Destination guide

Spend the Beziers of your life on the Orb River

Just a few miles inland from sandy beaches along the Mediterranean Sea, Beziers is a historic urban hub along the Orb River in France's Occitanie region. Visitors flock to the area for its ancient castles and cathedrals, as well as plenty of museums, parks, and a charming downtown with shops and cafes. The area's known for its wineries, and you'll also find ample opportunities for outdoor recreation of all sorts in the region's parks and waterfront. Beziers vacation rentals will put local landmarks like the Beziers Cathedral and the Musee de Biterrois right on your doorstep.

Things to do

In vineyards veritas – Bezier's wineries and beyond

If you didn't know already, you'll soon discover that Beziers lies amid the vineyards of the Languedoc-Roussillon winemaking region. Visitors can tour many of the local wineries, and a day – or more – of tastings is always a hit with oenophiles. Once you've been properly lubricated, you can check out the Musee des Beaux Arts. Here, you'll find works of art from as far back as the 1400s, housed in a pair of ornate 19th-century buildings. Or you can head to the 13th-century Beziers Cathedral, a gothic building that was once the seat of the local bishopric.


Beziers's rivers, festivals… and water jousting

A popular spot for waterfront activities, the Ord River offers plenty of kayaking, canoeing, and paddleboarding. At the scenic Plateau des Poetes park, you'll find more than 12 acres of gardens dotted with dozens of statues of French poets and authors. If you're visiting during the summertime, you'd do well to take in one of the area's famous water jousting tournaments – it's exactly what it sounds like, and always worth checking out. The city also hosts the Feria de Beziers, a bullfighting festival that draws more than a million visitors every August.


(Mostly) mild months in Mediterranean Beziers

Beziers has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, rainy winters. July is the hottest month, with little rainfall and average highs peaking at 85 degrees. Average temperatures range from 42 to 52 degrees in December and January, and Beziers gets plenty of rainfall between September and May. Thanks to its mild weather, Beziers is a popular destination for both summer visitors, and winter travelers escaping colder climes back home, so you'll find that prices on Beziers vacation rentals stay about the same from one season to the next.

Righteous views in regal, riverside Beziers
