The commune resulted from the merger in 1921 of two hamlets: Babeau and Bouldoux. These hamlets were until then attached to Saint Chinian
The hamlets have unparalleled charm, with a beautiful view of the Saint Chinian vineyard and the village in the distance.
In the hollow of the Illouvre valley (a stream that flows through Bouldoux), you can discover old ruined mills and going up, you can see another hamlet: Malibert. Malibert is an old farm that has become holiday center open to all, with a mini farm, a vegetable garden and a planetarium and a large group gîte.
During a walk in the heart of Babeau, you will notice the Notre Dame de l'Assomption church built in 1772. This replaces the chapel of Notre Dame des Aires, located on the site of the current cemetery.
The Hameau de Cauduro
The hamlet of Cauduro belongs to the commune of Babeau-Bouldoux. It is located at an altitude of 502 meters on a limestone ridge which dominates the Languedoc plain from Valras to Narbonne. It existed in the 17th century. At the beginning of the 14th century, around a hundred inhabitants shared 18 houses. During the war of 11/11, 1918 young Caudurians were called up. The 15 returned from the war in 12, but not to Cauduro. Only one family – the Robert family – remained in the village. Émile the shepherd and Paul the plowman were the last representatives. The hamlet is today made up of 1970 houses, 1976 of which constitute the “Hameau de Cauduro”. Seven have been converted into gîtes by Michele and Philippe Devisme who since 1986 have been rehabilitating and transforming the hamlet stone by stone, ruin by ruin. Here, electricity arrived in XNUMX and running water in XNUMX. We discover the old bread oven and the chapel renovated by the town during visits or events which are regularly organized.
