Between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, in the heart of the sun baked Corbieres region of south-west France, this walk progresses from wild, lush countryside to mountains and sun-blessed vineyards, with a cultural heritage which derives from some of the most mysterious and dramatic pages of the history of France.
Along these ancient paths you will discover Cathar castles, perched precariously on the cliff edges, and small rural Pyrenean villages. This region full of charm also has its own culinary secrets, the Corbiere wines and typical dishes, like ‘cassoulet’, will leave a memorable reminder and a taste of a warm welcome.
