About the area

There's just so much to do and see.

Both the 'Gîte' and B&B are located about 12 kms from Béziers. Here you can visit the amphitheatre ( Arena ), the cathedral, the theatre, the Canal du Midi with its 9 locks......in fact there are so many places to see which are full of history.

Béziers offers a wide range of interesting shopping and good restaurants, many of which are in the charming pedestrian area of the town. There is a covered market and a colorful flower market is held every Friday on the Esplanade. The magnificient cathedral dominates the city and tells the sad tale of the death of several thousand Cathars in medieval times.

North of Béziers there are deep river-valleys surrounded by high rocks with fantastic views over the countryside. This region in general offers many possibilities for everyone.

 For those who like water: the  mediterranean offers surfing, water-skiing, and the rivers Orb and Hérault offer swimming, fishing and canyoing. You can also hire a canal boat and go up the Canal du Midi.

Then there's Montpellier  ( 45 min ) with over two thousand five hundred years of history, and of course Carcassonne - the city of the cathars and the massive 'La Cité' fortress. Nearby the many Cathar-castles are worth a trip too. Also worth visiting are Narbonne ( 30 min ), Pezenas, the city of Molière ( 15 min ).

Within a 45 min drive you are in the mountains ( the Cevennes ) where you'll find lots of caves which you can visit as well. And lastly for the gourmets: the bassin de Thau is known for its oysters and mussels.
