St Martin du Canigou and Serrabone priory in Pyrenees

Jump to last reply

We are planning to explore the area south of Toulouse for a week in July, basing ourselves in Tarascon for a few days then heading over to Cucugnan. (Mostly hiking, castles and a visit to Niaux.) In between we are thinking of going to St Martin and Serrabone as we are interested in the architecture. Has anyone done both in a day? We would be going to Tarascon and ending up in Cucugnan hopefully, but don't want to arrive after dark. It will be July so at least we have a long day. Or should we stay somewhere in between? ViaMichelin leads me to believe its a short distance but everything depends on the roads.
We are also wondering how bad the road to Serrabone is.The guidebooks mention harrowing and perilous. So- can two cars pass? Is it like driving in Italy or worse (no guard rails, steep sides?) And if its perilous-why is it mentioned in the guidebooks. PS I really dislike goat path driving but this appears to be worth it. Anyone have experience on this part of the world?
