Ask most French where they would like to live and they will answer the Herault Region of the Languedoc Roussillon. There is also a growing interest from foreigners in Languedoc Roussillon as more and more people discover how much it has to offer.
Languedoc Roussillon stretches from the edge of Provence to the border of Spain and is situated on the Mediterranean coast. It is less well known or developed than it’s neighbour Provence and because of this retains so much charm. It has some the best sandy beaches of the South of France. It’s mountains include the Haut Languedoc and Pyrenees which form a dramatic backdrop. The area is also the largest wine producer in the world and much of the countryside is covered in vines. Languedoc Roussillon is also a popular holiday destination with the French and foreign visitors.
An overview of Languedoc Roussillon:
This Region is one of the 27 Regions of France and consists of 5 Departments…

Property: There’s something for everyone, from modern seaside apartments and villas to charming old village houses and rambling country estates, depending on your taste!
The pace of life is slow, time for everything, no need to rush. The cuisine is famous and only the freshest ingredients are used and the choice of great wines is simply amazing. It’s easy to see why so many are tempted to move to this wonderful part of the South of France.
