Magnificent day at Gorges d’Héric

Now the busy holiday season is over, it might be an idea to take a trip to the beautiful Gorges d’Héric. You can easily spend a day at this natural site and it is enjoyable for both young and old.

BLOG 2013 gorges d heric 001 The Héric river over 1000 meters altitude in the Espinousse in le Massif du Caroux and plunges at 8 kilometres for 800 meters down into the Orb river. It is an impressive gorge where you can make beautiful walks. For climbing enthusiasts: there are about 200 climbing routes. You can also swim in the naturally formed rock pools, so bring your bathing suit! In the summer it is a popular place, even for the locals, so best is to come early to get your perfect spot. Besides July and August it is less crowded and still great for walking or swimming. The last only if you’re brave enough, because the water is very cold! Picnicking makes the trip complete, there are plenty wonderful places to spread your picnic blanket.

BLOG 2013 gorges d heric 002If you would like to go to this magical place, you just have to follow the signs to Olargues. As soon as you see the Mons la Trivalle sign, together with the Gorges d’Héric, follow this direction. You can park for 3 € in the high season. Here you will also find a bar where you can drink or eat an ice cream. The bar closes in low season, please keep this in mind as there is nothing much to get after the parking.

BLOG 2013 gorges d heric 003One of the great walks you can do is walk to Héric. There is a perfect track which will lead you all the way up, very accessible for buggy’s and kids. It will take about one and a half hour to get to the top, where you can have a refreshing drink in the café. Downwards will go twice as quickly.

Where to buy in Languedoc Roussillon?

The region of Languedoc Roussillon is one of the sunniest of France. However, within this region, there is a difference in weather. So it is worth your time to investigate which area of Languedoc Roussillon appeals most to you.

Basically, the region is to be divided into four areas: the mountain area (montagne), the foothill areas (arrière pays and passage) and the coastal area (littoral).

Real estate wise are the prices in the coastal area quite high. The landscape is flat, not very beautiful (compared to the mountain areas) and it gets very busy during high season. The sun does shine however. The mountain area on the contrary is very beautiful and the prices of real estate are low. However, if you are looking for sunshine, this is not the area to buy. Rain comes down more often in these regions, also in summer.

The area where Maxéa is specialized in, is the foothill area. This area does offer great scenery, combined with sunshine and reasonable prices. Both the departments of the Hérault as the Aude offer great houses.

Languedoc Roussillon is a pleasant region to live in. It is very accessible, both by route and by plane.

Close to the Mediterranean beaches as well as beautiful mountains, rivers to swim or canoe, bustling market villages, historical cities and the canal the Midi:  the region appeals to a lot of people to buy a secondary home or even their principal residence. Despite the great interest, especially further inland, the regions still remains its characteristic charm without being overflowed by tourists. Live is good in Languedoc Roussillon!
