Nouvelle-Aquitaine Loupian Roman Villa

Loupian Roman Villa (Villa-Loupian) is the remains of a 5th century Roman villa with beautiful and well preserved mosaic floors. The villa was discovered under a farm field and many parts of the mosaics were damaged, but they saved what they could and reconstructed the walls of the villa so you see the layout of the rooms. They put a building around the villa to protect it. Highly recommended - beautiful, detailed mosaics.

We arrived in the late afternoon in time for the last tour and since we were the only ones there, the guide gave us the tour in English. The guide takes you into the big building and you walk around on a platform above the mosaics. Our guide gave us good information about the villa and how it was used and about the style of mosaics.

Location: France - Novelle-Aquitaine - Herault - Loupian
Check the opening hours before you visit. When we were there it was open only in the afternoon, with tours on the hour.
