Exceptional places

A great enhancement project is being planned by the local district council.
The local council (communauté de communes) of the Vallée de l’Hérault covers 28 towns and villages in the districts of Aniane and Gignac with 25,000 inhabitants.

This area is in a particularly advantageous situation because it is not far from Montpellier and at the crossing of two major roads, the A75 and the A750. This position in the heart of the Hérault department will help it capitalise to the utmost on its human, natural and heritage assets.

Tourism: a driving force in the local economy
We have a very rich heritage and few green tourism areas can boast such a potential as ours. The site of St Guilhem le Désert along with the natural sites of the Grotte de Clamouse and the Gorges of the Hérault are highly attractive tourism assets.
