Beziers is a  very typical  town of the midi, far less cosmopolitan than it's larger neighbour, Montpellier but full of life and charm. The narrow winding streets are filled with interesting shops and  resteraunts. It's historic cathedral  was the scene of the horrific massacre of the Cathars in the thirteenth century.The shady esplanade is home to the weekly flower market every Friday morning and the many festivities that take place during the summer months. The Feria in August brings together bull fighting afficianados from throughout the region and the festivities continue throughout the night.

Within fifteen minutes you will find wide choice of sandy beaches and small fishing ports where you can enjoy fresh oysters and other sea food. The famous Canal du Midi passes close to Beziers, the 'neuf-ecluses' (nine locks) are well worth a visit and the tow paths alongside are perfect for a leisurely bike ride.
