Argelès-Plage, south of Perpignan offers a broad, six-mile length of sandy shoreline, with all kinds of watersports, from diving to kayaking. A more secluded option would be L’Espiguette, east of Montpellier, which features a long sandy beach, separated from the mainland by lagoons.

-History. If you have an interest in history then there’s an incredible variety of landmarks to track down here. In the Gard department there’s Nimes, with its remarkable Roman heritage and nearby Pont du Gard, an aqueduct and feat of Roman engineering. Carcassonne is a UNESCO-listed walled medieval city with more than 50 towers and three kilometres of fortifications.

-Natural scenery. Lozère, towards the north of the region is famed for its rugged, pine covered landscapes and is dotted with picturesque villages. Here you can find the Gorges du Tarn, the deepest gorges on the continent. To the south are the eastern Pyrenees, home to the spectacular Mont Canigou, which is a famous landmark dominating the area.

-Food and drink. Much of the countryside across Languedoc-Roussillon is given over to wine production. It was at Beziers and Narbonne that Roman Gaul’s first vineyards were established. The most famous wines, such as Cornieres, are produced in the Herault and Aude departments.

-Outdoor recreation. North of Montpellier is the Cevennes National Park, home to wonderful upland scenery and best discovered on foot via a range of trails, including the mammoth Tour of the Cevennes, which extends for well over 100 kilometres. At coastal resorts there are also all kinds of opportunities for watersports like water-skiing and wind-surfing.
