There are many fantastic markets most days of the week within a short drive of the property. Uzes, has perhaps the best market in the south of France on a Saturday morning.

Apart from the larger well-known sites in the area there are numerous small totally unspoilt medieval villages within a 15-30 minute drive of Saint Castor. To name just a few: Goudargues - called the Venice of the Gard as it has a pretty little canal running through it. Also has a lovely market on a Wednesday morning. It has several excellent restaurants on the side of the canal. A great spot to have a good meal and watch the world go by. Cornillon - a hilltop village near to Goudargues with spectaular views across the valley and beautiful old stone houses. La Roque Sur Ceze. A "site historique" - a small village clinging to the side of a hill. Beautifully restored and preserved.

There is really good river swimming at many places along the River Ceze within a short drive of Saint Castor. Pebble beaches and clear cool water. There are several places to hire canoes enabling you to explore the wilder, normally inaccessible areas.
There are too many good local wineries to mention on one recommendation. The area is well known for its rose and red wines. Tasting is offered at all wineries and is free of charge, although it is polite if people have spent time explaining things to you to buy a bottle or two. Excellent wineries in really close reach to Saint Castor: Megier, Cadignac, Colmobier, Saint Gervais. Too numerous to mention!
