Cap d'Agde


Agde Day Trips in the Languedoc Region

Vineyard in Languedoc

There are many great options for going on tours and trips around the Languedoc region and below a look at some of your favourite places to visit for a day away from the naturist quarters.

Toulouse-Lautrec Museum

We went to Albi as well; the Toulouse-Lautrec museum is amazing for fans of his work, and the drive there (through the vineyards and mountains) is breathtaking. The museum is definitely worth the effort and it can make for a great day away from the resort.

Carcassonne, Marseilles, Sete and Agde

Carcassonne is very popular with the tourists. While something to marvel at, it will be crowded, especially during the summer. (Cascassonne is generally on the way to Albi). Marseilles is doable as an all-day trip, but you won’t have enough time to see everything. The nearby towns of Sete and Beziers are cute. Sete, especially, is very charming. Agde is surrounded by vineyards that make some of the best wine in the world. It is really worth your while to go exploring, stop at some cafe, order the house wine, and see how good and cheap it is.

Albi and Montpellier

During my stays there have been windy cloudy cool days – a group of us went to Albi – about 2 hours drive with stops in St Chinon [vineyards] – really interesting as a Cathar centre and also the birthplace of Toulouse Lautrec; and another time [day trip] to Carcassonne – amazing hilltop fortified city. Montpellier is also adorable and only 60km away.

Avignon, Camargu and the Rhone Delta

Avignon is another place certainly worth considering during a stay at the Cap, with the place being a very nice city with a medieval city centre nested within old city walls. Don’t recall how long it took driving there, but you can do it on a day trip. There is also the Camargue, the Rhone delta, if you like nature.

Agde Town

The town of Agde is located in the local region of Herault, on the banks of the river Herault in South France. Situated very close to the Mediterranean Sea and is a popular destination for travellers, the main reason why people choose to visit this town might be because of the clothing optional resort, but this area is also a wonderful place for experiencing the historic culture of the region.

The town is over 2500 years old and was established by the Greeks and it is well known for its buildings that have been built out of black lava rock; the most famous of these is the one-of-a-kind fortress church on the banks of the river Herault called the Cathedral St Etienne. Other attractions in the city include the town market, the Musee Agathois, a famous museum and a few traditional restaurants which line the river bank. The Maison de Savoir, which is a fairly new cultural center, is among the main attractions of the city.

The Languedoc region of France is a wonderful area in which to travel from Agde you can benefit from a number of attractions, sites and locations. Within Agde there is the water-park and and combined with the local town of Sete (a quaint fishing village with nice beach); close to Montpellier (a main city which is great for shopping and many excellent restaurants and bars) makes this an interesting region to visit.

The town of Agde benefits from the excellent summer weather in the South of France and sitting on the beach in the town, enjoying some excellent seafood and a glass of red French wine is an excellent way of relaxing and enjoying a holiday or vacation in France. Also if you are based in Agde, you can visit a number of wineries in the nearby area. France produces some world class wines and a visit to Agde will mean the chance to sample of the finest wines.
