Beziers Hotels

Dusty, sun-baked, and famed for its bullfighting feria, Beziers can feel more Spanish than French – no surprise, since it’s much closer to Barcelona than Paris. It does have the familiar markings of a French town, with its boulangeries and pavement cafés, but its true character is distinctly Occitan, with a long, turbulent history that’s not easily forgotten. In the 13th century, Beziers, along with its many inhabitants, was completely destroyed by crusaders. Modern-day Beziers is the phoenix from the ashes.

Things to see

With its square towers and dominating hilltop position, Beziers Cathedral looks more like a storybook castle, with the canal acting as a vast moat. In fact, it stands on the site of the city’s former castle, which was razed to the ground by the crusaders in 1209 – of the bloodiest massacres in France’s history. Amazingly, rebuilding started just a few years after the town was devastated, and today, the cathedral looks as though it has always been there. It’s well worth the trek up to explore the history of this haunting place. Nearby, in the Place de la Revolution, the city’s Musee des Beaux-Arts is a must for art-lovers; it contains priceless works by the likes of Rodin, Degas, and Delacroix. Much of it is the former private collection of Jean Moulin, the great French Resistance hero. Across town, the bullfighting arenas explode into life every August, with the colourful feria.

Hotels in Beziers

Ranging from contemporary, familiar-brand hotels to cute boutiques, Beziers hotels generally offer good discount prices for very comfortable stays. The more upmarket hotels offer spacious, stylish rooms, with extras like room service and free newspapers to enjoy. Onsite restaurants provide relaxed dining options. The cheap hotels in Beziers offer basic but decent hotel rooms, many of them individually designed. Nearly all of them provide free WiFi and air conditioning. There are some self-catering villa hotels, which are great for families, with fully equipped kitchenettes and living areas. Be aware that during feria, prices rise and rooms get booked up very quickly.

Where to stay

Historic central Beziers provides the majority of the hotels, and is a very convenient place to stay, amongst a lively local scene of neighbourhood shops and cafes. You can walk to most of the major sights, including the cathedral and the museums, and despite the somewhat labyrinthine nature of the streets, the canal and cathedral make it easy to orient yourself. Several budget hotels are available out on the eastern edge of Beziers, and this is a good option if you’re coming for a football match at the stadium, located here, or you want easy access to the motorway.

How to get to Beziers

Beziers has its own international airport, located just 14 kilometres southeast of the city centre.

Shuttle buses also run frequently. Alternatively, you can fly to Montpellier-Mediterranée, the main international airport in the region, which is served by a much greater choice of flights.
