Montarnaud - a mediaeval village lying under the southern sun

The mediaeval village of Montarnaud lies under a scorching southern sun in the Hérault department in the centre south of France. The village, whose history dates back to the construction of its castle in the 11th century, is a picturesque place whose heritage can still be found today in the form of its chateau, its church and its original streets and houses.

Thriving community with shops and a restaurant

Around the village today you can find, amid the history, a thriving modern community. There are some small shops (a baker's and a general store) and even better, a lovely family restaurant. Larger facilities, including everything you could possibly want or need, can be easily accessed in the capital city of Montpellier, which lies just fourteen kilometres from Montarnaud.

Montarnaud is in a wonderful location

Rising above the village is the 11th century chateau, around whose feet the village steadily grew into the thriving community it is today. Many of the buildings are mediaeval, but the later additions, such as the 19th century church, evidence the changes it has been through during its development. The pale stone buildings, bleached by years of Mediterranean sun, make a perfect foil for the green of the surrounding countryside. Here there are glossy, ordered rows of vines that make the famous Languedoc wines, and aromatic scrubland filled with wild herbs and sandy rock that is known locally as the garrigue.

Paradise on earth for wine lovers

The area around Montarnaud is a wonderful place to explore, no matter what your particular interest or pleasure. For wine lovers, it is a paradise on earth, with wine domains and caves everywhere offering guided tours or tastings and even wine courses. Meanwhile the even simpler pleasure of enjoying settling down under the summer sun to enjoy a glass or two in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside is always on the menu.

Try white water rafting or go sailing

If your idea of fun is to get a little more active, be prepared to be busy, as there is hardly a sport that the Languedoc doesn't make available in this area. Adventure sports like white water rafting, climbing and kayaking can be found in the mountainous areas and gorges, while the coast offers sea sports for all. In between the Med and the mountains you can play golf on lovely courses, sail on lakes, fish in rivers, go pony trekking, cycling or walking through the vineyards and in the hills, or simply enjoy a peaceful game of petanque in your own garden.

Explore stunning Carcassonne

The region is positively bursting with history and heritage, and places not to miss include Montpellier, of course, the vibrant capital of the Languedoc; stunning Carcassonne, the fairy tale city; and the Cathar city of Béziers. There are hundreds of lesser known villages and towns to see too, all offering their own unique charms and points of interest.

How to get there

Flying to the region gives you the choice of several airports, all served by budget airlines to keep travel costs to a minimum. Carcassonne, Béziers and Montpellier are all within reach, with Montpellier being the nearest, and being served by Ryanair, easyJet and Bmi Baby. The TGV services to these cities is another option should rail travel suit you better. The A750 auto route brings you close to the village, which lies on the D111.
