South of France Luxury in 17th Century Convent
Herepian, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Additional Location Information
Situated in the Languedoc National Park and surrounded by the wine regions of Faugère, Coteaux du Languedoc and Saint Chinian., the village of Hérépian is close to Lamalou-les-Bains and many picturesque villages as well as a mere 15km from the stunning Gorge d’Héric.

Just 50metres from the Couvent is the celebrated Ocre Rouge. This former coaching house enjoys an excellent reputation for serving exciting dishes and using fresh local ingredients. Open for lunch Thursday to Sunday and for dinner Tuesday to Saturday. Booking essential.
