The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Cascastel is a great venue from which to explore the Cathar 12th Century castles which are perched amazingly on rocky outcrops that provide spectacular views. There is the nearby spa town of Rennes les Bain with its thermal baths, the mysterious Rennes le Chateau, the Roman port of Narbonne, the Canal du Midi, the fairy tale walled city of Carcassonne and numerous other sites of historical and architectural significance such as Abbey of Fontfroide.

Many of Europe’s migratory birds come along the coast here on their way to and from Africa. The etanges (lagoons) make for perfect Bird watching.


The village and surrounding area provide plenty to do. During the summer months there are often events in the village such as the vide-greniers and Fêtes taking place. Many of these include some kind of social event and of course a meal with plenty of local wine. The other villages in the area also have numerous social events and we can provide you with details of these.

Most villages have a restaurant including Cascastel. We can provide you with details of the best locally. In nearby Fontjoncouse is the regions own 3 star Michelin restaurant.

There are a number of nearby pools and gorges to swim in and also a campsite pool available at Tuchan which has a good café and is safe for young children.
