The Domaine de Beaumont is in the region of Agde, known as the Agathois, at the mouth of the River Herault and the Canal du Midi, in the heart of Languedoc Roussillon where we celebrate the sun, the beach and the Mediterranean art of living.
The town of Agde, an ancient city founded in the 6th century B.C., is a summer destination in the Languedoc that mustn’t be missed.
Discover some of the many reasons to spend your holidays in the Languedoc: 300 sunshine days a year, fine sandy beaches, the sea and the Mediterranean lifestyle, activities for all ages and centuries of history.
The yacht harbour at the Cap d’Agde comes alive in the summer season with its multitude of restaurants and shops. The Mont Saint Loup towers above the fine sandy beaches of the headland.
You’ll also discover the atmosphere of the Grau d’Agde, the fishing village with its many bars and restaurants floating on the River Herault.
For everything cultural, the town that’s known as “the black pearl of the Mediterranean” because of its basalt monuments offers you festivals and entertainments all year long: river jousting, concerts and much more.
Its heritage and history are shown off to advantage in the town’s museums: the Ephebe, devoted to underwater archaeology, and the Agathois which presents art and folk tradition: costumes, ethnology, paintings and ceramics.
There’s plenty to please sporting enthusiasts too, and especially the International golf course at the Cap d’Agde, one of the few courses to offer you 27 holes on a course overlooking the Mediterranean.
You can also go rambling and mountain-biking in unspoilt natural surroundings beside the sea and in the garrigue, and especially in the pinewoods of the Tamarissière and the protected natural area of the Verdisses.
