Fraïsse sur Agôut

The lovely, tiny village has many small blooming gardens: various groups of sparse houses base their wealth on fishing and bathing tourism in the local ponds or lakes. Archaeological vestiges dating back to the Neolithic are very important here as well. There is a nice example of rural architecture typical of the High Languedoc at a short distance from the village (1 km), in Prat d’Alaric: two buildings that used to be a cattle shed and a barn, equipped with a broom thatched roof. They have recently been restored thanks to some projects of the Parc Naturel Régional du Haute Languedoc, which was created in 1972 and extended to an area of 260,000 hectares (170,000 of forest) on the southern foothills of the Massif Central. It preserves a hilly area on the watershed between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, which is very important for its rich biodiversity.
