Camping Les Cigales is an ideal destination for a relaxing holiday by the Mediterranean Sea, with family or friends. Several activities and entertainment await you in our establishment (petanque, billiards, children’s playground, aquatic area with outdoor swimming pool and heated paddling pool, etc.), but also in the surroundings. The campsite is only 800 metres from the beach, which makes it easy to enjoy all kinds of water activities such as stand-up paddle or windsurfing.
Staying at the camping Les Cigales in Vias Plage is also a great opportunity to explore other destinations that the Mediterranean coast is famous for. These include Marseillan, a small town a quarter of an hour’s drive from Vias.
Marseillan is one of the most popular seaside destinations in Languedoc-Roussillon. The city seduces indeed by the beauty of its natural spaces, but also for the jewels which make the wealth of its historical and cultural heritage.
Visitors fall in love with the resort’s turquoise beaches. These stretches of fine sand, which form a 6 km long coastline, are ideal for all kinds of activities, from leisurely walks to swimming, sailing, stand-up paddling, boat trips and scuba diving.
The coastline is also well worth a visit for its many attractions and restaurants, as well as the various evening events that are organised there.
Take advantage of your visit to Marseillan to explore its historical centre. This will be an opportunity for you to meet the inhabitants and appreciate what makes the richness of the local heritage, such as the old houses lining the streets of the town centre or the town’s port.
The crossing of the Canal du Midi, which allows you to enjoy a panoramic view of the port of Marseillan, tennis, go-karting or even bike rides are also among the activities popular with visitors to this town in the Hérault.
The Roman vestiges, which trace the founding of the city by the former ruling empire, are among the must-sees in Marseillan. During your visit, you will also have the opportunity to admire the port de plaisance which symbolises the modernity of the town. Marseillan is a dynamic town, turned towards modernity. For all that, it never loses its authenticity of yesteryear.
In addition to visiting architectural gems and antique vestiges, you can also practice the water sport of your choice, or simply take advantage of the fine sandy beach to walk, relax…
Walk on the beach of Honor at dusk
Indulge in a twilight walk along the Mediterranean coastline. In this case, the walk starts at the town’s harbour and leads you to the Avenue de la Méditerranée. Walking along this avenue allows you to admire the beauty of the coast and breathe in some fresh air.
Whether you come to Marseillan as a family, a couple or with friends, this activity is simply a must. The ride is a beautiful experience, a moment of relaxation and sharing that you will enjoy with your loved ones. The getaway also allows you to admire various breathtaking landscapes.
After a day full of activities, sometimes the best thing to do is simply to take the time to relax and admire a beautiful setting, in this case the town’s marina. While the harbour itself is a gem for the local heritage, the scenery is most sublime for the boats – barges, sailboats, catamarans, rowboats – that park there or leave.
Marseillan has many cycle paths, some of which allow you to criss-cross the banks of the Etang de Thau. It is possible to hire a bike on site, for a day or half day. One of the routes regularly used by cyclotourists runs along the right bank of the pond, passing through Mèze and Sète and then returning via the south bank. The route is especially attractive because it allows you to enjoy exceptional views, on the sea as well as on the pink flamingos that populate the pond in particular.
The Maison Noilly Prat welcomes you to the banks of the Etang de Thau. It has specialised since 1913 in the manufacturing of vermouth, a flavoured wine whose reputation extends far beyond the borders of the Occitan region.
