Pic Saint-Loup

Located in the hinterland of Montpellier, Pic Saint-Loup is both one of the most beautiful natural sites in the area and the location of one of the best hiking trails of the garrigue. From its summit, views stretch over the plains and the coast. 

Located 25 minutes from Montpellier, Pic Saint-Loup rises up at the start of the Cévennes foothills in an area of scrubland (garrigue) to the north of Montpellier.



Its peak, reached by a one hour hiking trail, rises to 658 metres, is marked by a chapel and cross and offers breathtaking panoramas.


The vegetation, characteristically adapted to summer drought, is made up of several typically Mediterranean species — Holm oak, Kermes oak, Aleppo pine, Arbutus trees...

These help to make up the fragant nature of wines from Pic Saint-Loup.



'Coteaux du Languedoc AOC' - Pic Saint Loup, is the most northerly of Languedoc's appellations.
