The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Carcassonne 30 min from Ryanair airport, fantastic fortified city and cultural events, restaurants and golf. Lagrasse 30 min is one of the most beautiful villages in France and offers spectacular scenery and a huge choice of restaurants for a memorable night out. Good shopping also.

Mediterranean beaches 70 min which stretch from Montpellier down to the Spanish border. Wonderful sandy beaches with tasteful entertainments and beachfront restaurants and cafés. The 'Etang de L'Ayrolle' offers some of the best windsurfing in Europe.

Wine tasting everywhere, numerous private caves and roadside vendors. Beautiful vineyards (Corbieres, Minervois and Fitou) and impressive valleys and rivers.

Don't miss the Canal du Midi for walking and cycling. Lake swimming and rafting just north of Carcassonne. Enjoy the natural springs at Aix-les-Bains and treat yourself to an extravagant lunch across the Spanish border. Or venture to Barcelona (2hrs 30 mins) for a long weekend.

Fantastic and spectacular scenery along the Côte Vermaille and the lovely beach resorts and harbour at Collioure and Banyuls.

Historic Cathar trails throughout the region, wih lots of ancient villages boasting churches, castles and forts.

Limoux

The property is located in the village of Malras, 5 min outside Limoux, 30 min south of Carcassonne. Limoux has all shops, supermarket, many café bars and restaurants and a delightful central square.

The town is famous for its 'Blanquette' - a serious rival for Champagne, at a fraction of the cost! But do try wine tasting at Sieur d'Arques and Jean Babou (on way into Limoux), both famous for their Blanquette (now being sold by Tesco) and Cremant

All Summer there is free music and entertainment in Limoux town square (Place de Republique). In early September there is a fantastic week-long Fete, with markets, stalls and outside, classy music and entertainment (all free), the next week the fascinating mediaval town of Mirepoix ( 30 mins drive) has similar events.

In late March/early April there is the enchanting Toques et Clocher, first season's wine tasting and music event. It runs from Friday to Sunday and each village in the local area gets the privilege of hosting it - it was Malras's turn 3 years 'ago.

Do drive over the hills to Chalabre (30 mins) for the most stunning views of the Pyrenees and on a little further to the village of Puivert, with its Cathar fort and excellent, tailored-for-kids, swimming lake.
