Additional Location Information

Causses et Veyran is a small village north of Beziers. It is a wine producing village that lies amid the vineyards of the Hérault department in Languedoc-Roussillon. The village is typical of this region of France with old stone houses, colourful shutters and red, terracotta rooftops softened by centuries of hot summer sunshine. The surrounding countryside tells the story of the village and the region. Everywhere you look, you will see hectare upon hectare of vineyards, the origin of the excellent wines of the Saint Chinian label.

Causses et Veyran is calm and unpretentious, yet fulfils expectations of a southern French rural village. Totally authentic, many of its houses have stood for centuries and generations of French families have lived here. There's a 'depot du pain', grocery store, La Poste and a lovely bar/restaurant. There are many excellent places in the countryside and neighbouring towns where you can enjoy the cuisine and wines of the region.

We are near Roquebrun and Cessenon-sur-Orb, both popular and bustling towns which date back to medieval times. Here you'll find local bars, restaurants, supermarket, butcher, bank, hairdresser etc.

Roquebrun has a 'beach' alongside the River Orb for swimming and is ideally located for many outdoor activities including kayaking nearby. Cessenon also has a great swimming section of the river and on Saturdays there is a food market and during summer a lively mid-August festival. A change of pace occurs in September with the vendange (grape harvest) and the start of spectacular autumn colours on the vines.

The roads are fantastic for cycling at any time of the year, with good weather, little wind and sparse traffic (the vendange being the exception!). There are also excellent off-road cycling tracks too. The range of walks is staggering from gentle strolls through the vineyard to more challenging hikes up the mountains of the Haut-Languedoc Naturel Parc. As we also run an outdoor activity holiday business, ((website: hidden)), we can provide in-depth advice on cycling and walking routes.

We are in a micro-climate, with little rain and plenty of sunshine, even in winter. It has an amazing quality of light which provides spectacular sunsets over the surrounding hills.
