The small seaside resort of La Grande-Motte offers endless days in the sun to enjoy one of Southern France’s best holiday getaways. In the south of France lies the summer resort of La Grande-Motte. The resort and port was designed by Jean Balladur and constructed in the 1960s and 70s with the sole purpose of creating a seaside resort. Because of its some 300 days of sunshine and excellent La Grande-Motte holiday rentals it is no surprise that it is an extremely popular all-year-round holiday destination welcoming thousands of tourists a year. The winter period sees more seasoned visitors with many retreating to their second home.

La Grande-Motte’s beaches are world-class and during the summer months they are usually packed. The advantage to the crowds is the abundance of traveling vendors and parked vans touting refreshments and snacks. Even though most of the resort’s beaches are quite busy during much of the year, at the end of the afternoon the stretch of beach between the Grande Motte and Carnon is surprisingly quiet where you can escape the hustle and bustle and just enjoy the sounds of the Mediterranean. After a long day on the beach spending a relaxing night away from the La Grande-Motte holiday lettings, enjoying sumptuous local cuisine is the best way to round off the day. If a little more adventure is what you are after, the Casino de La Grande Motte, the only casino in the resort offers exciting evenings filled with the Roulette, Blackjack, Slots and the usual gambler’s fare and a nightclub for the more energetic.
