For general supplies, we go to Canet – less than 5 minutes’ drive away – for the little Casino supermarket and, on Sundays, the fruit & veg. man. For bigger shops, there is a wide choice of Intermarche and Carrefour supermarkets within a 20 minute drive – we often use the Intermarche at St Marcel, about 8 minutes away.

Narbonne food halls

Narbonne food halls

Lézignan-Corbières is a nearby small town, only 15 minutes’ drive away, with a traditional French market open on Wednesday mornings. Many local villages have regular markets and we keep a list at the Château to help you plan your shopping trips.

Narbonne, a 20 minute drive away, is a larger, very attractive town that has superb market halls that are open every morning except Sundays – well worth a visit.

There is a great selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and traditional French markets at other towns – go to the What to do in The Languedoc section for more details.
