A visit to Puilaurens!!

It's not often we can manage to get a day out in the season, but today although we are full we have no departures, no new arrivals and aren't cooking dinner, so we decided to sneek off for a bit of sightseeing.

One of the nearest Cathar castles to us is Puilaurens, but possibly due to it's proximity to Peyrepertuse and Queribus, two of the most popular castles, it is often overlooked for a visit. What a mistake - it's spectacular!


The scenic drive from Maison Laurent took about thirty minutes along the D118 and D117 via Alet le Bains, Couiza and Quillan. No queues, no parking problems and an relatively easy climb to the summit for spectacular views - and on a beautiful day.

Maison Laurent is really well situated for visiting the Cathar Castles and sights of the Languedoc; sometimes we even get to see them ourselves!
