The lesser-known region of Haut-Languedoc is a far cry from the busy coastal resorts. This region is all about nature and wildlife with its rolling mountains, beautiful scenery, lake beaches, mountain rivers and the most picturesque villages. Whether you are looking for a genuine relaxing holiday in nature or just a day out from the coastal buzz, this region is only about an hour away from the main Languedoc beaches. Relax at the numerous refreshing mountain rivers or lakes, enjoy stunning views from the hilltop restaurants or absorb the history of medieval villages. For a more active day go for a trek through this beautiful area, sail or windsurf on a mountain lake or try out kayaking or white-water rafting on one of many rivers.
