Many day-excursions are possible to discover the charm of the villages in the picturesque hinterland and the wine-roads of the HERAULT.
Start your discovery tour in the old charming village of Marseillan Ville and follow the - ROUTE DES VIGNERONS et DES PECHEURS - along the ETANG de THAU where oyster and mussel farms are located, using the perfect water of the lagoon.
We recommend to see the CIRQUE de la NAVACELLE with canoeing through the canyons of the rivers HERAULT or ORB, a visit to the Foster Bridge - VIADUC de MILLAU - , the PONT du GARD (Uzès), the CAMARGUE, the salt marshes of AIGUES MORTES, the CANAL du MIDI and its 9 locks at Béziers- Fonséranes. Don't miss them! The cathedral of MAGUELONE (Palavas), the abbeys of VALMAGNE or FONTFROIDE, the ruins of the Cathar castles, the wild-life resort SIGEAN. The cities of MONTPELLIER, AVIGNON, CARCASSONNE. So many things to do!
After a day at the beach spend the evening in charming PEZENAS, the town of Moliere, SETE, a lively port and home to museums or CAP d`AGDE with its aqua land resort, its mini golf in the midst of olive trees along the sea and all the amusement parks with roller skating and Go Cart facilities, playground for the little ones and a number of trendy nightclubs. All this is located on the ILE des LOISIRS.
You will also find a 18-hole-golf-course and a tennis center with more than 60 courts.
