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.

We spent 10 glorious days here basking in the sunshine - the gite has everything you need, is spotless and the bed is extremely comfortable -a perfect base to explore Bize and the surrounding area. Karen and David are very friendly and helpful hosts. The village of Bize itself is very picturesque and has enough amenities for day-to-day needs - two lovely bakers, a small supermarket and a few restaurants. We particularly liked Cafe du Midi for both lunch and dinner - very reasonably priced and friendly service with some great food. We loved the terrace area in front of the gite with plenty of shade and ate breakfast and lunch there most days. The pool area is immaculately clean and surrounded by lovely gardens. The village is a good base for both local walks as well as nearby towns (Narbonne, Carcassonne, Gruissan). Fabulous walks along the Canal du Midi in many of the surrounding villages with lots of choice of great restaurants. We hope to return one day. Thank you once again Karen and David.

When we arrived on a Monday afternoon, Wendy and Pat were there to greet us and made us feel very welcome indeed. The Gite was airy and spacious and had all mod cons. There was ample parking in front of the house and the door to the rear lead to our private patio area and on into the lovely garden and pool. What not to like?-! During our stay, we went out each day visiting vineyards and nearby places of interest (of which there are many) and would return home, as we liked to call the gite, to relax and share a glass or two of wine. Dispite the proximity of the busy road, the evenings were quiet events and we were able to enjoy sitting outside and enjoying the view. Our neighbours in the next door gite were delightful and also two friends joined us for a few nights in the spare bedroom which worked well. This was aided by the fact the the loo was separate from the bathroom and directly across from it. A newly built Lidl with a fantastic wine section is just a few minutes drive away as was the Intermarche which had the edge foodwise. Capestang is a pretty old town with several restaurants to look out for, and of course the Canal du Midi (the main reason we chose Capestang) is within walking distance from the centre of town (or you can park up over the bridge) and walk or bike along the canal path. Alongside the canal there is just one bar/restaurant and this is reasonably priced and gives you a good view at the passing boats. The Gite and Capestang is well placed to visit Carcassonne, Cather ruins, Beziers and Narbonne both of whom have long sandy beaches. If you are a wine buff then there are several domaines you can visit in particular Chateau Perdiguier outside Maraussan.
