Come and discover La Piege, a micro-region in the Lauragais, in the department of the Aude, one of the last almost unchanged and until recently undiscovered corners of France. It is tucked away between the Canal du Midi, and the Pyrénéan Mountain range. Enjoy the tranquil pace of life, play pétanque in the sleepy villages nestled in the gently undulating landscape and search out small restaurants with their superb local cuisine; explore the Montagnes Noires and the foothills of the Pyrénées with their breathtaking panoramas and find the many medieval and Cathar castles and towns with their varied, exciting and often bloodied histories; all this set against the dramatic backdrop of the Pyrénéan mountains.
