In Lézignan (about 30 minutes by car) there are lots of shops and supermarkets and every Wednesday morning there is a lively local market.
The river Orbieu, 84 km long and winding through canyons, villages and vineyards, offers great swimming spots, for example right down from the house in St. Pierre des Champs, or in Lagrasse (with survey during high season) or in Ribaute, even more interesting because of the roman bridge, the cascades and the rocks.
