Discover the Lauragais Country

Discover the Lauragais Country

In this sunlit, naturally preserved area in the south of France, take a relaxing weekend or a longer holiday — the Lauragais Country is a little-known delight waiting to be discovered.


Pour les amoureux de la nature :

  • Take a barge down the Canal du Midi visit the Canal Museum and Gardens at Port Lauragais and learn more about this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a walk along the shady canal banks and soak up the serenity of the French countryside.
  • Walk or hike through rich and varied landscapes, the fields and groves, the colours of a land forged by agriculture, with magnificent views over the Lauragais plain and the Pyrenees. Don't forget your camera!
  • Dive into a lake at Orme Blanc or Saint-Ferréol.. Windsufers will love the spot de la Ganguise!


Culture and history lovers

Discover the  Cathars authors of the history of the Lauragais. Take the Cathar tour from Saint-Félix Lauragais to Fanjeaux via Avignonet-Lauragais.


You prefer arts and crafts

Come and see the craft workshops of Revel and the Pottery at Not.

An unmissable stop for food lovers

Castelnaudary — where you can try the famous cassoulet in its home town. Complete your discovery of local flavours with the people who produce them - always willing to share their know-how with a smile!


How about a shopping trip?

Come and see Nailloux Outlet Village and its 80 brand stores (discounts from 30% to 70%). Stop at the Lauragais Tourist Office shop for souvenir ideas.

The Lauragais Country is located in a triangle between Toulouse, Albi, and Carcassonne, close to both the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean - both can be visited for a day out from the Lauragais area!
