I was first introduced to Mas Cabardes which sits high up in La Montagne Noir – a mountain range to the west of Carcassonne in central southern France by my friend Anne Kerleo and have filled quite a few sketch books from that area.
This mountain range is considered to be very mystical with a fascinating history surrounding the Cathars who first appeared in Europe during the 11th century. It is an area well worth exploring…..full of beautiful surprises.
Here are a some of the people and cats from Mas Cabardes.
