Pezenas was the favorite town we saw on our trip in the Languedoc region. It was the seat of the local government in Languedoc during the 16th and 17th centuries, resulting in beautiful architecture, stone staircases and wrought iron balconies. Today is it an artist town, filled with artisans and their creatives products. The Hotel de Lacoste (not a hotel but an old government building – Hotel in France can mean offices too) has the prettiest of the stone staircases and is worth a visit. The swallows that make their home in the ceilings of these staircases are a particularly charming treat to watch.
