Every Tuesday morning there is a Provençale market in the village center and the large municipal pool is open in the main summer months. There is also a large pretty park with a small lake and tennis courts and pétanque pitches. In summer the park hosts various markets, fairs and musical events.
A short walk up the hill from La Begude brings you to the beautiful medieval perched village of Châteauneuf-de-Mazenc. With its narrow cobbled streets and ancient buildings, its certainly worth the walk to explore. The view from the ramparts reaches as far as the Cévennes. From the gardens of Le Mas Des Abeilles you can enjoy the best view of Châteauneuf-de-Mazenc.
