Here you have a selection of places to eat and other amenities. There is a picturesque golf course 10 minutes away at Montescot, horse riding, and opportunities to taste local wine. The closest winery to us is 10 minutes from us, Chateau de L'ou, a well respected vigneron, which is open for wine tastings.
