However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together.

THE BEZIERS FERIA
20 minutes from the campsite by car
The Béziers Feria, which is held in August, is the largest summer event in the Languedoc-Roussillon region with almost one million people flocking to it every year.
At the heart of the Feria are the arenas and their celebrated bull fights. And when they are finished, the city centre comes alive with the main festival around its bodegas (bars) and casitas (cafés) with a host of events and a renowned Equestrian Village, to the accompaniment of a multitude of street bands. And until dawn Béziers thrills to the rhythm of Sevillana flamenco dances.
THE CANAL DU MIDI
A trip that goes with the flow

The black pearl and its ramparts
Beaches as far as the eye can see.
discovering the history of the town of Agde and its ramparts. With its Greek origins and turbulent medieval period, Agde offers much of historical interest to explore in the town centre, the oldest part of which dates back to 5 BC. Set off to discover the architecture fashioned out of anthracite-coloured volcanic stone, the narrow back streets and the 16th and 17th century houses and private mansions.
The ramparts. Bearing witness to 2,600 years of history, the foundations of the ramparts in Agde date back to the 6th and 4th centuries BC, which makes them amongst the oldest in France. Almost hidden half way up you can glimpse the ancient 4 wave crest fixed on the ramparts during the wars of religion.
La glacière, the cradle of the town. This district, which was originally surrounded by ramparts, harbours remains from Greek and medieval times. Its name comes from the underground ice house which was used in times gone by to preserve winter ice for the summer and was formerly the district where the town notables lived. Today it still bears the mark of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries.

The Maison Consulaire. This is entirely built of volcanic stone in the Italian Renaissance style, and can be found on the edge of the town, at the crossroads of the lively and commercial streets, rues Jean Roger, Louis Bages and Honoré Mutatet.
It is steeped in history and was built in 1651 and extended in the second half of the 18th century. Today, it is a three storey building with three façades and a distinctive market hall with arcades running through which was used for fairs and markets. Inside a monumental staircase leads to the marriage room (formerly the consul’s room) decorated in 1939 by Spanish artists taking refuge in Agde. It was formerly the Town Hall and currently is home to the Maison du cœur de ville.

A unique and aromatic land
There is grandeur in this Languedoc fashioned by history and its great men, by the light, the wind, and the Mediterranean. Here, you will find ruins of chateaux, cathedrals, rocky promontories and even sea foam juxtaposed against the sky.

A fortified town
Many sites to visit
History of Cathar country
The town of Carcassonne, on the right bank of the Aude River, was awarded World Heritage Classification by UNESCO in 1997. It is the high point for tourists visiting the town with more than 4 million visitors every year including almost 500,000 visits to the Chateau Comtal and its ramparts. It is the second most visited tourist site in France after Mont-Saint-Michel.
This mediaeval collection of buildings is unique in Europe both for its size and its state of preservation. The fortified city is surrounded by two rows of ramparts and has a chateau, the Chateau Comtal and the SaintNazaire Basilica.

The Chateau Comtal
The Chateau Comtal in the fortified city of Carcassonne
Located in the centre of the fortified city of Carcassonne, the Chateau Comtal is a fortress which used to be home to the Viscounts of Carcassonne. Some of its foundations lie over a 1st century Roman domus. It was a site which soon became a place of power. The new Chateau Comtal was built at the beginning of the 12th century and today a part of the tower still remains. It underwent numerous alterations over the centuries in particular in 1229, when, after falling into Royal hands, it became the headquarters of the Seneschal of France. From 1240 to 1250, the outer walls were built as fortifications. This enclosure is made up of a curtain wall, round towers, entrance towers, the barbican and a moat.
The chateau is open to visitors all year round and gives access to the city ramparts. It also houses a Stone Museum and a permanent exhibition on the restoration of the fortified city in the 19th century.
The Saint-Nazaire Basilica is a church of Roman origin dating back to the 11th century. It was originally a simple church blessed and consecrated by Pope Urban II in 1096. There used to be a Carolingian Cathedral on the same site, of which no trace remains today. The crypt also dates back to the time that the new cathedral was built by the Trencavel family, despite its state of deterioration which indicates the contrary. The original windows of the basilica are now in the Saint-Chapelle church in Paris.
