We can’t recommend it enough!
We couldn’t believe how much we packed into just a weekend. We saw beautiful landscapes, visited the medieval city of Aigues-Mortes and enjoyed a relaxing day at the beach. We even managed to stumble across a tournament of the Languedoc games while we were visiting Palavas-les-Flots.
