Pezenas is the perfect location to be based in for a long stay in the South of France. Pezenas is small enough to feel familiar, but also large enough to provide all the facilities that you will need. The town has a good range of shops, it has excellent transport connections, it is close to the Mediterranean beaches and it is full of life and activities all year around.

The climate in Pezenas is perfect. It enjoys long hot summers and mild winters. During July and August the daytime temperature regularly reaches 32-34°C (90F) and there is very rarely any rain. My favourite months are september to October and April to May. There are beautiful blue skies and the daytime temperature stays around a comfortable 24-26°C (75F). In the winter months of November through to February, the average nightime temperature can drop as low as 5-7°C (and you will occasionally get a cold snap for a week or so as the temperatures drop to near Zero), but for most of the time during the day you can still walk around in a light jumper or a T shirt and enjoy the sunshine and the clear blue skies. During the winter the average temperature in the day reaches a respectable 13-16°C (55F-60F).

History of Pezenas France

pezenas france

Pezenas was once the capital of Languedoc for a brief period (in the late 16th Century to mid-17th Century).

Its association with the Govenors of Languedoc brought great wealth to the town and many large Mansion houses were built in Pezenas around this time.

It was also the period when the celebrated French playwright, Molière, first visited Pezenas (in 1650) performing to the Prince de Conti.

He returned a number of times to Pezenas and the town is closely associated with him, holding regular productions of his plays during the summer in the open air theatre.

But after this golden period, Pezenas largely stagnated. In the years up to the French Revolution and during the early to mid-19th Century, the population of the town declined. Its fortunes revived a little with the arrival of the railway to the town and the growth of the Languedoc wine industry in the early 1900's.

Fortunately, Pezenas has been spared the ravages of war or the impact of rapid urban development. As a result the town today is very well-preserved, with plenty of 16th-17th Century stone built town houses and a maze of windy streets and alleyways in its centre.
