Vineyards, olive groves and pretty villages: discover Lake Salagou.

In the upper Herault region of the Languedoc is the unique landscape of the Salagou valley, one of France’s most unique and beautiful areas, centred around a manmade lake. Abundant flora, fauna, and charming medieval villages make this a great picnic spot, and Clermont L’Herault is a medieval-style bustling little town with a great market and restaurants lining its tree-lined streets.  Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, this is a patch of southern France that is really worth exploring. Here are three properties that might tempt you down to the beautiful area north-west of Montpellier.

Elegantly designed four-bedroom modern villa set in a beautiful garden with well-presented swimming pool. Makes the ideal family home but also offers great letting potential.

Just a few minutes from Lake Salagou, this is a stunning four-bedroom villa with its own pool that has been reduced in price. Ready to move into and instantly enjoy.
