Located on a hill, close to Montpellier, Castries benefits to the north, a beautiful natural scenery of vineyards and scrubland to the Cévennes. In the south, the city contemplates the agricultural plain, the Etang de l'Or and azure Mediterranean shore.
From anywhere, the traveler is emerging on the horizon, the imposing silhouette of the castle with its roof covered with glazed tiles and Renaissance facades. Built with golden stone of the south, the building prince watches over the heart of the village and its maze of ancient streets. At his side, like sentinels, dart arrow in the Saint-Etienne church and the unique water tower.
Castries surprises and delights with its exceptional architecture, an assembly consisting of the castle, a wonderful French garden and a monumental aqueduct, all masterpieces of famous men and visionary. Nearby, the career site revives the memory of the extraction of the famous stone also known as the South Castries or Beaulieu and for the construction and embellishment of the great cities of the south.
Castries, beyond a trip back in time, offers a natural pause in its Mediterranean setting. The soul of this land is authentic, subtly perfumed as its fine wines and other local flavors. Landscapes, manmade, are imbued with soft colors and the gateway to the Country of Vine and Stone certainly leads to the highlights.

We're also close to major tourist sites : Saint-Guilhem le Désert, Aigues-Mortes and Camargues, Arles, Nîmes, Sètes.

About Our Family

My name is Emilie and i am working for music festivals and my husband Jean is working in a hotel . We are working both in Montpellier. We have 3 kids : Mathilde (15), Simon (13) and Louise (4). We already did five exchanges and we all loved it ! We'd love to discover other places as if we were locals.

Lifestyle

We love playing and resting in the garden, cooking barbecue with friends. They’re a lot of paths next the house to go biking and running and a lot of nice landscapes to discover around. We often go out in Montpellier (cinema, bars, festivals...). During summer, we often go to the beach.
