Some of the many great places to visit:

A car is advised, so that you can get out of the village and explore the Cathare Region - it's beautiful chateaux and scenery, though it is not essential as you can reach Quillan by train from the airport for just 1e throughout the summer, you do have everything you need in the village within walking distance to have a very enjoyable holiday.

15 mins by car

Puivert – Chateau and lake with beach/swimming settled in the mountains. Museum within the village and interesting to climb the chateau, great views from the top. Pedalo hire, park and tennis courts at the lake and you can even fly a glider if you dare!

Esperaza – Gorgeous Sunday morning market showcasing the diverse local culture, produce and crafts, including spiritual stones, handmade honey, jewellery, fruits, bags. A really vibrant wake up to any Sunday.

Rennes les Bains – Riverside picnic area with a chance to bathe in the natural hot spa water spirting from the rocks – lots of fish in the shallow water. There is also a swimming pool and thermal healing spa centres.

Rennes le chateau – Steeped in history of the cathare times, step inside the small chapel featured in Da Vinci Code, perched on the top of the hill. Fabulous views of the region and a very interesting place.

Gorges St Georges & Axat – Drive south from the property and you will pass through some breathtaking scenery on your route to Axat. Canyons with a river passing through (this is where the white water rafting is at its best).

30 minutes by car

Lac Montbel – A vast mountain lake for swimming and sailing. Great picnic day out.

Limoux – Market day is Friday, another vibrant town. Have a coffee in the main square, sit back and let the bustle of the shoppers breeze by.

1hr by car

Carcassonne – The largest chateau in Europe – a massive city inside a castle – many of the original buildings are still standing. A fine example of the Cathare castles – it is a must see! This City has not only the castle but a beautiful beack around a lake and an Australian Park too. Lots to do and see in Carcassonne. Take the train from Quillan for just 1e and arrive in the old town not far from the chateau.

1.5hrs by car

Narbonne Plage – Gruissan Plage – any of the beaches take approximately 1.5hrs to get to and are well worth the trip. Along near Narbonne you have a 7 mile stretch of sandy beaches not to be missed!

Spain – You can easily cross the border just south of Perpignan and be in the Catalan region of Spain within 1.5hrs – the route takes you through many villages and vineyards.

Andorra – The province of Andorra and its many duty free shops are reached by a beautiful route through the highest mountain areas of the Pyrenees.
