Nearby Meze harbour has a wonderful beach.
Only 6km away, is the medieval town of Pézenas. Here you can explore the winding cobbled streets and watch local craftsmen blowing glass, making jewelry or potting the local brightly coloured Provencal ceramics. After a morning of discovering the arts and crafts gift shops and artists galleries you will be ready to drop into one of Pézenas's many colourful cafes and restaurants either in the old town square or tucked away in the many ancient twisting alleyways. Saturday is market day and Pézenas offers a wealth of local produce, flower stalls, and colourful clothing accompanied by the sounds of jazz or local folk groups.
