New this year: fly direct from Southampton to Béziers in the south of France.
If you live in Hampshire, check out flybe flights to France. Southampton is the UK´s number one gateway to our cross Channel neighbour, with 14 destinations to choose from, and as of this year, another charming town has been added to the list. Béziers, just inland from the Mediterranean coast, offers fabulous beach resorts, such as Valras Plage, Marseillan Plage and Serignan Plage, which attract French families who prefer the laid back atmosphere to the glitz of the Riviera. And if you’re into skinny dipping, the area is home to one of the world´s largest nudist colonies!
But for those who like to keep their clothes on, there’s plenty of café hopping to be done in the port of CapD’Agde, where you can sample the local seafood too. Béziers itself is a historic town with an old market square and attractive buildings and is a gateway to the Canal du Midi, on which you can navigate around the region’s spectacular countryside at a leisurely pace.
And with frequent trains from London to Southampton Airport Parkway Station (just a one minute walk from the Terminal building), it’s still a quick and easy way to get to the south of France from the UK capital. Check out www.flybe.com or call 0871 700 2000 for further details.
