Mas-Cabardès - Le circuit des quatre villages

On the border of the Tarn and Aude, this circuit allows you to discover four authentic villages preserved in their green setting: Mas-Cabardès, the starting point, Roquefère and its castle, Miraval and La Tourette. Most of the walk is carried out in the scrubland, but the first part of the walk offers a beautiful view of the plain of Carcassonne, the Corbières and the Pyrenees in the background.

(D/A) Exit the car park, follow the D101 to the right for about thirty meters, then turn right to cross the bridge over the Orbiel. Follow the narrow street and cross another bridge at the exit of the village. Yellow and green markings - old and sporadic.
(1) Cross the D101 (be careful because this is in the middle of a bend) and go opposite it, at the corner of the house, on a narrow stony path. 100m further, fork to the right and continue on the path that passes beautiful dry stone walls and eventually leads to the D9. Follow the road to the left, observing the warning rules in force, to an intersection marked with a metal cross (parking for walkers on the other side of the road). Yellow markers.
(2) Leave the road and take the path on the left. 200m further, leave a path going up on the left (wooden barriers) and continue until you reach a small paved road at the entrance of the village of Roquefère. We then enjoy a beautiful view of the castle. No marking. Turn right and immediately left onto the found D9. Cross the bridge and go up the stairs to the left just before the church. Pass under a stone arch and descend to arrive at a small stone bridge that must be crossed. Go a few yards to the right to the small wash house, then turn back and take the small cobbled street, going up steeply to the right. The latter gives way to a path that quickly connects to the road that leads to Saint-Julien. Yellow markers
(3) Cross and take a narrow path opposite, the beginning of which is indicated by the inscription "Saint-Julien" on a slate.
   (4) At the fork, follow the yellow markings and the fork to the left. Continue straight to reach the wide, partially paved path that serves the Houstals Nauts and follow it on the left until the next intersection.
(5) Turn right (sign Cubserviès). The path crosses a beautiful airy undergrowth by making a number of more or less pronounced bends, then turns right at a sharp angle and goes up a short meadow to the Dolmen de Ventajou.
(6) A stop is essential to fully enjoy the view of the Pyrenees and Corbières. Then continue on the marked path and come to a fork not shown on the IGN map. Turn right and join a wide, stabilized track that takes you to a major intersection.
(7) Turn left (Cubserviès sign) and follow the path to get to the crossroads of Plo Saint-Martin (Vierge on the right, slightly hidden by the branches of the trees around it). Yellow + yellow and green markings, both old and quite sparse. Continue straight ahead, follow the double markings and the sign "La Tourette par Miraval" to reach a new intersection on hill 797.
(8) When branching to the left and at the first marked right turn, leave the track for a wide grassy path to the left. Pass an unattractive structure at these places, keep joining the track for about 500m and follow it to the left until a large star-shaped intersection.
(9) Ignore the paths left and right and take the road opposite. At a place called Le Carnier, when the path goes up to the right, turn left downhill (sign "La Tourette par Miraval" in bad condition). Vertaaltypen Tekstvertaling Brontekst Bifurquer à gauche puis, dans le premier virage marqué à droite, quitter la piste pour un large sentier enherbé à gauche. Passer une construction peu esthétique en ces lieux, poursuivre pour rejoindre la piste 500m plus loin environ et la suivre à gauche jusqu'à un grand carrefour en étoile. 1749 / 5000 Vertaalresultaten
(10) At the fork, continue to the left on the path which descends steeply at the beginning and then becomes quiet again before reaching Miraval. Once at the tarmac, continue towards the village, cross the bridge on the left and reach the foot of the Notre-Dame de la Lauze church.

(11) Take the stairs to the right, pass the entrance of the church and follow the narrow path that climbs steeply into the forest.
(12) At the intersection, fork to the right (the path that comes from the right before this intersection and that appears on the IGN map). At the top of a steep hill (hill 536), do not climb further to the right, but descend slightly to the left. Be careful as there is no visible mark in this location. Continue to the road (D9).
(13) Follow this road to the right, be careful as there is no shoulder and reach the main square of La Tourette. Continue to the right, passing the church in height (not accessible to visitors as it is being restored) then take the first cobbled street steeply up to the right which then turns into a wide grassy path. Turn right onto a path, continue into the undergrowth past a large mowing area on the left and reach a major intersection. Yellow and green markers.
(14) Turn left, merge onto D9, cross over (be careful) and walk opposite to get to a spot with just cleared sides, a hundred meters further. Yellow mark for a hundred meters, then no mark.
(15) Leave the wide path and the yellow markers to go straight ahead to split to the left on a path down. At the next intersection, go straight ahead and reach a hole with an inconspicuous branch a hundred meters ahead (be careful not to miss it).
(16) Let the wide path go up to the right and split to the left on the path, the beginning of which is quite difficult to see. The latter widens and begins to descend quite sharply, crossing several thick mats of dead leaves that require attention as they hide the stones on the ground and can lead to sprains. We reach Mas-Cabardès at the level of an asphalted street. Turn left, pass the car park and turn right into Rue du Colombin which leads to the D101. The car park is about a hundred yards on the right (D/A).

de Lastours

Les Quatre Châteaux de Lastours

Built on the top of bedrock at 300m above sea level, the four towers of the site of Lastours (Cabaret, Tour Régine, and Surdespine Quertinheux) proudly dominate the course of Orbiel (the river of olive trees) and the torrent Grésilhou in a wild landscape bristling with cypress. Lock Cabardès since the early Middle Ages, they controlled one of the main pathways in the Cabardès and the Black Mountain and took all their importance at the time of the crusade against the Albigensians. Archaeological excavations carried out since 1980 under the direction of Marie-Elise Gardel, have helped to uncover the medieval village of Cabaret, the Mecca of Catharism and the resistance against the Crusader armies. This ancient fortified settlement called " Castrum ", consisted of a hundred houses and many forges. These places were abandoned abruptly without the inhabitants were able to take any object.

Mas-Cabardès

Mas-Cabardès

Mas Cabardès is a village in the Montagne Noire with about 200 inhabitants all year round. In the summer there is a significant increase in the population due to the summer visitors. There are also a number of expats who own houses in Mas Cabardes. The only common factor is their love for the village and respect for the original inhabitants. Noteworthy is the church of Saint Etienne which was probably built on the site of an old Benedictine monastery known as St Etienne de Cabaret and is mentioned in documents from the first half of the 9th century. Little has remained, except for the name of one of the adjoining properties, "la Claustre" - the monasteries. The current building dates from the late Gothic period. In the left column of the triumphal arch a year is carved: 1548. This undoubtedly refers to the year in which the apse was completed in a flamboyant style. Certain architectural features that can be seen in the nave or on the outside of the church may date back to the 16th century, such as the inset columns or carved stones reused from the original construction. The apse's lack of symmetry is remarkable. For the rest, Mas Cabardès is a peaceful sleepy village...

Le Diable au Thym

Le Diable au Thym - Lastours



Restaurant Le Puits du Trésor and Auberge du Diable au Thym are created by a young and promising Chef, Jean Marc Boyer. He took this rather risky bet in 2002: open a gourmet restaurant in a somewhat isolated place. And he turned it into a success! When you taste the cuisine here now, see the place that is modern and traditional all in one go you clearly see it. The cuisine is refined, delicated, generous, a cuisine that has gourmets from around here and elsewhere coming in great numbers. This is a promising address that has more than one trick in store for you! A well of flavours and scents that we encourage you to discover close to Lastours. Modern and pleasant with a very large terrace overlooking the river and overhanging the 4 Cathar castles. The compositions are often renewed to surprise you and charm you several times...
