Just ten mins drive away is Pézenas, a very pretty medieval town with an abundance of shops, cafes and restaurants. The centre is full of buildings dating back to the 16th & 17th centuries. There is also an excellent market on Saturday which provides an ideal opportunity to stock up on the wonderful regional delicacies, fresh salads and vegetables, meats, cheeses, seafood and of course the local wine. Take a stroll through the old town with its unique craft and clothes shops and finally stop at one (or two) of the many bars or bistros in the Place de 14th Juillet.

You are perfectly placed for the Mediterranean; the nearest beaches can be reached in just 20 minutes. Close by is the holiday resort of Cap d'Agde. It has some 14 kms of fine beaches and many attractions for the children like Toonland and the famous Aqualand with its giant flumes, water slides and wave machine as well as a super tots area for the very young.

As well as beaches, there are beautiful lakes, mountains and gorges within one hours drive. The area has large numbers of medieval towns and villages to visit including Pézenas, St Guilhem-le-Desert and the Cite of Carcassonne. Just over hours drive will take you to the heart of Cathar country with its imposing castles and monasteries such as Montsegur and Queribus. Plenty of activities are to be found near to us including golf, horse riding, sailing, fishing and tennis. For the more adventurous the Spanish border can be reached in about 90 minutes and a further hour takes you to Barcelona.
