The Languedoc Roussillon Region

The Languedoc Roussillon is situated in the South-West of France. This region has many neighbouring sites such as Provence-Alpes; Côte d'Azure; Rhône-Alpes; Auvergne; Midi-Pyrénées; Spain; Andorre and the splendid Mediterranean Sea.

With A La Française you will visit some of the most delightful and unique cities the South-West has to offer. This region is famous for its history and rich Roman heritage and legacy. These historical cultural "jewels" of UNESCO (Roman Nîmes, Pont du Gard, etc) present a unique "joie de vivre" with their shady sidewalk cafés. You will meander through the maze of narrow winding streets and promenade the elegant boulevards where people relax, have coffee and watch the world go by. While you enjoy the blissful Southern climate the locals will serve you with a typical Mediterranean smile. Wine lovers will also be happy to know that Languedoc Roussillon is one of the greatest wine-producing regions in France. "Santé!"

Roujan, your A La Française host town

Roujan is a typical Languedoc village surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. This small and attractive old village lies in the Hérault "département" of southern France, close to Béziers and Montpellier, and only twenty-minutes drive to the Mediterranean coast.

Like many areas in the Languedoc, Roujan has a rich roman heritage as it used to be a "castrum" (a fortified Roman camp), as is evidenced by its circular town planning. Roujan is also home to the famous Chateau Abbaye de Cassan that has been compared to Versailles!

There is a sense of stepping back in time as you walk down the narrow cobbled streets. The houses are resplendent in traditional shades and the main street offers a good selection of bars, cafés, restaurants and shops. Furthermore, Roujan is situated in an ideal place where one can see everything the region has to offer.

  • "Nous avons passé deux bonnes semaines à Roujan et nous nous sommes bien amusés. 'Petit déjeuner' at a civilised hour, classroom activity for 2 or 3 hours, followed by a relaxing walk through the village, lunch french style and 'les devoirs' by the pool - school was never like this!"
