Avène, The environment
A privileged location
Avène, nestled in the heart of « Hills and Springs » country, is located at the foot of the Cevennes mountains at 350 meters (1148 feet) elevation. The wonderful village of Avène lies in the bends of the Orb Valley, part of the Haut-Languedoc Natural Park between the mounts Espinousse and Escandorgue, in northern Herault. An area with a rich cultural and natural heritage.
Sunny and mild climate
The water divide line (between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic ocean) flows through the Haut-Languedoc Natural Park resulting in a double climatic influence, Atlantic and Mediterranean, and an exceptional biological and environmental diversity. Avène enjoys a mild and very sunny climate; nature, amazingly preserved, stands still.
Even though Avène Thermal Spring Water has yet to unveil all its secrets, most were uncovered in the past 30 years of research conducted by the Avène Dermatological Laboratories.
