Doused in heritage with old hamlets, drowsy villages and towns studding its lush green hills, Southern France’s Occitania region only officially come into being in 2016 with the pairing of Languedoc-Roussillon and the Midi-Pyrenees, two historically Occitan regions, with a stack of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
I took a saunter through one of the lesser known, but truly delightful French backwaters, where fine food and drink still rule the heart.
You can watch a programme ‘Destination Midi Pyrenees‘ about the visit on Globetrotter TV.
It will also appear on the Holiday and Cruise channel soon.
You can read about the trip in Pro Traveller Magazine: Gastronomy and more in the Midi-Pyrenees
