The Pastel and the Canal du Midi: two essential heritages of the Toulouse region. Let’s spend the day discovering these jewels and learning more about the culture of Toulouse.
Denise is a passionate person. She makes her dyes from a plant: Pastel. During a workshop, she will introduce us to this surprising plant and show us how to extract its pigment.
What better way to discover the Canal du Midi than by cycling along its course? Conceived and created by Pierre Paul Riquet, the Canal du Midi is a technical feat that is well worth a visit!

Between historical heritage and wine heritage, there is only one step. After discovering the history of the city of Carcassonne, let’s discover the delights of Corbières wine.
In the heart of the citadelle of Carcassonne, discover the château comtal and its ramparts, masterpieces of Gallo-Roman and medieval military architecture, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
Stéphane will show us the Corbières vineyards by bike. Let’s ride through these beautiful landscapes and taste these delicious wines during this afternoon.
Day 3: Natural Beauty
Today’s agenda: hiking! This morning, let’s walk through the vineyards of the Riberach estate and this afternoon, get ready to be blown away by a hike in the Pyrénées-Orientales.
Let’s go for a walk in the landscapes of this small corner of Roussillon. Between vineyards and garrigue, our guide reveals the secrets of the wines of Domaine Riberach during this suspended moment. Let’s finish this moment with some Catalan grilled food.
The Orgues site is a unique place in France. Let’s enjoy a landscape of fairy chimneys with a fragile and ephemeral beauty. The cliffs of sand and clay patiently chiseled by the rain and the erosion will know how to leave us stunned in front of their breathtaking beauty…
Day 4: Sailors for a day
After walking through the mountains, let’s sail on the Mediterranean Sea. The coast has so many varied and natural landscapes to offer, let’s enjoy them.
Let’s embark on the sailing boat “slow” for a route off the Vermeille coast. Crystal clear water, secret coves and a variety of landscapes are all part of this expedition. The Mediterranean holds no secrets for Eric, our captain, who has made it his mission to make us fall in love with his region.
Day 5 : Escape to paradise
Enjoy the beauty of the Mediterranean coast and discover the history of the seaside towns and protected areas.
On the coast, the listed site of Anse de Paulliles offers a wonderful landscape. Between the sea and the mountains, the terraced vineyards and the cork oak forests, let’s venture along the trail for a walk in the heart of a protected natural park.
As we arrive in Banyuls, we discover an authentic terroir: a vineyard that flows into the sea, centuries-old olive groves and picturesque hamlets. So much beauty that inspired the artist Aristide Maillol.
Day 6: When man and nature meet
Let’s dive into the heart of Gruissan, a magnificent city by the sea, which will make us live unique experiences through its traditions and its land.
Discover how salt is produced and harvested at the Salin de Gruissan, an activity that has shaped the landscape for thousands of years, and soak up the richness of the flora and fauna of these salty steppes.
During a walk in the vineyards, our guide, Alban, will help us to discover the secrets that allow the grapes to become wine: Let’s quench our thirst for curiosity and stroll along the paths of the land in a convivial way.
Day 7 : The return
Let’s say goodbye to Occitanie on a high note: final walks, final tastings and final discoveries. See you soon!

Let’s end this tour as it began: by discovering a canal. This time on board a Gabare, a traditional boat with which we will have unprecedented views of this preserved natural area
Les Cabanes dans les Bois
Let’s spend the night in the charming rooms of the Cabanes dans les Bois and let’s walk along the corridors which are the paths winding in the woods… We will appreciate the enchanting environment of the agricultural domain which hosts them, bordered by the Canal du Midi and with a direct view of the medieval city… Only one word of order: enjoy.
Domaine de Riberach
Let’s discover this little corner of paradise, between the Cathar country and the Catalan lands, the Domaine Riberach has the art of combining history and modernity, architecture and design, in a bucolic setting at the heart of one of the most beautiful vineyards of the Mediterranean.
Let’s spend the night away from all the hustle and bustle at the Hotel des Roches Brunes. A true haven of peace and well-being, it enjoys above all an exceptional location: set on a rock, its unobstructed view of the Mediterranean and the village of Collioure makes it a unique place.
Let’s spend the night at the Château Capitoul. Perched for several centuries on top of a hill overlooking a peaceful Mediterranean lagoon, the Château captivates with its majestic silhouette. The superb castle reigns over wild landscapes as only the Languedoc has the secret.
