There are not many places that are better suited for walking than the Languedoc in southern France. The landscape is very diverse with plains and inclines making the region almost perfect from the point of walking. A favorite place for many! There are more than 6,000 km of hiking trails, bridle paths and marked trails through the forest, and forest areas of plateaus and plains through canyons and over the mountains. There are also themed routes and historic roads that follow the famous landmarks in France, for example, the Cathar castles and the Via Domitia, one of the oldest Roman roads. The 3,000-square-kilometer nature park of Parc Naturel Regional du Haut-Languedoc with lots of trails are only kilometers away.
Most of the hiking trails in our area, the Faugères wine region, are located close to each other which makes it easy for hikers to tie together multiple trails to a little longer.
The trails vary in length and difficulty. In other words, you will find something for everyone regardless of physical condition.
Take the opportunity to book a place now for some great vacation. The Languedoc has over 300 days of sunshine a year so you can walk and enjoy the sun virtually the year round.
At Le Saint André Bed & Breakfast we have 73 different maps of hiking routes in the Haute-Languedoc.
- Welcome to some exceptional hiking adventures in the Languedoc, says Catharina, hostess of Le Saint André Bed & Breakfast.
Some of the paths go through the vineyards. If you visit our region in late August or September make sure you stay and enjoy the harvest and some great winetasting as well.
