The old village of Sérignan is located in the South of Béziers on the Biterrois plain, is bordered to the North by the Orb river and to the South by the Mediterranean coast. This is a quaint little spot where you can take a stroll, lose yourself and do some shopping. In the heart of the village, you will meet squares and narrow streets typical of the south where, whilst winding your way down a back street, you will suddenly find yourself face to face with a magnificent renaissance door or statues of the village patron saint. You can also visit the Notre Dame de Grâce Church and its impressive 30 m tower which houses a keep above the town.

THE GRANDE MAIRE
This is an intact and particularly beautiful place, within striking distance of the Domaine de Beauséjour campsite. The site of the Grande Maïre forms part of the ecological European Natura 200 network. With 424Ha (1,050 acres) of preserved and protected countryside, typical of natural environments found on the low-lying coastal areas of the Languedoc, the area is home to extremely rare plant and animal species. Comprised of lagoons, sand and salt flats, the area is rich in fresh water streams flowing from the Grande Maïre to join the estuary and silt rivers.
Lovers of freedom will find a naturist beach just 500 meters from the campsite.
