Vallée de l'Hérault

The vallée de l’Hérault, much more than a valley!

A rocky world, white-water, radiant light, magnificent, protected landscapes.

A territory rich in history, studded with medieval cities, with Castellas and great abbeys on the Path to Santiago de Compostela where each village reveals a singular identity and invites you to discover it.


Here, between the fragrant scrub-land and famous vineyards, man has found his place: vine grower or potter, it perpetuates age-old traditions and skills.

It’s an authentic land, colourful and animated, where the origins of many festivities can be traced back to the middle-ages evoking the most wonderful of its epic heroes and totem animals.

In Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, at the Devil’s Bridge, along the ravines of the Hérault, in the shade of its 28 towers or on its markets stalls… allow the vallée de l’Hérault to fill you with wonder, come into a valley of legends!
