The village is a good base for conventional biking and mountainbike tours. Around  Lake Salagou this is the ideal mode of transport because of the many paths across the red rocks of this geologicallly rich area. Eight different circuits with different degrees of difficulty render possible the exploration of the shores and the most energetic will enjoy this gorgeous panorama from the surrounding plateaus.

360° Panorama of  Lake Salagou


Hikers get their moneys worth in light of the geological and geographical variety of the area. There are a few excellent  guidebooks  that lead to little known valleys, canyons, mountains and plains.

Windsurfing, Swimming and Sailing:

Lake Salagou is  well known to  the windsurfer. The almost deserted shores of this protected lake beg to be discovered, and always look inviting as a base for swimming with water temperatures often at 28° in summer. With motor boats banned, sailing is a pleasure, and you can hire boats from near the sailing school at the Eastern end of the lake.The shores, accessible to the public, offer a choice of long sandy beaches, small protected bays or rocky coves.


Anglers will find the biggest carp in Europe. The Salagou waters have a very rich fish population.Thanks to numerous waterplants some unusual species can develop here at a depth of 4-5 meters.There are predatory fish, whiting shoals, carp, zander, pike and perch.Very good catches are possible !

Bird watching

Vast forests and original,unspoilt nature make for a true paradise for birds. Come and enjoy the singing of the nightingale and the hooting of the owl in the otherwise undisturbed silence of the night.

Watching Stars :

The clear skies of the Languedocian hills are well known and villages, free of light contamination, can still be found here.

Enjoying wine:

Pézènes borders on the famous wine growing area of Faugères, with its schist based soils.This means that there are many small producers that you can visit and learn how the wine is produced and sample their range of reds,whites and rosés These are within easy reach of Pézenes which therefore provides an ideal base for winetasting tours.
