Things to Do

One of the things that attracted us to this area was its varied landscape - from mountain to coast, from canal to vineyard, from modern marina to Roman ampitheatre.

You can be kayaking down the river Orb in the morning and surveying the majesty of the hill-top Cathar castles in the afternoon.

The most extreme example of this diversity is the newly built, spectacular Millau viaduct, now the tallest bridge in the world, and the impressive Roman aqueduct the Pont du Gard, near Nimes.

The region therefore offers visitors a wide choice of activities:
