Information on Languedoc-Roussillon and Property Available for Sale through Leapfrog Properties
Languedoc-Roussillon is situated in the south-west of France stretching from Provence in the east down to the Pyrenees and border with Spain in the south. The northern most department of Lozere is a very under-populated wilderness with forest to the west and dry, somewhat rocky terrain to the east, and in the south-west you can explore the dramatic mountains and gorges around Cevennes and the Corbiere hills.
The most eastern part of the region is definitely more Provencal. The Roman city of Nimes lies here and still contains many Ruins and areas of Roman historical interest such as “Les Arenes”- one of the best preserved Roman arenas which hosts bull-fighting amongst other activities.
Further south in the centre of the region is the lively, energetic and youthful Montpellier which entices people with its theatres, art galleries, bars and beaches. Montpellier also offers easy access to the ancient villages and great scenery encompassed within the Herault valley. Further south still but within the Herault department is the capital of the region's wine industry- Beziers, producing some excellent specimens such as the Cotes du Rousillon and Corbieres.
The entire coastline runs for miles, of which you can still find long stretches to yourself for that essential get away. Its lagoons cut the beaches off from their hinterland preventing vast construction as seen in the Cote d’azur, however, these beaches can get somewhat windswept. There are still various resorts such as La Grande-Motte and Grau-du-Roi which still manage to maintain their character and traditions. Close to the Spanish border you stumble across the lively Catalan influenced town of Perpignan, slightly inland from the coast which marks the beginnings of the Pyrenees. This area offers the benefits of being close to the sunny beach during the summer while also being just a short trip to the snow-capped Pyrenees to ski or hike.

Property for Sale in Languedoc-Roussillon
The average price of a 2 bedroom apartment property in the Languedoc-Roussillon region is between 150k Euros and 190k Euros while the price of a 4 bedroom house is between 320k Euros and 360k Euros. The price of property for sale in Languedoc-Roussillon has been rising steadily but are cheaper than in Provence or the Cote d’Azur and for this reason along with its good transport links by autoroute, TGV and airlines it is growing in popularity. It will probably not be that long before property prices here catch up with the Cote d’Azur making it a great place to invest as building space is limited due to the vast amount of vineyards that cover the region and ever increasing demand.
Good value properties are to be found in the Pyrenees-Orientales department in the south where the Pyrenees meets the mediterranean sea. Renovation projects can be found inland but are generally hard to come by as most have already been done up in this sought after region. The Gard and Herault departments are the most expensive on average and Montpellier is the most expensive but chic and lively city. If you want to buy a property in the south of France but can't afford the property prices in Provence and the Cote d'Azur then the Languedoc Rousillon is a good choice.
