The Visigoth Walk

Let us take you on a guided walk in La Belle Aude, the Languedoc Départment that is home to Carcassonne and many beautiful villages and was once home to the Visigoths in the 5th century. Along the way you will see vineyards, castles and exceptional landscapes. You will also visit a very special place that hardly any visitors ever get to see. Local people have known about the little cemetery that sits on a hill surveying the beautiful Aude valley for centuries. It’s a vestige from the Visigoth times that played an important part in Languedoc history.

We have created a 2-hour walking tour that starts when we pick you up from your holiday address and drive you to the start of the walk which is in one of the Minervois villages. This is an easy walk, no steep hills but plenty of beautiful views and interesting things to see along the way including the cemetery.

During the walk your guide will tell you much about the history of the region from the Greek era through to modern times. You will pass through vineyards and your guide will explain about the vines, how they are cared for and the wines they produce.

A very special lunch is included in this tour accompanied by the wines of the region followed by a stroll around Caunes-Minervois, a village with a great history and a beautiful 8th century abbey which you will have the time to visit.
