Roquebrun, or the “Nice of the Hérault”, as it is called here.
Difficult to say whether is its micro-climate or history that makes the village Roquebrun so unique.
The land is rich in schist. This mineral has two virtues: it holds water and stores heat to return it slowly. In fact, local winemakers admit that, here, the grapes ripen at night.
The exceptional climate allows Mediterranean gardens to grow. Orange, lemon and other citrus trees provide beautiful fruit in the heart of winter, while mimosas lighten the landscape in February. Check out the collection of mimosas at the Mediterranean Garden in Roquebrun (at the foot of the tower).
It should not come as a surprise that men were attracted to the area for thousands years.
ceps grand 01Troglodytes shepherds, Roman soldiers, Carolingian kings, Cathars, they all tasted the same sunshine.

Along these streets, the old village is a must. Entangled houses reveal their secrets meter by meter. Sometimes, between two buildings, the landscape unfolds (go near the church of St. Andrew where you can enjoy a beautiful panorama) and you can admire the vineyards, the Orb river and the bridge which has spanned it since 1870. The legend says that the workers danced four days and four nights after completing the building.



A festive tradition continues; the Roquebrun inhabitants gather twenty times a year, for entertainment and festivals, especially for mimosa festival (2nd Sunday in February) and local wines festivals (AOC Saint Chinian Roquebrun).
