We visited on 6th October. It was windy at our villa much lower down in the mountains but we did not think about how it would be 2000 feet up! We went to the beautiful village of Cucugnan first for coffee and saw lots of...More

With Peyrepteruse, you have a "15 minute walk" (more like 30 minutes) on a rocky trail to the entrance. The site is spread out and requires quite a lot of walking / climbing to see the whole thing. The layout here is relatively user friendly:...More

Stunning fort/castle perched on top of the mountain, takes about 10 mins or so to walk to the lower part of the castle from the car park. But it was very windy when we visited- the lady at the ticket office warned us but as...More

This chateau, together with the higher and more difficult to climb, Perpeyteuse, are essential if you want to see how the Cathars held out against the Albigensian crusade during the Middle Ages. Both of these chateaux--really forts--were very small in area and couldn't have held...More

After a steep drive up to the car park and then a steep 10-15 minute walk we were rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Although the castle is a ruin, enough still remains to allow you to imagine what life would have been...More

We were on the road just south of here and decided to drive up to see the old ruins. There is a lovely windmill there too. We opted not to hike up to the actual ruins, but were glad we saw them from the parking...More

This was a nice Cathare castle to visit. The walk up to the castle is not to long, as the parking it already a good way up. The view is nice and the castle is well kept. You can also see the village of Cucugnan...More

I think this cost around six euros. The car park is basically a narrowish slope not too far from the castle. The walk up is a lot easier than for the Cháteau Peyrepertuset and even Puilaurens. It was very windy and so it was quite...More

It takes about 10 minutes to walk up a steepish path but when you get there it does take much imagination to feel how it must have been like in its day. If you enjoy history this is a must and if you don't it...More
