Try the local products and cuisine: The locals say they have the best olive oil in the world, garlic, and all kinds of fresh vegetables. The local lamb is excellent and so is the lapin, wild boar, hares, and storks! The local wines are good to excellent both red, white and ros.

Local produce and shopping: Most shopping is done on markets local and there is one almost everyday in some neighbouring village. Over the summertime there is a market in Esparron. The markets sell all kind of food directly from the producer , local artefacts and clothes.

Now the water is a great attraction for all kinds of non motorised water sports (electric outboards only). A 6.40 meter sailing boat can be included in the rent free of charge but a permit is necessary.
