Thezan is a nice town in the south of France. It has a pizzeria which does really good food, and a bar / cafe which has cool, refreshing drinks and snacks for a hot day. We came for the start of the Summer holidays, and there was a heat wave so it was really hot for most of the time. Nearby, there are the Cathar Castles which were there to defend them because the Crusaders did not like their religion. Also, you can take a trip to Carcassonne which is an amazing town in huge walls to stop people invading. It has resturants, cafes, icecream shops and gift shops to make your trip better. Closer to Thezan than Carcassonne, there is an abbey (Fontfroide Abbey) which is very kid-friendly. You can explore almost all the rooms, plus take some trails of the nearby area! The next door town, Cabrerisse, has a swimming place which is really relaxing to go in. If you want, you can go to Ribaute and swim there.
