Montpellier — 3 nights

Bring the kids along to Palais des Papes and Promenade a Cheval La Marisma. Step out of the city life by going to Le Parc Ornithologique de Pont de Gau and Plage Napoleon. Venture out of the city with trips to Moulin CastelaS (in Les Baux de Provence) and Plage de Piemanson (in Salin de Giraud).
