The temperature is rising, the sun is blazing… What can you do when it's hot? Here are some suggested activities.
Visit the castle of Villerouge-Termenès
The old stones restore their freshness. It's always good inside Villerouge-Termenès castle. This is an opportunity to visit this Cathar Country site and hear the story of Guilhem Bélibaste, the last “perfect” Cathar.
Before or after the visit, take a seat on the terrace at the foot of the castle with a cold drink or a seasonal plate or have lunch at the table of the Medieval rotisserie, in a wing of the castle.
Here are some other ideas for places to visit to stay safe from the heat: Lagrasse Abbey (public and private part) or the former cooperative cellar of Ferrals-les-Corbières rehabilitated into a street art museum, Spiktri Street Art Universe.
Visit a winery and do a wine tasting
Another option to spend the hottest hours is to visit a winery et do a tasting. It is always cool in the cellars or cellars. It is also an opportunity to find the bottle that will accompany your meal, from fresh and easy-drinking red to white or rosé, very popular for summer evenings to accompany grilled meats and salads.
Swimming in nature
Of course, the bathing remains a safe bet to spend a cool day. The supervised bathing places in the river are completed by the space of the Jouarres lake. You can also find little secret places to read a book in the cool along the river de l 'Orbieu but be careful, if you bathe there, it will be under your own responsibility.
