Typical Fenouilledes village, Saint- Martin is situated on the hillside.

Bounded on the north by a line of limestone peaks whose heights exceed 600 meters, the territory consists of a wooded area called Devès and a granite area where the village and the former stronghold of Taïchac are to be found. Further south is an area of Gneiss ( a metamorphic rock form) and to the west , a plateau called Dallen. A reminder of the old name of the village : Saint -Martin- d'Endalens ( thirteenth century).

The morphology and geology of the area reveal the meeting of Afro- Iberian and European tectonic plates.

To introduce you to the geomorphology, a trail of geological interest called "Hauts de Taïchac " was laid with as the starting point at the Auberge Taïchac in the village center . This trail is accessible for anyone to discover the exceptional views of the syncline of St. Paul.

The hostel is also a ‘gites d’etape’ where you can stay and discover the GR36 footpath, other outdoor activities and high-quality wines produced in the vineyards of St Martin.
