Exclusive Nine day Group Tour ~ 15 to 22 September 2018

*** This tour is now confirmed! ***

THERE EXISTS an ancient realm in southern France, where forbidden history and unsolved mysteries reign; a land of stunning natural beauty, incredible French cuisine, ancient castles, goddesses and energetic power places. To visit Occitania is more than just exploring historic sites; Occitania allows you to click back into the footprint of your soul.

This mini bus tour is different from any other tour that has ever been organized here in Occitania. Although a visit in Rennes-le-Château is on the itinerary, we are also going to explore several 'off the beaten path places' no large tour bus can reach.

On this tour we will explore Gnosis and Cathar philosophy. We visit PEYREPERTUSE Castle and QUERIBUS Castle, two Cathar castles that we usually only visit during a private tour.

We will also see the mysterious beehive-shaped houses of COUSTAUSSA and discover rare MAGDALEN statues in three different places; statues that are often overlooked...

We will see the famous LAST SUPPER in the St. Volusien Church in Foix and visit the mystical crypt of the "Notre Dame de Sous Terre" in ST. MICHEL DE CUXA in the Roussillon.

We will explore the BETHLEHEM CAVE above Ornolac, visit the ND DE SABART, MONTSEGUR village and monument, the ND DE MARCEILLE and the Hermitage of GALAMUS.

We will discover an ancient and mystical chapel dedicated to ST. MICHEL, hidden deep inside ancient forests, and visit a strange church with a tiny PENTACLE in its leaded glass window.

We will visit THE UNDERGROUND VERSAILLES in the Conflent (the Grandes Canalettes cave), the Troubadour castle of PUIVERT and the ancient chosen place of ALET with its esoteric background. Of course we will also explore the enigma of RENNES-LE-CHATEAU on a special visit. Let's try and discover the reasons why Rennes-le-Chateau has become the main character in such a mysterious play...

Obviously it will be no surprise that the FRENCH CUISINE will be seriously sampled, along with some fine WINES and the Mother of Champagne: the much praised BLANQUETTE DE LIMOUX, which is a lovely light sparkling white wine, invented by mistake in this very region!

Of course we will also help people with their diets (for example vegetarian).


Let's explore the deeper layers of Cathar history and beliefs and see those special places that are not often included in a normal group tour.

Let's go on an adventure...!

Your tour guide on the Ultimate Cathar Experience:

My name is Anneke Koremans. Since 2007 I have been a resident of the southern French department of the Aude-Pyrénées. In my spare time I enjoy photography and writing (under the nom de plume of Jeanne D’Août) and producing little video trailers to help promote this region. Since early childhood I loved studying the lost history of civilization, the first centuries of Christianity, the Gnosis and Mysticism. My esoteric adventure novels and articles have been published in English to reach as many people as possible. In the past I have been a guest on many radio shows, both in the USA and in Australia, but also on a live TV Talk Show in Las Vegas in 2013. In 2012 I was interviewed for a now world famous TV documentary called "Himmler and the Holy Grail", giving me a page on IMDb. I also worked together with the well-known American filmmaker Frank LaLoggia, to write a synopsis for a possible screenplay for my first book "White Lie ~ The Quest for The Forbidden Relic", which is available together with its sequel, "The Eye of Ra", on Amazon (see for all the direct links). In the Summer of 2015, I became a member of the ITW (International Thriller Writers Organization). In 2016, both "The Forbidden Relic" and its sequel "The Eye of Ra" were also published on Kindle eBook. In the past few years I had the honor of being the private guide for several VIPs and celebs from all around the world.

I would LOVE to see YOU on this very special tour. If you are interested in joining me, then send me an e-mail at, so I can put you on the mailing list.

N.B. This tour is only for those who are able to walk rocky paths that are often on a slope (sometimes steep).
