Languedoc, an Occitan land
Beyond the vagaries of administrative divisions, the name Occitanie traditionally refers to a cultural area corresponding roughly to the southern half of France along with a few small valleys in Italy and the Aran Valley in the Spanish part of Catalonia. You may be unfamiliar with Occitan (of which Provençal is the best-known written form), but this Latin language close to French and Catalan explains the diverse accents heard on the tongues of people from Toulouse, Nice, and the regions of Auvergne and Béarn.
Occitanie is of course famous for its Medieval troubadours, men and women whose influence spreads all across Europe, but also for its gastronomy, a direct legacy of the refinements of an ancient Roman cuisine featuring herbs, fried foods, anchovies and various sweet-and-sour dishes. Make the most of your stay at the campsite to try the little restaurants serving dishes that are sophisticated yet based on simple, wholesome ingredients and traditions now dating back over a thousand years.
