GOURG GOUTONNIER

At TALAIRAN

Itineray type : Foot

Theme : Cultural

Season : Autumn

Descriptif détaillé :

Leave the village on the D323. You’ll walk past a basin (known as the “lavoir à pétales”, the petal washtub), extremely pleasant during the warm summer months. Take the chemin de la Croisette which will take you to (1) the Notre-Dame-de-l’Ere chapel. Continue towards the Col de Salles (227 m). There, you’ll take the path to the right which you’ll follow for about 600 m, before climbing the Buffanel on a small path to the left (2) through the garrigue on the edge of the superb gorges of the Nielle stream, twisting and turning 100 m below. Walk up along the gorges on a small ridge path, and continue alongside a fenced vineyard.
Next up is a gradual descent towards the “Gourg Goutonnier”, (3) where you’ll be able to admire what the stream has done to the rocks, the main result being a giant pothole-like basin. During the high water season, in autumn, you’ll be able to see a succession of turquoise coloured basins. The path goes up again along the Nielle for about 300 m, leading to a vineyard section. Follow the path lined with holm oaks till you reach the cottage called ‘cabane de Loulou’, then turn right on a track leading to the Cantéric sharecropping farm.
Walk around the pine copse and, on a hollowed-out path and amidst some vineyards, you’ll reach a partially tarred track. Cross (4) the Fourques ravine and return on the small track of Notre-Dame-de-l’Ere where the stream is fordable. Turn left towards the village, continue for about 200 m, then turn right (5) at the edge of a vineyard followed by a holm oak plantation. Cross some close-cropped grassy plots, remains of former pastures. Return to the village on the chemin des Moulins à Vent, where the remains of the bodies of two windmills can still be seen, left of the track.
