The Languedoc region of
South-West France offers spectacular scenery with the Pyrenees
Mountains tumbling down to the azure Mediterranean. A foot-path provides lovely coastal
walking and inland trails lead us to
explore vineyards and historic Cathar castles. We are based for six nights in
the exquisite sea-front town of Collioure. Many famous artists like Picasso, Matisse
and Derain lived and worked here
and today replicas of their works are displayed around the town. Even
if you're not an art enthusiast Collioure has much to offer with quaint narrow
streets, an imposing castle, pretty beaches and outdoor cafes. The
Languedoc's gastronomic heritage rivals any in France so indulging in food and
wine is a must.
About Walkers' World Languedoc Rambling Holiday: This is a two-centred week. For
six nights we stay in the Mediterranean beach-front town of Collioure
and our last night is in the historic city of Toulouse. On one day we cross over the border
into the Catalan region of Spain. On our way to Toulouse we stop to
stroll along the Canal
du Midi and to visit Carcassonne (both are UNESCO World Heritage sites). We have
two guides so there will be a choice of easy walking or some that is more
makes Walkers World Languedoc walking holidays special:
- Local professional
guides are bilingual and know their history.
- A variety of
restaurants offer a chance to sample regional cuisine. We eat at a
different restaurant every night.
- Our private bus
allows for a flexible schedule to suit our group. No waiting for
- Having two levels of guided walking
allows you to choose your pace.
