Hot! Exploring Herault: A Post Series

herault

While I was in France I had the good fortune to spend a substantial amount of time in three different departments which are all often ignored on vacation itineraries for France: Ardeche, Auvergne, and Herault. I will be doing an “Exploring _____” post series for each of the departments, starting with the last: Herault.

My friend Rosemary lives in the tiny village of Lagamas in France’s Herault department. When I visited her for two and a half weeks this past summer, she did a lovely job driving me around the region, taking me to beautiful natural sites, vibrant market towns, and giving me glimpses of just how much more the department had to offer to travelers. This post series will discuss various topics about visiting Herault. As the posts go live, they will be collected here.
