Carcassonne

Situated on the edge of a sleepy hamlet in the Razes region of the Languedoc, amongst the last of the vineyards of the region. Nestled just 30 mins from Carcassonne, and its walled Unesco world heritage site, and 15 mins to the beautiful towns of Mirepoix or Limoux.

Carcassonne has fantastic shopping with markets on a Wednesday and Saturday, La Cite boasting some fabulous restaurants. Toulouse is just 50 mins away, and Montpellier 1.5 hours.

Local markets available almost daily with all the atmosphere and amazing fresh produce. Boulangerie, farm shop, pharmacy and supermarket are all within a 5-10 min drive of the village.

Local restaurants and bars are available in the two closest main villages of Belveze and Montreal, both 5km away. With some fabulous local wine domains offering a more indulgent experience. Or just soak up the calm and tranquility of rural France lounging by the pool in one of the hammock chairs.

See Local guide and map for information on nearby towns and facilities.
