Nature

As you can see on the photos, La Bastide is an isolated hamlet in a quiet valley. Cars are rare.

You can take a walk through the valley, relax in the garden or go to our little lake, a few hundred meters away from the hamlet.

In our small area the wildlife is rich, including several species of large birds like vultures, one of them being the Egyptian vulture, a species become rare in France.

The local flora is also very varied. In our valley bloom some of the 80 different varieties of orchids that make up the department of Aude, gentian, fritillaries, Pyrenean lilies ...

 

 

Peak of Bugarach

La Bastide is located right at the foot of the famous peak « Pic de Bugarach ».

 

La Bastide is surrounded by the fortresses of Peyrepertuse, Quéribus, Puilaurens and the dungeon of Arques.

The Agly River, which rises above the hamlet, passes through the picturesque Galamus Canyon (5 min from here) before plunging into the wine valley of Fenouillèdes.
