Activities

There are tennis courts in Mirepoix, international Go-Kart track and riding stables nearby, parachuting centre in Les Pujols, and a good golf course less than an hour away at Carcassonne. You can swim and windsurf in the huge Lac de Montbel, 10 kms away, which also has a bird sanctuary.

There are a number of restaurants within an easy drive, with generous, reasonably priced menus and the red and rosé wines of the Corbières and Minervois. A famous local dish is cassoulet, a hearty bean stew with duck and Toulouse sausage, which originated in Castelnaudry.

Locally, there is the extraordinary cave church in Vals and the underground river of Labouiche, or the fortified village of Camon with its Festival of Roses in June, and the romantic château at Puivert, 30 kms away.

The gaunt remains of the fortress château at Montségur (35 kms) looms on a precipitous rocky pinnacle above the village nestling beneath it and is the symbol of ancient Cathar resistance.
