The source of the River HERAULT is at the top of Mont Aigoual, a wonderful viewpoint in the Cévennes.
The river flows through semi-mountainous country, creating magnificent beaches of fine sand and pebbles.
LE MOULIN is situated on the banks of the Hérault, alongside the D 986 between Ganges and St-Bauzille-de-Putois, a village that is home to the famous Grotte des Demoiselles.
Rent a canoe or kayak and explore the Hérault gorge as it wanders through the historic Cévennes.
You may see the beautiful grey heron, black kites and kingfishers, or you might see a gold-prospector going quietly about his work.
Yes indeed, the Hérault has gold in it and had its glory days in the early 20th Century.
Why not think about exploring the river in a canoe or kayak, under the southern sun? A great idea for two or more people. The valley has plenty of friendly, quality accommodation (gites, hotels and good restaurants...).
