There are a large number of activities such as swimming, diving, sailing, hill walking horse riding, tennis, golf, jet ski, fishing, quad bikes, archery, cycling, go karting wine tasting and many others, available locally.
The area also caters well for cultural activities such as music and art festivals, historic buildings and towns and the annual Feria in Beziers. The towns of Agde and Sete host public water jousting competitions throughout the summer which are a colourful and exciting spectacle. We have our own website which gives detailed information on local area, attractions and activities please email for link.
Places of interest: The villa has a visitor book with information on local activities, places of interest etc. We recommend a visit to the small lakeside town of Marseillan, just a few minutes drive, to Sete a charming fishing port, fifteen minutes, to Mountpellier, a majestic town, forty minutes, and to Beziers with its impressive leafy 'Alles Paul Riquet', twenty five minutes. Carcassonne is worth a visit, and we love St Guilhem le Desert. Historical interest in Aigues Mortes, Beaucaire, Lodeve, Pezenas, Sommieres, Uzes & Nimes. The impressive Viaduc de Millau (approx 60 miles) is a large cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the River Tarn near Millau & is well worth a visit for all engineering enthusiasts. Designed by French bridge engineer Michel Virlogeux and British architects, Foster and Partners, it is the tallest vehicular bridge in the world, with one mast's summit at 343 metres — slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and only 38 m shorter than the Empire State Building.
