Beziers holidays are hugely varied, where visitors can be as active or relaxed as they like. Beziers is a large town, sprawling through the charming landscapes of the Herault department in Languedoc-Roussillon, southern France.
Beziers is home to a huge number of historic attractions. The Beziers tourist information office has some fantastic route maps to take, allowing you to see the most impressive monuments and buildings with a minimum of walking. The central esplanade, the Allee Paul Riquet is a fantastic place to start your exploration, which runs from the theatre to the Plateau des Poets Park. There are no less than 12 themed walks to enjoy around the town, information on all of which can be obtained from the Beziers tourist information offices.
Beziers holidays are especially known for their shopping credentials. Many villas in Beziers become filled with toys, fashion items and luxury foods during Beziers holidays, as it is almost impossible to resist popping into the boutiques and charming little shops that line the streets.
The UNESCO accredited Canal du Midi passes along the outskirts of Beziers, and the beautiful River Orb flows serenely around the other side. Where these two meet, you will discover a world first from your holiday rental cottage in Beziers; the River Canal Bridge. The bridge is an astonishing feat of engineering, taking the canal over the river. Both river and canal are an absolute joy to walk beside, canoe along or fish from anywhere along their reach. Fishing permits are easily available to anyone staying in a villa in Beziers, available from most local tabacs.
The city of Agde is a magnificent place to visit from a Beziers property. Located on the coastline, Agde is not only a beautifully elegant city build on an extinct volcano, but is also a fantastic coastal resort, where the beach life lives on strongly. Agde is in fact France’s oldest city, filled with elegant monuments and atmospheric streets. The Cap d’Agde, Europe’s largest nudist resort, has over 3km of beaches, but if you would prefer to retain your modesty, there can be no shortage of beaches either.
