The area is rich in lovely typical southern villages. The old town centres, the markets, cafes and restaurants make these communities lively and welcoming.
The beautiful tree-lined Canal du Midi which links the Atlantic with the Mediterranean has miles of flat walks along the shady tow paths and is only 200m away.
At Vias Plage, there is a funfair open during July and August.
Cap d'Agde (25 minutes) has beaches and water sports, boat trips, beautiful harbour, golf, casino, fashionable shopping, nightclubs, waterfront restaurants, several children's theme parks and a fabulous water park (Aqualand).
Beziers, the nearest city, is 10 minutes drive away and has perhaps the best flower market in the whole of the south on Fridays in the beautiful tree-lined main boulevard.
Carcassonne castle is well worth a visit, especially on jousting days!
Monasteries and castles abound in the area and there are plenty of vineyards where you can taste some of the best wines in France.
