The regional prefecture of
Languedoc-Rousillon is Montpellier.
Neighbouring regions are Auvergne,
Midi-Pyr�n�es, Provence-Alpes-C�te d'Azur and Rh�ne-Alpes.
Influenced by the Mediterranean, Languedoc-Roussillon is one of
the sunniest regions of France.
Languedoc-Roussillon offers 150 miles of beaches and a stunning
hinterland rising up to the Massif Central and the Pyren�es.
The major towns of Montpellier, Perpignan, N�mes and Carcassonne all
have their own, unique character. But get out of the urban centres and you'll really
appreciate what Languedoc-Roussillon has to offer the tourist.
The wine-growing areas are gaining in popularity and there's plenty of
historical attractions throughout the region with prehistoric caves, abbeys and Romain
remains. Not to mention the Cathar castles.

Languedoc-Roussillon tend to be larger and sandier than Provence's pebbly equivalents and
some stretch for miles along a coastline that is predominantly flat and straight.
