Hotels in Languedoc-Roussillon + the Pyrenees

A 12th-century château with 30 dreamy rooms, some with balconies over the gardens, others looking out over the Millau Viaduct.

Former bishop's residence tucked into the ramparts of a medieval citadel, with unparalleled access to the Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The renovated château has a swimming pool and serves a delightful dinner.

When food editor Orlando Murrin and his partner, Peter Steggall, first visited the Tarn, outside Toulouse, they fell in love with the landscape and immediately relocated to the south of France.

The hotel is nestled at the bottom of a picturesque gorge.

In the heart of Pézenas, steps from the town’s lively markets.

A five-room inn with Modern art and an enormous collection of books, housed in a 17th-century convent.

Reserve months in advance.

Crisp, clean rooms, with views of the medieval town.

The restaurant offers a superb lunch. The hotel only has seven rooms, all of them lovely and freshly renovated, and each with a view of the river.

The redesigned three-star château is a great value. Stroll the kitchen garden or eat at the restaurant, Auberge d'Antan, which serves exquisite Gascon cuisine - rich, earthy fare.

Despite being in downtown Nîmes, jardins secrets feels like a romantic rural refuge, with 14 guest rooms and a small swimming pool shaded by orange and olive trees hidden behind a pink façade.
