Tourist information is available in the Maison de la Montagne in Espzel. Larger Tourist Offices are in Quillan and Ax les Thermes have lots of information about the area and will tell you opening times of various places but here are some of our suggestions for your family. SwimmingIn Belcaire there is a small lake for summer swimming, a children’s play area and boule and tennis courts. In Puivert (15 km) there is a larger lake with a sandy beach. Canoeing and kayaking. You can hire these on the River Aude. Walking Belcaire is an ideal centre for walking all through the year. There are numerous picturesque way-marked walks in the immediate area and high Pyrenean walks within an hour’s drive. We have made a folder of walks from the village and in the area with maps and instructions. CastlesThere are several Cathar Castles nearby. The most famous is at Montsegur. There is a well preserved castle at Puivert with a tower and four storeys that you can visit. In the chapel are some stone carvings of people playing medieval musical instruments that are replicated in the museum in the village. At Chalabre Castle they re-enact Medieval jousting. At Lordat Castle there is an eagle flying display some afternoons. Foix castle is worth a visit. There are several spectacular caves in the Foix area one with an underground river. Wild flowers are abundant orchids in June, Saffron crocuses in Autumn. Excellent bird watching.
