A hop and a skip away from Montpellier is St Guilhem, one of the most beautiful little villages in France. It’s popular so prepare to see a lot of tourists but it is gorgeous. You can quite comfortably just stroll around the village but for a little more adventure, pack your walking shoes (which I did not) and take a hike (which I did) up the big jutting hill to reach a monk’s chapel and take in the view of the village below. It’s also super handy to get to with a bus from Montpellier taking you right there.
Best Time To Visit
Best time to visit Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is from October to April
