From the Mediterranean to the Pyrenees Ariegeoises in the heart of the sun blessed Corbieres region, or between Montségur and Foix is where you can find the secret trails and castles of the chateaux Cathars. Imposing stone castles built high up in rocky crags or pogs.  These fortresses are the symbol of a tragic, political intrigue and drama that shook the South of France. This walking holiday combines a historical interest that stirs the imagination as well as some memorable walking through lush unspoilt mountains and valleys.
