There’s comprehensive coverage of all the urban centres like Toulouse, Perpignan, Montpellier and Nîmes, and of course the medieval citadel of Carcassonne.
Throughout the guide there are up-to-date descriptions of the best hotels, bars, shops, markets, cafés and restaurants, for budgets high and low, and insights into the region’s traditions, culture and heritage. We’ll lead the way to the best places to tuck into cassoulet, shuck oysters or taste renowned wines such as Picpoul de Pinet and Côtes du Roussillon.
