The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The region has a Mediterranean climate with warm and sunny summers. The area has a lot to offer for everyone. There are many historical sites nearby but also a long almost uninterrupted white sandy beach and picturesque fishing village where all kind of water sports can be performed.
Nearby is both the historical city of Narbonne as well as the almost Spanish city of Perpignan. Both with their own identity and charm.
The place is also ideally suited for day trips to spectacular Chateaux de Cathares with Peyrepertuse, Queribus, Cucugnan, Padern and Aquilar in the vicinity and of course the Carcassonne about one hour away.
Since this is a wine area there are many wine yards to visit often with a nice restaurant. There are a lot of very good restaurants with the 2 star (Michelin) restaurants in Fontjoncouse as the brightest star.
The village Durban-Corbieres, in the Corbieres Mountains, is a small lovely and typical French village in the middle of the historical Cathar country.
The village has everything that you need for your stay, a supermarket, baker shop, bank, doctor, pharmacy, petrol station, bar and restaurant all close at hand.
Durban- Corbieres is located about 30 minutes from the coast at Leucate Plage and La Franqui as well as the city Narbonne. Perpignan is 45 min away.
The village also hosts many outdoor festivals during the summertime, where entry is normally free.

"A lovely relaxing location in a modern well equipped and comfortable villa."
We spent a lovely and relaxing week at this modern villa in late June. The house suited our family, with 2 grown up children, very well. It was comfortable and well equipped with lots of modern kit (and wifi) and the small pool was a treat to cool off in.
The village of Durban Corbieres is quiet but is in the scenic and historic Corbieres hills. It is well served by the local supermarket – the boulangerie ran out of bread and croissant quickly. It was a good location for us and we made some varied and delightful trips: for example to Carcassone and the Canal du Midi (hiring some bikes from Trebes was great) and down to the Pyrenees. We also loved the beach at Franqui (near Leucate) and the food at Place des Marches in Villesque de Corbieres.
There is lots to see and do in the wider area although a car is essential.

"Great location, great house"
Lovely clean, safe house in a complex. Private swimming pool. Short walk to small town with supermarket for essentials. Good base to explore the regions.

"A lovely gite, very well equipped and maintained, in a beautiful location with great views. with great views"
We had a fantastic holiday staying at this gite in Durban-Corbieres. The weather was very hot so we really appreciated the swimming pool. We ate out several times at bars and restaurants in nearby villages abd had some excellent meals. We visited Carcassonne, Narbonne, Cathar castles, Limoux, the Minervois valley - there are lots of places to visit nearby. The gite has a well designed interior, and the quality of the furnishings and equipment is very good and well maintained. The local representative was helpful when we arrived, though we did not need to call on her for help during our stay! The pool area is well laid out and has fantastic views - our only minor quibble was that it was difficult to find shade out there during the middle of the day when the temperature was in the mid-thirties. After our wet Summer in England I should not really complain!

"Excellent villa with amazing views of the surronding area"
The villa had everything we needed to make our two week stay very comfortable, the kitchen was fully equipped with all items one would require during their time at the property, from all cutlery and crookery to the coffee maker and barbecue. The pool provided hours of entertainment with outstanding views over the mountains, we cannot praise this villa enough, it certainly has the WOW factor and we would definatley stay there again.

"We could not have wished for more!"
In searching the web for a holiday house you would be wise to be sceptical of the perfect pictures posted, designed to lure you into making a booking. In this case however, the pictures of Villa Fleur de Montagne, as good as they are, simply do not do it justice. The house and its location are breathtaking!
We are family of 4 - mum, dad & two boys (aged 12 and 14) - and could not have wished for more. The standard of accommodation was first class, of high specification, clean and very well equipped. This is obviously a holiday home cherished by its owners, of impeccable taste, who make regular use of it themselves.
Located on the hill overlooking the village of Durban, just 10 minutes walk away, the house enjoys magnificent panoramic views of the village and surrounding hillside. There are a small number of similar holiday residences next to each other but you would never know it - privacy is well respected and no property is overlooking its neighbour.
If you can drag yourself away from the pool side, (the pool is of decent size and depth - not just ornamental), there is plenty to do and see but you'll find this well documented on other reviews.
I don't know why I'm telling you all this since it's the sort of place one may wish to keep as a special secret!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this delightful villa. The house is light and airy, the furnishings attractive, well planned and well kept. We particularly appreciated the very comfortable beds. The kitchen, although small, is well planned and well equipped. We found everything we could possibly need and cooked in most nights, making good use of the good quality oven, hob and dishwasher. The terrace and pool were a pleasure and we loved the wide view of the surrounding countryside. Everything was very clean and the local 'manager' very helpful. We would happily visit again. The surrounding countryside is very attractive and we had some good days out to Carcassone and the coast (Collioure is particularly recommended). The few restaurants within 20 mins of the villa were very quiet when we visited.

"Excellent value, superior facilities"
The house was well-presented with unfussy decor that made it perfect for adults and small children alike. The kitchen was modern and well-equipped and there were plenty of plates, utensils etc. The wireless worked well, the children loved the TV and everyone enjoyed the clean pool with the great view. It is a much shorter walk down a footpath to the village than the drive up the hill from Durban-Corbieres suggests.
