Le Grand Hermitage is only one kilometre from Clermont L'Herault, our local market town, and yet set deep in the countryside, with vines as far as the eye can see. The picturesque and trendy Pézenas is just 25 minutes away. This is the best of all worlds, close enough to good restaurants, shops and bars, but far enough away to ensure your right to peace.

Le Grand Hermitage is open all year round, from short breaks to full holidays and long term rentals (out of season). Your invitation to take a break with us in this lovely part of France is only available to couples, or singles.
Suitable for all - lovers, artists, writers, poets and the stressed.
Many people choose to come to the South of France during the traditional summer months, but why not consider Spring, Autumn or even Winter.
Spring starts early in the Languedoc, usually February. With bright blue skies, and lots of sunshine, the temperature during the day even in February can be in the 20's. This is when we have some rain, although often at night. Watch the brown stick-like vines start to stretch up and sprout the first signs of new growth.
Look out for the wild boar in the early morning and evening taking a stroll with their young. Walk over the hills and identify the wild orchids.
The time of the vendage, warm days and still warm nights. The grapes are harvested now, mushrooms are hunted, the chasse are out every Sunday looking for wild rabbits and game. The vines turn from green to shades of yellow, red and orange. A beautiful season.
Winters in France start in December and finish in February. They are usually dry, the days often warm and the nights often cold.
Shop for your Christmas presents in Montpellier, and you will never want to face the crowds in your home city again. The shops are for the most part individual privately owned. Your gift will be wrapped up for you, leaving you only to place it under the tree.
Recover from this arduous task by lunching in Le Comedie, basking in the sunshine and listening to the local buskers.
