Languedoc-Roussillon Sud de France by train

Overview

The region of Languedoc-Roussillon Sud de France is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea and the north of Spain. Diverse natural, historic, cultural and gastronomic assets are the hallmark that gives Languedoc-Roussillon its very special character. Holidays in this region are a rich experience: a preserved coastline, omnipresent heritage, friendly towns, magnificent back country, countless activities and cuisine from the south of France are all invitations to happiness and sharing. True luxury is actually being there!

With a minimum of 300 days of sunshine during the year and so many places to discover, this southern region of France is the ideal vacation place. Travelling through its departments - Pyrénées-Orientales, Lozère, Aude, Gard and Hérault - you will witness the close links between nature and humans.

Besides 220 km of fine sandy beaches, Languedoc-Roussillon is the only region in France to boast six splendid sites listed as World Heritage by UNESCO (the city of Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi, the Vauban fortresses, the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage routes, the Pont du Gard and the Mediterranean agro-pastoral landscapes of Causses and Cévennes).

Day 1

Nîmes

25 minutes away from Montpellier, Nîmes is home to Roman masterpieces including the best preserved amphitheatre from the Roman era, the Magne Tower and the Maison Carrée, a temple that dominated the forum of the ancient city. It is the only fully-preserved temple of the ancient world. Its harmonious proportions, elegant columns and the finesse of its architecture are simply a delight. Enjoy the rest of the day in the city centre while enjoying the relaxing and peaceful Mediterranean atmosphere.

Day 2

Nîmes > Sète

On the second day, take the TER to Sète (45 min trip), a port town cleaved by canals, wedged between the Thau lagoon and the Mediterranean Sea. Prepare yourself for a 1-hour walk to the top of Mont Saint-Clair to admire the town from above. Besides the exceptional views, discover the cross of St Clair and the Chapel of Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette. Afterwards, head back to the covered market in the town centre to discover its local ambiance. Have a break by sipping a Picpoul wine accompanied by a few oysters. Continue your culinary delight at L’Entonnoir, a fabulous restaurant whose dishes are timed to meet the day’s catch.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
