 Views of the Region for Guests of "Le Pavillon"

Languedoc-Roussillon only came under French royal control after a bloody struggle to subdue the region in the thirteenth century. But even now it retains it's own distinct identity and is as much influenced by its proximity to Spain as it is by the dictates of Paris.

Nestling at the foot of the Pyrenees the region sweeps in a grand curve around the Mediterranean and extends inland as far as Toulouse and the Gavronne. The sunniest area in France, the region is blessed with approximately 300 days of sunshine per year and is renowned for its natural beauty, places of historic interest and exceptional local wines, many of which can be sampled at local caveaux.

L'Hérault department, has the ancient city of Béziers at its centre and a surrounding hinterland which ranges from the pristine beaches of the Mediterranean to the Upper Languedoc National Park with its unspoilt mountains, cliffs, waterfalls, rivers and the beautiful Lac du Salagou, registered historic villages, and a wide variety of artistic and cultural attractions.
