Recently had the chance to spend a day touring with Vin en Vacances I took the Cathar Castles tour which was amazing. Wendy is the perfect guide and knows her stuff when it comes to local history. After a magnificent lunch in the sunshine we visited Maury for a wine tasting where we learnt all about the making of their sweet wines. A fabulous day with interesting scenery, wines and people. I would highly recommend it.

13th century Occitan life was brought to life in a way I hadn’t thought possible. Everything top notch: castles, history, scenery, even the food and wine. Absolutely fascinating. The personal attention to the tour details and to ourselves was outstanding. James provided a wonderful balance of information on the Cathars along with general history of the region and to a host of other topics.
