The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
This is Cathar country – one of the most inspiring and dramatic landscapes in Europe. Located in the heart of the picturesque Corbieres hills, Villa La Cascade is just perfect for either an activity packed holiday or a relaxing getaway. Within a short distance there are the ancient monasteries at Lagrasse and Fontfroide, medieval castles at Queribus and Peyreprtuse, the historic walled city of Carcassonne and the beautiful Canal du Midi meandering through the countryside north of the hills.
Nearby, the thriving market towns of Narbonne and Beziers provide a wide range of shops and services, whilst the city of Perpignan offers a vibrant mix of influences – more Catalan than French in atmosphere. Swimming and wind-surfing are available in the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean at Cap Leucate,just 30 minutes away. The snowy peaks of the Pyrenees rise dramatically the south and a range of winter sports are available in ski resorts only a 2 hour drive away. Golf, tennis, horse-riding and sailing are within easy reach and the hills are criss-crossed by lovely walks for every level, all with magnificent views to the foothills of the Pyrenees.
The Durban Corbieres area
Down the hill just 5 minutes walk away is the village of Durban - a typically southern French affair, with a café, supermarket, bank, pharmacy and of course the local cave cooperativeThe African Reserve at Sigean is one of the most highly rated wildlife parks in Europe and is a just 25 minutes drive from Villa La Cascade. The reserve provides an outstanding range of wildlife from lions, elephant, rhino and cheetahs and many more animals - all to be seen in a convincingly natural environment.(from the safety of your car!)
For lovers of food and wine, there's a wide choice. From local restaurants providing great food at reasonable prices to Michelin starred restaurants only a few minutes from the village. The rising star of Languedoc wine is the highlight for many visitors, numerous Chateaux providing ample opportunities for sampling and purchase at value for money prices that barely do justice to the exceptional quality. These are the reasons why we love the Corbieres. Combine it with the gorgeous climate, the lovely house and the uniquely relaxed pace of life to be found in the South of France and you have all the ingredients for the perfect holiday.
