From the rambling green countryside to the Mediterranean coastline, Occitanie is one of the most picturesque and varied regions in France
Formerly Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrénées, the sunny, peaceful and diverse area of France includes the Pyrénées mountains, the Mediterranean Sea, golden beaches, vineyards that stretch beyond the horizon and the patchwork fields of Gascony.
One of the most exciting aspects of the property market in this area is that it is still possible to find charming, spacious and well-maintained properties at a fraction of the price you would find their equivalents in Provence or the Riviera.
