Cathar castles

Just a few kilometres from our hotel, stand the proud Cathar castles, stone sentinels that watch over the landscapes of Occitanie. Puivert, Lastours, Quéribus and many others await you for a plunge into history and a discovery of the secrets of Catharism.

These medieval fortresses, perched on rocky spurs, offer spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards, villages and mountains. Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of the Cathars, the religious movement that left its mark on the Middle Ages. Discover their way of life, their beliefs and their resistance to the Catholic Church. 

Numerous hiking trails allow you to discover the Cathar castles and enjoy the sublime landscapes of the Cathar country. 

A journey back in time!
