The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Languedoc-Roussillon is famous for its warm, sunny climate and its mix of sandy beaches, stunning gorges and majestic mountains. This magical land - covered with acre after acre of vineyards & caves and studded with ancient Cathar fortresses, hilltop medieval villages, historic chateaus and churches - offers visitors an almost limitless range of activities for young and old alike. There is hiking, climbing, cycling, horseback riding, windsurfing or rafting for the atheletically inclined to calmer pursuits such as antique hunting, market browsing, wine tours, museum visits, river & lake fishing, picnicing or sunbathing on a sundrenched beach for those just looking to relax in a stress-free environment. However you choose to spend your time in the Midi, you will surely leave with unforgettable memories and a yearning to return.


In the immediate vicinity are the world-famous, tree-lined Canal du Midi, the medieval Cathar stronghold village of Minerve and Lac Joarres for boating, windsurfing and freshwater swimming and the market town of Olonzac, seat of Le Minervois . . . all within a 5-10 drive from your apartment at Chateau Marcel.

"One of my best holidays ever"

We have just spent a marvellous 4 weeks in Chateau Marcel in Cesseras . The chateau is situated in a little village in stunning countryside a very convenient 40 minute drive from Carcasonne airport, 5… More

We really enjoyed these guests - who stayed for a full month - and we were, in fact, fortunate enough to be invited to a gourmet dinner prepared by the husband who is a professional chef . . . truly a memorable evening's meal in good company. On the subject of air-conditioning, I must say that during the renovation process we had to make the painful decision whether or not to install noisy air-conditioning units onto the exterior of the chateau. We decided that it would spoil the look of the place, ruin the tranquilty of the courtyard and drive up prices as well since we include all utilities in our rental rates. I guess one would have to say that we made a conscious decision to compromise with ceiling fans and retain the historic and architectural integrity of the chateau, avoid noise pollution and keep prices at affordable levels. Anyway, thanks for the feedback and we're glad you enjoyed your stay.
