Located to the southwest of Montpellier, Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone boasts 9 kilometres of preserved beach, devoid of any constructions.
You can reach it via a footbridge straddling the Rhône Canal at Sète.
On foot, by bicycle or aboard the Petit Train (May to September), a path will lead you to the beach, but not just there.
In a lush green setting in the middle of the peninsula, Maguelone Cathedral is a unique place where history and tradition intermingle.
This Romanesque fortress-church, formerly a bishop’s palace, hosted popes and bishops during the Middle Ages.
The town has a number of well-reputed vineyards offering a range of consistently award-winning wines and muscats.
