What makes this village special?

From the village, the panorama is exceptional for those who love garrigue landscapes and their special luminosity, the color of the beautiful stones and the greenery of the valleys and plateaus. The walk in the streets of the town solicits the eye at every turn. Stone benches, wells, mansions, dovecotes, small gardens located near the old temple...

The chirping of birds and the subtle fragrances of plants and flowers delight the senses. You can admire the Sarrazine tower, from the 12th century, the oldest building in the town, the remains of a fortified castle and a rampart, the Barry, whose vaults can be seen overlooking garages today. . A communal oven is still visible from the main street.

To the north and west, you can climb the Carcarie, a hill overlooking the village, which offers a fitness trail laid out under the pines. The promenade offers breathtaking views. Tables and benches invite you to take a picnic break or meditate. Staying in Montaren-et-Saint-Médiers is the best way to enjoy peace and nature while being able to discover, nearby, the wonders of Uzège in complete freedom: the town of Uzès, Saint- Quentin-la-Poterie, Lussan and the monastery of Solan. The massif of the Gardon gorges is a place not to be missed!

Montaren-et-Saint-Médiers became, from the Middle Ages, a center of agriculture and the production of olives, wines and cereals. Do not miss the small local producers' market which is held every Sunday morning to find these good products!
