The Languedoc region in South France has some of the best beaches in Europe. The Languedoc coast has wide, open, golden sandy beaches with azure blue skies and turquoise waters. With over 300 days sunshine a year and temperatures constantly above 30o for 4 months every summer, you are sure to go back home as brown as a berry.
We are constantly asked for houses to rent close to the beach in the South of France and we have now dedicated a section just for Villas and apartments to rent within 15 mins of a beach (see Beach houses France). The benefit of most of our beach houses is that if you are looking for something else to do other than top up your tan, then there are plenty of other tourist attractions and days out within easy reach.
If you are looking to come to the Languedoc for a beach holiday, I would probably suggest these 5 places as the best coastal towns and resorts to search for accommodation:
- Meze - this is a popular harbour town close to Montpellier. Meze has its own beach and there are plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes on the port. Montpellier airport is just 25 mins away
- Collioure - this coastal town is absolutely stunning. Located in the very south of the Languedoc region, close to the Spanish border, Collioure is a very picturesque place and you have your choice of 3 beaches.
- Argeles-sur-Mer - situated close to Collioure, this famous French beach resort has a long sandy beach with lovely views of the Pyrenees in the background. There are lots of activities to keep the kids amused, as well as a number of popular music festivals in the summer.
- Marseillan - this is another lovely harbour town close to the beach resorts of Marseillan PLage and Cap d'Agde.
- Cap d'Agde - is blessed with some of the best beaches in Languedoc, as well as a whole range of sports activities, water parks and childrens' entertainments.
