Le Pont du Diable

We left our car in the parking lot of the tourist information office by the ‘Pont du Diable’. Since the office was still closed, we followed the nice path all the way down to the Hérault river with a view on and a walk over the “devil bridge”.


The weather wasn’t too great but the water looked rather calm. So we were debating whether we should set up our paddle board. A very helpful woman at the tourist info advised us against a paddle tour. It was likely to rain later. Then we wouldn’t just get wet but the river’s current would also get stronger, whose motions were hard to predict anyway. In this very spacious and new office, the girls got to colour at a kids’ table while we got more tips on what to do nearby and on our way north.

So we “just” went on a small hike to a neighbouring bridge of the ‘Pont du Diable’ with an abandoned restaurant. On the way back, we saw a dead deer on the cliffs *oh*

As to the sights nearby, we decided to skip another cave (Grotte de Clamouse) but rather explored the little ancient city Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert. The hilly town with a creek was very interesting to explore. We had our lunch break by a lovely waterfall.

After five minutes in the car, on the way to our next destination, the girls were already asleep. They missed some pretty and big waterfalls close to Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert.
