Cantercel means “sing earth and space” or “sing earth and sky”.
Linking uses and poetry
A vocation of hospitality is anchored in the history and the situation of this traditional place of stopover for the transhumance of the herds. This site, a threshold between the plateau and the plain, offers a panoramic view of the ‘Golfe du Lion and a celestial vault free of light pollution. Its atmosphere resonates with the mythical imagination of the planet… Perhaps that of the Little Prince of Saint-Exupéry who asked for a drawing… of a sheep… Today, habitats are designed there for a society in transition.
Linking tradition and innovation
Cantercel is at the heart of three major heritage sites located within a radius of 20km: the Lac du Salagou and the Cirque de Mourèze, St Guilhem le désert and the Gorges de l’Hérault and finally the Cirque de Navacelles. Between the Devil’s Bridge and the Millau Viaduct, the site is also on the edge of the Causses et Cévennes perimeter, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2013 for its living landscape shaped by Man. Cantercel’s architecture shapes a landscape and constitutes a heritage for tomorrow.
Linking living space and resting place
Easily accessible via the A75, with 3 motorway exits between 15 and 20km whether you are coming from Paris, Toulouse or Lyon, the site is just one hour from Montpellier. The quality of the living environment and the cultural dynamism of the Hérault region encourage visitors to visit Cantercel, where the inhabitants are all guests of the place.
