The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Fully equipped modern kitchen and a comfortable combined lounge and dining room with a small balcony for outside breakfast. Bicycles available on request and pre arrival shopping can be organized.
Azille is a wine producing village in the Languedoc-Roussillon so wine tasting and visiting the vinyards is a must in the region. Azille was populated as far back as the Iron Age and also in Roman times. The first church in the town, St Andre, was founded around the 11th century and now only remnants can be seen incorporated in the walls of several houses in the centre of the village. The house was built in the 18th century and is located in the old part of the centre of the town which has some very narrow streets and remnants of the medieval walls and many old buildings dating way back from early days throughout the centuries.
The town has some shops including an Epicerie (small general store with some fresh foods), Boulangerie (baker), New Wine bar called "Taste" which plays some cool Jazz on Thursdays, Friday and Saturday nights, a bar "Café des Artistes" with billiards and outside seating they often have Karaoke and other events happening throughout the year, a restaurant on the edge of town, a Tabac/Presse (small newsagent) and a Post Office, Tea room offering cakes, scones and other Yummy treats, International teas opening mid May. Fresh food vendors pull their vans up and trade in the centre of town a number of mornings each week, selling a range of foods including seafood, meat, barbeque chickens, cheese, fruit and vegetables. There are two wine tasting and sales outlets in Azille itself; The Château Guéry winery that has been producing wines for over eight generations, has a cellar door is the centre of town offering a number of red, rosé and white wines and a dessert wine, and the local Cave Cooperative also has white, rosé and red wines ranging from AOC Minervois appellation wines to Vins de table.
Azille has a number of festivals and markets throughout the year, including dinners and wine tastings in July, night markets in August with local artists and produce. An Autumn Feast in October, and the Feria which is usually held around the end of April to early May and includes a running of bulls. Brocante (Bric a Brac markets are held in Azille throughout the year and local produce markets throughout the summer. Their is a tourist information office in town to tell you what is happening and they also sell a selection of Azille wines.
Day to day there are a variety of activities available in and around Azille. Bicycles can be hired for riding around the town and district, and it is also very pleasurable to explore the narrow streets of the village on foot. Like all French towns Azille has a public area for playing petanque, and there is also a tennis court. There is also a small gallery with regularly changing exhibitions.
The Canal du Midi the Vineyards and all the other magnificent attractions that the historical Cathar region has to offer. This is a peaceful area and you awake to birds singing and sense of calm as its a very quiet neighbourhood.

"Very charming house, nice kitchen and terrace upstairs."
The home was very nice, the town is a bedroom community and very quiet. If you looking for a peaceful place, Azille is a good location. There is only a small bakery, a bar, tea house and limited market located within the city. There are some more restaurants in a nearby town and a large grocery store 20 minutes away.
So glad you enjoyed the peaceful stay at La Cerise in Azille, it can get busy with certain events throughout the summer and the Feria in April. There is small vegetable market on a Friday in Azille with some food vendors selling roast chickens, Paella and Pizza and we now have an Indian Takeaway point just started. La Redorte is where you find the supermarket its only 2km from the house if you find the Epicerie in Azille insufficient, its possible to ride the bikes there also. I will now have that information written down in the house for clients convenience. Thank you and we really hope to see you again.

"Halcyon house in beautifully typical French village"
We only stayed at La Cerise for a week but I could easily have relaxed there another, infact I felt I was just getting into the ambiance of Azille and the Aude area in general. The 14th century church… More

"5**** Value for money for a great holiday!"
We stayed in this recently renovated village house in Azille for 3 nights and had a really nice and pleasant stay.
The communication with the owner (a lovely Australian lady now based in France), ahead of our arrival, was excellent and hassle-free, and she warmly welcomed us with a bottle of wine and a bowl of fruits, so we started off by enjoying an nice aperitif on the terrasse.
We thought the house was great, cosy and confortable and really spacious for just the 2 of us of course. Everything we needed was there and there were even a mini-bar (not free though but extra)
Located in Azille itself, we were a only a few minutes walk from the commodities and the village square.
We enjoyed a tour of the local vineyards, bike and boat trips along the beautiful Canal du Midi, and a day-out in famous Unesco World Heritage city, Carcassone.
All-round a great trip!
The house was excellent value for money we thought, and we would definately highly recommend it to others. We would certainly stay there again ourselves if we were to have another holiday in the Languedoc region!
