La Coopérative - Musée Cérès Franco - Montolieu

8 km from Carcassonne, in Montolieu, a book village, La Coopérative (former village wine cooperative restored as an art center) hosts the impressive collection of brut, naive, unique and expressionist art gathered by Cérès Franco.

Since 2015, the Cérès Franco Collection has been housed in an exceptional setting: the former wine cooperative cellar of Montolieu. Resolutely international, the Cérès Franco Collection brings together around 2,000 works from the 20th and 21st centuries, some of which are presented each year on a different theme. Brazilian and European naivety, South American popular art, art brut, self-taught, singular, artists from the CoBra movement or the New Figuration, the provenance of the works reflects an eclectic and independent taste for an art situated on the fringes of the major artistic currents.
La Coopérative - Musée Cérès Franco - Montolieu
This collection reflects, with a rare coherence, the gaze of an audacious and demanding collector who has turned to intense works. Each year, therefore, a temporary exhibition, to be held from April 11th to November 1st, is organised with a guest curator who looks at this collection while engaging in a dialogue with other institutions or collections. 2020 is a very special year since it is Céres Franco's own daughter, Dominique Polad-Hardouin, who takes on this role and offers us an initiatory journey through 450 works and more than 150 artists...
  In the 18th century, Montolieu, a picturesque medieval village perched on a rocky spur between the Dure and Alzeau gorges, and the surrounding villages experienced economic prosperity with the textile and paper industries. Many mills were fed by the sometimes capricious rivers that flowed down from the Black Mountain. The rural exodus of the 19th century signalled the decline of the paper industry, the royal cloth factory and the agricultural and wine-growing industries. In the 1980s, a man, Michel Braibant, a bookbinder in Carcassonne, dreamt of reviving deserted alleyways.
La Coopérative - Musée Cérès Franco - Montolieu
He conceives a crazy project: to dedicate the village to the world of publishing and graphic arts. About 15 booksellers have been playing the game since then. The village, located 17 kilometres north-west of Carcassonne, welcomes every year several thousand visitors, simple curious, confirmed readers and collectors. Animations throughout the year and visits allow you to discover the work of the craftsmen: calligrapher, bookbinder, engraver, as well as the workshops for making books or paper. A book museum retraces the history of writing and printing. A fine example of reconversion and enhancement of local heritage.

Randonnée La Prise d'Alzeau et La Rigole de la Montagne Noire - Lacombe
 
 
  The Prise d' Alzeau and the Mountain Canal in the very heart of the Montagne Noire, «the source of the Canal du Midi» provides an important supply of water. It wasn’t until the 17th century, when Pierre Paul Riquet identified and harnessed the power of the small mountain streams so that collectively they could be used to generate a supply of water to the Canal du Midi. Thus Pierre Paul Riquet completed his greatest work, taking water from its source here in the Montagne Noire for the Canal du Midi in order to finally link the Atlantic and The Mediterranean Sea. The Galaube dam is part of the water management system of the Montagne Noire near Carcassone in Southern France. Reservoirs at the Saint Ferréol, Lampy and Cammazes dams already hold more than 35 million cubic metres of water for use as drinking water, irrigation in the three departments of Aude, Haute-Garonne and Tarn as well as regulating water levels in the Canal du Midi...

Casquette et Chapeau

Casquette et Chapeau - Montolieu



Casquette et Chapeau is a charming restaurant in the heart of Montolieu, le village du livre. It is typical of many such restaurants in villages across France, looking unremarkable and unexciting until you sample what it has to offer. Situated in a small square opposite the church, the best tables for lunch are outside under the shade of the plane trees, but the interior is also airy and welcoming. Service is as it should be, neither too fast nor too slow, and with just the right amount of attention. Remarkably, for France, customers without a reservation were welcomed at 2.00pm without fuss, which makes this restaurant even more exceptional than most...
