DISCOVER THE SOUTH OF FRANCE
YOU DIDN'T KNOW EXISTED...
COMING IN 2021
Welcome to one of the most interesting regions in France. One that is tremendously rich in history, geography, culture, and, of course, gastronomy. And one that is vastly underappreciated. Pour yourself a glass of luscious Languedoc Carignan, settle into a sumptuous bowl of cassoulet or a plate of freshly harvested oysters, and enjoy the view.
With stunningly beautiful landscapes extending from the mountains of Central France to the Mediterranean, Occitanie is the past home of pre-Neanderthals, Romans, Vikings, Moors, Catalans, Lengadociens, and Cathars, among others. Whether your tastes run to mountains, beaches, castles, medieval villages, or museums, we have it here for you.
We hope that you will join us here and enjoy the bounties of southern France . And we know that you will come to love it as much as we have.
Welcome to our home.
WELCOME TO OCCITANIE!
FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Our primary goal is to showcase Occitanie to anyone unfamiliar with the region, whether our fellow Americans, French, British, or from anywhere else in the world. If you are interested in Occitanie, we would be thrilled to introduce it to you. And if you already know Occitanie, but just want to get another perspective, we would love to meet you as well.
Our home base is the village of Ginestas, well-situated between the mountains of the Haut-Languedoc, the Pyrenées and the Mediterranean. We are 2 hours from the airport in Toulouse and 3 hours from airports in Marseille and Barcelona.
