The Languedoc-Roussillon 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.


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.

In the village there is a restaurant in the local hotel should you wish to eat out locally. Sadly the 'La Diligence' restaurant is now closed.

"Well-appointed house in delightful village setting"

We loved both the house and the area. The house is full of character, with furnishings and decoration to a high standard. The beds and the sofas were beautifully comfortable! On the top floor, there is a particularly nice room where you can relax and look out over the roofs and treetops. On the walls of the house are excellent photographs taken by the owner.
Sue next door looks after the house for the owner, and is there to greet you on arrival and show you around the house. Although we did not experience any problems, it was a source of security to know she was available had we done so.
The village itself is charming if you are looking for a holiday away from it all. It does, however, have a shop, a baker, and two restaurants which serve reasonable food.
The house is in a good position for exploring unspoilt and underpopulated south west France. We did not queue nor sit in a traffic jam for a whole two weeks! The towns and villages of the area are beautiful as well as historically and architecturally interesting. The markets supply a good range of local produce: fruit and veg, cheese, charcuterie, honey, wine etc. It's a great place to go if you are into quality food and wine.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at 'The Village House'. It certainly is a lovely region of France to explore and great to be able to come home and have somewhere nice to relax. Thank you for your kind comments.

"First class for standard, value and location"

We had a fantastic time staying at the Village House. Communication from Liz was very good before we arrived at the house. Everything you need is included such as satellite tv, unlimited wi-fi, barbeque, etc. The house was spotlessly clean and Sue who looks after the house was very helpful. The village is peaceful and everyone was friendly. It is located close to Carcassonne which is very accessible. All in all we really enjoyed ourselves and hope to come again sometime. We would definitely recommend staying at the Village House

Thank you for your Review. I am so pleased that you had such a lovely holiday, it is so nice when guests can switch off and enjoy themselves!

"A great place to stay!"

Cuxac Carbardes is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful region around Carcassonne. Within 10 mins drive you can find a number of typically lovely villages to explore and many fantastic places & landmarks a bit further afield. The house was lovely, comfortable & had everything we needed and the village itself had a couple of places to eat & shops if you wanted to stay put for a day. A great place to stay!

Thank you for taking the time to write a Review. This is truly a lovely area of France and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at The Village House. Happy holidays!

"Lovely rural French stay"

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. The cottage itself wa… More

"Cosy Cottage"

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!

"Relaxation in a small Aude village"

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.

"A lovely house with the best of both worlds - close to the city but in a pretty rural village"

The Village House was a beautifully restored house, full of character in a charming village setting, with easy access to Carcassonne and the nearby national park. There was plenty to see and do close by for both the adults and kids.
A lovely relaxed stay
Thanks Liz!

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at 'The Village House' in this lovely area of France

"Delightful house in charming, peaceful and friendly village"

From the moment we arrived we felt at home, in fact our first day was spent just pottering around the village, sitting on sunny benches, relaxing. Our young son enjoyed the play park and Grandad enjoyed sketching the views. The house provided comfortable and easy living in flexible accommodation. Tastefully decorated, quality linen, comfy beds - everything you need for a 'get away from it all' holiday.

The house is in a great location with plenty to do in the local area. We explored the historic towns, villages and sights; wooded walks, scenic lakes, mountains and great views, particularly on the road over to Mazamet. The local shop is small but surprisingly well stocked. Grandad visited the boulangerie every morning and returned with warm freshly baked croissants for breakfast along with our daily baguette.

A lovely house in a superb location! And we would like to go back please...

Guests are always welcome to return ... Grandad too! I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay.

"Highly recommended Accommodation"

My wife and I would not hesitate to rate The Village House "highly recommended", having had a very comfortable and relaxing holiday there in September.
We found it an excellent base for exploring this beautiful area of France from as far south as the Spanish border up to Albi and Pezenas, including most places in between!
Apart from the fact it is spotlessly clean and is furnished and equipped to a high standard, we particularly looked forward to returning each evening for our barbecued supper in the delightful private courtyard where we could relax till late in candle light with a glass of local wine, and in peaceful silence, interrupted only by the sound of the river and hooting owls in the trees across the way.
It was good to be living cheek by jowl with friendly local people and to have the facilities of the village shops and two restaurants, especially the morning espresso on the way back from the boulangerie!
We would also echo previous reviews that, Liz, the owner could not have been more approachable and helpful.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at 'The Village House' and thank you for recommending it so highly!
