The Languedoc-Roussillon, just next to the Provence, is less known that its neighbour but has just as much charm and variety.
You’ll find there a combination of mountains, scenic rivers, pretty villages and dramatic coastal landscapes, such as the Camargue.
Be prepared: the Camargue has nothing to do with the Riviera: lying on marshes, it is wild and untamed. The whole area is a natural reserve which is like its own little country. There you can observe wild white horses and black bulls, flamingos, eagles…it is perfect for wild nature lovers. La Camargue has a bit of a Spanish feel and the towns are always buzzing with life and music.
Discover also the Gard area with its traditional villages and impressive Roman ruins; if you like mountains, don’t miss the opportunity to explore the fabulous Cevennes.
If you are after an authentic stone hamlet or mas for your wedding, and want to be out of the beaten track, the Languedoc-Roussillon region might be perfect for you.
