The Languedoc-Roussillon region
This is very much a wine region and festivals are plentiful. The beaches stretch from Montpellier right down to the Spanish border and there are lots of watersports and good golf courses. Beyond Pézénas you can venture into the hills and as far as the Cathar castles- wild and beautifully scenic. There are also famous gorges and caves to visit and plenty of historic and beautiful villages and towns with wonderful markets.
5-10 minutes walk takes you to the centre of Marseillan town and via the sea lake known as the Etang de Thau. You come at first to the lovely port with its many restaurants and opposite it , the Noilly Prat base which is very popular with most people! The town has a market day on Tuesdays and is vibrant. There are organised tours of the historic part on Wednesday mornings. It is also very handy for access to motorways and to the bigger towns of Agde and Béziers and is popular with cyclists.
