Villages to discover.
Balaruc-le-Vieux, Poussan, Gigean, Loupian and Montbazin... these villages, built in the typically Languedoc 'circulade' style, offer a remarkable historical heritage, from Roman villas to medieval abbeys and churches, as well as examples of the traditional architectural style of the wine-growing region.
