We are in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. Our intention was to hit some wineries in the area. Oops, it's Bastille Day and the wineries are closed. Let's climb Pic St-Loup. It took five of us to climb up between 1.5 to 2.5 hours, but it was well worth it for the view! Spectacular! Magnifique! But afterward? Man! Sure wish... More

This Pic is visible from most of the region and is set within a series of limestone outcrops. We trekked up a well-marked path (mostly part of GR6) from the St Matthieu side and took about 90 minutes to reach the top in 30c temperatures (take water!). We were regularly passed by orienteers. Easy to find, simple parking near to... More

We signed up for a wine tasting tour at the Tourist Information Bureau in Place de la Comedie. It was great! We had our own personal tour guide who was extremely knowledgable about wines. We visited 2 wineries- one small family owned and another bigger more commercial type. The wines were all excellent in my opinion (I'm not a wine... More

Getting there without a car is not impossible, as some say, but it's a bit of a challenge. The bus from Montpellier drops you "in the middle of nowhere", which is about an hour (brisk) walk from Cazevieille, the village at the foot of the mountain. The climb itself is a challenge, but doable, even for a moderately obese person... More

For folks who are reasonably fit, this hike is highly recommended. It took us between an hour and a half and two hours to climb to the top and the same to return to the base of the cliff, but the scenery both on the way and once you reach the top is stunning. Lovely wildflowers in late March -... More

Be sure to take your lunch and bottle of wine to enjoy at the top after a 30 minute walk up a winding road that has been around for 100's of years - with visible grooves in the rock from when things were dragged up to the top. Ruins at the top to wander around make the whole experience unforgettable!

This was a lovely walk up the mountain with a superb view at the end, however definitely not recommended for the unfit or unstable as it involves a lot of climbing and uneven ground.

From Montpellier the direction is the village Cazevieille, on the road it is marked and easy to find. It takes about half an hour to get there. Parking is just at the beginning of the trail. Take your running or hiking shoes and start to wander. It is recommendable to take a water bottle as it can get very hot.... More

The information centre in Montpellier will tell you it is not possible to get there by public transport. This is not entirely true. Bus 115 goes in the required direction and the mountain can be accessed by either St Jean de-Cuculles or St Mathieu de-Treviers villages. The bus driver dropped us on the outskirts of St Mathieu but it was... More

The whole area around Pic St Loup is full of beautiful scenery, interesting little towns, lovely old buildings and vineyards which seem to me to have been the beginning of a revolution in wine production in the Languedoc. A car is necessary but once so equipped one can spend several days exploring, lunching in lovely environments, swimming in the river... More
