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.

With options for al fresco dining at both the front and rear of the property, and restaurants close by this makes for a very convenient location without the need to drive far.The accommodation is well thought out, impeccably clean with quality crockery, cutlery and glassware (often overlooked in rental accommodation). The Gite is very spacious and has all the modern conveniences in the kitchen that you would want for home cooking if you choose to prepare your own meals, a bonus was the surprise delivery of freshly laid hens eggs from the owners hens next door and made breakfast even more of a delight. I would certainly not hesitate to return to this beautiful Gite and superb canal side location. Nicole and Michel the owners live next door which was a great bonus as they have taken great care with their Gite to ensure a comfortable stay, which is not always the case in properties that are managed remotely. Parking was a bonus too, available adjacent to the property.

The house was lovely and bright and spacious and spotlessly clean. The outdoor areas are lovely with both sunny and shady spots at all times of the day. The property is perfect for both outdoor living and cosy evenings inside earlier in the season. We visited early April and found we could enjoy the outdoors till around seven but we were glad to have the cosy lounge to retire to. However the pool is a little cold this early in the season with only our hardy 9year old being brave enough to swim.
