CAMPING LES MIMOSAS

Roquebrun

Colourful village

The picturesque village of Roquebrun is located 43.4 km northwest of the Les Mimosas campsite. If you take highway D19, it is 48 minutes by car. Roquebrun invites you to wander down its narrow streets saturated with the smell of lemon and its flowered paths that wind through the hills.

This medieval village located in the Haut Languedoc Natural Park is perched above the valley of the Orb. The village is bathed in unusually warm temperatures, making it ideal for growing mimosa trees and exotic plants and giving it the nickname the “Nice of the Herault”. A garden-village, Roquebrun is crossed by a botanical trail.

With its exceptional geology and ideal climate with 2,750 hours of sunlight per year, Roquebrun is where you can live the good life. Archeological discoveries, mostly of remains of old homes, have revealed that the village was first occupied in prehistoric times. The Romans came later and contributed greatly to the development of the province. A series of invasions occurred between the years 370 and 800, a time during which fortified castles were built along the Montagne Noire to protect the community. The Roquebrun castle was erected during this time, but unfortunately, all that remains of it today is its uninhabitable square tower.
