“The Languedoc and Roussillon region is one of France’s best-kept secrets. While Provence and the Côte d’Azur just across the Rhône have been living it up, attracting movie stars and the masses, its less pretentious neighbour has remained in comfortable obscurity. And so much the better for those in the know. Dramatically varied landscapes, two distinct, proud cultures – Occitan and Catalan – a tradition of heresy and steadfast rebellion and age-old customs all combine to make this a great region unmatched in its romantic associations, at once epitomizing and defying everything that is France. Now shaking off centuries of sleepy neglect, Languedoc and Roussillon are emerging as one of the most enticing parts of the country, with remote villages and little-travelled byways affording a window onto a vanishing European rural culture, as well as beaches and cities offering a thrilling diversity of activity.”
