bienvenue welcome
Welcome to the website of Les Jardins de la Source. We hope we’ll have the chance, very soon, of welcoming you chez nous in person. Whether just for a relaxing, stress-free break or to partake of our spa facilities, we offer a unique vacation experience.

Why unique?

First, the services we offer. Our guest accommodation comprises just three double suites finished to the highest standards, each with its own south facing terrace, and with the owners on site every day of your stay, you are assured of a high level of personal service because you are one of only a maximum of ten guests at any one time. The accommodation is supplemented with facilities which you would normally associate with only the best and largest hydrotherapy centres and hotels. We have a 10 metre swimming pool, a hammam and a treatment centre where our resident physiotherapist – formerly one of the most celebrated in Paris – offers both traditional and the latest techniques.

Secondly, our location. Les Jardins de la Source is situated on a 1,000 m2 plot right in the middle of one of the Languedoc’s liveliest market towns. From our gates it is a 100 yard/metre stroll to the celebrated Wednesday market where the stall holders have been selling their (mostly organic) local produce for centuries. And we are 200 yards/metres from over a dozen restaurants or brasseries – whether you want to experience gourmet dining on a grand scale or sample a hearty home-cooked simple formule du jour, Clermont’s eateries are at your disposal. There are also over a hundred shops in the town within a 500 yard/metre radius, catering for all your needs. And yet we are on a quiet side street where peace is at a premium and, between April and October, when the trees are in leaf, the neighbouring properties hardly figure in our consciousness.

Thirdly, location again! We fell in love with the Herault department, and we’re sure you will too. Only 25 miles/40km away, the blue of the Mediterranean stretches into the distance under a gentle breeze. The vigour of sea breezes provides welcome freshness along the miles of unspoilt beaches. The relaxing calm of one of France’s largest man-made lakes, Salagou, is only 5 miles/7km away. Yet only a few miles north in the high Cevennes, snow-capped summits tower over the valleys. Here in the Languedoc, France reveals its true character, varied atmospheres and its joie de vivre.
