This was just one stop on my tour through Cathar country. This chateau was the highlight for me. Older and nicer-looking than the chateau de Rennes. Better weather here than at the cloud-covered Montsegur castle (though that may be a coincidence). Although the chateau in...More

One of the many chateaus in the area. the road to the car park is a bit of an adventure, as is the climb to the entrance. They have occasional medieval moments but you take pot luck. This is nothing special, but worth a visit...More

Road up to chateau is very rutted but driveable if careful and there are no mad drivers bombing down the hill! Views are stunning, looking over nearby lake and seeing the glider planes take oof and land at nearby airfield. Chateau itself is worth a...More

Puivert is a bit out of the way but well worth the trip, check it out on your gps or map, the views are spectacular, and so much history. Sure the drivable track from the road up is bit shoddy, but it's doable, park a...More

We tried visiting Chateau Chalabre today and after driving all the way there found it to be closed. Found Puivert not far away and as we had promised the kids a trip to a casttle thought we would stop. Initially you have a long walk...More

As you climb up to this Chateau, look across fields of glistening wheat and snow covered Pyrenees & imagine troubadours coming from all over the country to sing and play their instruments here. Climb the outer stairs (hold on tight, there's quite a wind) and...More

Response from Peter E | Reviewed this property
Surprisingly, there is not only a nice restaurant in Puivert, but it is Afghani. They offer vegetarian and meat options, and the food is delicious. It is called Le Pamir, and it is reviewed on Tripadvisor.
