The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
As well as being a region of outstanding natural beauty this is a wine growing region of France that is also steeped in history. Visiting the many local vineyards in the area is a great attraction.
There are two World Heritage Sites and of course the old mediaeval city of Carcassonne which rises up above the Canal du Midi is a fascinating place to visit. Walks beside the canal are lovely and also this is a wonderful area for cyclists.
The Carcassonne / Cuxac Cabardes area
This is the historical Cathar region of France which also has a great deal to offer in the way of horse riding, golf, beautiful walks and picnics either by the Canal du Midi or in the Montagne Noire region where there are lakes where you can swim or fish. The village of Collioure is very popular and, being a wonderful area for painting, is a favourite place for artists.
There are many village fêtes in the area throughout the summer as well as music festivals. Cuxac Cabardes has its own fête and music festival in August which lasts for three or four days and includes a wonderful firework display, this is popular with those who are looking for more than relaxation whilst others are pleased when peace returns to the village. All in all the area has a great deal to offer should you wish to explore or just relax at home.
If you wish to eat out at a local restaurant 'La Diligence' is only a 10 minute walk from the house and the food is excellent.

We had a great stay at the cottage in Cuxac. Logistically very easy to get to from Carcassone or Toulouse. Plenty of parking space in village and very simple checking in and out.

A lovely week spent at the village house, excellent location quiet yet close enough to Carcassonne. Mornings out exploring, followed by walks around the village, then red wine by the log burner; splendid.
Another happy guest, I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay!

Good location in a small friendly village which has most of what you would want on hand. 20 mins easy drive from Carcasonne. Prepare yourself well for the quirks of french roads/ road signs and you are well on your way to a good holiday. Explore locally and you will be pleasantly surprised.
Top room in house guarantees relaxation
Thank you for taking the time to write a Review. I hope other would be guests find it helpful and that they too will want to explore the area or just relax at home.
