Le cyclisme dans l'Aude
Nick vient de sortir son troisième livre sur les montées à faire à vélo dans la région; "Cycling Climbs of the Aude" est maintenant disponible sur Amazon. Les titres sont en anglais mais s'il y a une demande pour les descriptions en français il y a la possibilité d'une traduction à l'avenir.

Walks and hiking

There are plenty of walking opportunities from the doorstep, or borrow our maps of the Pyrenees for a more serious hike.









One of the must see sites not just of the area but in the whole of France. The spectacular Cité de Carcassone needs to be seen to be believed. Carcassonne is around 40 minutes drive from Lafage and as well as the medieval walled old town there are many other things to see in do in and around the city.



If you walk the short distance up the hill from the house to the hamlet of Fage you can see the spectacular mountain chain of the Pyrenees to the south of the village. The mountains dominate the views wherever you go and it is well worth taking a closer look, especially if you enjoy cycling or walking. 



Closer to Lafage is the medieval town of Mirepoix. The town is a mere ten minutes drive south of Lafage and as well as a beautiful square and cathedral there are a large number of souvenir shops, cafes, bars and restaurants in this tourist hotspot. On Mondays the town hosts a huge market with plenty of local delicacies and crafts.



Capital of the Ariege department, this city is well worth a visit. Around 40 minutes drive from Lafage, Foix is set in the foothills of the Pyrenees and boasts a spectacular castle that towers of the town as well as pretty streets full of cafes and restaurants. 


In the other direction to Carcassonne is the magnificent pink city of Toulouse. As well as the beautiful architecture there are plenty of churches, museums and galleries to enjoy and an abundance of restaurants, shops and cafes. The centre of Toulouse is around an hour away from Lafage and the city deserves at least a whole day to be fully appreciated.

Around Lafage


The rural area around Lafage is perfect for walking and/or cycling with hundreds of tracks, paths and roads that are often deserted. Please ask us about the best local routes for walking and the hills to seek out (or avoid) for cyclists.

"I had a great stay - situated in tranquil countryside but only a short drive to Carcassonne and many other smaller towns - including one with an excellent local micro brewery! The house is a beautiful old building and the bedrooms are comfortable and well kept. Also - the food was delicious (and filling)!
