Make a holiday rental villa or gite in Agel, France your home away from home

Agel is a tiny village in the heart of the mountainous region of Herault, in Languedoc-Roussillon. The Saint-Chinian area is a wonderful place to get away and completely relax away from the tourist crowds, and the history, which dates back to the 8th century is genuinely fascinating.

Things to do in Agel, France

An Agel villa is one of those rare places that you can enjoy a hugely active holiday or a completely relaxed holiday. The atmosphere, peace and scenery mean that you can happily spend many days doing nothing at all. However, if you are looking for activity, history or culture, the whole region is at your mercy.

The Pyrenean landscapes of Languedoc-Roussillon are ideal for anyone that enjoys the great outdoors. The whole region is a maze of walking, mountain biking and horse riding routes, which reach far into the mountains. Along your travels, you will enjoy a great range of historic monuments, seemingly forgotten by modern life, spectacular viewpoints and rich nature.

The Mediterranean is well within an hour's drive of Agel accommodation. The beaches are a huge attraction from May until October, with countless miles of sandy beaches to choose from. Even during the height of summer, local beaches do not suffer the crowding of the Cote d'Azur just along the coast, but the beaches are just as beautiful. Water sports are easily arranged too, with sailing, fishing and scuba diving trips leaving from ports along the coast.

Place to visit from Agel, France

Beziers is a beautiful medieval town that deserves at least an afternoon during any Agel holiday. There is always something going on in Beziers, from the theatre to the rugby stadium, and there is a huge amount to see. The famous Canal du Midi is a perfect place to walk off a few of the pounds gained in one of the town's excellent restaurants, the majority of which serve the best local fare. The Cathedral of St Nazaire and Roman amphitheatre cannot be missed.

The picturesque town of Narbonne should also not be missed. Filled with timeless cafes and fascinating museums, Narbonne is always a favourite afternoon out from an Agel villa. Canal boat rides along the Canal de Robine are a particular highlight.

Weather in Agel, France

Agel, located deep in the south of France, close to the border with Spain, is blessed with a wonderfully warm climate. During the summer, an Agel villa with a pool is priceless as daily peak temperatures reach well into the 30's (C) at times from May right through until September. The spring and autumn months are a fantastic time to visit if you are not a great fan of the heat, as conditions remain warm and mild.

Flights to Agel, France

Carcassonne is the nearest airport to Agel, just 50km away. There are regular flights to Carcassonne from across the UK, but if there are no convenient flights, there are another 4 airports within two hours of a self catering Agel villa to choose from. Having a hire car is strongly recommended whilst staying in Agel accommodation, as the region is very rural, and offers so much to see and do that real freedom is essential.

On arrival, Wendy offered us the choice of either gite - it was a difficult choice as both are delightful, very comfortable, and fully equipped; we opted for the one Wendy had prepared to cause least upheaval. Out gite was spotlessly clean, with an ample relaxation area (with choice of British or French TV!), separate dining area, and a sizeable, fully equipped - and I mean fully! - kitchen area. Upstairs are two nicely sized bedrooms with great views, comfortable beds, and ample hanging/drawer space; the modern bathroom is also found on this floor. Outside, to the front is the entrance drive with ample parking; to the rear, there is a personal alfresco dining table just outside, but also many more to choose from dotted around the large garden. The pool is perfect for cooling off on the typical hot days from May to September - and just as nice to lounge around soaking up the sun. The whole setting is completely rural, with fantastic distant views all around. Wendy and Pat are the most delightful hosts, very friendly, informative, and helpful - on arrival, we found that Wendy had provided bread, milk, tea, sugar, biscuits, cheese, and a bottle of a superb wine; living next door, it was reassuring to know there was always help on hand if necessary, but otherwise, they were both completely low profile. We stayed for a week towards the end of October - for a change, we didn't want the usual hot, sunny, pool-dipping, lounger-reclining sort of holiday, we wanted cooler weather to explore the region thoroughly. Nevertheless, we still enjoyed warm, sunny days, and visited several very interesting historical sites, and, of course, the various seaside resorts. That's another great thing about the location - just far enough away to feel completely rural, but only 30 minutes drive from the coast, 20 minutes from Narbonne, 10 minutes to Capestang, and 5 minutes to Lidl! All in all, we had a really wonderful stay and can thoroughly recommend either gite to families or couples who can enjoy a lazy, relaxing holiday around the pool, or use the stay as a base for touring the region - or a bit of both.

It is hard to imagine a better balance of peaceful rural french life. Azille Manson is an equally lovely and traditional french house, tucked away down pedestrian only road on three floors with three excellent sized bedrooms, a great open plan living space and a courtyard with gas barbecue - something we used several times. The kitchen is well equipped and just about everything that you could want is there. One more traditional thing about Azille is the local church. It's very pretty and the bells ring out the time every hour on the hour. Who needs an alarm clock! If you are a light sleeper you may need to bear that in mind!
