What’s to love about the Languedoc? Great history, weather, food & wine for starters!; Just Go Places Blog

France – Pont du Gard (Roman Aqueduct)

The Languedoc Roussillon region of France has a long and illustrious history dating back to Roman times. There’s plenty of thngs to do in the Languedoc, whether it is exploring Roman archeological ruins, the medieval fortified city of Carcassone, Europe’s largest river delta at the Camargue or the charming towns lining the 200+ miles of coastline edging the Meditteranean Sea.

Although ever-popular Provence gets all the attention, the neighbouring French region of Languedoc-Roussillon is where the smart money goes to avoid the crowds but still get the French countryside charm. We first discovered the Languedoc accidentally when my husband won a charity auction for a luxury stay at Maison Laurent near Carcassone. We loved it so much we have returned several times including with the kids. We weren’t surprised when Lonely Planet named it among the top 10 regions to visit in the world for 2018, along with Alaska in the USA, the Julian Alps in Slovenia and Bahia in Brasil.
