Canet itself, is a thriving wine village with a Mini Supermarket, Bakers, Butcher, Chemists, Tabac and Bar.

It is 5 minutes from Ventenac on the Canal du Midi which has 2 restaurants as well as a wine cave with a good range of wines.

Narbonne is a short drive away with a choice of large supermarkets, a fantastic indoor market that is open every day from 7am to 2pm even Christmas day, a good selection of bars and restaurants as well as other shopping.

Further Places of Interest / Suggested days out :

Top of the list is the UNESCO World Heritage site of Carcassonne which is just 40 minutes away – Great for a day trip but I feel a bit sorry for those who rent up there putting themselves further away from the Beaches, which you will want to visit far more regularly.

We have a Lake with all facilities nearby, for when the Beaches are too windy. This is at Homps where many of the Canal Boats can be hired from.

Cathar Country has more Castles and Churches than days of your holiday.

The Sigean Game Reserve – The largest outside of Africa at 700 Acres, near Porte-Nouvelle.

Le Abbaye de Fontfroide – Great Restaurant & Classical Music Venue.

The small and idyllic Villages of Minerve and Lagrasse have great charm.

Further afield the Beautiful Town of Pezenas, in the Herault Valley – With it’s Saturday Flower Market and for being the home of French Writer Moliere.

Our personal favourite The Port of Collioure is also close by.
