From Roquefort to Sylvanès

Les Rougiers

Coming from Roquefort , and before the flamboyant entrance to the Rougiers, Saint-Affrique (yes, there are 2 F’s) invites you to stop for a pedestrian stroll in the old town center, between quays of the Sorgues and Pont vieux, in the alleys of the Saturday morning market or for a coffee break on the terrace in the little town.

From here, 2 options are open to you:

  • A detour to the Château de Montaigut for a family visit, the view over the Rougier is admirable.
  • Or lean towards the village tour option, with a stop at Camarès, on the road to Sylvanès.

The colors of the Rougier, the whole palette of oranges and reds, from salmon pink to brick red, spread out in gradations on the sandstone facades… Stroll through the village along the historic tour route: the Noria, the 11th-century Old Bridge, Notre Dame du Camarès , the old château, home to a rose garden…
