The Languedoc region is incredibly rich, offering an amazing diversity of landscapes and an incredible wide range of possible activities. Hérépian is ideally located right on the edge of the beautiful "Haut Languedoc" National Park.
This natural park is an area entirely dedicated to nature conservation since its creation in 1973. The fauna and flora grow there freely, to the delight of lovers of landscape and wild animals. The park includes the Monts de Lacaune, Caroux and Espinouse, Sidobre and the north face of Montagne Noire. Gorges, rivers and medieval villages are scattered in its immense spaces.
Enjoy, walking, swimming, kayaking, hiking, canoyning and sampling fresh local produce in magical and stunning settings such as a simple river-side tavern or an old spinning mill rehabilitated as a bistro-restaurant.
In the direction of Montpellier, there is a dramatic change of scenery as you pass through the red earth and rocks around the intriguing Lake Salagou.
Closer to the Mediterranean, small country roads will take you through endless vineyards leading to the beautiful town of the French writer Molière : Pézénas.
This center is a jewel of beautifully restored historic buildings and monuments, perfect for people who love wandering narrow streets filled with small craft and designer shops and bustling cafes and restaurants.
Between Pézénas and the coast, and in a contrasting style, you'll find the magnificent Canal du Midi, ideal for a relaxed boat or bike ride.
