Vacations in La Couvertoirade

Set in unspoilt countryside, La Couvertoirade is a lively medieval island of stalls, craft stores and restaurants.

The walled city can be visited freely, strolling through its cobbled streets, or on a fascinating guided tour.

Learn about the history of this village, built successively by the Templar and Hospitaller orders.

La Couvertoirade is a lively town, especially during the summer season: if you stay here during this period, you’ll be able to attend night markets, taste fouées baked in the communal oven, and enjoy medieval festivals.

Every day in July, the site hosts falconry shows. The communal oven comes to life, and various workshops take place in the streets of the town: archery, blacksmith demonstrations, giant games, treasure hunts and even night-time visits are all on offer.
