Puisserguier - circles within circles

The village of Puisserguier, which enjoys an idyllic location amid the vineyards of the Hérault department of southern France, is a mediaeval "circulade" village, constructed in concentric circles with the old chateau as a centrepiece. Puisserguier has many of its old fortifications still visible, and you will find a long and interesting history revealed as you explore the ancient streets and buildings. The atmosphere is pure Mediterranean, with surrounding landscapes of vineyards, olive trees and garrigue, one of the best and sunniest climates in the country and all just 20 minutes from the beaches of the Med.

Life in the village

Puisserguier, for all its history and slow southern charm, is a bustling and lively place, with all the necessary shops, services and amenities that modern life dictates. There's even a supermarket, which may not be as picturesque as some of the more traditional shops but which nevertheless is very useful when you need to stock up the cupboards in a hurry!

Enjoy market days and wining and dining

Market days are Tuesdays and Fridays, and shopping in this very French fashion is a pastime which rarely loses its appeal. Puisserguier also offers bars and restaurants for your enjoyment, and in addition you can visit wine caves and an olive oil producer where you can taste the local products, learn something of their production methods and buy the wines and oils to take home afterwards.

Sights and monuments

Whether you decide to begin your discovery of Puisserguier from the outer walls of the village or from the centrepiece of the chateau, there is much to see here and you are bound to enjoy the experience even though you will be going round and round in circles! The chateau is open to visitors at specific times, and information on this can be found at the excellent Tourist Office in the village. The Church of St Paul with its beautiful arches is surely worth a little of your time, as is the Priory of Saint Christopher, set just outside the village in a cool pine forest.

Explore the historic corners of Puisserguier

Simply walking around Puisserguier is a pleasure, and there are lots of historic corners to see as you go. Look out, for example, for the cockle shell symbol that symbolises the pilgrim trail to Santiago de Compostela, because another facet of Puisserguier's history is its one time importance as a passing point for the pilgrims. As you walk you may also spot parts of the old ramparts, water wells with underground passages, a very elegant town hall and many more graceful buildings with a story to tell.

Out and about

The location of Puisserguier makes it an ideal base for enjoying all the best bits of the south of France.

After you have explored the village, the vineyards, the olive oil mill and the immediate countryside, you might decide to head for the beaches and warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, just a 20-minute drive away.

Visit lively resorts and Cathar cities
