If you're looking for property for sale in Hérault that's town-based, we'd recommend Montpellier and Béziers - but only their very centres. Béziers is finally coming up in the world - with new flights to the city's airport from Bristol and Stansted, lots of road investment to connect the city more easily to the A9 and A75 motorways, and a big new 'Rive Gauche' property development near Béziers station. And its centre is quite lovely - with cobbled streets and nice shops.
Similarly, Montpellier is hugely popular to buy property for sale in Hérault, Languedoc. The 'Ecusson' centre of the city is gorgeous, and property prices here are rising nicely. Lattes is also popular, close to the coast.

The latter option is the best for those of you looking to buy property for sale in Hérault, Languedoc, as an investment.

It's close to the beaches at Agde, and on the edge of beautiful wine-making country. Clermont-l'Hérault is also quite a nice town. Though not as pretty as Pézenas, it also has a good weekly market, and is very close to beautiful Lake Salagou.
For those of you looking for houses or apartments for sale along the coast of Hérault, then we'd recommend Agde, Sète, Marseillan, Bouzigues, Mèze, Serignan and Portiragnes.
