The most beautiful villages in Languedoc-Roussillon

Languedoc-Roussillon is full of beautiful sights. If you are renting a holiday house in Languedoc-Roussillon then you should put the best sights in the Laguedoc-Roussillon on your bucket list. Scroll down and discover the nicest villages in this fantastic region!

Uzès

Near the famous Pont du Gard and the cities of Nimes and Avignon, you will find the beautiful village of Uzès, which was a bishopric until the beginning of the nineteenth century. This majestic status can still be seen today in the many sights to be found there. The Cathedral Saint-Théodorit with its organ from the time of 'Louis Quatorze' and its accompanying Tour Fenestrelle should definitely be on your list. The stately bishop's palace is now a museum that you should definitely visit. The Musée de bonbon is also a must for those who love sweets and history!

Roussillon

In the department of Vaucluse, in the Luberon area, you will find the famous but small village of Roussillon, which has only a thousand inhabitants. It is quite rightly described as one of the most beautiful villages in France. The wealth of ochre ensures that you are surrounded almost everywhere by beautiful yellow-orange shades. In Roussillon, you will enjoy the exceptional nature and the unique views that go with it. If you are renting a villa in the Languedoc-Roussillon, don't miss Roussillon! You can also visit the old ochre quarries or the Eglise Saint-Michel. Let yourself be seduced by the stories of the villagers over a delicious glass of pastis and marvel at the local handicrafts in the friendly shops.

Nîmes

The Romans already knew, in Nîmes there is a lot to do! This special city is home to numerous historical ruins and remains. The 'Maison Carré' is an absolute must-see and the Nîmes Arena catapults you back to the days of bread and games. The Jardins de la Fontaine on Mount Cavalier and the Temple de Diane are also sure to delight. All these magnificent buildings now form the backdrop to the vibrant modern life of Nîmes. On your walk through the city centre, let yourself be charmed by the many nice shops and terraces. Afterwards your holiday home with private pool in the South of France awaits you, to welcome you with open arms!

 

Béziers

Béziers is located in the beautiful Languedoc-Roussillon region, in the deep south of France. In this historically valuable city, you won't know where to look first. So much ancient architectural wealth, so many impressive buildings! The 'jardin de l'Evèque' offers you a truly breathtaking view of the city and the Orb plain that surrounds it. The small streets hide at least as much beauty. Imagine yourself on Père Lachaise in Paris at the beautiful cemetery of Béziers and relax. In the evening, the "Fontaine Musicale" will transport you to a fairytale world. Also visit the world-famous lock complex, which is a feat of 16th century engineering. Believe it, Béziers....c'est un baiser!

Cap d'Agde

You really don't have to be a naturist to have a good time in Cap d'Agde. Renting a holiday home in Cap d'Agde is something you won't regret. This friendly seaside resort near Montpellier and Béziers may be known for its most visited naturist area in the world, but there are plenty of other attractions to fill your days.

Young people in particular will enjoy the adventure park Agde Avonture or the water theme park Aqualand. You should also visit the beautiful Aquarium, the Musée Ephebe and the picturesque little port with its many trendy restaurants and bars.

 

Montpellier

This centuries-old university town is really bubbling with life! One in five of the inhabitants of Montpellier is a student, which keeps the city young and innovative. Visit its numerous gems of churches, palaces, mansions, monasteries and monuments... you will easily spend a few days here! Make sure to visit the Place de la Comédie, the Tour de la Babote, the Chateau Mogere and the Aqueduct of Saint-Clément. But don't worry, even with a good city map and a sturdy pair of walking shoes you can see a lot on a one-day trip. There are no less than 8 museums in Montpellier that are all worth a visit. You guessed it...you will definitely come back here.

Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert

 Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert...how beautiful can a name sound? Well, in this case the name really does honour the village. This monastery village that was founded in the ninth century has an eventful history, especially of a religious nature. You should definitely go here to visit the remains of the old monastery and the cosy narrow streets full of local trinkets. The central square, the Place de Liberté, is pretty much the heart of the village from where you can take lovely walks. 

Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is - quite rightly - called one of the most beautiful villages in France. Definitely worth a diversion, even if you rent a holiday home in Provence!

 

Pézenas

Spoiler alert! You could lose your heart here...

Pézenas is an absolutely amazing place in the Hérault department. The town used to be home to writers and artists of all kinds, including Molière, who was close friends with 'Louis Quatorze'. That artist vibe is still very much present in Pezenas today and creates a lovely relaxed atmosphere. It is so pleasant that you would almost consider living here. The location of Pezenas is also ideal; the beach of Valras is half an hour's drive and larger cities such as Montpellier are also nearby. All the way there!

As you can read there are more than enough nice villages in the Languedoc-Roussillon. Rent a holiday home in Languedoc-Roussillon for 6 persons or more and discover this beautiful region!
