About the neighborhood
There is horse-riding, tennis, boules and a children's playground in nearby villages. Cycles can be rented at the nearby village of Ginestas. Bize has a natural swimming pool in the river which also has a lifeguard during the summer months. Most watersports and swimming from the beaches can be enjoyed at the coastal resorts of Narbonne-Plage, Saint Pierre la Mer and Gruissan. Narbonne has a large leisure centre with a swimming pool, ice rink and ten-pin bowling.

There is an abundance of attractions in this area - it's hard to know where to start. But a visit to this area would not be complete without a trip to the medieval city of Carcassonne, the lively and attractive town of Narbonne, the Canal du Midi, Minerve, the beach resorts of Gruissan and Narbonne-Plage, the vineyards...
