With the majestic Cevennes and natural reserve of the High Languedoc to the North, Gabian is the gateway southwards through the wine growing plains stretching to Pézenas and the Mediterranean beyond.
Sitting at the meeting of two rivers, in a long valley in the middle of Occitanie, Gabian is a small village of around 800 inhabitants.
It all starts at the source, ‘the Resclause’ a natural source of water. First exploited in the Neolithic era and then later by the Romans who realising its potential, built an aqueduct to supply Béziers with mills along the route.
Gabian belongs to the group of ‘villages circulades’, circular villages of Occitanie.
Many vestiges of its past are visible such as the ancient ramparts guarding the end of rue du Théron.
Under the watchful facadeof the chateau de Cassan, life in the village continues its rhythm, following the seasons of the vineyards.
Gabian has in the past been valued for the richness of its natural resources. Today its architectural heritage and rustic appeal attracts people who come to live here.
A village of history, Gabian will charm you with its simplicity, nonchalance and rusticity, right in the heart of Occitanie
