Feilluns (formerly known as Felluns) is a picturesque village beautifully located at the bottom
of Pyrenees mountain range, among lavish natural landscape. The surroundings of gîtes are
perfect for hiking, walking or cycling. Local fauna is rich in plants, flowers, herbs. Vastly
grown by the local farmers are also asparagus, berries, truffles and mushrooms. The trees
such as almond, wild cherry mimosa provide the shade when needed. And for the wine
lovers, of course, there are numerous wine farms.
Not too far away from the cottages runs a river with the most beautiful spot around
Gourgoullidou, it is perfect for swimming with crystal clear water, large, polished pebbles and
small waterfall. The bed of the river varies from place to place, but some of the flat spots
make it very easy to spot schools of trout.
History enthusiasts will find in the area various sites worth visiting. There are many dolmens
(megalithic tombs) as well as protected historical aqueducts in nearby Asignan and Pic de
Lazerou. Built by Romans to bring water from outside sources into cities and towns to supply
public baths, latrines, fountains, private households and mining operations, farms, and
gardens. Another attraction is a mountain peak with orientation table.
It is a local tradition that five days a week around the noon the baker drives by the village. It
is a perfect opportunity to purchase directly from the source freshly baked bread and
pastries as well as some cheese. There also is a bakery approximately 12 km away.
