Un site exceptionnel pour les amoureux des grands espaces
Un séjour trop court, sur un site exceptionnel pour les amoureux des grands espaces dans un cadre sauvage, mais doté de tout le confort moderne.
Accueil plaisant et discret. 3 co-locations indépendante bien séparées avec une magnifique piscine naturelle plein sud pour partager une vue panoramique sur les Causses.
Seul bémol: un chemin d'accès difficile selon les véhicules car guère carrossable.
Saint Privat is a small community consisting of three small villages, located in the department of Hérault in Languedoc-Roussillon. There are no shops or restaurants. The distance to the nearest bakery and the post office is about 15-20 minutes. Other stores, supermarkets, restaurants u. S. W. See Lodève (about 25-30 minutes by car) or in Clermont l'Hérault (about 35 minutes by car). Saint Privat lies on the border between the coastal plain to the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains of limestone plateaux (Les Causses) which merge further north in the Cevennes and the Massif Central.
The Hérault is a varied piece of earth. There are Mediterranean coast with long sandy beaches and marinas, lakes such as Lake Salagou (12 km) for swimming, fishing, surfing, sailing. Rivers like Hérault and Tarn Heric or canoeing, hills, mountains and limestone plateaux. There are attractions Greek and Roman origin and from the Templier-time, the time of the great religious wars. Finally, there are cities like Montpellier, Nîmes, Bezier or Pézenas; each with different background and appearance. Especially in the summer is the cultural variety of concerts, theater, summer festivals etc. large and varied.
For the tourists, the colorful weekly markets offer, in every village on another day, the limestone caves for a tour, resorts with their mineral springs, abbeys, monasteries, museums, riding stables, golf courses and amusement parks. And of course, an infinite number of restaurants.
Among the villages most beautiful Saint Guilhem-le-Desert, with its brick Devil's Bridge over the Hérault, located on the centuries-old pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostella.
What's to be done? The hiking possibilities are ideal: the international GR 74 runs from Spain to Scandinavia, runs on 1 km distance from the house. There is a dense network of designated trails. The big lake 'Salagou', situated in hills of red earth, typical of the area, is 12 km of distance. Its shores are still natural and you can see the fish silvery jumping out of the water. Then there are rivers like the Hérault, Héric or Tarn, with its impressive waterfalls and soaring vertical rock walls and old masonry arch bridges, where you can canoe or simply on the shore picnicking. And of course there is the Mediterranean coast with beach and marinas as Agde and Sète.
Surely you will discover the friendly hills that abwechslen to their flanks often look with steep (limestone) mountains such as if a giant boulders - sometimes to house size - simply tossed and not cleaned up. Their subterranean counterpart are the limestone caves whose visit in itself is an experience.
Perhaps the most beautiful and angemessendsten the Esprit Area it is, without a specific goal to drive around, comfortably and without much traffic, through picturesque villages, from view to view, from restaurant to cafe, depending on your taste and mood.
