Let me say up front that we enjoyed about 2 hours of our 2 and a half hour walk. We agree with most of the positive reviews & would say to the negative ones ‘sure there’s always something better somewhere else but when you’re on...More

The views and wierd shapes that are formed in the rocks are well worth visiting.There is some clambering if you want the best views but also they have a Petit Train which will take people who aren't so mobile to see some of the site.

That was on my trip from Geneva to South coast of France when I could enjoy the Montpellier-le-Vieux views. The mountains look so picturesque in summer. Like huge giants hanging over the highway. I also liked the camping stops for cars, the toilets were decent....More

This is a highly unusual series of rock formations - in a moonscape like environment - an excellent place to spend 4 hours of walking and talking and admiring the views. Fabulous.

Decided to do the red route, which is indicated as taking 1.5 to 2 hours. We took 2.5 hours, which is an indication of how often we stopped to enjoy the amazing views. There is a lot of unevenness in the route, with some high...More

This place (also advertised as Chaos de Montpellier le Vieux) features some out of the ordinary shaped rocks and a few semi-impressive view points. The area supports several 30-40 minutes walks and a little ¨steam¨ train.

Great walk through rocky surroundings - we took care to stay away as much as possible from the tourist herds, though. Come before noon, afterwards it became a bit too crowded. Some relatively steep areas to walk, great views, overall a nice experience.
