For buying and selling property in Frontignan

Frontignan - a seaside wine town

The town of Frontignan, which is found near the Mediterranean Sea in the Hérault department of Languedoc-Roussillon in southern France, does double duty as a seaside resort and wine town. Frontignan has a worldwide reputation for its superb Muscat aperitif wines, and the vineyards that produce these are evident all around the town's outskirts.

Scenic landscape with garrigue and the Rhone-Sète Canal

Another feature of the inland landscape here is the "garrigue", the wild, Mediterranean scrubland that is redolent with wild lavender and other herbs. The inland part of the town lies in a scenic position beside the Rhone-Sète Canal, which runs between the inland main town and the seaside area. Here the canal boats moor up whilst waiting for the road bridge to open so that they can pass through, which happens twice daily. Frontignan is a lively place in the summer, made all the more colourful by the canal, which carries a number of leisure craft.

About town

Frontignan is split into two sectors, the main town and the seaside resort, the latter being known as Frontignan Plage. The Etang de Thau, an inland salt lake which is a haven for wildlife and a rich source of shellfish, is found to the west of Frontignan, while the Mediterranean Sea and the beach of Frontignan Plage lie to the south.

Amenities on offer and places to visit

Frontignan has plenty of shops, services, bars and restaurants, so anyone making a base in the town will lack for nothing. Sights to take in around the town include the charming old town centre, complete with the remains of a 14th century fortress, the 12th century Church of St Paul, the Penitent's Chapel, two chateaux and the Maison Poulation, dating from the early 20th century. Also worth seeing is the La Peyrade Bridge.

Enjoy the Blue Flag beaches of Frontignan Plage

Down at the seaside, in Frontignan Plage, the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea await you, as does the fascinating Etang de Thau. In Frontignan Plage you will find good beaches, clean seas and spotless sand and pebble beaches that have consistently earned the accolade of the Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety. Summers are fun here, with good facilities for holiday makers, while winter is calmer but brings its own pleasures as the tourists return home and the natural beauty of the area shines through.

Out and about

There is plenty to see and do both in and near Frontignan. The canal is home to fun and games at certain times of year, with traditional water jousting tournaments being among the most colourful! The museum is another interesting feature of the town, with a fascinating history of wine to discover as well as exhibitions of local art, information about the history and ecology of the region and more. Wine tasting and tours are available locally, this being a great way to appreciate the Languedoc's favourite product!

Explore the Camargue and mediaeval Aigues Mortes

Getting out and about from a base in Frontignan offers many exciting possibilities. Set on the edge of the unique region known as the Camargue, you can see the beautiful white horses running free, or being used in amazing displays of horsemanship to round up wild bulls and drive them through the streets. Visit the mediaeval walled town of Aigues Mortes, or travel inland to the wild and beautiful countryside ripe with history and tales of the Cathar knights. Sports fans will find almost any activity they can dream up available near Frontignan, with golf, horse-riding, scuba diving, rock climbing and sailing to name but a few.
