Pic St-Loup

Route de Pompignan, Languedoc-Roussillon

The Basics

The wine produced on the low slopes of Pic St-Loup is some of the most highly-regarded terroirs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Come to the mountain for wine-tastings or to hike along the well-maintained trails, enjoying unobstructed panoramas stretching to the Mediterranean Sea to the south and to the Cevennes Mountains in the north. At 215 feet (658-meters), the summit is within reach.

Travelers may discover Pic St-Loup as part of a half-day or full-day tour that may include walking or hiking explorations of the mountain as well as a bird’s eye view of the both Pic St-Loup, Montpellier,xa0 and Camargue nature reserve—where pink flamingos, wild white horses, and black Camargue bulls live—from the comfort of a small plane. Other tours visit some of the local AOC wineries for tastings.

Follow in the footsteps of the Saint Clément aqueduct as far as the Pic Saint Loup.
We had a wonderful time on this tour. David is a very knowledgeable guide and an excellent host. The views from Pic Saint Loup were astoundingly beautiful! The wine tasting was great fun. Lunch was delicious and full of interesting conversation with the others on the tour with us. The aqueduct is an awesome feat of engineering and also architecturally interesting. All in all we would highly recommend this tour! C'était formidable !

Hike to the top of "Pic Saint Loup" and a wine tasting
The tour was a highlight of our time in Montpellier, beautiful views, Bertrand is an exceptional host, very warm, funny and shared a deep history of the place and his expertise on wine from the region. The winery he took us to was also incredible, we wanted to buy every bottle we tasted! Bertrand let us take our time during our hike and had wonderful suggestions for our time in Montpellier. We are really looking forward to coming back and doing the lunch cooked by his mother next time. It felt like we weren't just tourists, but got a sense of connection to the region. Thanks to Bertrand for a wonderful day, highly recommend all his tours.

A great tour lead by a local. Bertrand knows everything about the area and knows all the best wineries and the wine makers. And his mom is an amazing cook. This tour feels like you are being shown around by family friends. A great experience.

Amazing Must Do Wine Tour

Pic Saint Loup Winetour & food
I cannot even begin to explain how wonderful this entire experience was! Berteau was phenomenal and so personable and fun to be around. I learned so much about wine in France and his mother’s cooking is better than most restaurant cuisine. If you are in Montpellier this is a must do! The vineyard views are breathtaking.

Small-Group Half-Day Languedoc Pic Saint-Loup Wine Tour from Montpellier
My husband and I thoroughly recommend this tour. We had a wonderful half day exploring the wine country of the Languedoc. We happened to be the only two people on the tour so it was a private tour. Our tour guide was fantastic. He is a winemaker himself so he was very knowledgeable about the winemaking process. He was also very personable and friendly. The countryside was beautiful and the wines delicious. Great tour!

Absolutely fantastic!

Bertrand is an excellent guide, so passionate about what he does that spending some time listening to his insightful explanations can be more entertaining than the wineries we visit in the tour themselves. The morning visits to the wineries finished at the guesthouse of his mother, and this personal touch added even more to the overall experience. She cooked a really delicious 3-course meal, and the table set under the tree outdoors gave that special "grandmother Sunday dinner table" vibe. I strongly recommend this tour!

Small-Group Half-Day Languedoc Pic Saint-Loup Wine Tour from Montpellier
Our guide, Marc, was one of the best guides that we have had on any tour ... especially wine tour. He was beyond knowledgeable (probably due to the fact that he and his brother produce their own wine!). There were only three of us on the tour, which also really added to this. Marc led the wine tastings and tours at a couple of the stops and he was a wealth of knowledge. And of course, the wine that we sampled at each winery was plentiful and delicious. The red wines of the Languedoc are fabulous. This is a perfect addition to a brief stop in Montpellier.

How to Get There

Pic St-Loup is about 22 miles (35 kilometers) north of Montpellier, and is accessible by car via D986 and D113. Expect about a 45-minute drive, and for there to be parking in the commune of Cazevieille. A hike to the summit is manageable and should take between 1 and 2 hours.

When to Get There

Pic St-Loup is open year-round, as the climate is temperate year-round. The best time to visit the area is May or September when the rates are lower, crowds are fewer, and the birds arrive on migration. The flamingo flocks are especially extravagant in summer and winter. Come in June for the Festival of Live Architecture when Montpellier’s historic city center is taken over by ephemeral contemporary architecture.
