Its population is about 2,000 people. It is famous for its wine and sun; and Magalas may be small but its charms should not be underestimated. Built in a defensive circle known as a ‘circulade village’ (such villages are quite a feature of this region due to its turbulent history) and perched high on a hilltop, Magalas looks down on a corner of South West France that is rich in history and which makes a terrific base for exploring this fascinating region. The town itself has no shortage of things to see and do and, despite its size, has a commercial centre with first class shopping and a vibrant social life, and several restaurants that come highly recommended! Locals flock to one of the many bars scattered all over the centre and thanks to the opening of the Picasso museum more visitors are choosing Magalas as a holiday destination. It’s a happening place!
Magalas is a gem of a village set in the middle of the largest wine-producing region in France and has its own cave co-operative. Surrounded as it is by many hectares of vineyards, there can be no doubt that wine is a major part of the economy of the town. Wine tasting is available in local caves. There are two art galleries in Magalas, both worthy of a visit, and there is a fascinating bell ringing museum to see as well. In the summer months there are a variety of festivals to enjoy, including a beautiful procession of flower decked floats through the town. The lively cities of Montpellier and Béziers are within easy reach, as are the beaches of the Mediterranean and the fairy tale city of Carcassonne, and Barcelona is only a three hour drive away!
The tranquillity and charm of Magalas make it a delightful place to live or stay and its proximity to many other places of interest are a real bonus. Renting private Malaga apartment rentals or villa rentals is a great way to holiday in Magalas and you can also choose from a large selection of all inclusive holiday villas and chalet rentals, plus an exciting range of family friendly accommodations.
