Château de Termes - Termes

The site of Termes includes a charming small village, near two spectacular gorges, and of course, the rests of one of the best known fortresses of the history of the Crusade against the Cathars.

We are not far away from the castles of Villerouge-Termenès and Arques nor from the village and abbey of Lagrasse as well.

The castle of Termes was the administrative center of an important territorial district in XI th -XIII th centuries. The lords of Termes managed a powerful fortified village, under the donjon, and they showed themselves tolerant to the cathar heretics.

800 years ago, during the crusade against the cathars, the siege of Termes in 1210 by the army of Simon de Montfort made Termes famous: it was one of the longest sieges of this 20 years long war (1209-1229).

At the end of the XIII° century, the castle was reorganized by the French royal power. From then, Termes was one of the castles wich protected France against spain : The " Five sons of Carcassonne".
  Specialties

Destroyed by the french authority in 1654, the castle of Termes remained abandoned until the XXth century.

But since 1989, conservative workings are done. The current archaeological excavations wich are now made every year since 2005 allows a beter understanding of the history of the castle. These discoveries as well as the efforts made to improve the comfort of the visit, brings the castle out of the forgetting.

The remembrance, 800 years later, of the Albigensian crusade, and the siege of the castle of Termes, is an opportunity to propose you even more : the contents of the visit grows rich:
- a short film "Termes, the impregnable ?" allows to start your visit.
- an exhibition "1210, the siege of the castle of Termes" gives all about this event of the XIII th century.
- the paper-guide which is lent to you for the time of your visit is renewed last year...

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...


Organic Wine

Organic Wine

The cornerstone of organic farming is the soil. Maintaining a healthy, biologically active soil is the main objective for an organic farmer. In the vineyard it means cultivating the soil and planting cover crops, instead of applying herbicides. It means using natural fertilizers, such as composted animal manure, versus chemical fertilizers. Organic growers use no synthetic growth-regulators (such as Alar). As for not using pesticides, the organic alternative is to encourage natural predators of insect pests instead of using poisonous insecticides. Organic farmers promote "biodiversity" and allow plants other than vines to grow in and around the vineyard. Biodiversity helps regulate the vineyard soil by attracting beneficial insects, spiders and predatory mites, as well as provide shelter and food (pollen, nectar and other bugs), and replaces the need for chemical pesticides or insecticides. What cannot be fully controlled through biodiversity can still be managed organically, through the use of naturally occurring plant or mineral extracts, which leave no residues in the soil. In wet climates the main difficulty is raised by the use of copper sulfate against mildew, which leaves over time levels of copper in the soil that need to be monitored....
