The dinosaur museum at Mèze hosts many remains of dinosaurs and eggs found in the region but if that's going back a bit too far in history for you why not head up the nearby A 75 to the templar village of La Couvertoirade.

Or why not hire a boat at Agde and head-off down the Canal du Midi for an afternoon. For children there's funparks and amusements of Cap d'Agde.
If this all a little too calm for you head off to the rapids in the gorges north of the historical and picturesque St Guilhem le Desert (16km).Or hire your watersports equipement at the Lac du Salagou ( 19km). Mountain bikes are also available to hire to explore the strange copper-coloured landscape that surrounds the lake.
The historical market towns of Clermont L'herault ( 7km) and Pezenas are close-by (18km) the pottery village of St Jean de Fos now boasts a great museum and hosts a great pottery market every August.
Late summer and early autumn the village is animated by the harvesting of the grapes.The heady odours waft over to the gîte and the village streets are stained red with the overspill of the convoy to the cave .Down at the cave you can witness the initial crushing of the grapes in enormous vats.The village is set in the midst of vineyards and the autumn foliage on the vines is a breathtaking mixture of red, yellow and orange.The village has many beautiful hilltop walks with panoramic views of the L'Hérault countryside.
On the first two sundays of March the village hosts a magnificent carnaval with enormous, colourful floats pulled by the winegrower's tractors.

Together with our four children, aged 9-16, we spent three weeks as guests of pat and Fintan in the charming village of Le pouget.
The accomodation was excellant, the pool proved to be wonderful and Le pouget itself was an ideal location from which to explore the region.
Pat and Fintan were excellant hosts, warm and welcoming and available whenever needed for advice or directions in relation to sites, activities and shopping;
We would love to return and are recommending the venue to our family and friends.
We retired in France to be near our daughter and grand-daughter.
Michelle, our daughter , heard about this house on the 'grapevine'! It was hiding away in an abandoned overgrown garden.We've been very busy renovating it and putting in the pool. Never a dull moment!
We don't regret moving here for a minute.
We love welcoming our guests, going to Montpellier or the market in Mèze by the sea, on Sunday mornihgs. We often.pop over the border to Spain and we never get bored following our daughter's ineteresting musical career in the region. You can't beat sitting out on the terrace on a summer's evening listening to the crickets and unusual birdsong.. Life is good!
We chose Le Pouget , like our daughter, for it's great situation. It's in the centre of all the best that the region has to offer: coastlibe, mountains, gorges, lakes, city - everything is just a short hop away but meanwhile there are wonderful wlaks surrounding the village. The village has plenty of amenties, so if you want a lazy break you really don't have to move your car all holiday!
We fell in love with la Bergerie as soon as the owner swung the gates open and we looked up the long,treelined driveway. A secret garden in the centre of the village! It was love at first sight!
A traditional wine producing village, Le Pouget is located in the heart of the tourist region of L'Herault.
The gite is a 5 min stroll from the restaurant, bar, bakers, chemist and doctors and the spiralling medieval centre that hosts a festival in the summer. A mecca for walkers and birdwatchers, the village has a children's farm and a family- run riding school.
The market towns of Pezenas (18km) and Clermont l'Herault (7km) are nearby.
For watersports the Lac du Salagou (19km) or the gorges of St Guilhem Le Desert (16km) offer equipment and courses and the varied coastline is within easy reach : the fishing town of Mèze (24km) the bustling port of Sète (30km) or the tourist centre of Cap d'Agde (45km).
The cosmopolitan city, Montpellier (30km) has something to offer all ages.Why not park and take the tram in?
For music and art lovers,surrounding villages ( St Guilhem, St Jean de Fos, Pezenas) host events throughout the year.
Will you have enough time to fit it all in ?!
