“This is one of the closest 'Cathar Castles' near us and is the sight of one of the most famous sieges during the persecution and crusades again the religious sects. There's lot's of parking and the climb, while steep is worth it for both the views and the ruin itself. There is a small entrance fee to get into the site but it also allows you in to the museum in the village below where you get a really good understanding of how so many people both lived and survived on the site during the siege. There are also some nice places to eat and relax in the village, after visiting the ruin.”

“This is our favourite lake for swimming and picnics. The setting is beautiful at any time of the year. In the Summer we go to swim, although it is possible to hire a pedalo or kayak. There are some lovely picnic spots around the lake and plenty of free parking. There is a path around the lake for walkers or cyclists. There are bars and restaurants on the edge of the lake and we can recommend places to eat or for a drink.”

“En déambulant dans le Château, on pourrait croire que le célèbre Gaston Fébus et sa cour occupent encore les lieux ! Dans chaque pièce, meubles, sièges, tables, lits et armes sont installés pour lui redonner tout son faste d’antan. Tous plus réalistes les uns que les autres, ils sont réalisés, sur mesure, après un long travail de recherche archivistique et d’inventaire des différentes collections médiévales connues.”
