    Label

    Jeannette (a VT member) says I speak too much about wine. Never mind, I give you the address to visit if you want to taste and to buy some wines of the area : Chateau la Peyrade. They are less known than the Bordeaux or the Bourgogne. So, they are cheaper but good also.
    My preferite : Faugere (red), Muscat de Frontignan (sweet white).

    Pezenas : homeland of Molière

    by GUYON Written May 11, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Moli��re was here

    Everywhere in Pezenas, you will find the memory of French comedies writter : Jean-Baptiste POQUELIN, known as MOLIERE.

    He was not born here but he stayed some years there acting with his colleagues for the Prince de Conti.

    The sign on the picture reminds his stay in the inn located in that building.

    Look at my Montpellier Page in general France for the music, dance and theater festivals with free street perfomances

    And don't miss to sit down on a terrasse an enjoy simply the unsophisticated french street life of a mediterranean town. Become a 'street observer'

    If you're an American who speaks very little French, at least make an attempt to speak the native language. In my experience, as long as you make an effort, those people that can speak English will know you're struggling and help you out if they can. Always say Merci!!

    Always try to speak the language, the attempt is appreciated and usually greeted with an English reponse. Also, be prepared to be stared at. It's really common to stare at people here, so try to get used to it!

    The people are friendly here. The architecture and culture has the atmosphere of Roman places.
    On the picture is a palace built in a Greek and Roman style.

    Petits pat��s de Pezenas

    LES PETITS PATES DE PEZENAS. A curious dish imported by an Englishman who liked the Indian cuisine. A small crust is filled in sweet mutton. One eats that hot as entree or dessert.

    Herault is the country of goat cheese. If you are American, be prepared to a great surprise. The taste is surprising. You can buy them at the farm : follow the signs : Fromages à la ferme.
