The following route will take you to the best sites Languedoc has to offer (Minerve, the Cathar fortresses of Peyrepetuse and Queribus, and Carcassonne) while doing quality miles on quiet roads often favored by Tour de France organizers.

  • Day 1 : Arrival in Sète Arrive in Sète at the time of your choice.
    Please note that Sète is located half-way between Toulouse and Marseille, two major international airports and is well serviced from both cities by train. After checking into your hotel, feel free to spend the rest of the day visiting this picturesque town also known as the “Venice of Languedoc.” Overnight Sète Hotel *** HB

    Day 2 :Sète – Agde/Cap d’Agde (approx. 35 km/22 miles)
    Your itinerary will take you on a beach road all the way to Cap d’Agde. Sitting on a geological fault, Agde has been built with black volcanic rock, making this town so singular and so different from its neighbouring towns. There, be sure not to miss the old quarter and its cathedral. A few pedal strokes further, and you’ll be in the village of Cap d’Agde where you’ll overnight. Hotel *** HB

    Day 3 : Cap d’Agde – Béziers (approx. 30km/19 miles)
    The canal will show you the way. With few lunch options along the way, you can opt to picnic along the canal watching the intricate choreography between the barge traffic and the canal’s lock system. We’ve kept today’s mileage low allowing you to arrive early in Béziers. With more than 6,500 years of history, Béziers is one of the oldest towns on the Mediterranean ring and offers many sites of interest including its 15th century Cathedral dedicated to Saint-Nazaire. Overnight Hotel ** HB

    Day 4 : Béziers – Narbonne (approx. 50 km/31 miles)
    Your ride will take you over the river Orb. Further on, the “oppidum of Enserune,” is a testimony to the importance of this region as a crossroad–as shown by the number of pre-roman artefacts from all corners of the Mediterranean ring that have been found there. Further on, Capestang and its imposing Gothic church is worth a stop. Don’t think you have to see it all. Because it’s your tour you’ll decide which suggested attractions to explore or pass. Cycling through vineyards, you will soon reach Narbonne, your final destination. Overnight Hotel *** HB

    Day 5 : Narbonne – Homps (approx. 45 km/28 miles)
    If you haven’t had a chance to visit Narbonne the day before, be sure to do so before hopping on your bike. This place of importance on the route to Spain since Roman times offers many sites of interest, including its medieval cathedral and Archbishop Palace (Palais des Archeveques). The first part of your trip will be done cycling along the Canal de la Robine, a canal that runs perpendicular to the Canal du Midi and links Narbonne to the Mediterranean Sea, then it’s on to the Canal du Midi following quiet roads all the way to the small village of Homps where you’ll overnight.

    Day 6 : Homps – Carcassonne (approx. 50 km/31 miles)

Before getting there, you’ll ride along the canal through picturesque villages that offer many lunch options. You can Cycling along the Canal du Midi From Sete to Carcassonne
