The village of Sommières is one of the most picturesque in the region. It has a Roman bridge, a medieval centre, a fortified gate and the ruins of a castle. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of cycling. There are many cafes and quaint shops in which to recover and refuel. Trek up the hill to the chateau, even if you don’t have much time to visit the historic castle itself as the panoramic view over the rooftops is worth it. Each weekend during the summer months, Sommières hosts one of the largest and most vibrant Brocante Markets in the south of France.
Several of our guided and self-guided trips stop in Sommières including our “Taste of Provence and Languedoc“, and “Languedoc: Vineyards, Markets and Roman Ruins“. Or we can of course design a custom tour for you which includes this pretty town.
