Descriptif détaillé :

The castle:
Walk in the direction of the wine cooperative. Go past the building (1) and, immediately past it, turn left on the small road going uphill, lined, on the left hand side, with cypress trees. After the last few houses, take the path straight ahead into the pine wood. The trail going up to the castle is lined with Spanish broom. Walk left alongside the reservoir and continue on the small path, still going up towards the castle. At the crossroads with a horizontally lined path, (2) turn left. You’ll walk in the shade of the pine trees. Climb the hillside up to the castle by means of a landscaped set of stairs. You’ll walk through the ancient medieval village. A viewpoint overlooking the surrounding plain gives you an idea of the protective role this building once had.
Walk down all the steps and get back to the trail in the shade of the pines where the road is horizontal. Continue on this trail straight ahead. It goes along the Pech and the construction halfway downhill. Then the path turns away from the castle and goes down amidst the vineyards. (3) A path soon meets up with the road you’ll take to the right to go back to the village.

La pinède de la Jasse (The Jasse pine wood):
Walk past town hall, go up the allée des Acacias then walk down the rue de la Serre and the Rampe des Corbières. Cross the D123 and (1) continue the hike on the chemin du Moulin de Tacou. After the ford, you’ll walk along a wall made of beautiful stones on your left hand side. At the end of the road, you have a choice of 3 tracks in the rough. (2) Take the one in the middle, slightly to the right, going up towards the pine trees. Cross a plot of garrigue land, where the Montpellier cistus abounds. (3) Next, take the first path you see to your right, going down towards the bed of a stream (dry), turning into a small path amidst the grey leaf cistus. The path then goes up amongst the pine trees, the garrigue and the holm oak trees. (4) At the peak of the track and just before going down again, you’ll enjoy a nice view on the castle and the village. The junipers abound here. The path next tackles a flat section when a very characteristic looking pine tree is within sight. The path now follows a stream, goes right round a vineyard and meets up with the track again before you reach the road which will take you back to the village.
