Charm of tradition….
If you come to Carcassonne or even better you stay at Métairie Montplaisir, then you have to go and visit Brousses et Villaret paper mill.
Not only because it´s the last one in activity in Languedoc Roussillon (when it used to have 637 working in Languedoc Roussillon 200 years ago), but on top of learning about traditionnal way of making paper, you will enjoy a beautiful walk in a quiet, green and refreshing landscape and last but not least you will discover stationery treasures like old nibs, different forms, types and qualities of paper for your letters, your announcements, delicate paintings.
You can also practice and attend one of the many workshops!
