22 February 2018 – Castelnau de Guers

This is a mostly easy walk of about 6 km on a marked PR route that visits the ruins of the Ermitage St. Antoine.

2016-02-25 13-26-20.JPGThe weather this week should be cold but sunny, with moderate wind. We propose a walk from Castelnau de Guers, which is just south-east of Pezenas.

The walk is a marked PR circuit of about 6 km, and is mostly easy, on a mixture of quiet roads, tracks and paths. We did this walk 2 years ago, and it passes through a great variety of countryside, vineyards, fields, garrigue and ruffe. The first part of the walk gives views across the Herault river towards Pezenas, as we ascend a gentle incline to the ruins of the Ermitage St. Antoine.

As usual we shall meet outside the Luteva Cinema at 9:50, ready to leave at 10:00. The walk will start from the parking area outside the cemetery of Castelnau de Guers, at about 10:40. We should be back in Lodeve around 13:30.

Leader: Andrew
Distance: ~ 6 km


25 February 2016 – Castelnau de Guers

The walk started at the parking beside the cemetery in Castelnau-de-Guers. The weather was good and not too windy. It was a delightful walk with a lot of variety in the country side including forests, vineyards and open fields. We had spectacular views over the valley to Pezenas and beyond.

Almond trees still beautifully in blossom. 


After a few kilometers we passed the ruins of the  l’Hermitage Saint-Antoine and its chapel.

All in all it was an easy walk, with only a short moderate climb at the end of the 10 kilometers’ walk and a few rocky patches earlier on.

Leader: Dorine

Distance: 10km
