Historical Tours of Cathar Castles in deep rural France

What's Provided & What to Bring

The Languedoc is highly seasonal, but over the last few years weather has become less predictable. You should therefore bring a range of clothing, including waterproofs. You should also allow for extremely hot weather in the summer (light clothing, sun hats, sun cream, etc).

Some Cathar Castles are located on mountain tops. Climbs are not too demanding - 10-40 mins.

Safety precautions in France are not the same as those in most English speaking countries, so sturdy footware and hiking sticks are recommended as a few of the paths are very uneven.

Holiday Insurance is recommended, as is a mobile telephone (cellphone).


Other things you might find useful: camera, torch, binoculars, map of the languedoc, compass, books on the Cathars or Cathar Castles. (see Books)
