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.

Winetour & home made food in Pic St Loup
We were very lucky to be the only couple on our wine tour, so we had the excellent and knowledgeable tour guide all to ourselves. We learnt alot through this personal tour, and was treated to amazing wines in to wineries, also an amazing home made lunch personally cooked at the tour guides home!! We then finished with a walk through a 1400s medieval town before being dropped back home. What am amazing and romantic day! Cannot recommend this tour highly enough!!!

Hike to the top of "Pic Saint Loup", food and wine tasting
Bertrand is an excellent guide about Pic Saint-Loup in general and talked us through a selection of wines. He dropped up off at the start of the path. It is a challenging hike but the view at the top is to die for so it’s well worth it.

Hike to the top of "Pic Saint Loup", food and wine tasting
BOOK THIS. Bertrand is the man. Informative, helpful, humorous, and kind. Whether you're new to the region or consider yourself an expert he has something wonderful to share with your group: a true local perspective. The hike is breathtaking and at least during the month of May the air is rich with beautiful fragrance and the sound of song birds. His mother (who blessed us with lunch) is worthy of a James Beard award. The tour of Chateau la Roque was simply delicious and fun. Oh and the transport is all included. If you're still reading this and haven't booked it yet then please go do that.

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", food and 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.

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.

Show all

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.

Enjoy the UNESCO World Heritage Center, The Camargue

Inside Western Europe’s largest river delta, the 49,421-acre (20,000-hectare) Camargue Natural Park is a spectacular reserve with unique landscapes and wildlife.
