Caves Quarante et Un

Caves Quarante et Un is one of the best wine shops in town. Not only do they have a large wine cellar but also delicacies such as caviar, foie gras and lovely chocolate.


There are several well-known vineyards in the area, including Château Mourgues de Gres. The best place to sample and buy local wine is at the Les Cave du 41 wine shop on 41 rue Emile Jamais. La Vinothèque on 18 rue Jean Reboul is another good wine merchant. As in so many other French towns and cities, the indoor food market (on rue General Perrier), is worth a visit. This street, together with rue des Marchands and pedestrian streets in the Old Town such as rue de l’Aspic and rue de la Madeleine, form the bulk of the shopping areas. The latter has many expensive fashion stores.
