Apart from the river swimming in the village, you can also swim at Roquebrun, Lagrasse or at the beaches of the Mediterranean all 30 to 45 minutes drive.
The Canal du Midi is 10 kms away and is great for cycling and walking as well as boating.
Narbonne's covered market is a must see for food lovers and there are excellent restaurants in many of the villages dotted around.
You are surrounded by vineyards of the renowned Minervois Appellation so there are plenty of tasting opportunities, starting at the village square. The whole area is steeped in history with mediaeval castles, abbeys, churches, villages and cities from the Roman, Cathar and Wars of religion periods. Particular favorites are Minerve (15 kms) and the sculptures at the heptagonal 11th-century church at Rieux.
Even Spain is only a day trip with the autoroute. For a fuller view of what can be found in the area search for Languedoc-France.
