The Languedoc borders the Provence to the east and Spain to the west, and is the most authentic stretch of French Mediterranean coastline. It contains the famous Canal du Midi that connects the Mediterranean sea to the Atlantic. In addition to its many inland villages, chateaux and market towns, the Languedoc is also famed for its regional capital, Carcassonne, which plays host to one of Europe’s oldest surviving medieval castles:
