What to see
Situated in a valley in the Pyrenees (Haute Vallée de l’Aude) and on the borders of the Aude and Ariège departments, the pays vert of Kercorb has maintained its character as a crossroads at which many paths meet, within a vast terrain rich in contrasts and with much to offer visitors.
Its mild weather, a fusion of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic climates, makes any stay here enjoyable all year round.
