Holiday gite in the tiny hamlet of Puilaurens, perfectly placed between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean Sea. Escape the busy tourist resorts and discover a lesser known area of France with it's spectacular backdrop of mountainous peaks. Puilaurens is a romantic idyll in a picturesque setting with it's own Cathar Castle perched high above watching down on you. Wake up to the church bells, the birds singing and the sun pouring through the windows. Enjoy a peaceful breakfast on the balcony - what better way to start the day!

Nestling in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the Aude region of France, this delightful south facing village house backs onto a field with fantastic views including the Chateau de Puilaurens, which is a must to visit. It is an ideal base to explore rural France, discover more about the Languedoc-Roussillon region and to savour the local wines.

Our aim is to make you feel you are home from home. We try to provide everything you could need in equipment and comfort, from cooking a gourmet meal, to a quiet evening in front of the television or listening to music.

The River Boulzane runs though the village and offers peace and tranquillity. The walk down to Lapradelle to the village shop takes about 10-15 minutes and follows the river course. It is a lovely walk with lots of photo opportunities. The whole area is one of peaks, gorges, valleys and spectacular scenery. Both the Mediterranean Sea and Ski-resorts are about an hour's drive away. Closest towns are Axat and Quillan, 10 and 20 minutes drive, with Perpignan about 45 minutes and Carcassonne about an hour away.

Axat

Nearby Lapradelle - 1 mile (10-15 minutes walk) has a bakery, bar, restaurant and general stores. Axat, which is a 10 minute drive has more shops and a bank, or take the road cut through the hills to Quillan for a wider range of Restaurants, shops and bars. There are also supermarkets on the road to Perpignan, and hypermarkets at both Perpignan and Carcassonne. Your stay can be as active or as quiet as you want it. There are numerous opportunities for canoeing, kayaking, canyoning, climbing, cycling, riding, ski-ing and walking. Or just enjoy the spectacular scenery and while away the hours over a glass of wine! The River Aude running between Axat (approx 8Km from Puilaurens) and Quillan offers supervised rafting, kayaking and canoeing. The road from Axat to Quillan is part of the Tour de France route.

There are lakes for swimming at Puivert (30 mins drive), Chalabre and Arques (11Km east of Couiza). The Gorges de Galamus, just outside St Paul de Fenouillet offers 3 rock pools deep enough to swim. There is also a an open air pool at Axat with slides and shutes, just as you leave the village on the right, and a small open air pool at St. Paul de Fenouillet.

There are numerous sandy beaches to choose from along the east coast - Canet-Plage, St Cyprien and Argeles, with an Aquapark between St Cyprien and Argeles. Head slightly north of Perpignan and take the road past Le Barcares to Leucate Plage. This has a long sandy beach which doesn't get too crowded. Or venture further south to Collioure, Port-Vendres and when you get closer to Banyuls the beaches become smaller and less commercialised. You can even drive along the coastal road into Spain which offers spectacular views. Barcelona is about a 3 hour drive away.

From Axat, the mountain road takes you to the ski resorts of Mijanes, Formigueres and Les Angles - no more than an hour away. Or take the road to Andorra - about 2 hours away.
