Rennes-le-Chateau — 2 nights

Rennes-le-Château is a small commune approximately 5 km south of Couiza, in the Aude department in Languedoc in southern France.This small French hilltop village is known internationally, and receives tens of thousands of visitors per year, because of various conspiracy theories, about an alleged buried treasure discovered by its 19th-century priest Bérenger Saunière, the precise nature of which is disputed by those who believe in its existence.HistoryMountains frame both ends of the region—the Cevennes to the northeast and the Pyrenees to the south. You've now added Eglise Sainte-Marie-Madeleine to your itinerary. Go for a jaunt from Rennes-le-Chateau to Tuchan to see Chateau d'Aguilar about 58 minutes away. There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Rennes le chateau, steep yourself in history at Musee Berenger Sauniere, take a memorable drive along Gorges de la Pierre-Lys, and indulge in some personalized pampering at thermes de Rennes les bains.
