Departments of the south of France
Dividing the south of France into coherent tourist areas is not an easy task, since the official regions do not always match either the boundaries of historic provinces nor areas that logically go together. For instance, while most of the Languedoc region is made up of Mediterranean coastal plain and its direct hinterland, the Lozère department (48) is a high mountain plateau much of it over 1000 metres, and very different from the rest of the region.
   Gitelink has chosen to divide the south of France into areas that are more logically coherent units in terms of climate and landscape.
  The darkened areas on the map are the true "Midi", the Mediterranean and Pyrenean departments of France, and the Provence Alps. The departments lying to the west - Landes (40) and Tarn et Garonne (47) and northwest - Dordogne (24) - are more commonly considered to be "southwest France"; those lying in the centre of the paled area of the map are the hill and mountain departments forming the southern Fringe of the Massif Central - the Lot (46) and Aveyron (12) in the west, the Lozère (48) and Ardèche (07) in the east.
   Most of the map above is clickable.
