Caux - a circular wine village

Caux, which is found in the countryside of the Hérault department of Languedoc-Roussillon in central southern France, is a wine village built in the distinctive circular pattern so characteristic of this area. An important wine producing centre, the village is surrounded by the picturesque vineyards which are its economic mainstay, and is within easy reach of the region's lovely, historic towns and cities as well as close to the beaches, salt lagoons and resorts of the Mediterranean Coast.

Life in the village - both peaceful and lively

Caux, whilst remaining a village rather than a town, is a good size. It manages to be at once both peaceful yet lively, which may sound impossible, but anyone spending time in Caux will quickly understand that it is true! The village has a laid back attitude to life, and its peaceful aspect is brought about by this, along with its unspoilt, authentic nature, rural surroundings and historic feel.

Shops and services on offer

However, although some small villages and towns in the rural south of France can feel a little too quiet and cut off from civilisation, this is not the case with Caux. There is a good range of local shops and services, a weekly market (Friday mornings) and various cultural events held here which add a touch of colour and vitality to village life.

Historic sights and monuments to see

Caux also has some interesting historic sights and monuments which draw tourists to the village. The circulade in itself is interesting, calling to mind, as it does, the sometimes violent history of the region, with specific sights of interest including the church (whose 13th century clock tower is classified as an historic monument), a lovely Spanish renaissance window (a remnant of the old castle) and many old houses dating from the 10th century onwards.

Out and about

The Hérault is an area which offers a wonderful variety of things to do and places to see. The historic Cathar city of Béziers is almost on the doorstep, while even nearer is the pretty mediaeval market town of Pezenas, also useful for shopping and dining out. The village is surrounded by vineyards and wine domains, many of which offer tours and tastings to help you not only find the very best of local wines but also to learn the fascinating process by which they are produced.

Explore picturesque villages and lively resorts

The Mediterranean resorts, beaches and fishing villages are all within easy reach of Caux, and you can spend many a day enjoying the very different places that are found along this stretch of coast. The region has lively resort towns such as Cap d'Agde and Le Grand Motte, but also tranquil and picturesque fishing villages set on the shores of the Etangs, or salt lagoons that lie between the Mediterranean Sea and the mainland.

Why not try skiing in winter and sailing in summer?

Not far away too are the mountains that can be seen from the top of the village, with ski resorts accessible in the winter without too much time spent travelling. There are many other sporting activities available near Caux, with golf, swimming, walking, horse-riding, sailing, tennis and more all found locally.

How to get there

There are several airports within reach of Caux which have direct flights to and from the UK. These include Béziers, Montpellier, Carcassonne and Nîmes, with Béziers being the closest airport. All are served by Ryanair, with Montpellier also being served by easyJet. These cities have train stations too, allowing you to make the journey by train if that is your preferred method of transport. If you are driving, which is recommended as many of the places of interest are difficult to access without a car, you can find the village quite close to the D13, which is accessed from the A75 auto route.

Property prices and availability in and around Caux

Although property in some parts of the Hérault, namely the coastal areas, can be expensive, inland it is a different story, with very reasonable prices and some beautiful character properties on the market.

your questions...

1. A person is looking for long-term rental accommodation (added 30/8/13)...

I love Caux and once owned No 1 rue de l'Eveche. I want to return, but not buy. I am looking for an economical long-term, open-ended rental. It can be small as it is just for me and my cats. It could be above a shop, or something like that. I don't mind. I just want to be back in Caux. I am living in Mexico and long to return to Caux! Should anyone be able to help, please get in touch.
