Travel Guide
Agde

Agde is the black pearl of the Med and will seduce you with its diversity. Nature and history, freedom and the good life, this seaside resort has it all.

The town boasts an ideal location at the mouth of the River Hérault and enjoys the perfect climate for sunny holidays and much more. Agde is also a historical town. As you stroll through the shaded streets, you will discover the 12th century Bishop's Palace, the Hotel Malaval, the Round Lock on the Canal du Midi and the ruins of the ancient ramparts, as well as Château Laurens which is a neoclassical wonder.

Several sites in the town of Agde are part of the Natura 2000 network, such as the Bagnas National Nature Reserve whose ponds are home to protected species of fish and where you can observe more than 240 species of birds. The former basalt quarries, which have been redeveloped, contain palmate newts and marbled newts. You can also observe seven Mediterranean biotopes along the Sentier sous-marin underwater trail which follows the cliff at Cap d'Agde.

It is this conservation of the environment and the long sandy beaches which give the Cap d'Agde naturist centre its international reputation. From hotels to camp sites to guest houses – you will find all you need to get closer to nature, in complete freedom. Cap d'Agde's three beaches – la Méridienne, le Galion and le Paralia Beach Club – all have lifeguards, restaurants and offer a range of water sports. Enjoy your holiday to Cap d'Agde au naturel, whether you're with your partner, family or friends.

Take a boat trip to the Île de Brescou, close to the entrance to Port Richelieu. Brescou is the only island in Languedoc-Roussillon and is famous for its fort and two lighthouses. When you get back, why not take a stroll along the plane tree-lined banks of the Canal du Midi, and admire the pleasure boats? Or perhaps enjoy a delicious Coteau du Languedoc on a shady terrace?

A simple hotel but reasonable
"This is a two star hotel and doesn't make any pretensions of being anything else. Service on check in was friendly with the member of staff being helpful.
