Cazedarnes is a typical wine-growing village. It is accessed from Béziers via Cazouls les Béziers. The village has grown considerably thanks to many new inhabitants attracted by the calm and authenticity.
The Saint Amand church dedicated to Saint Roch houses frescoes by Nicolai Greschny, it is the subject of major work which will ultimately allow these magnificent works to be discovered (frescoes painted between 1951 and 1960).
From the village center you can follow the walking route “the Puech of the Negro Vine”. Here, scrubland and low walls outline the contours of a preserved Mediterranean landscape.

This is the so-called “Chemin de Fontcaude” or GR 787 ramp which connects the GR 653 to the GR 78 (from Gervais sur Mare to Capestang). We are 6.5 km from Puisserguier and 13.5 km from Capestang.
Away from the village, scrubland, low walls (pronounce the "t" to speak like a native) and Saint-Chinian appellation vineyards draw the contours of a breathtaking Mediterranean landscape.
