The real luxury is being there!

It is impossible to talk about Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon in the singular. Like its wines and agricultural and food products, Languedoc-Roussillon is many destinations, all exceptionally rich in natural, historic and cultural assets.

Sud de France is the umbrella brand created by the Languedoc-Roussillon region for tourism, wine and agrifood products. Spanning the three sectors, the Sud de France brand was created to foster the local, national and international commercialization of Sud de France products and wines while at the same time promoting Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon tourist destinations.

Today, this strategy of supporting and promoting the local economic fabric has brought together 2 200 regional firms and nearly 7 800 products. And the Sud de France family continues to grow all the time. Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon also encompasses 700 Qualité Sud de France establishments and 70 top-of-the-range establishments included within the “Cercle Prestige”.

Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon destinations have exceptional natural assets including a sunny climate, the sea, the mountains and beautiful landscapes.

Languedoc-Roussillon also has an incredibly rich cultural and historic heritage. The region is home to six majestic Unesco world heritage sites including the Pont du Gard, Canal du Midi, the city of Carcassonne, the Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle pilgrimage routes, the Vauban fortresses of Mont-Louis and Villefranche-de-Conflent, and the Causses and the Cévennes regions. In addition, Languedoc-Roussillon has ten “Grands Sites de France” operations, vibrant cities with countless museums and festivals, 13 villages that have earned the  prestigious French label, “Les plus beaux villages de France”, awarded to only the most beautiful villages in France, 11 Cathar castles, carnivals, nautical events, fishing festivals, races, local markets, and historic spectacles, to name only a few. 


With 30 appellations and over 60 vins de pays including reds, whites, rosés, sparkling, still and naturally fortified wines, Languedoc-Roussillon wines are as diverse as the region. However, these wines all have in common a certain frank quality that makes them especially pleasant to drink, festive and yet untamed.

Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon destinations also offer a multitude of specialties including Cassoulet from Castelnaudary, anchovies from Collioure, oysters from Leucate, Gruissan and Bouzigues, brandade from Nimes, “le pélardon”, sweet onions from the Cévennes, rousquilles cookies from Vallespir, apricots from Roussillon, le Bleu des Causses, rice and salt from the Camargue,  and Catalan and Lozérienne charcuterie, among countless other products. Sud de France has something for every eating and drinking occasion from the family dinner, to an impromptu get together, to a glass of wine among friends, or a picnic by the seaside. 

Bringing together regional firms from different economic worlds including artisans, producers and distributers, Languedoc-Roussillon has focused on pooling resources, expertise and talents. Today, Sud de France has expanded its footprint by supporting communication campaigns for wines, products and destinations from all over the region.
