The department of Herault is in the Languedoc-Roussillon region located in the south of France. It is surrounded by the Pyrenees-Orientales, Ariege, Tarn and Aude departments.

Widely regarded as possibly the most dynamic department in Languedoc Roussillon with Montpellier as its capital and the popular seaside resorts of Sete and Grande Motte bringing in millions of tourists every summer, the Herault department is certainly busy and growing.

But despite all the activity along the coast, the interior of Herault is as beautiful and unspoiled as it has always been. The Herault countryside is glorious, driving away from the coast into the foothills of the Black Mountains you can get lost in an ocean of vines.

Villages in the department of Herault are incredibly pretty. Roquebrun is stunning, with its bridge and old water mill on the river Orb. St Guilhem-le-Desert is also beautiful - and one of Languedoc's top tourist spots.

Herault is also a favourite of Brits looking to move to the area. Pezenas and Lodeve are both popular towns - Pezenas used to be the region's capital and is becoming quite chic.

In short - the department combines beautiful countryside with the buzz and glamour of a major city (Montpellier).
