The Languedoc-Roussillon region

This wine and sunflower growing region is perfect for exploring rural France, whatever your interest - whether it is the history of the Cathars, the pre-historic caves of the Haute Pyrenees, the coastal beaches, walking and adventure sports in the foothills and mountains, or simply enjoying the life, wine, food and weather of Southern France. In the Winter, Les Barraux is just a 50 minute drive from the family-friendly ski-resorts of the Haute Pyrenees.


Fanjeaux (5km) was once the capital of the Occitan troubadours and has winding streets, restaurants, a bakery, butchers and a Saturday market. Mirepoix (8km) is another Cathar stronghold with a breathtaking medieval square full of restaurants and craft stalls. The World Heritage Medieval City of Carcassonne is just 25 minutes away and the Canal du Midi is on the way. Alternatively take a short car journey to the mountains for adventure activities, walking, visiting pre-historic caves and seeing more spectacular Cathar strongholds. There are lots of wine cellars to explore, and the Mediterranean is within easy reach with its fun parks and beaches.
