THINGS TO DO
Very few mediterranean villages offer the choice of two child-friendly sandy beaches, within 5 minutes walking from your home base. For the wilder Mediterranean shore, a 20 minute drive gets you to a long stretch of beach between Marseillan and Sète.
Great for shell seekers and those who love long walks. Fabulous waves too!
FESTIVALS & MUSIC
The Languedoc boasts many music festivals during the summer months. In Mèze, the 'Festival de Thau` attracts top artists and many visitors. It takes place every year in the 3rd
week of July. In the 3rd week of August, an ancient town tradition can be enjoyed, when the Mèzois bring out the town's 'Totem', the Taurus. This effigy made of wood and paper, is paraded through the town's streets and squares and is followed by the town's children, local bands and people in the most astonishing disguises.
For many more festivals in the area, all through the year, click here.
Children will love the choice of activities in the immediate vicinity. Although children will not easlily get bored with the lovely sandy beaches, a visit to the Dinosaur park on the outskirts of Mèze is a must. It is the largest Museum-Park in Europe devoted to dinosaurs, in the middle of an outstanding paleontological site.
