Between sea and mountains on the D 612, 30 km north of Beziers, Saint-Chinian nestles in the verdant valley Vernazobres dominated south by a chain of rocks and north by the foothills of the Cevennes.

Arriving from the neck Fontjun, you will marvel at the magnificent panorama before your eyes: the mountains of the Massif Grage and Caroux.
