Laroque de Fa, set in the heart of Cathar country is a small village of about 150 inhabitants. On the D613 road linking Narbonne to Andorra the village is surrounded by vineyards, steeped in history and renowned for its natural, unspoiled beauty. It is an ideal setting, happily situated to cater for culture and sightseeing, sporting and family holidays.
The village, first mentioned back in 1167, is built on a spur, the highest rocky mass being called ‘Castelnaut’ (high castle) on which was perched the castle where Olivier de Termes sought refuge back in the 12th century. Many of the older buildings in the village are made from the stones of the old castle and battlements. There is also an ancient aqueduct which used to feed the village mill.
Today the village is well known for its pâtés and boasts a small supermarket, the customary traders’ vans selling cheese, fish, bread, meat and vegetables, a tennis court and the typical boules pitch.
