These are the 10 best Pezenas villas to rent in France for summer 2020 holidays. If you have not been to Pezenas before, then you are in for a real treat. I am often asked by customers to recommend places to stay in South France for family holidays. In my opinion there are 5 great locations to stay: Uzes, Sommieres, Collioure, Marseillan and Pezenas. I maybe biased because it is my local town, but Pezenas is without doubt the perfect holiday destination in South of France - beautiful old buildings, great restaurants and beaches close-by. Pezenas is widely regarded as the most stunning town in the South of France, with lovely old stone mansion houses and vineyards enveloping the town in all directions.
The historic French town of Pezenas, situated between Montpellier and Beziers, is without doubt the most beautiful town in Languedoc region. Pezenas rose to prominence when it was chosen as the seat of the Languedoc parliament in 1456. In the late 17th century Pezenas became the summer home of the Prince de Conti, who brought with him his entourage of playwrights and artists - including the then undiscovered writer Molière. Pezenas really trades on its link to Molière and everywhere you go you will see references to this celebrated French playwright, widely regarded as France's Shakespeare.
The best part of Pezenas is the old town. Once the refuge of a small Jewish community, the narrow streets have been brilliantly preserved. You will still find small artisans working away and small pop-up restaurants tucked away in courtyards and alleys. Pezenas is also a real festival town. There is always something going on - whether it be an antiques fair (the town is famous for its Antique shops, called Brocantes) or a film festival or a theatre festival. The major festival event though is undoubtedly the Le Poulain festival, where a mock horse is paraded through the town's streets, followed by much noise and drinking.
During the summer months there is great food and wine festival on the main street of Pezenas every Friday night. There are over 30 local wine producers present and an array of food stalls. A band usually plays long into the night and all the surrounding shops stay open until midnight. Then there is a quick turnaround for the next day, when the famous Pezenas market takes over the whole of the town and where you can buy anything from fresh Oysters to local fruit and veg, organic soap and freshly baked bread. This really is the best time to visit Pezenas.
