Languedoc-Roussillon is like something out of a fairy tale, perfectly combining culture and beauty. The Languedoc region stretches right along France’s western shoreline, with traditional cities, quaint villages, ancient castle-studded hilltops and endless golden beaches all waiting to be discovered. If you want a luxury villa holiday off the beaten track, then Languedoc is for you.
We think all luxury villa holidays should make you feel rejuvenated and relaxed, and nothing is more peaceful than a private luxury getaway to Languedoc where you can unwind and switch off from the hustle and bustle of real life.
Languedoc-Roussillon, part of Occitanie, a sun-soak region that stretches from Provence to the Pyrenees, and is best known for its vineyards. Think of it as the French Tuscany. Languedoc-Roussillon produces a huge amount of France’s wine, including the better-known wine varieties such as Vin de Pays d’Oc and sparkling Crémant de Limoux. Imagine this – wine tasting in a stunning vineyard before heading back to your luxury Languedoc villa to drink a cold glass or two by your private pool – bliss!
There are three main areas in Languedoc, which all have their own landscapes, characteristics and appeal. If you are looking for a luxury beach villa to rent, then Bas-Languedoc is where you want to be. This area is home to some beautiful beaches, and of course the picturesque cities of Montpellier and Nimes. For a more Spanish influence, Roussillon is close to Catalonia and is on the Spanish border. The Catalan influence is notable in many of the regional dishes of this area. For real countryside escapism, Haut-Languedoc is rural and hilly and where you will discover Parc National des Cevennes.
Each of our luxury villas in Languedoc-Roussillon are perfectly placed so that you can get the most out of your holiday. Plunge into the warm waters of the Mediterranean, explore the ancient Cathar castles or shop ’til you drop In Montpellier – there is something for everyone in Languedoc. The only thing you need to decide is whether you want to stay in a stunning traditional chateau or a modern contemporary villa, we’ve got it all.
We don’t do ordinary here. We are a small team of experienced travel specialists, no request is too big or too small, so please do ask for our help in finding you the perfect luxury holiday villa in Languedoc for rent.
Best for sundowners
Head to Les Vagues in Grau d’Agde. It’s a stunning seafront restaurant with an ‘Indonesian-esque’ feel. It’s the perfect spot for a drink after a day in the sun.
For a luxurious vibe, Effet Mar in La Grande-Motte is the place to be. Booking ahead is recommended in the summer months as it can get very popular.
Jungle Beach on Plage Richelieu Est, Cap d’Agde is a unique and welcoming beach bar, ready for all of your sundowner requests. There is also a wine cellar with some of the greatest vintages and local wines.
Auberges du Vieux Puit, a 3 Michelin star restaurant run by Gilles Goujon, is at the top of many people’s lists. It is quite hard to find, on a small track outside of the small village of Fontjoncouse, but when you see the red doors of the restaurant you won’t be disappointed.
La Coquerie, in Sète, utilises the region’s finest produce and their fresh fish come from a local auction. As well as exquisite dining, the dining room and terrace have views over the harbour.
Head to La Barbacane, in Carcassonne for fine dining prepared by chef Jérôme Ryon. Part of the Hôtel de la Cité, the interiors boast opulently carved woodwork and stained glass windows, and the food is truly unforgettable.
Best for exploring
Thought to be one of the most beautiful villages in France, Minèrve will transport you back in time. Spend time walking through the streets, try some of the local wine and discover hidden gems and stunning views all around you.
