There are many public holidays in France. These days are often followed by extra days off called 'ponts' ('bridges') in France, which allow people to make it a long weekend. These special dates could provide the ideal opportunity to arrange a longer stay in Languedoc.

Have a look in our Main Events in Languedoc section and see if you can add a local celebration or cultural festival to your programme. Don't forget that advanced booking of accommodation is advised for many of the public holiday periods.
