Welcome to the land of the Cathars
“Autour d’une toile” welcomes you to their delightful village house, surrounded by the wooded slopes and valleys of the Faby river.
During your stay you can relax deeply into the ambience of art, healing and well being in our guest house, leaving behind the tensions and pressures of modern living. We have a studio which can be visited privately or, if you wish, we would enjoy sharing and exchanging ideas over tea, concerning art, paintings or exhibitions.
Exploring the country you will love the many mysteries surrounding the famous ‘Pech’ of Bugarach, the domain of Rennes-le-Château, the intriguing story of Abbé Saunière, the castles of the Cathar country and many other mystical places.
If you enjoy walking or cycling through these remote and lovely high plateaus and valleys, three tracks start in the village itself.
Nearby are the lakes of Puivert and Montbel with sandy beaches for a refreshing swim or further up the valley are the hot springs of Rennes-les-Bains. Enjoy the famous picturesque market of Esperaza and many excellent local restaurants.
There is so much to enchant you and all you have to do is come and discover !
