Salz in Couiza

Salz in Couiza

The river Salz is a tranquil and gently flowing tributary to the Aude. Ten minutes walk (or two minutes drive) from Gite des Cathares, is a beautiful natural pool (shown in the photos) with a sloping beach into the water and deeper areas for the accomplished swimmer. It is possible to spend a relaxing day sunbathing and cooling off in the river with plenty of shady and sunny spots to suit everyone. The water is so clear that you can even use a snorkle and mask.

 


Right on the doorstep of Gite des Cathares, where the Salz joins the Aude, is a lovely deep swimming spot near some stepping stones. Not as private as many swimming places, but still a fabulous way to cool off after a hot summers day sightseeing. There are also several other swimming spots up and down the Salz.
