This seems to be a town that fits our criteria and it would be great to hear from residents who have made it their home. ??

Hello,
We, Canadian couple, a retired university professor and a semi-retired university professor, have found a lovely 17th cen. house in the centre of Pezenas, and have lived here off and on for the last 4 years. We try to be here 6 months, fall and spring. It is a great old village, much tourist activity in the heat of the summer though much quieter village life by fall. We have a car which makes a tremendous difference, so we are able to get easily to Monpellier or other larger towns like Beziers for shopping, cultural opportunities, etc. We have found wonderfully helpful people to look after our place in our absence ( plants, etc) and a group of locals, some expats, who are willing to do handy-man work, give advice, lend tools, etc. The locals are friendly, helpful and kind. Everything for daily life is available for daily life including a large supermarket within walking distance just outside of the old town. Saturday market is famous.

Hi, I'm an American planning on moving to Occitanie in spring 2023. Canadien couple, thank you for your excellent post about Pezanas. I think it might be the right place for me. I'm a woman of a certain vintage, single. I plan to start a pet sitting, dog walking biz-vet tech level medical skills. It already has a name and domain, "A Bientot Pets.:. Do you think the area could support such a business? Can you recommend a reputable realtor in the area? I'd love to meet the two of you once I get there. Thanks, Diana R.

Hello Diana,
We have a wonderful pair of friends in Pezenas, he being a real-estate agent who knows the entire area and is incredibly helpful, generous and reliable. I can't recommend him any more seriously. If you have any questions about practical things, insurance, banking, etc, he will be very helpful. His wife is a delightful French school teacher, both of them have excellent English.
As for your idea for dog sitting/walking, there is an abundance of dogs in Pezenas (!) but I would suggest you contact Serge through this agency and make a contact. He probably would have suggestions about this too!

We, Jesse and Rapti, return in mid-February through mid-June. Please feel free to contact us any time, directly with email.
All the very best,
J
