Languedoc-Roussillon is the Region that  lies on the Mediterranean Sea  in the south-west of France, with Provence to the East, Spain and
Andorra to the south, and the Masif Central to the north. The merger of two historic provinces resulted in Languedoc-Roussillon.

Languedoc was an independent area and it spoke the langue d’oc, while Roussillon was Spanish right up to the mid 17th century. It used to be known as France's Catalonia and the Catalan heritage is still evident. Languedoc-Roussillon has a unique blend of energetic cities, charming medieval villages, and some of the best coastal areas in France.
