A bit more cycling around Béziers

 

Our location offers the cyclist or visitor to Béziers options of tours to meet most peoples' requirements.

 

There are kilometers of paths through the vineyards to explore. You can bike from village to village or cycle to the sea through the vineyards and via the Canal Du Midi.

 

Experience the famous Canal Du Midi, located about 800 meters from our shop.  The canal was classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.  The most stunning features of this 240 Km long canal are within minutes riding of Béziers:  the famous Nine Locks of Fonserannes (Les Neuf Ecluses de Fonserannes), the beautiful aqueduct which allows the canal to cross the river Orb, and the awe inspiring Tunnel de Malpas, which allows the canal to pass through a mountain.  Tunnel de Malpas is a meeting point of many converging axis of travel.  The railroad passes underneath the canal at this point, while the old Roman road, the Voie Domitienne, passes over the canal at exactly the same point.

 

Right above the Tunnel de Malpas you can find one of the most important Gaulish villages in the South of France: L'Oppidum d'Ensérune.  This settlement was occupied without interruption between the 6th Century BC and the 1st Century AD.  The last settlers of this hilltop were the Romans.  As mentioned earlier, the Voie Domitienne passes below this hilltop, on its way from Italy to Spain.

 

Close to the Nine Locks of Fonserannes is a not well known curiosity of Béziers; a display of animated puppets.  This display is called the Creche Animee de Fonseranes.  The display was started in 1937 and has been built by two Christian monks.  The display is only open on Christian holidays like Christmas.

 

Another exciting option is to rent a bike, ride down to the train station (400 meters from our shop), hop on a train heading to Agde (25 Km),  Sète (50 Km), Carcassonne (100 Km), or anywhere, and cycle back to Béziers along the Canal Du Midi.  The great thing about the trains here in France is that they accept bicycles for free.  Bicycles usually go onto the last wagon of the train.  It is recommended to check availability before hand if the train you are interested in will take bicycles, since not 100 percent of trains can take bicycles.  One can check online or simply ask inside the train station.
