The Languedoc-Roussillon region
In the south of France, 50km to Montpellier, near (22km) Lodève, artistic and cultural town, 22 km. Viaduc de Millau, 50 km. Roquefort Cellars, 60 km. Templar's villages of Larzac : La Couvertoirade, Ste Eulalie de Cernon, La Cavalerie, Viala du Pas de Jaux et Saint Jean d'Alcas. Dream's villages : Pégairolle de Buègue, Saint Jean de Buègue, Pégairolle de l'Escalette, Saint Privat les Salces. We love to go there to feel and draw space.
Cantercel is in the South Larzac, the heart of Herault and in the middle of three main large sites :
The cirque de Navacelles, (18 Km) : A contemplation place facing infinite of earth and heaven, a grandiose scenary, the biggest european canyon over the river La Vis (18 km from Cantercel). We love to go there and draw, to feel different scales of territory. It's like a water island in the middle of the desert landscape, from the planetary view of the corrie limits until fairy intimacy of waterfalls of Navacelles' village.
Saint Guilhem le Désert and the Gorges de l'Hérault, (25 Km)
One of the most beautiful french village, IXth century abbey, closter, organ with specific repertoire, which gives a special private atmosphere in the concerts. 25 km drive from Cantercel and 8h walk on the GR 74, the village stands on the Gorges de l'Hérault. You can also visit caves, the "Grotte de Clamouse" and more north, the "Grotte des Demoiselles". You can bath in the river, go canoeing, walk in this naturally preserved site.
saint guilhem le desert
The Lac du Salagou, (24 Km)
It is surrounded by an attractive landscape. Water lays in red rocks punctuated by golden brooms in spring time. Hiking path, typical villages of Celles and Liausson, a rich ecosystem, exceptionnal sites such as Mourèze Corrie, just to enjoy and stimulate your senses. 24 km away from Cantercel, you can have a full day of swimming, sailing and why not, wine tasting!

"Out of this world!"
We were looking for somewhere a little bit different and boy, did that little house fill that requirement. It is absolutely beautiful and a truly special place to stay in.
No neighbours, apart from the owners (really lovely people) who were far enough away that you wouldn't have known they were there, but close enough just in case anything was required.
The house is just amazing, totally eco friendly, but warm and comfortable. Even though we went in May, we didn't have the best weather and sitting in front of the log fire of an evening was just magical. No light pollution, no noise, at night the only sounds you could hear were the sounds of the night, totally natural. Sitting outside (under a blanket) gave you the impression you were the only people on the planet (a full moon also added to the atmosphere).
We cannot endorse this little house enough, stunning house, stunning location, stunning scenery, stunning area of France. Although not going back there this year, it is definitely on our list to visit again in the not too distant future.
Loved every inch of this little haven.
