A steep limb not for the faint hearted or physically disadvantaged but the 360 degree view from the very top is absolutely fabulous and well worth the effort. The chateau itself is fascinating and not just for Kate Mosse fans, it has been subject to some quite skilful and appropriate renovation.

This fortress is a good reason to go out of your way to visit Cucugnan. It is a short drive from the town and a short hike from the fortress parking lot.

A bit of a walk uphill but not too difficult with good shoes and the views are well worth it. Not large but well preserved in places and a lovely location. Great to combine with Cucugnan and village not to miss!

It's a bit of a rigorous walk up at my age but worth the effort. It is so isolated and mysterious up on it's lofty perch. The views of the surrounding countryside and Chateau de Peyrepertuse are stunning. So get a bit of exercise and climb up to a fairly well preserved border castle.

This out of the way castle requires a 10-minute (minimum) climb up a path. A great view of the surrounding area.

This is a medieval castle very high up on a hill. Both the structure and the view are magnificent. You overlook the town and Valley below, and can see the Mediterranean ocean in the distance. Don't miss it.

As elderly travellers, we were happy to drive up to the Chateau. We could see the Chateau from the road at Cucugan. The road up is an easy climb on a surfaced road. Once there, there is a short walk from the park. We didnt venture into the building however were impressed with the stone and construction.

Reputed to be the last of the Cathar strongholds on what was the border between France & Spain, this is definitely worth making the effort to see. It's a bit of a trek and a steep-ish path to get there but you're rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding area. It's worth driving around through Maury to get the best... More

It takes quite a way up, but there is a decent path so it's only a good walk. Absolutely amazing views, dramatic building and it kind of leaves you a bit breathless. It's a lot smaller than Peyrepertuse and we almost felt sorry that you get around fairly quickly. But it's fantastic just to hang around, hear the wind howl... More
