Part Three of My France Field Trip is about all the things to see and do along part of the Cathar Trail in Languedoc-Roussillon. Just as I did on my trip, the areas I cover are mostly towards the far west end of the Trail near the Mediterranean coast. I cover from Rivesaltes (north of Perpignan) to Maury to Puilaurens, about 2 hours inland.
The article includes information on a few of the Cathar Castles, a link to the Association du Pays Cathare web site with info on all the Cathar sites, and the two I visited the day I covered this swath, Domaine Cazes (which you can buy at Whole Foods), and Domaine Pouderoux. A little beach, a little hiking, a little wine. Pretty much perfect. Enjoy!
