The charming town of Beziers sits atop a lofty hill to the east of the Orb River. From almost any point in the town, the striking Gothic Cathédrale St-Nazaire can be viewed. Beziers is just 10 km from the Mediterranean in the south of France, and it's renowned for its wine and bullfights. A car hire from Auto Europe is the ideal way to see this lovely town and to explore the Mediterranean coastline.
Mid August is Beziers most festive and busiest time of year, when the people of this town celebrate Côté Feria. This 4 day holiday draws crowds of over a million people annually who come to imbibe the Languedoc region's fine wines and to cheer on the matadors during the bullfights. The area's treasured vineyards lie to the west and north of town. The D909 is the perfect route to leisurely coast along in your car hire and to admire the sweeping views of this countryside.
Stroll across the Pont Vieux, a 12th century stone bridge, to capture some of the town's best panoramas along the Orb River with the monumental cathedral on the hill in the background. Sip a glass of chardonnay from one of the cafés that line Allées Paul Riquet, or take a relaxing afternoon cruise down the Canal du Midi. The canal dates back to the 17th century and merges into the Garonne River; further west the Garonne flows into the Etang de Thau River and then to another canal. This masterfully designed system of interlinking canals and rivers eventually empties into the Atlantic.
