The artists’ favorite of Collioure


Languedoc sightseeing is rich and varied, rather like its landscape. The region is made up of tens of kilometres of gentle coastline with a rugged hinterland.

The clean sandy beaches are perfect for family holidays, with resorts ranging from traditional fishing villages to new purpose-built resorts.

Inland is quieter, with the vineyards in the Corbières and Minervois stretching into the distance and beautiful mountain walks in the Haut Languedoc.

A rich architectural heritage ranges from Roman to Romanesque, contrasting with the modern, vibrant atmosphere of the main cities. This varied canvas means that if Languedoc sightseeing is what you’re looking for, you will not be disappointed.

We’ve made some suggestions for sightseeing trips in the following sections:
