  The local tourist offices in Lasalle and St Hippoolyte du Fort can give you a wealth of information
    on the various castles, museums and wineries that you can visit during your stay here.

  The area is steeped in local history and tradition, concerning the former silk industry,
    the ever continuing olive industry (mill can be visited 20 minutes from here) the chestnut
    industry and its products can be bought and tasted here.

  There is a market every morning of the week in the local surrounding villages. The markets in
    Lasalle 5 minutes drive Monday and St Hippolyte 10 minutes Tuesday and Thursday. One of the
    busiest and most bustling is Anduze market which is 15 minutes drive away, or Ganges
    half an hour away or Uzes an hours drive away.

  Anduze is a lively bustling little town, with great places for a swim. You can visit the bamboosarie,
    the many ancient traditional potteries and the Cevennnes steam train.
    It’s also a great place to have lunch or go out for an evening meal.

  Visiting Uzes is a must as 15 minutes further on is the magnificent Pont du Gard – the two
    together make a wonderful day out, all including perhaps Avignon.

  The famous towns of Avignon, Arles, Orange can also be visited in a day trip from here as can the
    wonderful Carmarge district, with towns such as St Maries de la Mer. Visiting the ancient walled
    town of Aigues Mortes is fascinating and can be combined with the beach.

  Slightly further a field is the Cathar district and the mysterious town of Rennes-Les-Châteaux with
    connections to the Holy Grail and also closer by is the Knights Templar town of St Guillhem le
    Désert and the "grotte des Demoiselles".

  There are also many local ruined and restored local castles to walk to or drive to from here.
    We have views to the Medieval castle "château Castellas" from our terrace. There are also many
    ancient stone circles and meniths that can been seen in the area.

  A visit to the latest modern motor way bridge the highest bridge in the world "Le viaduc
    de Millau" designed by Norman Foster makes a great day out taking in the mediaeval town of
    Pezenas with its great antiques market.

  Not forgetting of course ancient roman town of Nimes and the lively University town of
    Montpellier.
