The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Montazels is at the centre of the Cathar region, with hill top castles and the medieval city of Carcassonne to remind you of the fascinating and often tragic history for which this region is renowned. Just across the valley from the cottage is Rennes le Chateau, centre of a mystery still very much alive with many books written and films made on the subject. The mystery is one of sudden wealth, secret codes and a search for treasure in the latter part of the 19th C. The link with the village is very strong - in 1852 Bérenger Saunière, the priest at the centre of the mystery was born in Montazels. Just type Montazels into any search engine and take your pick of the many web sites if you wish to delve deeper. Here you will find the story that gave rise to the Dan Brown book 'The Da Vinci Code'.


There are several local freshwater lakes with beaches for bathing. The nearest is Arques (7 mins drive). Open air bathing is also available at our local spas, Rennes-les-Bain and Alet-les-Bain. The Mediterranean beaches are 90 minutes drive.

Couiza, at 15 minutes walk is our nearest village & has 2 boulangeries, a supermarket, cash machine, hair salon, pharmacy, 2 bars and 3 restaurants within a 15 minute walk. The larger towns of Quillan and Limoux with are a 20 minute drive. There is a footpath for a walk to Rennes-le-Chateau and numerous Cathar castles can be reached in under an hours drive.

Whether skiing in the Pyrennees, enjoying the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean or exploring hill top Cathar Castles, 'Maisons de Montazels' are ideally placed to enjoy all the Languedoc has to offer.

"Gite with great views, lots of character and friendly neighbours"

We stayed here for 6 months in 2013 and 2 weeks in 2014. The only reason we did not rate this place higher is that the chateau wall collapsed and blocked the access road (this was in no way any fault of the owners). This is a great base for exploring a fascinating and beautiful area. We would stay here again.

Thank you for your positive comments. Fortunately the vehicle access problem is only temporary and soon to be rectified, unlike reviews which are permanent.

"A first class property in a magnificent area."

From the moment we arrived at Maison de Vignes we were impressed. None if the stark, barely equipped feel that comes with some gites, this felt like a home and was really well equipped for all our needs. The living room was very comfortable and had TV, DVD player and CD player, along with a selection of DVDs, CDs and books. The bedrooms were beautiful and furnished simply, but very tastefully. Plenty of chairs for outdoor seating and although on the side of a road, most days there wasn't a single car went by. The view! I could have sat and watched the view all day. We saw eagles and hoopoes from the front door. The area is so full of things to do. For us it was spotting wild flowers (which were exceptional) and walking. On other occasions it could be the history and the chateaux, the towns, villages and markets. So many reasons to go back, which we undoubtedly will do. No hesitation in recommending this property to anyone who enjoys France and its beautiful countryside and way of life.

Thank you for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Maison de Vigne.
