Exceptional sites

Few nations can claim a tourism potential equal to that of France.

The route of Saint James of Compostela, St-Guilhem-le-Désert, the Pont du Diable, the Gorges of the Hérault and the Clamouse Cave are exceptional sites and the crown jewels in the development of tourism in the Hérault valley.

Village streets, village trips, winemaking villages, pottery villages, castellas – all reflect the uniqueness of a land carved by both Man and the river Hérault.
