DISCOVER THE UNSPOILT REGION OF LANGUEDOC

The beautiful region of Languedoc is often referred to as the ‘real south of France’, with an expansive landscape dominated by vineyards, traditional villages filled with charm, rocky outcrops crowned by castles, and a rich and varied coastline that stretches from the Camargue to the Pyrenees mountains. During our break you can relax and enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle with plenty of free time in our resort of Cap d’Agde, and visit some beautiful places including Carcassonne, a fortified medieval city with a fairytale collection of towers and drawbridges, and the graceful city of Avignon, once the seat of papal powers. This is traditional France with a hint of history at its very best.

DAY 1: LONDON – CAP D’AGDE

We journey from London to Paris via Eurostar and join the TGV to Agde in southern France, our base for the next seven nights.

DAY 2: CAP D’AGDE

Today is free to spend at leisure in our Mediterranean resort. Located at the foot of an ancient volcano, Cap d’Agde is based around a large marina where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. Activities are abundant, from glass-bottomed boat trips to snorkelling, or you can simply relax and unwind on one of the large sandy beaches.

DAY 3: CARCASSONNE

We depart by coach and travel to the city of Carcassonne, designated a world heritage site. The old city is in fact a castle perched on a hilltop, flawlessly preserved with a moat, drawbridge and magnificent spires, making you feel like you have stepped back to medieval times. Walk the circumference of the walls for splendid views of the surrounding countryside and the modern city spread out below.

DAY 4: CAP D’AGDE

We enjoy another free day in resort. The small town of Agde itself is worth visiting, with impressive architecture including the Cathédrale St-Étienne. If you would like to venture further afield, the port of Setè is an interesting place. A highlight is a walk up to Mont St Clair, where you can enjoy magnificent views along with some of the best seafood in the world.

DAY 5: CAP D’AGDE

A further day is spent at leisure, giving you the freedom to do as much or as little as you wish.

DAY 6: PONT DU GARD – AVIGNON

Our included excursion today takes us to Pont du Gard, the 2,000-year-old Roman aqueduct. Standing at nearly 50 metres, it was the highest bridge the Romans ever built. From here our route takes us to Avignon, city of the popes. On entering the walls of the city you will find ancient streets and courtyards lined with magnificent buildings. For a more secluded spot head to the Rocher des Doms, a beautiful hilltop park with wonderful views.

DAY 7: CAP D’AGDE

Enjoy a final day at leisure.

DAY 8: CAP D’AGDE – LONDON

We are transferred to the station and take the train to Paris, where we join Eurostar for our return to London.
