Destination guide

You're shore to adore this green coastal town

There's so much shore to explore with La Grande-Motte vacation rentals. The town boasts 7 miles of colorful Mediterranean coastline in the south of France, plus hundreds of acres of sprawling wetlands and "etangs" (lagoons) that'll make your nature-lovin' side go wild. The pyramid-shaped hotels and buildings are mostly white with splashes of color, giving this coast a cool retro look. And the landscape architecture is tres joli too. Architect Jean Balladur designed public green spaces, squares and gardens, which is why La Grande-Motte is sometimes called the Garden City.

Things to do

This cozy coastal town has a huge range of attractions

"Seas" the day and head out to scenic Sunset Beach, with sugar-soft sand and fabulous waterfront dining options. Or check out the sharks and seals at Seaquarium. Casino Grande Motte is a safe bet for a fun night of gambling, and then you can enjoy some French-style seafood while you watch a lively show at Cabaret Equestre Des Dunes dinner theater. Even if you're not traveling with kids, the tree-climbing park Ponant Aventure is a great place to hang, dangle, jump or climb. And Zoo Montpellier, about 15 miles away, is a huge animal park with an Amazonian green zone.


Wanna be outdoors more? La Grande-Motte is just the spot

No coastal trip is complete without watersports and beaches, and La Grande-Motte vacation rentals has all of these. If you harbor a love for boats, check out the adjacent marina. There are weekly farmers' markets all year round, and some superb spas and beachfront restaurants. If you're all about tee-time, take a swing at Golf la Grande-Motte. Alternatively, you can swing a racket at 1 of the many courts in the city's tennis club. This city's a haven for biking and walking: you'll love using the shaded pedestrian paths surrounded by lush foliage.


Every side of the street is sunny in La Grande Motte

The sea water temperature is refreshing, peaking in the mid 70s in August and September. And with endless sunny skies and summer highs in the 80s, it's parfait weather pour la plage. Many travelers come here in summer to enjoy the outdoor fun, so if you like vacationing in the hottest spot, that's the time to book your La Grande-Motte vacation rental. The spring scene is a little more chill, and you might see some showers in October and November. Winter temperatures rarely dip below 40 in December and January, but those sea breezes can make it feel chillier.

Natural features

Turn over a new leaf in this gorgeous garden city

If the wide beaches of La Grande-Motte aren't enough for you—but trust us, they will be—the city is peppered with green public spaces that just make the place. A landscape architect designed these green squares, gardens, and parks that "speak to both the heart and soul." And after visiting here, you'll be inclined to agree that these gardens are a work of heart indeed. The city's flanked by the Mediterranean coast on 1 side and a large lagoon on the other. This lagoon, Etang de l'Or, is a prime rest stop for migrating birds, so grab those binocs for some bird-watching delights.
