An apartment holiday rental is a great base for exploring Languedoc Roussillon, an area rich in visits and activities. Visit Narbonne, for example, with its Roman heritage, medieval quarter and Gothic cathedral or head for stunning Carcassonne - its medieval citadel is the largest in Europe. The region's landscapes are equally enticing. The coastal lagoons offer superb watersports and bird-watching whilst the Corbieres Hills are famed for their hill-top Cathar medieval strongholds which you can take in as part of the 250km long Sentier Cathare. Then, at the end of the day, how about cassoulet, and locally grown soft fruits such as peaches and cherries washed down with Languedoc wines - Fitou and Blanquette de Limoux come from here.
