Region of Portiragnes

A rich and welcoming region...

On the banks of the Mediterranean with its fine sand beaches, just a few miles from the Canal du Midi, as well as magnificent medieval towns, you are in Portiragnes-Plage in the Languedoc Roussillon, specifically in Hérault Department between Valras (about 10km) and Cap d’Agde (about 15 km).

The Hérault, shaped like an amphitheatre around the sea, offers a wide range of gorgeous landscapes and archeological sites, natural areas, picturesque villages and historic towns with a rich culture.

A wonderful place to live all year round or to discover for a season, and then to come back! Because you won’t be able to stay away.

 

THE HINTERLAND OF FRAGRANT "GARRIGUE"

Inland, lies the country of fragrant scrub, ponds, gorges, lakes and canals.

That hinterland will show you the magnificent landscapes of ‘garrigues’ and Camargue – ponds, lakes and canals and their banks…

It seems like all the world’s beauties have been grouped here.

For unspoiled natural beauty as far as the eye can see, traveling through the Orb Valley is a real treat for the eyes, between the villages nestling on the mountain side, with gorges that invite you for a swim or a canoe trip ... and the broad vineyards that make the reputation of Faugères and Saint Chinian wines ...

THE COASTLINE, BEACHES AND COVES

The coast from the Grande Motte to Valras Plage leads the way to magnificent fishing ports at Cap d’Agde and Sète and the marinas at Frontignan and Palavas…

Plus the lovely sand beaches at Grande Motte, Valras and Portiragnes… as well as the coves and cliffs at Sète, an unusual seaside resort at the foot of ‘Mont St. Clair’, crisscrossed with canals that have given it the name of « Venice of Languedoc »…

The Canal du Midi (Unesco)

The Canal du Midi, 240 km long, was the work of PP Ricquet in the 17th century; it links the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean. The banks are an invitation to a hike or a bike ride under the sycamores, or why not a barge trip … because today the Canal du Midi is reserved for pleasuring boating and cruises. Navigating it is no longer just a dream...

You can rent a barge to get the best possible view of the beautiful landscapes. Take it by towns and villages, cross the Orb on a Canal bridge and even climb a hill with the 8 locks in Fonséranes (out of a total of 63 locks).

« The Canal du Midi » and the « Saint Guilhem le Désert » village, built at the bottom of impressive cliffs and a stop-over on the St. James’ Way (Santiago de Compostela), are on the Unesco world heritage list.

TOWNS AND VILLAGES

Hérault has a rich historical, archeological, cultural and festive heritage

An excursion to the large towns is a must - Béziers... standing on a rocky peak over a wine-growing plain …, Carcassonne and is majestic ramparts, Pézénas a small trade and agricultural town that hosted Molière and his famous theatre… Lunel known for its bull festival and its Muscat,… Sète with its typical sports tradition and its cuisine … the Paul Valéry museum and the “Espace Brassens” – two famous names of the region, are also worth a visit.

Roquebrun village is one of the most attractive in the region ... its Mediterranean garden and conservatory of aromatic and medicinal plants is worth a side trip, so are the medieval keep and the old city.

4 km from our holiday village, the town of Portiragnes, bounded by the Canal du Midi and surrounded by vineyards, has grown up around the basalt Saint-Félix church dating back to the 12th century. It has been classified a historical monument since 14 September 1998.

Portiragnes Beach is a family seaside resort, young and athletic, where pedestrians and cyclists always take precedence. It is approved by two major environmental societies: Pavillon Bleu – contributing to keeping the seas clean, since 1996, and Station Verte – for the preservation of nature, since 2007. Preserved from the concrete of urban areas, the town is determined to keep its natural advantages intact – the dunes, between sea and land, a little Camargue, home of ducks, grey herons and pink flamencos.
