Languedoc-Roussillon is one of those areas of France where you can feel like you’re totally cut off from the rest of the country. Commercial tourism has been very slow to capitalise on the region, meaning you can still enjoy a slice of authentic French rural life at its finest. A mixture of landscapes also makes it a great place to visit, with a good stretch of coastline offering a totally different experience to more bucolic interiors. Whatever you’re looking for, our range of villas and chateaux in Languedoc means you can get exactly the kind of holiday you want with accommodation that’s perfectly tailored to you, your friends and your family.

  • What more could you want?

    Posted by Caroline on 28/08/2017

    A fantastic location for a wedding, just beautiful and so relaxing. I feel very lucky to have attended. Day 2 was spent relaxing by the pool.

  • Dreamy

    Posted by Cathy on 04/07/2017

    This venue was perfect for our dream wedding that we will remember always! We will definitely be back one day.

  • The chateau was more than our expectations!

    Posted by Alain Gaudet on 08/08/2014

    We have had a very nice stay at Chateau du Capitaine. The website description of the chateau was one the factors for our choice. The owner of the property was very gracious and helpful. We would recommend it to anyone who is looking for similar accommodation. Its location in southern France is well located for being in the area of vineyards. In the nearby village there were local markets selling lots of fresh seafood and vegetables. The markets were very good and close to the chateau. The short drive to the beach was very enjoyable. The Chateau pool offered a very private place to relax and enjoy the day.We had an excellent and enjoyable holiday.

  • So much to see and do!
