Mediterranean Coast

The Narbonnaise region is named after the city of Narbonne, the ancient capital of the Roman province. The city boasts an exceptional wealth of history and built heritage (Roman Horreum, Via Domitia, Archbishops’ Palace, Gothic St Just cathedral, the old town and the Canal de la Robine).

The Narbonnaise also features 50 km of sandy beaches and surprising scenery. The mountains of Corbières and La Clape are the backdrop to lakes where flamingos fly, and the seaside villages of Gruissan, Leucate, Port-La Nouvelle, Narbonne-Plage and Saint-Pierre-la-Mer bathe in a lively family atmosphere. When the wind drops and all is calm, why not spend the day swimming and sunbathing with the family in this amazing Mediterranean region?
