The jewel of the Hérault Valley, the village of Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert makes the ideal setting for a romantic stroll arm-in-arm. Listed as one of the “Most Beautiful Villages in France”, Saint-Guilhem has preserved the medieval street layout that gives it all its charm.
From alleyways to secluded little squares, take time out to explore its boutiques, admire the ruins of the Giant’s castle and, of course, visit the Gellone Abbey, a Unesco world heritage site. But this is far from being the end of your visit! The abbey marks the starting point for the superb Fenestrettes hiking trail (3hr) offering a breathtaking view of the Cirque de l’Infernet.
