Destination guide

There's more to Herault than Montpellier

This sun-soaked department in southern France has been an important destination since the Romans came and built their aqueducts and hilltop castles. Montpellier lies at the heart of the region and teems with historic architecture. Outside the city lie pretty fishing villages, which pepper the sultry coastline, as do oyster farms, which produce magnificent shellfish. If you nab a Herault vacation rental near the Canal du Midi, you can follow it all the way along to the lively town of Sete and some fine sandy beaches, or head inland to hike and bike past vineyards, where you can stop for tastings.

Things to do

Amble the old streets of Herault

Though there's much to see in Herault, culture vultures should schedule in at least a day or 2 to explore Montpellier. A good starting point is the Place de la Comedie where the imposing opera house is best seen from one of the charming, classically French, cafes. If you dive into the 13th-century Cathedrale St Pierre, you'll be treated to gorgeous stained-glass windows and a spectacular wooden altar. Art lovers shouldn't miss the Musee Fabre, which houses an important collection of work, while families with kids may be best suited to Montpellier Zoo, where the animals are colorful and the tickets are free.

Activities

Typical French activities await in Herault

Activities near your Herault vacation rental are typically French. You could pick from a sunny slow-paced afternoon cruising along the Canal du Midi or a hike and bike along its lush green banks, a perfect day with a hamper of French goodies. Canoeing is one of the country's most celebrated outdoor pursuits and the waterways of Herault don't disappoint. If you're a foodie, make a beeline for the nearby oyster beds to gorge on these bivalves before diving into the Roquebrun wine cellar for a tasting. If all that sounds a little tame, hop aboard one of the microlights to see the sun-soaked French countryside from above.

Weather

Avoid the crowds and visit Herault in the cooler seasons

Herault's southern position means it receives more sunny days than most of France and even in winter the temperature rarely drops below the 50s. Unsurprisingly, summer sees the biggest influx of families, who descend on the sun-baked shores. The temperature can sky-rocket in July and August, so try nabbing an Herault vacation rental during spring or fall, when the climate is sunny, bright and warm but the hordes of travelers have yet to arrive, or have left after their summer break. The beaches and waters are still just as appealing, and the evenings are still balmy enough to eat al fresco.

Natural features

Herault is one of France's top wildlife spots

If you solely stay in the cities, you'll miss out on a whole host of fauna which roam the southern French landscape. If nature and wildlife spotting is your bag, try to score a Herault vacation rental out in the countryside, where gentle walks will bring you face-to-face with all manner of species. It's not uncommon to catch a glimpse of long-horned sheep and beavers, nor is the sound of wild boar rustling around in the forests unusual. Playful otters splash around in the waterways and by night you'll hear owls hooting from the treetops.
