Removals services to Languedoc, France
Languedoc is the central region of the south of France. It includes the western Mediterranean coast of France, stretching from the Rhone valley in the east, to the Spanish border in the south west.
Long sandy beaches line the coastline whilst inland agriculture and bursting vineyards make up the landscape providing an escape from the cities dotted throughout the area.

Recently re-named Occitanie, Languedoc was a region in the South of France that covered an area of approximately 27,376 square kilometres. Historically, the region was called the ‘County of Tolouse’, independent from the King of France. For judicial and legislative matters, the Parlement of Tolouse was formed, the first parlement outside of Paris created by the Kings of France in order to be equivalent of the Parlement of Paris for Southern territories. The five largest metropolitan areas in the region are Toulouse, Montpellier, Nîmes, Bèziers and Alès. Between 1956 and 2016, the province was split into four regions, but after they reduced in number, Languedoc and the Midi-Pyrénées merged to form Occitanie, containing over 80% of historic Languedoc. The new name Occitanie derived from the historical name of the broader region, and the use of the Occitan language and its dialects.
The region is a significant producer of wine and produces more than a third of the grapes in France and is a focused area for investors. Also, crops such as wheat, maize, olives, fruit and rice are grown in the region, and the hilly, mountainous areas are home to sheep and goat, raised for meat and cheese. The large coastal area is a source of fish and shellfish, specifically Trout, Eels, Bass, and Bream, which you will find on many a menu. The best-known pan-regional dish is cassoulet- a filling casserole of haricot beans, mutton, pork, sausages and preserved goose, a real winter favourite. Also popular in the colder months is Wild Boar, which has a gamey taste, and can be found in the mountains. Most restaurants will serve it, and it is on sale in supermarkets at few points during the year. The climate in the region has Mediterranean influence, with the coastal plains rarely freezing in winter, and the summer days being long and dry.
