Montagne Noire… Do not be deceived by its name, it’s actually really green! Be inspired by the magic of the mountain, by the heritage of the land and by the stories it tells. The land of Autan, which stretches from Castres to Labastide-Rouairoux, unveils surprising riches and a remarkable way of life.

In Castres, the good life has hints of Spanish humour and Italian dolce vita! Climb on board a barge for a leisurely adventure. Meet Goya and Jaurès in their respective museums, settle down on a terrace, get lost in the maze of cobbled streets… a great place for couples to unwind!

A Mountain of Stories

Heading south, you will come across Mazamet, Hautpoul, Lac des Montagnès, Labruguiere and Labastide-Rouairoux, which in turn reveal the history of the Cathars, the textile industry and the passions of this rough but beautiful land.
