South France Campsites in Hérault
Camping holidays in the Hérault by the sea
A camping holiday in the Hérault offers all the pleasures of swimming and sunbathing on a 100km-long stretch of Mediterranean coastline in places like Sérignan, Vias, Cap d'Agde and Marseillan which boast some of the most famous beaches in France. Away from the seaside resorts, it also means a chance to explore the Canal du Midi, the ancient fishing ports of the Etang de Thau and the unspoilt villages of Sète, Bouzigues and Pézenas, set amid oyster beds and awash with brightly coloured fishing boats.
Move inland and the Hérault has a different experience in store for you. Here you can enjoy the heady scents of the garrigue landscape of the Pic Saint Loup in the southern Cévennes and sample the fine local wines.
