It is a very diverse area with low-lying coastal areas, the low mountain range in the department of Lozère and the high peaks of the Pyrenees.

The area is known for its lively seaside resorts, ancient fishing ports and luxury marinas.
The Canal du Midi is a 250 km long canal between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean and runs through the regions of Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrenees. The canal begins at Toulouse and flows into the Mediterranean Sea in the fishing town of Sète.
