Randonnée La Rivière de la Dure - Caudebronde

Caudebronde is situated in southern France in the Aude department of Languedoc. In 2008 Aude was voted in the French press as the most desirable department in which to live. The village is in a gorge on the banks of the River Dure beneath the main N118 Route de Mazamet and the departmental D62 road runs through the village but is hardly ever used. It is almost equidistant between Carcassonne and Mazamet, each being about 23km distant, or a 25-minute drive away. The village lies at around 550m elevation on the southern slopes of the Montagne Noire, a much ignored area to the north of Carcassonne and the precursor to the Massif Central. The village has been described as one of the prettiest in the region. The surrounding area is a hillwalker's paradise and a very popular region for cyclists.

The territory of Caudebronde had ever many slate quarries - the Lauzières. Slate is used on a large scale for roofing, in that it is strong and has thermal properties (protection against summer heat and the cold of the mountains), and the use of slate is very practical. Still a few "Lauzeurs" practice this craft which is often taught from father to son ... (The Lauzeron is an employee at the quarry. To edit masses large plates, delicate parts slate of several centimeters thick. Unfortunately, a technique which is deteriorating with time!

Caudebronde, discrete...by its eccentric position of the road network, and yet so close. It remains a little secret village that everyone will make fun of well maintained alleys, beautiful landscaped gardens, a dominant bell tower and in first place the river la Dure. Here everything is in peaceful rest...
  From Caudebronde you can choose from several walks! We have to put together a loop walk which La Rivière de la Dure is centered and where you can admire the surroundings of Caudebronde! The starting point for this marked route is at Place des Tilleuls in Caudebronde.

There are so many different walks, too much for one holiday only. A very good map is the IGN-map 2344E of the Série Bleu (Mazamet). It is important to carry a compass, water, some food and tissues, and wear good walking shoes, a hat or cap and perhaps even carry a good walking stick. This is rough nature. There are no McDonald's, or toilets or even benches. These walks go over ancient paths, perhaps even millennia old, because also in prehistory, men travelled on these paths through the mountains.

This is rough nature. There are no McDonald's, or toilets or even benches. These walks go over ancient paths, perhaps even millennia old, because also in prehistory, men travelled on these paths through the mountains.

Apart from nature, also history is an important goal for many people's holiday. And apart from nature and history, the mountains also have several beautiful lakes offering refreshment on a hot day. One of these lakes is Lac Birotos in Pradelles-Cabardès, with a nice little beach and clear water

Cabardès

A.O.C. Cabardès

The Cabardès region is situated to the west of Languedoc and to the south of the central massif, a geologist's dream, balanced between east and west, the sun and the coolness, the heathland and the mountain. It is here that the winds cross. They bring the intense mediterranean heat necessary for southern "cépages" (grape types) such as syrah and grenache, and the cool atlantic humidity for the ocean "cépages": merlot, cabernet-sauvignon, cabernet-franc, cot and fer-servadou, to prosper. The vineyards and wines of Cabardès have been recognized as AOC since february 1999. The quality of the grapes, the wine-making, the blending of the "cépages" and the keeping of the wines has allowed us to obtain the best balance between fruit and structure, fullness and complexity, intensity and elegance. Cabardès assembles 30 châteaux and domaines over 500 productive hectares spread amongst 18 villages. 20000 hectolitres are produced each year,of which 60% are exported....


Minervois

A.O.C. Minervois

The Minervois is one of the most ancient vineyards of the Mediterranean region. Indeed, its land was chosen by the Romans as providing ideal conditions for the first vines they planted in Languedoc Roussillon. Its name comes from the ancient city of Minerve, a stronghold built by the Romans and dedicated to the goddess Minerva. Since that time, many amphora shards and vestiges of cellars have been discovered, testimony to the importance of this vineyard. The region, austere in winter and redolent with sunshine in summer, has survived over the centuries its invasions by barbarians, Arabs and Christians. The essence of Minervois la Livinière, as in so many Midi appellations, is the blend; a marriage of different grape varieties that adds subtle nuance of flavour to the whole. Natural alcohol level must reach a minimum of 12% without enrichment (so no chaptalisation) and maximum yield is a modest 45 hl/ha. Ageing may be in barrel or vat, and unlike basic Minervois, the wine must be bottled at source, so cannot be sent off to a négociant elsewhere in France...
