Wonderful Gite d'etape for a lovely lunch, fabulous views, beautiful wild flowers. It is a short but steep climb to the castle, but worth it.

It is a lovely castle, or rather lovely ruins of the castle. It is not one of the main attractions of the region so you can visit it without any queues or crowds. However, not the whole part of ruins is open to visit. The...More

A nice village and above it the ruins of a castle. Be careful when visiting the ruins it may be a little bit dangerous (you may fall). If you're interested there is a place for climbing on the path to the castle.

We went to Roquefixade on the way to the caves in Niaux. A stunning place. The village is lovely, and the climb to the castle is around 20 mins. The view of the valley is amazing, and the castle ruins on top has a romantic...More
