Beautiful architecture amongst the winding streets. Artisan shops and many cultural events during summer - concerts and festivals etc. Four supermarkets and many antique shops.

Cap d'Agde (25 minutes) has further beaches and water sports, boat trips, beautiful harbour, golf, casino, fashionable shopping, nightclubs, waterfront restaurants and the very chic in-crowd of holiday-makers from Paris.
