Although it was cloudy and we couldn't see anything from the top - it was still a lot of fun climbing up there and totally worth it.

The whole area around St-Loup is heavenly. Vineyards and mountains. This place gets even better at sundown.

I went with my two daughters, aged 10 and 12, along with a friend and her two children of the same ages. I had no idea what kind of climb it would be but my climbing companion had said it was not overly difficult. It turned out to be a marginally good workout. It is not a super steep climb,... More

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!
