Get away from it all in Baillargues, next door to Montpellier, on a 2.5 hr walk among manades (herds of bulls), garrigues and vineyards near Saint-Brès and Saint-Géniès-des-Mourgues.
Hortus mountain is quieter than neighbouring Pic Saint-Loup and it’s less steep too! There are lots of paths along the craggy cliffs. Why not head for Sussargues and unearth some hidden leafy gems?
Make a beeline for Domaine de Fondespierre in Castries with a 2 hr walk amongst vineyards, meadows and evergreen oaks. You could go for a shorter trail through the former quarries in a leafy setting along the River Bérange.
Le Sentier du Dragon wine hike trail was co-designed by the Héraut Hiking Federation and AOC Languedoc-Saint-Georges-d’Orques. It’s a fantastic walk through the garrigue, vineyards and old stones with the opportunity to meet passionate vine growers.
