Our apartment is a 5 minute walk over the bridge to the train station.
By Road : It is at least a 10 hour drive from the Channel ports, probably more if travelling with a young family, so an overnight stop on the way down is usual. Aim for Clermont Ferrand then on to Agde via the spectacular viaduct over the Tarn gorge - Norman Foster's splendid bridge at Millau. Travelling from Spain or other areas of France aim for the A9 and exit at junction 34.
In the peak summer months, usually from mid-July to the end of August, the population increases with holidaymakers and the roads and parking can be very busy, especially on a Saturday.
Free parking is available on both sides of the river and nearby in the town centre.
However, you do not need a car, we are only 5 minutes walk from the train station, it is a 15 minutes cycle ride to the beach or you can catch one of the regular bus services to the supermarkets or nearby beaches and resorts. We can also arrange a private transfer to and from the local airports or train stations or even to the larger supermarkets.
