Lesquilourié is in the Midi Pyrenees and Occitanie area of France. This is the land of the Albigensian Crusade; the Hundred Years War; the source of wine for Henry VIII’s table; the WWII Resistance who helped the shot down allied aviators escape through the Pyrenees. It is the scene of many Tour de France stages, racing through the Gaillac vineyards towards the Pyrenean climbs.
It is an area steeped in history, with medieval fortified villages perched on hill tops that have barely changed since the 12th century. A place with bustling market towns selling local produce and so very much more. This area has so much to offer and explore, whether on foot, on horseback, by bike, or by car.
