Walking in the Hérault

The house is situated between the the Mediterranean and the Black Mountains in the Languedoc village of Magalas. The area has many, many footpaths and marked routes for walkers, both long distance ( sentiers de grande randonnée) and shorter ones ( promenade et randonnée) . The paths are all described in the TopoGuides, giving details of the route and length of the path and how long it would take to walk, the surrounding area, places to see, where to park, the colour marking the route,  any difficulties, as well as the maximum and minimum altitudes and the total climb. The walks are all graded from easy to difficult. They are simple but comprehensive and accurate guides. We have not been let down yet!



The tracks are very well signposted: the marks are on trees or rocks, walls, posts.


Carry on – you’re on the right track!

Not this way!

On our walk today with overcast skies the only people we passed in 3 hours were those pruning the vines .
