Montpellier is the sun-drenched, cultured capital of the Languedoc region in the South of France, situated but a few miles inland from the Mediterranean Sea. It’s also a youthful, vibrant university town, and one of France’s most multicultural cities, regularly voted the most ‘desirable place to live’ in France. In short, this is the must-visit destination in the area. Happily, Siblu holiday park Le Lac des Rêves is nearby and it’s just a short drive from La Carabasse too.

The Mare Nostrum Aquarium is also a delight and a surprise: there are plenty of fish, sharks and penguins to see, but also immensely fun interactive experiences.
The Languedoc region is also one of the world’s largest wine producing regions, and there are interesting reds, whites and rosés to sample everywhere you go and tons of vineyards just a short drive out of the city.
