Domaine du Renne
About the home
Domaine du Renne boasts two holiday cottages / Gites in a peaceful setting with unspoilt southerly views across endless vineyards. The property set on the side of a gentle hill surrounded by its own woodland that offers remarkable walking . There is a two bedroom and a one bedroom Gite (see the associated adverts for availability) Both are beside the 12x6M saltwater pool
The Domaine is totally private at the end of a chemin, with a farm as one neighbour and a small wine producer the other! It is therefore a place to relax and soak up the sun beside the pool!
The countryside of the Aude is one of the most diverse in France. A 15 minute drive can take one into the gently rolling wheat fields of the Lauragais, vineyards of the Limouxin, or wild mountains and gorges of the Corbieres, always with the Pyrenees as a backdrop.
We are surrounded by castles and ancient fortified towns, the greatest of which is Carcassonne, less than 30 minutes away. The mediaeval town of Mirepoix with its Monday market in the arcaded square is also nearby.
Cycling, canoeing and walking are favourite pastimes and lakes offer the chance for leisurely swims and picnics. We provide a set of self-guided walks in each gite. Scenic Mediterranean fishing villages and fine beaches are just over an hour away.

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
During July Carcassonne hosts "Le Festival de la Cité" - series of music and dance with world class rock and classical musicians and stars of opera and ballet.
Jousts are held in the lists between Carcassonne's inner and outer walls during July and August.
During the 13 weeks up to Easter each year Limoux holds the longest running carnival in Europe. Three times a day, every Saturday and Sunday there is a procession with fancy dress, music, dancing and lots of confetti throwing!
The Carcassonne area
‘La Cité' de Carcassonne?A 12th Century, walled town, restored to its former glory in the 19th Century and is now a UNESCO world heritage site. Full of shops, cafés, and bars, it is the second most visited site in France after Paris. As you might expect, it can be a bit crowded but well worth the visit for some spectacular photographs. Plan to get there for 8.30 for a few hours peace before the coaches arrive. The cathedral of St Nazaire has some of the finest medieval stained glass in the country and usually free organ recitals on a Sunday at 17.00 hrs. The newer part of Carcassonne, La bastide de St Louis (17th Century) has lots of shops, bookshops and a wide range of good, mediocre and poor restaurants. The Saturday morning market is held in the main square.?Approx. 30 mins. drive
