About this location

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The Aude is the "other south of France". It's one of the departments in Languedoc-Roussillon. Other than the Mediterranean beaches and resorts it's a relatively undiscovered vacation destination.

You'll be hard pressed to find tee shirts and ball caps except in the coastal tourist towns and in La Cite in Carcassonne.

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.

Carcassonne is the capital and the other major centres are Narbonne and Limoux.

With a population of about 310,000 the Aude represents .5% of the population of France and 14.1% of the population of Languedoc.


Les Gascous is on the border of Aude and Ariege, offering a tranquil hill top retreat with stunning views of the Sabarat Mountains and Montse'ger on a clear day.

Mirepoix is in the Ariege department of the Midi-Pyrenees near the border with the Languedoc-Roussillon and between Carcassonne and Foix. It is a beautiful medieval bastide town and Mirepoix should not be missed if you are in this area.

Mirepoix started life on the other side of the River Hers but following a terrible flood in 1209 which wiped out many of the villages in the area the town was rebuilt on the opposite bank. Mirepoix suffered during the Hundred Years War but then became an important textile centre in the 15th century.

"A lovely rustic house with very private grounds"

We stayed at Les Gascous with a group of friends from Australia. A lovely rustic house with very private grounds, beautiful pool and mountain views close to lovely Medieval Mirepoix. Comfy beds good linen and nice bathrooms made our stay a joy. We aim to come back as soon as possible. The Merringtons Melbourne

"A holiday of a life time!!!"

After reading the description of the accommodation and looking at the photos it was decided that this would be exactly the break I and the rest of my group wanted. Well all I can say is the description and photos as excellent as they are don't do the experience we had justice. It was the most relaxing holiday I think I (and my companions) have ever had. Although we were only 10 minutes away from the neareat ammenities the peace an tranquility of the location was seconded to none. We were a group of 8 and the concern can be that you are stepping on each others toes, but the accommodation is so spacious at no point did it feel crowded, indeed I feel you can go with a much larger group and still find this to be so. The accommodation it self is clean, airy and well equipped and as for the views and outside area there are no words to explain the magnificence and feeling of being completely free of the outside stresses of the world!!! I would more than highly recommend this to anyone who wanted a 'real' relaxation holiday. Thank You Les Gascous!!!!

"Beautiful, tranquil place with stylish and comfortable accommodation"

I stayed here with a group of friends last year. Although there were 10 of us we didn't feel cramped or on top of each other at all. The house is beautifully laid out, a great deal of thought has obviously gone into the planning and it works beautifully. Large, classic french kitchen with plenty of storage and work spaces. Really comfy and cozy living room for snuggling down in and all the bedrooms have their own unique charm and are finished really well. I stayed in the room with the four poster bed and really enjoyed the experience. The master bedroom is also really fab with the most amazing views from the balcony. The whole house is very spacious and I loved all the styling of the interior. The outside views are unbelievable and the landscaping of the garden and pool area is exquisite. I never wanted to leave! Very easy to get into the local town, short journey from the airport and also felt very safe due to the large gates and friendly locals. Totally recommend it for a beautiful 'get away from it all' holiday.
