An overview of Boutique Gîte 5
This recently renovated gîte is centrally located in the beautiful Hérault, southern France. Located in a quaint French village, surrounded by vineyards, not far from the Mediterranean coast, this hidden gem awaits your arrival
The studio and the gîte are situated in the middle of a beautiful walking- and cycling area. From the village there are several clearly marked hiking trails with beautiful views of nature. There are many special bicycle paths in the immediate vicinity, the so-called ‘Voie Verte’.
On the old railroad line between St. Chinian and Cessenon-sur-Orb there is such a Voie Verte. This is perfectly passable for regular touring bikes and mountain bikes.
Regional Nature Park Haut-Languedoc lies largely in the Hérault department and is 145,000 hectares in size. The mountain range lies between the high-lying central part and the low-lying Mediterranean part of France. The park has a diverse landscape consisting of lakes, gorges, valleys, mountain peaks and small villages. There are also several waterfalls in the park, such as the one at Colombières-sur-Orb.
A relatively unknown gorge is Gorges d’Héric. The gorge, carved out by the river flowing through it, offers opportunities for swimming, walking or just relaxing. If you want more altitude, you should go to Monts de l’Espinouse. The mountain, located in the middle of the park, is 1124 meters high and gives you a beautiful view over the park.
Hérault is a department in sunny, southern France on the Mediterranean Sea. The department is named after the river of the same name that flows through the department.
