Languedoc, an inspirational and exciting region and a property hotspot
Languedoc-Roussillon is a region of marvels, full of natural and historical sites ranging from medieval castles, caves, dolmens, Romanesque churches and abbeys such as Fontfroide or Valmagne. It boasts five sites classified by UNESCO as World Heritage – such as Carcassonne, known throughout the world for its medieval fortified town, or the Canal du Midi, the canal that runs from the city of Toulouse down to the Mediterranean port of Sète. The region also boasts 13 villages featuring amongst the list of “Plus beaux villages de France” such as Saint Guilhem le Désert (a Roman village on the way to Santiago de Compostela), Minerve or Olargues.
An exceptional climate, vast protected natural spaces including the “Parc Naturel Régional du Haut-Languedoc”, the attractions of Sète and Montpellier to the east and the excellent regional infrastructure guarantee an outstanding quality of life
The Etang de Thau is the most spectacular basin of Languedoc, sparkling in summer and peaceful in winter. Opening out into the sea, the Thau basin's eastern shore forms an 11 km-long beach, with the Mediterranean on one side and the tranquil waters of the basin on the other side. The western shore is a hive of traditional activities such as fishing, shellfish farming and wine-growing.
The Etang de Thau and its surroundings’ ecosystems are bathed in the sea air and decorated by vineyards and delightful small ports like Mèze, Bouzigues or Marseillan.
On the side towards the sea, you may see flamingos, herring gulls and cormorants while on the other side you may spot egrets, warblers and much more.
This is a secret Mediterranean spot which breathes the sun and pleasures of the South of France and it is heaven for those who enjoy water sports such as sailing or kite surfing.
Marseillan, a charming port is one of Languedoc’s gems, once named “what St Tropez most probably looked like before Brigitte Bardot went there” by The Guardian. Marseillan is an ancient Phocaean town that charms visitors with its authenticity. The port of Marseillan is a Mediterranean hot spot for water sports, for those sailing on the Canal du Midi and is notably home to a sailing school (Ecole des Glénans).
