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

We took a tour through this area, and it was a one of the highlights of our visit to Montpellier. The mountainous views with all the vineyards are beautiful. We stopped at two wineries that produce appelation wines for this region: Domaine Haut-Lirou and Mas Gourdon. They are small wineries that have concentrated on producing quality wines. We ate lunch... More

We walked to the peak with our kids aged 11 & 12 on a rather warm day. We carried plenty of water and food. The walk up took about 1.5 hours, quite steep towards the top but the views at the peak were amazing. We had clear views in all directions. Very busy on top (it was a Sunday). The... More

I loved this hike. It was very easy to get there, there were scenic views all around, and we saw all kinds of people doing it. There were families hiking to the top, pensioners..so you really don't need to worry about not having hit the gym in ages. On Top I had a picnic with a beautiful view and even... More

Such a beautiful area. We wished we had more time to explore! We could have spent a whole day just exploring and enjoying the area. Thanks Bertrand!

I loved it but didn't bring enough water and it was a lot harder than I thought it would be. They should sell some water, it would be a great idea. When you get to the top there is a plaque that says who died, not the best tourist attraction.

We cycled to the location from Montpellier on most days. Its about 20 miles away from the centre of town. The location is very pretty but is a bit remote and hardly anybody was there when we went.

Was a fabulous climb but unfortunately I didn't quite make it. My husband continued the last kilometre himself and said it was worth it. Although there aren't very many facilities at the top ... just a man with some cans of coke!
