For buying and selling property in Languedoc-Roussillon
Languedoc-Roussillon stretches along the Mediterranean to provide a fantastic climate and a coastal setting. It also stretches inland with the department of Lozère (France's least densely packed department).
Languedoc-Roussillon produces wine in abundance - it has the largest production of any area in Europe. Running through the centre is the Canal du Midi, the region also benefits from several national parks and the peaks of the Pyrenees which form part of the course of the Tour de France.
The region is noted for its relaxed pace of life (probably a result of the stifling hot summer temperatures).
Of course being so far south means that generally the weather is hot and dry - but the area is also famous for the strong cold and often rain bearing winds of the Tramontane and the Mistral.
Communication links are good - not only to the UK but also to Spain and Italy. The region is a very popular tourist destination with large stretches of the coastline housing hotels, campsites and blocks of self catering accommodation. The area has the fastest growing population of any area in France.
Property is increasing in price in this area but is still very much cheaper in general than in neighbouring Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.
