The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
Villa Wisteria is situated in the warm, Mediterranean region of France, which boasts in excess of 300 days of sunshine a year. The location benefits from long, hot summers and brief, mild winters. It is nestled among vineyards and the picturesque Corbieres hills, with the medieval Durban castle in view.
The area is steeped in history, ranging from castles, the walled city of Carcassonne, monasteries, museums and not forgetting the magnificent Canal du Midi which can be accessed a short drive away. The thriving towns of Narbonne, Perpignan with it's vibrant mix of influences and Beziers are all within a 30 minute drive, beaches are plenty in the area, skiing in the Pyrenees is less than a 2 hour drive.
For the outdoor enthusiast there is golf, tennis, safari parks, water sports, sailing, swimming, cycling, hiking/hill walking, horse riding, fishing, gourmet dining, mountain biking, photography, shopping, sightseeing, wine tasting and wine touring.
The African Reserve at Sigean is one of the most highly rated wildlife parks in Europe and is a mere 20 minute drive from the villa.
For food and wine lovers, there is a wide selection of local markets and restaurants available. The increasingly popular Languedoc wine is a highlight for many visitors, and can be tasted at the many châteaux of the region.
Wine tasting is a popular hobby in this region.

The village of Durban-Corbieres is a mere 5 minute walk. It has a supermarket, restaurant, bar, bakery, newsagents (daily English newspapers available), pharmacy, bank (has outdoor atm), post office, garage, petrol pumps, car wash, Cave co-op (local winery), doctor's surgery, boutique, some houses along the way even sell local honey! An on-site pizza delivery comes to the village once a week, a travelling butcher on another afternoon.
