About the home
In the peaceful village of Belvis on the Plateau de Sault, surrounded by extraordinary views of the Pyrenees, this beautifully decorated village house is an ideal retreat for those looking for complete peace and quiet, or for keen ramblers and skiiers - the house is just half an hour from the slopes at Camurac and Ax-les-Thermes.
Belvis is a very rustic village and there are plenty of places to explore in the surrounding area, including medieval towns such as Mirepoix with its bustling market every Monday morning, and the swimming lakes at Puivert and Montbel to enjoy in the summer. Or you can simply relax with a glass of wine on the terrace, taking in the magnificent views as the sun sets.
The spacious living room, enormous kitchen-diner with huge farmhouse table, and terrace make this a great house for convivial eating, drinking and making merry! 20% discount given for a couple renting

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
In general the climate in The Aude region enjoys a Mediterranean climate, hot dry summers, rainy winters, moderate spring and autumn. July and August are hot and dry, September can be quite humid. October is a perfect month, the humidity is gone, the vines are changing colour, and days are warm and sunny.
The Aude stretches from the Mediterranean in the east to Castelnaudary in the west, the Montagne Noire in the north and the Pyrénées in the south and is blessed with some of the most scenic countryside in France, stunning coastline and mountainous landscape, with forests and mountain pastures, world-renowned Roman buildings, medieval towns and abbeys, making it an excellent destination for every walk of life.
Within 2 hours you could enjoy a day at the beach along the Mediterranean coast, Duty-free shopping and skiing in Andorra or wander about the Catalan city of Perpignan.
The Carcassonne area
The modern city of Carcassonne is built around two medieval cities, the original hill top Cité of Carcassonne on the north side of the river Aude, and the thirteenth century Bastide of Carcassonne on the South side of the River Aude.
The Cité of Carcassonne is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the largest medieval town with its city walls intact. It has been the setting for many films featuring medieval castles and in recent years it has become a major tourist attraction
The Bastide was built at a later date when the French expelled the inhabitants of the original Cite, not trusting them to maintain the place against allies. Today the Bastide has been swallowed by the modern city, but you can still make out the layout of the road grid
During the 11th century, a religious group called The Cathars appeared in Europe and by the 13th century it was the main religion in the region much to the upset of the catholic church and a war was waged. During this period an estimated 500,000 men, women and children were massacred, this crusade has been described as one of the greatest disasters ever to befall Europe. Evidence of the Carthars still remain in the area such as the fortress of Montségur and villages of Montaillou and Prades
Carcasonne is located along the Canal du Midi, the oldest working canal in the world which was once used for commerce but now for leisure. Explore the scenic waterway either by barge, walk or cycle, with various places to eat and drink along the way.
Other activities in the area include mountain walks for all ages and difficulty, horse riding, cycling, white water rafting, canoeing, swimming at Puivert and at Lac Montbel , skiing in the Pyrenees or enjoy a wander round the bustling Monday market at the medieval town of Mirepoix
