This region offers stunning mountain and coastal flight as well as the rare and special experience of paragliding over the Cathar castles, particularly Peyrepertuse. In fact from there it is possible to fly a cross-country triangle to include Mont Tauch (near Tuchan) and the castle of Quéribus.
As with any paragliding location it is vital to ask for advice from a local pilot before flying. You also need to read and digest the safety information on the notice boards and fiches site. This region has some surprises in store for the unwary, such as fields of vines into which you DO NOT want to land, primarily from the point of view of danger many have metal supports but also to avoid spoiling the vines. If you fly Leucate of course the normal precautions for cliff flying apply. Mountain and valley winds can be deceptive. It is quite possible to find that the wind strength increases considerably while you are flying, or that the direction has swung through 180°.
This advice applies in any area of France that you may paraglide. If you take the proper care it is a wonderful location to fly in.
For the region in general see the web site of the Languedoc League of Free Flight. It gives the flying sites by department (Lozère, Gard, Héault, Aude and Pyrenées-Orientales).
The Pyrenées-Orientales is good place to start. See the web site of the Departmental Committee of Free Flight which lists schools and clubs, sites, repair workshops etc.
There are many mountain flying sites in the Pyrenées-Orientales, including Font Romeu and Ceret.
