Languedoc-Roussillon is a Mediterranean region of France, with an infinite variety of landscapes, bathed in sunshine 300 days a year. Ideal for exploring around twenty courses with very different characters.

Reinforced by its dual identity, Provencal and Catalan, Languedoc-Roussillon, or Septimanie to use the name it bore from Roman times to the beginning of the Middle Ages, has a thousand faces. Scented garrigue, preserved coastal plains, lakes and wild marshland, mountains and craggy plateaux . all these landscapes can be found in the Eastern Pyrenees, Aude, Hérault, Gard and Lozère. And this variety can also be seen in the local heritage, culture, and traditions.

For lovers of « old stones », history tells its story through some real wonders, from the Pont du Gard to the Walled City of Carcassonne via the pilgrim roads to Santiago de Compostela with the Abbaye de Saint Guilhem le Désert and the abbey church of Saint Gilles. Tourist outings are livened up with the taste of festivals and traditional games, involving horses and bulls around the Carmargue, and the Languedoc tournaments at Sète and Mèze
