In the southern region of France, you will find the Herault department. You can stay in a discount hotel in Saint-Pons-de-Thomiere in order to have a good base for exploring the Herault region. The town of Saint-Pons-de-Thomieres is named for the patron saint, St. Pontius, though in France you will hear him referred to as Pons de Cimiez. Saint Pontius was martyred by the Emperor Valerian and the Abbey of Saint-Pons was first built in Saint-Pons-de-Thomieres in 936 C.E. In 1318 the abbey was declared an Episcopal see and the Cathedral of Saint-Pons-de-Thomiere was built. However, the structure you’ll see today is mainly from the 18th century.
From your budget hotel in Saint-Pons-de-Thomieres you can easily reach a number of other sites in the region. The Cirque de Moureze, commonly called le Sphynx, is an unusual rock formation in the nearby countryside. The beaches of La Grande-Motte, Palavas-les-Flots, Carnon and others are within an easy drive. Or, visit the caves of Clamouse or the caves of Demoiselles.
