Magnifique! From the mountains to the Mediterranean

Occitanie is the romantic region in southern France where the Mediterranean coastline meets the Pyrenees mountains. Your Occitanie vacation rental serves as an excellent jumping-off point for exploring the region and its quaint villages, rolling countryside, and rustic vineyards. Outdoor enthusiasts will soak up the watery setting, from Mediterranean beaches to the Canal du Midi, the 150-mile-long canal in southern France. You'll find numerous charming towns and cities throughout the region as well, from bustling hot spots like Toulouse and Montpellier, to the charming medieval town of Carcassonne.

Boats, beaches, and bikes—outdoors in Occitanie

Montpellier is home to a host of popular beaches where you can sunbathe or swim the day away, while the port of Sete features frenzied water-jousting tournaments. Canal du Midi offers activities in the water and on land, with its boat rides and waterfront trails, respectively. If that's not enough of a workout, you'll find numerous bike paths throughout the area. Looking to relax? The quaint town of Rodez features a lively Saturday morning market which offers a variety of local goods. Your Occitanie vacation rental will also place you near 1 of the Pyrenees' little spa towns or ski resorts.

A bridge to the past—ancient artifacts and historic haunts

Occitanie features spectacular architecture, from the medieval walled fortress of Carcassonne, to the breathtakingly beautiful St-Sernin Cathedral in Toulouse. The small town of Alibi is home to the 13th-century Berbie Palace and the oldest bridge in France, a structure dating back to 1040. The spectacular Roman aqueduct the Pont du Gard sits just outside the town of Nimes, and you can explore it on foot or by kayak. If you're looking for something a bit more laidback, tour a local winery or visit the lush grounds of Montpellier Jardin des Plantes, a historic botanical garden and arboretum.

Seasons change: from sunshine to snowfall

Summers in Occitanie are sunny, dry, and warm, particularly along the coast, where temperatures frequently climb into the 80s. Early fall is often humid with heavy rains. The region also gets hit with lots of rainfall in early spring, when the days are often cloudy and cool. The region heats up in late spring as the temperatures reach the 70s and the sunshine returns. Winter on the plains, valleys, and mountains is frequently chilly, as snow falls at higher elevations and temperatures hover near freezing.

Forests, fields, and… flamingos? Occitanie's wild landscape

Get lost in nature at the Cevennes National Park, a pristine setting dotted with sprawling pastures, dense forests, and towering mountains. Just south of the park is the area known as the Camargue, a unique landscape made up of marshes, lakes, and canals, where pink flamingos, wild horses, and bulls roam free. While the jagged, snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees dominate the scenery, the gentle, green rolling hills of the Cevennes mountains add a pop of color to Occitanie's setting.
