Traditional gites in Languedoc

The Languedoc-Roussillon
region, capital Montpellier, stretches from the Rhone to the Spanish border, and is one of the most popular tourist regions in France. Most of the population of Languedoc is concentrated on the flat coastal plain and the low hill country behind it. With the exception of the Aude corridor, the whole region is bordered inland by medium to high mountains, including the Pyrenees, the Montagne Noire and the Cévennes.
   The coastal strip is famed as the most productive wine-growing area in France; the hills inland begin as arid Mediterranean hinterland and rise to well watered uplands, notably the department of the Lozère (for gites in the Lozère, see Southern Massif Central).
    There are plenty of gites in the Languedoc region, including many gites ith English-speaking owners. As a coastal Mediterranean region, the Languedoc has seen a large influx of emigrants from northern Europe, including Britons, Dutch and Germans who have bought up cottages in this region and opened up gites, notably in villages on the Languedoc plain, in the foothills of the eastern Pyrenees,  and in the rolling hills of the Aude between the coast and Carcassonne.
