Aumes is about 25 minutes from the sea. The nearest beaches are around Meze, Marseillan Plage and Cap d’Agde. A really good beach for the whole family is at Rochelongue. Ideal for younger children, there is a gradual slope into the water, and is protected by a breakwater. There are rock pools, and access is easy by car.

You will appreciate a region which has remained true to its traditions,  and  is  able to provide a  wide range of interests  and recreation for all ages.

Aumes,  situated in the countryside is terrific for family walks away from everything. Relaxing, taking in the village atmosphere. Sit and relax, something  you might not do too much of at the moment!

 In the village you will be able to use the tennis courts, boules pitch, 5-a-side football pitch, childrens play area, table tennis. All are on a “first come first served” basis, you could probably join others if you wanted to.

All  surrounding villages have a market day, you will find details of them in the house book.

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 .
