Grotte de l'Aguzou - Escouloubre

The Aguzou cave is remarkable for its beauty and its mineral profusion. Unusual visits are proposed in the form of subterranean walks.
The Aguzou cave has not been specially fitted out for public visits, as it is far too fragile. Visits are therefore organised in small groups and last for a whole day. The cave is thus protected and everyone can admire the profusion, variety and beauty of the classic and also the more subtle speleothems. A few difficult passages are equipped with fixed ladders, ropes etc..., designed more for security reasons than for comfort.

Departure is fixed for 9 a.m. at the starting point as indicated on the side D.118 road (except in July and August, when the departure is from Usson). There, we will kit you out with a boiler suit, helmet, electric light and a belt. There is one guide for a group of 8 -12 people, each carrying their own picnic lunch..
  Specialities

The first part of the visit, until midday, takes in classical features: vast chambers, huge stalagmites, sometimes 20 metres high, curtains of stalactites hanging overhead. The lunch is by candlelight, using chairs and tables in a heated enclosure (the temperature can rise to 13 °C, though it is 8,5 °C in the rest of the cave). We offer you coffee or tea. In the afternoon, no more obstacles, just pleasure for the eyes, the senses and the camera. A stroll along a path between two ribbons, around a succession of gardens, each 3 to 4 metres long, containing geometric crystals with plane facets, where the angles at the summit are identical for all similar crystals of the same rimstone pools (gours). Ornate flowers underfoot, aragonite on the ceiling, long white fibres in the form of sea urchins, powder-puffs and fans and, on the walls, all the forms that you have already seen: stalactites, stalagmites, draperies, eccentrics. There are also numerous prismatic candles and hollow triangles of calcite, which are extremely rare. You will see the "Flower Gallery", the "Chamber of the 1001 Nights", the "Chamber of the Queen's Crown" and many others. Return is scheduled for 5 p.m: after 7 hours underground you will leave with impression that is was only three. We will almost have to push you out!

Corbières

A.O.C. Corbières

The Corbières is one of the wildest areas of France with one of the lowest population densities. It is picturesque with wine growing areas alternating with garigue and mountainous countryside. It is located mainly in the Aude département and partly in the Pyrénées-Orientales département. The River Aude borders the Corbières to the west and north. To the south is the River Agly and to the east the the Mediterranean Sea. The name Corbières comes from "cor" a pre-Celtic word meaning "rock" and "berre" from the River Berre which runs through Durban. The eastern part of the Corbières with its Etangs, borders the the Mediterranean Sea and is called the Corbières maritimes. It has its own distinctive climate and characteristic vegetation known as thermomediterranean vegetation...


Vin de Pays d’Oc,
Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays d’Oc, Vin de Pays de l’Aude

Vin de Pays means 'country wine' to the French, but to outsiders it can mean New World with a French accent. These are the wines which the French authorities unreservedly allow to be labelled with the grape variety from which they were made. It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of this large and growing category of wines for the future of the French wine trade. The French themselves may have tended to see any Vin de Pays as distinctly inferior to any appellation contrôlée wine, whereas many of their customers abroad see the better Vins de Pays as good-value, user-friendly, sometimes high-quality non-conformist emissaries from the world's most revered wine producer....
