A stone's throw from Duilhac-Sous-Peyrepertuse, a small village dominated by its impressive castle, is a haven of freshness: the lake and the Moulin de Ribaute waterfalls. Ideal for a swim after visiting this unmissable site in Cathar Country!

Swimming in the Verdouble gorges

About 1 km from the village of Duilhac-sous-Peyrepertuse, the Verdouble gorges offer a swimming place very popular in the summer: the lake and waterfalls of the Ribaute mill. You can cool off in the river or admire the waterfalls and the potholes by going up the path that runs along the gorges. In season, the swimming is supervised. Picnic tables are welcome for lunch in this bucolic setting.

Convenient !

  • The Moulin de Ribaute site is accessible by vehicle, bicycle or on foot.
  • paid parking (€ 7 per day, € 3 after 17 p.m.), WC.
  • Getting to the car park of the Moulin de Ribaute.

Walk to the Verdouble waterfalls

If you feel like it, you can go to the Verdouble waterfalls by taking the marked Moulin de Ribaute hiking trail (4,9 km, 2 hours). The swimming break located 3/4 of the way will be even more appreciated!
