One word - incredible. You will need to be fairly fit to get up to most of these, though even if you are not able to climb to the top it is worth going to the base and looking up - how on earth were they built?!! Peyrepertuse is the best preserved and just astonishing. From there Queribus can be seen in the distance, along with the ridges of mountains that have served as borders/frontiers between France and Spain over the decades. The terrain is beautiful, the views stunning, the history fascinating - even if you don't go into it very heavily, like me! It is so worth the effort to get to the castles - and the roads on the approach are just as worthwhile. A really beautiful part of France.
