Transport from Montpellier Airport to Vias Plage

by fleming61

My sons are arriving in Montpellier on 08 August approximately 16.00. Can you let me know if the train station is at the airport if not how do they get there, also they need to be able to get to Vias or if not Beziers if easier where we can collect them.

Many thanks


Re: Transport from Montpellier Airport to Vias Plage

Note: I have no personal knowledge of this area, but this is what the official websites say...maybe someone else will stop by top give their "2 cents" worth. ;-)

According to the airport's website, there is no train at the airport ( There is a shuttle bus run by Herault Transport, whose website is (French only, I think).

The airport website says that the airport bus is route #120 (on the Herault website, go down to Montpellier and look for #120).

The bus runs from the airport to Place de l'Europe. I can't find this location on, but from the map at the Herault website (, it appears to be about where Avenue du President Pierre Mendez France hits the river (near where the Esplanade de l'Europe can be found on

If this is where the bus stops, then the train station is about 1.7 kilometers (about a mile) to the west on foot (or a short taxi ride or, presumably, a bus ride, although I don't know which bus it would be). There are trains leaving for Vias at 17:49 and 18:15, and the trip takes about 42 minutes. See .

NOTE: the train at 18:15 appears to be the last train for the day to Vias, so if they are late getting to the airport or out of the airport, then they will want to just take the taxi from the airport to the train station and eat the extra cost. Also note that I checked the schedule for tomorrow - you may want to retest the schedule if your sons are traveling on the weekend as the local trains may change schedules then.

I have used the bus from the airport into the city and the trains in the region.

The 120 bus goes to Place de Europe from where the Ligne 1 tram will take your sons to Montpellier station, the Gare St Roch. The bus costs 5,50 incuding the tram add-on called 'option TAM'.

I have the summer 2009 bus timetable which shows Sunday buses into town at 1600 and then 1725. It takes about 15 minutes. The buses are run in accordance with the flight arrivals, so there should be one at a suitable time - if the flight is on time of course. Otherwise it's a taxi costing about 20 - 25 Euros.

Train times may be different in August so check again nearer the time but the current timetable shows Sunday evening trains thus:

Montpellier to Beziers at 1715, 1815 and 1848, taking 45 - 50 minutes for the journey. There are later trains until the last one at 2253.

The only train on Sunday evening from Montpellier to Vias is the 1815, arriving at 1858.

Current timetable here

I hope that helps.

Good film for your camera is aivable here. Getting your film developped and printed is an option too. Bring your tent or caravan at a camping nearby. See accomodationtips for campings nearby.

The "Saline du Midi" Camelle Salt Pile

by alnoor

One "must see activity" at Gruissant is the "Salt Pile". The salt-works are protected against heavy seas by a 1,5 km-long sea wall. They cover a total surface area of 392 ha between the sea and the island of St Martin.
The exploitation of this natural resource is based on an agricultural technique that consists of concentrating and harvesting the salt in the salt marshes.
The salt "Fleur de sel" from the Audois region is really worth discovering.
There is a Museum of the Salt wich is worth discovering, and which gives us an overview of this natural resource...
A must....also a shop around the salt..we bought the "Fleur de Sel" as well as "Sel aux piments de Gruissan" which is salt with hot peppers. Excellent!

We had a short overnight stop in Montpellier on our way to Barcelona by train (from London). Unfortunately, due to a grève générale in France the day we travelled, we did not arrive until quite late in the evening (10pm), so we did not get as much time in this charming city as we had planned.

Fortunately, we had booked a room at a very central hotel (New Hotel du Midi) right by the Place de la Comédie - the main central square on the edge of the old town. It was easy to find a place to eat even at 11pm on a Thursday evening (we chose a well-established crepe restaurant), after which we had a very pleasant stroll through the old town. The narrow alleyways are particularly well-lit, so it feels safe and is fun to explore.

The following day we had enough time before our afternoon train to Barcelona to have a good look around the city centre (particularly the old town). This is a really enjoyable place just to wander around in, but the highlight has to be the impressive aqueduct that comes into the north western edge of the city.

We have already decided that we need to return to Montpellier!

Department of Herault


"Between Mountains and Sea"

The Pyrénées on the South, the Cevennes (mountains) onthe North West, the Provence on the North East and the Sea (Mediterranea) on the East, the "département" of Hérault is a perfect location for the persons who like to go swimming in the sea, the rivers, the lakes, the pools, sunbathing, walk in the mountains, visit ancient typical villages, watch the wild nature, go in natural caves, see monuments and ancient churchs, visit museums, eat typical food, taste wine, and spend few money.

The other tourists can go elsewhere.

Less known than Provence and the Riviera, the Hérault has a lot of attractions to offer to the visitors for a reasonable budget.
