The small town of Piégut-Pluviers lies a pleasant 20 min drive from Pensol. It has a wonderful weekly market held on a Wednesday morning, that has been held here since the seventeenth century. This is one of the largest markets in the South West of France and is not to be missed. You will find everything here from artisan foods, arts and crafts, clothes and shoes to household goods right down to livestock. For parking, head into the village until to see the "deviation" sign. Turn right and then first left. It can be very busy in July and August so best to get there early. Stallholders pack up at lunchtime.
It also has a ruined tower which can be climbed for a view over the town.
A visit to Piegut Pluviers can be combined with a stop off for a swim at the Lac Saint Estèphe on the way home, to make a full day trip.
