Rail Travel

The French train network is excellent. Trains are on-time as well as clean with the TGV being the fastest in Europe. TGV run services through Languedoc Roussillon, in the South France, which makes getting to Languedoc from London or Paris surprisingly easy by train.

For bookings from London to Avignon, Montpellier, Perpignan or Toulouse, visit the Rail Europe website.

To check routes and prices on the French national railway - visit the SNCF website.
By Car

Driving the Languedoc Roussillon motorway system is generally a lot less congested than those further north or the UK. Motorway tolls can be paid by cash and most credit cards. Always have your change ready though, sometimes those credit cards do not work. The speed limit on motorways to Languedoc is generally 130km/h - but sometimes drops to 110km/h.
Two main motorway routes service the Herault

Route 1:

Via Lyon, this route is busy, especially in July and August, as hoards of Parisians head south east to the Côte d'Azur. It does, however, allow you to stop in beautiful Lyon - with its superb restaurants.
Route 2:

This is the recommended route via the A75 motorway. It takes you into Languedoc across the stunning Millau Viaduct, designed by Norman Foster and the tallest in the world.

Take note that the A9 motorway, which runs along Languedoc's coastline, can get quite congested in summer carrying traffic to Languedoc's popular beach resorts, as well as traffic to and from Provence and Spain.
