8 km north of Montpellier, the village of Prades-le-Lez houses the Domain of Restinclières. A place dedicated to nature where the Departmental House of the Environment is based.

To see: the château, the park, open to the public, the hiking paths and the range of entertainment.


Vast property of 200 hectares, the Restinclières Domain is both wild and agricultural.

Bordered by two rivers the Lez and the Lirou, it offers a mosaic of different countryside as well as an exceptional natural heritage.

The château was transformed in the 18th century by the Cambacérès family in the Montpellier ‘follies’ style.

In front of the château is an elegant french garden. To water the garden, water was channelled from the nearby source of the Lez . A must see.

After the Revolution, the Domain was dedicated to wine growing.

Today the INRA research centre develops on one part of the domain, agroforestry, a type of agriculture associating tree plantation and cultivated parcels. 

The domain is to be seen using the clear paths, the proposed educational events and activities that punctuate the year (exhibitions, workshops, conferences, performances) or whilst having a picnic with your family or among friends.
