beziers long term lets FranceBeziers ticks all the boxes in terms of a location for long term lets in France. It is situated just 10km from the Mediterranean coastline and the town is bathed in sunshine for most of the year. It has an international airport, TGV train station and excellent road connections. This old Southern French town is also quickly rejuvinating itself for life in the 21st Century and money is pouring into Beziers from property investors. So if you are looking to rent long term in France, then Beziers could be a good option to consider.

Beziers - great location to live in France

After Marseille, Beziers is one of the oldest towns in France. A settlement has been based here on the banks of the Orb river, since 575 BC, well before the Romans founded a colony here for retired soldiers in 35 BC. Like it still is today, the area around Beziers became an important centre for wine production, with much of it being shipped back to Rome. Beziers was then occupied by the Moors between 720 and 752 and then in the 13th Century it suffered perhaps one of the most bloody massacres in history. During Simon de Montfort's crusade against the Cathars (under the direct orders of the French King and indirectly the Pope), virtually the whole of the 20,000 population of the town was put to the sword.

Beziers owes its more recent fame and fortune to the Canal du Midi, which passes through the town. This brought important trade through the town, as merchandise could be transported quickly from the Atlantic to Mediterranean coast. The Canal du Midi was built by a local man, Paul Riquet, a local tax collector for the French King. Riquet is celebrated all over the city with statues, street names and buildings all commemorating him. With the arrival of the railways in France, Beziers once again prospered, with the wine from the region being shipped from Beziers up to Paris.

Beziers still bills itself as the capital of the Languedoc wine region in South France. Surrounding Beziers there are some of the best vineyards in the South of France - such as Faugeres and St Chinian. The countryside around Beziers is also very pretty and quite varied. The Haut Languedoc Regional Park is about 45mins from Beziers and offers some of the best cycling routes in Europe. You will also find some excellent walking trails. 

The beaches around Beziers are also very popular and you can catch a bus from the centre of town to reach Vias Plage, Portiragnes Plage, Serignan Plage and Vendres Plage. All the beaches around Beziers are flat with wide open expanses of golden sand.

Beziers - the slow awakening gathers pace

There is a real spirit about Beziers (sometimes too much) and its star is definitely in the ascendancy. Beziers has a reputation as a bit of a party town - especially during the summer Feria - its famous wine, music and bullfighting festival. Somebody once told me that the ATM cash machines in Beziers dispense over €15 million during the one week period of the Beziers Feria. 

After some decline in the fortunes of the town during the 1960s and 1970s, the population of Beziers is once again increasing and it now stands at around 75,000.

Serious money is also being invested into Beziers - both from the government and private investors. Great efforts have been made to smarten up the old Mansion houses in the town and the whole of the central square has been redeveloped - complete with an enormous Ferris wheel (Le grand roue). Property Investors are also looking to capitalise on the growth that this investment will bring and the town has become one of the hottest property spots in the South of France. Long term, Beziers has ambitions to rival its larger neighbour - the dynamic city of Montpellier. Beziers is certainly well placed to do so. Beziers is less crowded than Montpellier and it has plenty of old apartment buildings crying out for redevelopment. Also, the area in between the town centre and train station has been earmarked as a 'hipster village' to attract start-ups and new technology incubators. 

Beziers is also perfectly situated in the heart of a regional road, rail and air network. It has a TGV station, an international airport and it is served by two Autoroutes (A75 and A9). The local government is keen to develop the business potential of this transport network by creating a massive distribution hub to the east of the town. Beziers has an excellent hospital (I can personally vouch for that!) and it now has a great range of shops - not only in the centre of town, but also in the Polygone - one of the prettiest shopping centres I have ever seen. Beziers also has some good restaurants like the Le Petit Pierre and the Michelin starred L'Octopus restaurant. Beziers is a sports mad town. The rugby supporters are especially passionate and the Stade de la Méditerranée is a beautiful rugby stadium. Unfortunately, the rugby team is not as good as its followers and stadium require. Beziers football team has recently won promotion to the 2nd division in France.
