Pezenas,10 minutes from Aumes is probably the most well known market town in the area where most of the houses date from the 17th century. The whole of the old town, which has officially been classified as part of the French National Heritage is original, and it is as it was when Moliere and his theatrical company used to live here. Throughout the 17th century, to be near the governors of the Languedoc province (the Montmorency and Conti families), the aristocracy built impressive private mansions with inner courtyards and gardens, which have retained their charm and elegance from this bygone age.
Pezenas is well situated to satisfy the needs of all its visitors, lying between mountains and sea, beaches are twenty minutes drive away. Often called the Little Versailles, Pezenas has a wide range of arts and crafts, restaurants and places to visit. It is active all year round, so there is always something to see. Each summer there are many theatrical, musical and street theatre events .
