Not far from the 'Maison de Cheri', the Malpere unveils a region rich in flavours and traditions. Numerous winegrowing estates open their cellars for visits and tastings. The markets of Limoux and Carcassonne offer stalls selling fruit, vegetables, multi coloured flowers, as well as markets where products of the sea, with 'huîtres de Leucate', mingle with those of the mountain, with 'porc du Pays Cathare', the 'confitures d'oignons du Minervois' and 'miel des Corbières' .
Nearby, there are equestrian centres, 'antiquaires' et 'brocanteurs', restaurants and unusual 'table gourmand'.
The celebrated City of Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi are close by, as well as several Cathar castles to discover and rediscover.The mountains offer opportunity for long rambles, whereas the seaside, an hour away by car, offers beautiful days in the open air.
