Bages is a hill top village with views of a lake (Etang) and The Med beyond. Its a beautiful, quiet village with small central square with two bar/restaurants. Les Beaux Arts is great for soaking up the atmosphere with a mid morning coffee or beer and Les Jardins de Bages serves classic Mediterranean dishes.

Less than 10 minutes by the road that follows the Etang, you will come to Pyriac de Mer. Keep your eye out for Flamingos!! This village is larger than Bages. Explore the alleyways full of tiny cottages or the impressive church in the main square. We often take the boardwalks over the disused salt flats now inhabited by Cranes and Flamingos. There are a number of clearly signed paths from 3 to 8Km that take you up to the hills that over look the Etang and The Med.
