentals and apartments on the coast can be found in Perpignan, Narbonne, Adge, Seite and in the regional capital Marseille. The residential areas on the mountain sides covered with pine and olive trees are particularly recommendable, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea.A vacation rental in the hinterland
If you would like to spend your holiday exploring the cultural treasures and the beauty of nature, we recommend a vacation rental in the hinterland, far away from the major tourist centres. Picturesque places such as Marseilette near Carcassonne, Les Angles at the foot of the Pyrenees or La Salvetat-sur-Agout in the heart of the Haut Languedoc National Park, with their cosy charm, are therefore ideal starting points for people seeking relaxation who are not primarily interested in a beach holiday.

Travelers and Activities
The number of historically important buildings in Languedoc-Roussillon is sufficient for several holidays in the south of France. The Roman aqueduct bridge Pont du Gard and the town of Nîmes with its amphitheatre, which was also built in Roman antiquity and is still used today for events, are also well worth a visit. Another highlight is the medieval fortress of Carcassonne, which is unique in Europe in terms of its size and state of conservation.Explore the region with children
Crystal clear water, long sandy beaches and beautiful bays make the coast of the region an ideal destination for families with children. But that's not all, Languedoc-Roussillon has a lot to offer with the Dinosaur Park, the Adventure Park near your vacation rental in Vallespir and the vintage train that takes you full steam through the picturesque countryside. Animal lovers can also look forward to a visit to the safari park, the outdoor enclosure of which you can drive through at walking pace.
The region Languedoc-Roussillon is also called "French Florida".

The mild climate makes the region a popular holiday destination for active holidaymakers and cultural tourists from the merry month of May onwards. If, on the other hand, you are planning a beach holiday on the Mediterranean coast, you should book your apartment or apartment for the summer months of July to September, when the Mediterranean has a pleasant bathing temperature. An insider tip for nature lovers is also October, when migratory birds stop in the hinterland.Regular events

Top travel tips
During your stay you can enjoy the full variety of French cuisine. From Roquefort cheese and tasty crabs (écrevisses) to spicy wild rabbits (garennes), the many rustic restaurants serve a variety of culinary delights that are complemented by a fine wine.A boat trip to the lap of the earth
Especially in the coastal region there are countless caves, which have eaten their way from the sea to deep into the coastal rocks. On board one of the small excursion boats you enter the underground vaults and explore the rock caves, sometimes several dozen metres high, which so far only a few people have been able to see from the inside.In the footsteps of Pascal Fabre
Art lovers should also pay a visit to the Musée Fabre in Montpellier, where some 800 exhibits include the treasures of the world-famous painter François-Xavier-Pascal Fabre.
