L'Abbaye - Château de Camon - Camon

In the heart of a rebellious and sometimes violent Languedoc lies the château of Camon, a place of peace and tranquility.

Heir to a long monastic past, with the appearance of a manorial fortress, Camon invites us to experience a subtle mixture of history and architecture.

Our restaurant opened in June 2006 and has been a great success.

Dining in the wonderfully atmospheric cloisters in the summer or the intimate dining room in the cooler months, whatever the season, Tom Sleigh, our chef, cooks great food using superb local and seasonal ingredients.

For special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries and birthday parties, we can cater for up to 70 people in the cloisters and 20 people in the dining room.

We also have the Old Monks kitchen for a more informal rustic experience for up to 25 people...
  Specialities

If the exterior impresses us with both the majesty and severity of a fortified XVIth century palace, then the XVIIIth century interiors bear witness to a magnificence which justifies the power of the Abbey.

This beautiful location, where Aude and Ariège meet, was chosen as the site for a Benedictine Abbey.

L'Abbaye-Château de camon is situated in the beautifull village of Camon, less than 10 minutes away from the medival town of Mirepoix.

Camon, " The little Carcassonne" is an ancient fortified village.

In the heart of Cathar country this ancient monument dating back to the 10th Century is now a luxury Chambres d'Hôtes and a Restaurant (also available for exclusive use).

The château is available for exclusive use throughout the year. (including the winter months). The Château sleeps 29 people and our capacity for the ceremony is 70 guests.

Limoux

A.O.C. Limoux

Limoux is best known for its sparkling wine, Blanquette de Limoux. This is reputed to be the oldest sparkling wine in France and dates back to 1531 when Benedictine monks from Saint Hilaire Abbey discovered that the wine they had laid down had fermented and formed bubbles. This was the beginning of Limoux’s bubbly - the Blanquette de Limoux which was the first AOC to be created in the Languedoc area. The process (the locals say) was stolen by Dom Perignon who went on to create ‘champagne‘. however the Limoux sparkling wine is a very high quality champagne substitute and Crémant, which was developed in 1990, has a top class reputation. Now a prestigious event attracting buyers from all over the world, “Toques & Clochers” puts up for auction the most promising barrels of AOC Limoux. A share of the proceeds are then used to finance the renovation of bell towers in surrounding villages. Every year the auction is hosted by one of France’s great chefs popularly referred to as a “Toques”, the traditional white chef’s hat....


Malepère

A.O.C. Malepère

The Malepère region was awarded AOC status on May 2nd 2007. It is a hilly area south-west of the city of Carcassonne which is included in the appellation along with 31 other towns and villages. Although the area claims a great history of wine making it was in the 1970’s that the vineyards began to be replanted and VDQS status was granted. VDQS is the intermediary wine designation between Vin de Pays and AOC and is a testing ground for would-be AOC’s to prove that wines from all the producers share a common personality before they can be awarded full AOC status. Although an obscure region the Malepère is well worth a visit and offers a very different terrain to the more recognizable Languedoc appellations. There are many interesting medieval circular villages to visit. They were built this way to form ramparts to act as protection for the inhabitants. The Cathar religion was strong here and the area is immersed in history and folklore...

Fanjeaux

Fanjeaux

Fanjeaux is an historic mediaeval hilltop village with 16th c. market place and a Belevedere giving spectacular views over the Lauragais plain. It is hard to imagine that this sleepy little town with only 900 inhabitants was a busy commercial and social center of 3,000 people during the time of Saint Dominic. When he arrived on foot with the Bishop of Osma in 1206, Fanjeaux’s narrow streets must have been filled with peddlers, pilgrims, farmers and even soldiers. The women would gather to wash their clothes on the stones at the edge of a spring where a washing place still stands today...


Château
de Montségur

Château de Montségur - Montségur

The Château de Montségur is probably the best known of all Cathar Castles. It is famous as the last Cathar stronghold, which fell after a 10 month siege in 1244. A field below the hill-top castle is reputed to be the site where over 200 Cathars were burned alive, having refused to renounce their faith. A building on this site sheltered a community of Cathar women at the end of the twelfth century. Early in the thirteenth, Ramon de Pereille the co-seigneur and Chatelaine, was asked to make it defensible, anticipating the problems to come. It is open to the public, as is a museum in the nearby modern village of Montségur. There is an entrance fee for both....

Château de Puivert

Château de Puivert - Puivert

Puivert Castle, locally known as Château de Puivert, lies near the village with the same name, west of the town of Quillan in the Languedoc-Roussillion region in France. Of all the Cathares castles, Puivert Castle certainly is one of the best preserved. It was built in the 14th century. With its 35 meters high keep in which four splendid rooms are superimposed, its 6 towers incorporated in its enclosure wall, this castle dominates the old glacial lake of Puivert below. One of the rooms in the keep has very nice carvings of 8 characters with medieval musical instruments on its walls. You can climb to the top of the keep which offers a great view on the Quercorb plain to north, to the west of Montségur Castle with the summits of the Pyrenees behind it and to the east of the peak of Bugarach...


Monastère de Prouilhe

Monastère de Prouilhe - Fanjeaux

The Dominican nuns are indeed the elder sisters of the Dominican family, having been founded nearly ten years before the Order of Preachers came into being. Their first site, Prouilhe, was initially a refuelling stop for priests combating the heresy of Catharism in southwest France. (Catharism was an anti-Catholic, ascetic movement that saw the world as evil and denied the Trinity and the divinity of Christ). This first monastery at Prouilhe was essentially a work of mercy on the part of Dominic, not the fulfilment of some abstract dream about the beauty of enclosed contemplative life. It was a practical response to an urgent pastoral need. What was he to do with the small group of Cathar women he had converted at Fanjeaux, and how could he stop other young women from impoverished Catholic families from being seduced into heresy through the free education the Cathars offered? Obviously a safe house was necessary. A monastic community grew out of these unpromising beginnings, thanks to donations of land and goods and to willing lay helpers...


Musée du Quercorb

Musée du Quercorb - Puivert

The Quercorb Museum, with its attractive displays, allows you to discover this fascinating little region. Visual and sound exhibits recreate everyday life in Quercorb at the beginning of the 20th century.

You can use headphones to listen to 9 Occitan troubadour "cansos" while you follow the words and medieval music reconstructed on goatskin parchment. In the museum orchard there are displays including a still and a collection of objects related to harvesting fruit and processing it into fruit brand...
