Agde is a small town in the Languedoc-Roussillon region on the south coast of France, just over 60km from Montpellier. The river Hérault runs through this charming Mediterranean port, which has both stretches of beautiful sandy beaches and old winding streets. The nearby naturist beach of Cap D'Agde is extremely popular in the summer months but the town of Agde is a quieter neighbour - a place to get away from the crowds and spend calm days in a traditional French town setting. The town is set on a volcano and the lava rock is what many of the local buildings are made of, giving them a dark, distinctive look.
The Canal du Midi passes through Agde and gives the town a peaceful feel, where you can take boat trips that take you through neighbouring Séte before leading you to the Mediterranean.
Madame Vacances Les Pescalunes Cottages are situated in a pine forest right between the Cap d'Agde and the town of Agde, with views out over the Mediterranean. From the Residence you are just a short walk from the beaches down a hill with walking and cycle paths. The town is only 1km away and the neighbouring towns of Bériers and Séte are just 25km away and worth a visit to explore the Languedoc region.
