Today, " Septimania " is the true South of France, to the East are the "chic" resorts of Cannes etc. to the South - the Spanish "Costas", with all their "High Rise" - here we have a wonderful climate, fabulous beaches, ski resorts, every kind of sport and countryside, but most of all we have the real, the true flavour of Southern France, and the space, and the time to enjoy it!
