Here’s our top 5 trips and tips for how to spend your time in Languedoc-Roussillon.
# 1 Head back in time in Carcassonne
Imagine yourself in the days of knights and princesses and visit the fortified city of Carcassonne.Walking through the gates you find yourself in the beautiful medieval city. A visit to the castle is a must and from here you can get some of the best views of the city.
Tip: Take the time for a visit to Carcassone city. Whenever you go, it is always busy here (after all, it is a great outing) and we would advise that a pram is not ideal in this city unfortunately.
# 2 On a mini-city trip in Montpellier
Montpellier is incredibly fun! The city is quite compact and therefore easy to discover on foot. Stroll through the narrow streets, take in the beautiful aromas of the local bakeries and enjoy the street musicians on Place de la Comédie.
Tip: Beside the large central square Place de la Comédie is a fantastic park, Esplanade de Charles de Gaulle. It is a great location for a picnic and the kids will absolutely love it there.
# 3 The charming Béziers
Not too big, but extremely beautiful. The town of Béziers has an impressive cathedral with a beautiful view. The local food market ‘Les Halles’ is also worth a visit where you can buy all kinds of fresh products and a delicious fresh lunch.
Tip: Purchase some goodies from the market as well, for enjoying on the porch of your mobile home that evening!
# 4 Wandering through the streets of Collioure
Collioure is a lovely coastal town that you have to see during your holiday. The center of the town is the striking castle. From here you can get fantastic photos of Collioure. It’s easy to see why so many artists have used this place as a source of inspiration for their arts.
Tip: Plan your visit to Collioure in advance and reserve a boat trip from the harbour. Enjoy a glass of wine on the water!
# 5 Splashing around in Aqualand
If your children love aquaparks then they’ll love Aqualand in Saint-Cyprien! It’s also a fun place for adults to act like big kids again and race down thrilling slides, dive into different pools and relax in the sun or under a parasol.
Tip: Depart for Aqualand soon after breakfast as you will get to enjoy the full day there!
