Grotte de Limousis - Limousis

The history of Grotte de Limousis goes back to the mists of time. It was a shelter under the rock used by both prehistoric men and Cave Bears. It has always been a refuge for men.

Fancy a bit of freshness? We invite you to discover the cave Limousis, 20 kilometers northeast of Carcassonne and penetrate into the bowels of the earth.

Discovered in 1811, the cave, carved by a river has been electrified and fitted in 1935.

However, it was modernized in 1973 to its current appearance.

The eighth and final room contains a unique mineral formation, a chandelier of aragonite to 4 meters high and 10 meters in circumference, a real treasure...
  Specialities

Aude - D 511

This cave dates back at least to the Neolithic Period, when it was inhabited by man. It was also used in Roman times and in the Middle-Ages. The cave was formed from limestone in the primary era, and hollowed out by an underground river.

The Chandelier room is quite famous in the region. Equally important are the numerous stalactites, stalagmites, draperies, discs and pendeloques. The cave also has remains of cave bears, as well as an underground lake.....

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...

Le Mont Sarrat
 
 
Randonnée Le Mont Sarrat - Pradelles-Cabardès
 
 
  This walk will introduce you to the Pas de Mont Sarrat where remarkable traces of cart wheels are printed in limestone. At the time this Roman road was used for routing Pradelles ice packs to the plain. At the Montagne Noire are many different walks, 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 is no horeca, 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...

Every meal in France is a celebration. Count on at least an hour and a half...
