The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The Corbieres are full of natural delights and breathtaking sights -- rocky-cragged mountains, garrigue covered hillsides, river gorges, towering limestone cliffs, rich/fertile vineyards, and expansive vistas. The rich Cathar history feels like it was here just yesterday, even though Queribus (among the more than 12 other castles including Carcassonne) surrendered to Louis IX (Saint-Louis) in 1255. Additional medieval sights include L'Abbaye de Fontfroide, Lagrasse (which dates from Charlemagne), and Rennes-le-Chateau (with a Roman ancestry). One can see portions of the ancient Via Domitia -- the Roman road through the region from Briançon to La Junquera. Medeterranean beaches, towns, and villages start at 40 minutes away, but you may find the drive fascinating enough to take much longer, as you marvel at the region's beauty. Villeneuve's central location provides easy day trips to the many locations listed in the Distances section. Please contact the owners.

Step outside the front door and into the vineyards for a morning/evening stroll of 20 minutes to hours. Or take the two-hour round-trip hike to La Recaoufa, a shrine to the Virgin built around 1869 by Father Jean-Baptiste Peyre, priest to Villeneuve and Cascastel. The views will astound you.

For cyclists, the 2008 Tour de France route is at your doorstep. The Tour makes its way somewhere through the area each year.

And do not think that Maison Marcelin is only a summer destination. The autumn colours of the vineyards and hillsides are glorious -- the weather still warm but with the cool snap of the evening. Winter brings skiing with Pyrenees destinations only two hours away. And the renewal of spring will make your blood sing through your veins.

Please come visit and let the owners help you come to love les Corbieres as they do.

Durban Corbieres

The nearest beaches are about 40 minutes away at La Franqui or Leucate. Both have all amenities, including wind surfing rentals. Leucate tends to have better wind surfing conditions, because La Franqui is somewhat sheltered by the Leucate headland to its south. Many other beach areas lay all up and down the coast. The lovely seaside community of Collioure is a little over an hour away. This is where the Pyrenees meet the sea. Collioure and others to the south are well worth a day trip.
