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.

The owners clearly take a lot of care and time to make sure their guests are not disappointed. We had a fantastic time here, enjoying the peaceful location and comfortable gite. N.B. very comfortable bed and good shower. Best of all is the pool. It is well designed with planting around and is a wonderful temperature. Good loungers and shades, and underfoot paving that does not burn your feet in hot sunshine. Generous sized swimming towels are provided. The pool is shared with the owners but on the basis that guests have sole access to it for several hours of the day - it worked really well for us. Without a car, we were grateful that the village centre was within a few hundred yards and we did all the shopping we needed there, including our croissants (two bakeries) each morning. Bize has its own charm, with a riverside where you can swim, and medieval streets. We explored the beautiful surrounding area by bike. Narbonne is a flat ride, a day trip, mostly away from much traffic, and some of the route traffic free along the Canal de la Robine. Or you can choose hillier routes - the area seems popular with cyclists. The owners are warm and friendly: we felt welcomed and would happily return.

It is well positioned and Simon and Lynda are absolutely delightful combining privacy with recommendations in the correct proportions.
