Discover Nature at it’s FinestA Walkers Paradise

The Cathar pathway passes behind our house and is easily accessible from our village. It is possible to walk from our house to Roquefixade, Foix or even Montsegur if you are really fit! There are many other walks in the area; in forests, beside streams and on the mountain tops so walkers of all abilities will find something to suit them.

Breath Taking Scenery  Castles And Nature

Foix

The castle, whose foundations date back to the early tenth century, was a strong fortress that withstood the repeated attacks of Simon de Montfort IV between 1211 and 1217, during the Albigensian Crusade. In 1272, when the Count of Foix refused to recognize the sovereignty of the king of France, Philip the Bold personally took the leadership of an expedition against the city, subsequently the earl surrendered.

Montségur

It is famous for its fortification, the Château de Montségur, that was built on the ruins of one of the last strongholds of the Cathars. The present fortress on the site, though described as one of the “Cathar castles,” is actually of a later period. It has been listed as a historic site by the French Ministry of Culture since 1862.
