Hostel – for groups or individuals


In the center of the old village, accessible, comfortable and friendly

The hostel Le Diablotin (named little devil from the bridge upon the Herault river) is located in the heart of St Jean de Fos, a potters village dating back to the mediaeval times.

The building itself, entirely restored using traditional building materials by local craftsmen, brings back to life the time when the ground floor was a café back in the XIX century, when the street was known as rue des Pénitents Blancs, after the chapel across the way (recognizable by the Saint James shell on its front).
The clock towers bell (50 m tall) calls out the hours with its lovely sound.
Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is located at 4 kms.
A classified Site, it is one of the most beautiful villages in France and today its abbey is registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The Devil’s bridge (swimming and canoe) is a 10-minute walk away.
