All our Languedoc Roussillon collections:

If you know which bit of this varied region you want to see most, go straight to our guru's list , otherwise here are some of the best places to stay in the Languedoc Roussillon.

The Languedoc is the bit of sun drenched southern France between the Rhone River, the Garonne River and the coast. Now referred to as the Languedoc-Roussillon, this region of France has long been known for its down to earth nature, varied and beautiful landscape and complicated history - it's been owned by just about everyone.

You won't find poseurs on the beaches here. The coastline is varied, and while some of it is perfect for a beach resort break (there are plenty of blue flag beaches), some of it is pretty dramatic too.

Capital of the region, Montpellier is one of the best places to stay in the Languedoc Roussillon if you're looking for elegant boulevards and graceful architecture. Montpellier has made money, and then spent it on looking lovely. Its atmosphere is one of culture, tolerance and appreciation of the aesthetic.

Carcassonne is definitley one of the best places to stay in the Languedoc Roussillon for fans of beautiful medieval architecture. Sitting like a proper fairytale castle atop a hill, this medieval castle-of-a-town has 53 turrets, and ramparts and walls which have been strengthened - by adding width - several times.

Carcassonne's last major building works took place in the 13th Century, and it was only repaired and restored in the 19th. That's why it looks in reasonable repair. Surrounded by beautiful vineyards, this town attracts a lot of visitors in the summer, and a lot of festivals. The citadel provides a wonderful backdrop to every occasion, especially when it's all lit up in the evening.

The Hotel Guru's pick of the best places to stay in the Languedoc Roussillon ranges from rustic farmhouse B&Bs to sophisticated luxury escapes. There truly is something for everyone whatever your taste or budget!

Best places to stay in the Languedoc Roussillon

Seductive Montpellier?

  • If you're looking for somewhere grand to stay the Boudon de Manuy is one of the best places to stay in the Languedoc Roussillon. The ceilings in some of the eight rooms and suites are nothing short of palatial. All are different, and while some have original 18th Century features, some are quite modern. Hire the entire property for a really special occasion.
  • For foodies try Le jardin des sens. Its restaurant has two Michelin stars. And also offers cooking classes. The 15 rooms are decorated with modern art and sculpture - making it a big pull for modern art lovers as well.
  • If you're looking for luxury, one of the best places to stay in the Languedoc Roussillon is Domain de Verchant. Set in hectares of vineyards, this is a spa resort and country-château-hotel type affair. it is the kind of place where you can have everything just to your liking - from traditional decor to super modern, from a private dining or spa experience to a separate, self catering villa for your whole family.

Historic Nîmes?

  • If you want to be central the Hotel La Maison de Sophie is the best place to stay in Nimes. Art Deco in style, this townhouse B&B has furniture dating from the same period and large rooms full of character.

Magical Carcassonne?

  • If you do want to stay right in the medieval heart of Carcassonne, then your best option is at 42 Rue Victor Hugo. The decor is lovely - all high ceilings, parquet floors and fancy fireplaces.  
  • The Chateau de Cavanac is one of the best places to stay in the Languedoc Roussillon if you're using Carcassonne as a base to explore the whole region. This ivy covered chateau is a wonderfully rural retreat, with plenty of space for a pool and tennis courts. With rooms starting from less than £60 a night this is also a great choice for those on a budget.

Rural Idyll?

  • If you're looking for a hideaway in the hills check out Le Tresor. There's plenty of outdoors-y type activities to keep you entertained, from tennis to sailing, with beaches and lakes a short drive away. With only five rooms and one villa, this is also probably one of the best places to stay in the Languedoc Roussillon for people travelling with a group of friends.
  • If you fancy a chateau break, Chateau des Ducs de Joyeuse should tick all the boxes. With its round corner turrets it looks like something out of a children's book. And inside it's just as lovely and old fashioned. There are four poster beds, high ceilings and open fireplaces.
