May is one of the best months of the year to visit Languedoc

May is a bit of a secret. Like October it is one of those secret months. A secret month that the French enjoy to the limit with numerous public holidays. A month to sing the joys of nature, of flowers, of rebirth. Come if you can to enjoy a lightness in the air, a sense of vitality and enjoyment of living.
