La Maison du Malpas Colombiers Reviews
Informative and helpful Jun 08, 2012
La Maison du Malpas is a tourist and cultural centre for the community of eight villages (Cazouls les-Béziers, Maraussan, Maureilhan, Montady, Colombiers, Nissan les-Ensérune, Lespignan and Vendres).
This information centre provides information about local sites like the Oppidum d´Enseérune, the dried up lake of Montady, the Canal du Midi, the Malpas tunnel and the 8 villages, as well as information on hiking paths around La Domitienne. They also arrange guided tours. They have a multimedia area where they arrange conferences and various gatherings.
The centre has plenty of brochures, leaflets and maps, which are free and booklets, books and postcards for sale. There is an interesting model of the site where one can see how the different “layers” of A Roman road, Canal du Midi, a railway tunnel and a draining system goes through the hill Ensérune. It´s also a little café selling local biscuits, cakes and coffee. You can also buy local wine there.
The staff was very nice, friendly and helpful and they were fluent in English.
