Saint Thibéry - a village with ancient origins

The village of St Thibéry, which is located in the central south of France in the Hérault department of Languedoc-Roussillon, can trace its origins back to Carolingian times, with evidence of a monastery from this period. The old part of the village, set at the lower level, has buildings dating from the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, giving a wonderful variety of styles and telling a story all of their own, while the higher setting on the hilltop offers a complete change of style, with modern luxury villas.

Mediterranean landscapes

St Thibéry is surrounded by the typical landscapes of the Mediterranean, with vineyards and the aromatic wild scrubland locally known as "garrigue".

History and culture

It's always good to know a little about the past of a place where you are considering buying a property, and there is a rich and interesting past to discover here in St Thibéry. You can still see the remains of a Roman bridge, a mediaeval bridge still exists, there's the old abbey church and, perhaps the most famous of all St Thibéry's sights, the amazing basalt lava formation known as the "organ pipes".

Festivals, markets and concerts

The village and its environs have access to many cultural events during the year too, especially in the summer months when you will find many festivals taking place in the locality, along with night markets, arts and craft fairs, concerts and other events. St Thibéry is close to many other historical sites too, so if history and culture are your thing you have found the perfect place!

Of sunshine and the vine

Like many towns and villages of the Hérault, St Thibéry's character is very much connected to the vine and the production of wines. The stony soils of the Mediterranean hillsides and the strong sunshine of the Hérault's southern climate help to create excellent, powerful red wines, and lighter but equally tasty rosés, making this one of France's most prolific wine producing regions. Vineyards are a common sight here, and can provide not just pretty views, but also a fascinating insight into the ebb and flow of Languedocian life. The seasons dictate the work to be done in the vineyards, the vines flourish, produce, and are cut back to stumps as winter arrives.

Shops and services

St Thibéry offers quite a lot in terms of shops and services, especially considering its size. Most everyday requirements can be met within the boundaries of the village, and there are the usual French essential shops such as boulangeries, boucheries, green grocers, a couple of friendly bars and a supermarket just out of town, about five minutes drive away. Of course, there will be times you need to access a larger town, but with Pezenas and Agde just minutes away you should find this no problem!

Close to the Mediterranean Sea

It only takes about fifteen minutes to reach the warm, blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea from St Thibéry, so it really is a place where you can experience the best of both worlds. You can enjoy the lively, bustling touristy atmosphere of the coastal towns such as Cap d'Agde, then escape back to the tranquillity and tradition of St Thibéry at the end of the day.

Places to visit

There are many other places worth seeing in the locality too, with Montpellier offering a lively city experience, Béziers and Carcassonne providing a chance to discover the tragic Cathar history that shaped the region, and the Bassin de Thau showing you a unique natural environment with a slightly Greek ambience.

How to get there

The nearest airports are those of Montpellier, Toulouse, Carcassonne and Perpignan. Montpellier is served by easyjet and Ryanair; Toulouse by British Airways, easyJet, bmi, Jet2 and flybe; Carcassonne by Ryanair; and Perpignan by Ryanair, bmibaby and flybe. Rail travel is also possible, as you can take the Eurostar from England to Paris, then change to a TGV and travel with speed and in style to Montpellier or Toulouse. For those travelling by road, you should follow the A9 Languedocienne auto route and then take the Agde turn-off. You will find the village of St Thibéry on the D18.

Property prices and availability in and around Saint Thibéry

The area around Saint Thibéry is not the cheapest in France, but for Mediterranean property prices it looks pretty good when compared with places such as Cannes, Bandol and Nice. It's a little less expensive than Agde too, so it pays to look inland if you are on a budget... you can still easily get to the beach! If it's an old style property that you are after, look in the lower part of St Thibéry, where there are some beautiful old stone village houses, but if your tastes run more to an easy to care for modern villa, there are a good number of these higher up the hill.
