Canal du Midi
The Hérault, the ideal destination for your camping holiday
Low season or high season, the Hérault has so many treasures to share, whether you love lazing on the beach or getting out and about in the midst of nature. Here, you never have to choose! Only a few kilometres separate the balmy waters of the Mediterranean from the wild landscapes of the Hérault valley.
And since you’re in Occitanie, you’ll be able to make the most of the endless sunshine for a fabulous holiday at a 4 or 5 star campsite. The perfect compromise between comfort and getting back to nature. Book your tent or mobile home and prepare to enjoy the good life: bathing and slip-sliding away in the swimming pools and water slides of the water park, tennis, volleyball or pétanque on the sport grounds, chilling out as you top up your tan on the solarium terrace... Enjoy whatever you feel like doing, whenever you feel like doing it. That’s what holidays are all about!
Visit the Hérault with the family
Natural beauty spots, leisure activities, entertaining visits and trips that surprise, the Hérault is brimming with fun things to keep your little adventurers happy! Begin with a journey to the centre of the Earth in the famous Clamouse cave at the entrance to Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert or that of the Grotte des Demoiselles, both renowned for their impressive size! The perfect halt before your canoe trip through the Gorges de l’Hérault!
On your return to Montpellier, head for the tropics and the Amazonian jungle at the Lunaret Zoo as you wander from mangrove to tree-top canopy. And if, just for once, the sun has decided to play hide and seek, then take the family to the Galileo Planetarium and a starry-eyed voyage through space!
Visit the Hérault as a couple
Strolling arm-in-arm through one of the most beautiful villages in the Hérault, bathing together on a Mediterranean beach, enjoying a romantic cruise along the Canal du Midi... There are so many special moments to share with your significant other! For authenticity and romance, where better than starting your journey at Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France”? You’ll love losing yourselves in the labyrinth of narrow streets within its ramparts, or taking your time to explore the cloister of the Gelonne Abbey, the jewel of the town.
Feel the call of the sea? Follow the Languedoc coastline as far as the Étang de Thau, ready to sample the best oysters in the region. On the horizon, Sète awaits you with beaches, delicious tielles and a sublime panorama from the heights of the Mont Saint-Clair!
