We have houses across the region from Sète on the lovely sandy coast west of Montpellier, and inland south west of the ancient city of Carcassonne covering the midi-Pyrénées.
Sète, interlaced with canals, is lively and colourful and great for “bucket and spade” families, with wide sandy beaches and shallow water. It’s busy in summer as the French head south to this area with good reason. However, there are plenty of cycle ways around this quite flat coastline. Dine on fresh mussels, oysters and monkfish stew, cooked seaside where dramatic views drop to turquoise waters. Seafood is best paired with Languedoc’s crisp white wine, Picpoul de Pinet, made with the region’s oldest grapes – the piquepoul. Further inland, the vineyards in Banyuls-sur-Mer produce red and white dessert wines called Banyuls.
The area south of Carcassonne we think is pretty special. With plenty of airports servicing the area, this is one of the best places to organise a large house party, and we have the perfect houses for you to have a fab family reunion or a group of friends having a get together.
