The Languedoc-Roussillon region

CHALABRE IS LOCATED AT THE YELLOW CROSS, IN THE WESTERN PART OF THE DEPARTMENT OF THE AUDE (NAMED AFTER THE RIVER AUDE WHICH CROSSES IT), SOUTH OF THE PYRENEES MOUNTAINS, WEST OF THE MEDITERRANEAN, NEAR THE BOUNDARY OF THE DEPARTMENTS OF THE ARIEGE (major city: FOIX) AND THE PYRENENEES ORIENTALES (major city: PERPIGNAN).

THE AUDE'S MAIN CITY IS CARCASSONNE (30 MILES NORTH-EAST OF CHALABRE). CARCASSONNE IS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS MEDIEVAL CITIES IN SOUTHERN FRANCE. CARCASSONNE'S AIRPORT IS NAMED SALVAZA AND OFFERS DAILY FLIGHTS TO LONDON VIA RYANAIR.

Chalabre

CHALABRE (POP. 900 WINTER, 1200 SUMMER) IS LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE CATHAR COUNTRY, IN THE REGION KNOWN AS THE QUERCORB OR KERCORB, ALSO KNOWN AS THE "TERRE PRIVILEGIEE" (PRIVILEGED LAND) BECAUSE IN 1210 AD THE KING OF FRANCE EXEMPTED ITS CITIZENS FROM PAYING CERTAIN TAXES.

THREE RIVERS (the Hers, the Chalabreil and the Blau) MEET IN CHALABRE. THERE IS A COVERED MARKET, A 12TH CENTURY CHURCH, AND THE LOCAL CASTLE OF MAULEON. CHALABRE IS ALSO LOCATED A COUPLE OF MILES EAST FROM THE LAKE OF MONTBEL (sailing, swimming, hiking, etc).

The town center is made up of a small, square-shaped medieval quarter of small streets with the Market in its center. It is called a Bastide. It is bordered by FOUR larger avenues or Cours, lined with plane trees, chestnut trees and fountains. Cours Sully is the South, Cours Raynaud is to the East, Cours d'Aguessau is to the North, and Cours Colbert is to the West. The property is located on Cours Colbert, on the lower west side.
