La Couvertoirade Things to Do: 39 reviews and 67 photos
North of Lodève the current village huddles against the outcrop of Roc-Castel (752 m). Located on the northern edge of the department of Herault, it marks the border with the Aveyron department, starting a few miles away in La Pezade. This is the door of the Larzac plateau and the last station on the plateau, before descending to the Lodévois.
It has enough to make you want to stop and poke around for a while. Things such as the amazing sculpted tree, the rock itself and the mediaeval church.
The tourist information centre is tantalizingly situated in an old portal but was unfortunately closed when I was there because I'd arrived late.
Sheep breeding is the mainstay of the economy here, supplying wool, cheese and milk with agriculture delivering grain and fodder.
