Languedoc-Roussillon cottage holidays Holiday rentals - cottages & apartments for rent in Languedoc

Languedoc-Roussillon, known as the Languedoc, is the central region of the south of France stretching from the Rhone valley in the east, to the Spanish border in the south west. The regional capital is Montpellier, a thriving modern city in the Hérault with a historic centre, but there are also other facinating historical cities such as Nîmes, Narbonne and Perpignan.

On the coast of Languedoc, you'll find long and spacious sandy beaches with plenty of facilities and entertainment, whilst inland there are countless vineyards that run in to the valleys of the Cevennes and further on to the southern peaks of the Massif Central.

Featured cottages in Languedoc-Roussillon

Self catering holiday rentals, whether coastal cottages or apartments, are very popuar along the Languedoc-Roussillon coast and are certainly great value. The self catering accommodation closest to the beaches and the popular resorts do, however, get booked many months in advance so planning ahead is essential if you want the best locations. Staying on the Pyrenees side, there is a special blend of coastal villages such as Banyuls and Collioure with rocky cliffs backing on to the mountains, and hill side cottages with spectacular views of the bays, perfect for combining beach and mountain holidays.

Our view on Languedoc-Roussillon

We think the Languedoc - Roussillon region of southern France has a fascinating and interesting mix of old cultures, historical cities and contrasting landscapes with the rocky cliffs and tiny coves of the Pyrenees section to the long sandy beaches of the central belt. What makes the region more appealing is that it is less crowded during the peak summer months than other parts of the Mediterranean and you don't seem to experience the sudden jump in prices as soon as the school holidays start. A superb value for money destination for family holidays with short transfers, great food and wine and plenty of sunshine. Renting a holiday cottage gives you the space, freedom and flexibility to do what you want, when you want - home from home.
