The Languedoc-Roussillon region

With an annual 300 days of sunshine and ski slopes and walking trails to suit all abilities, the Aude region offers a variety of activities all year round. If the hot weather of July and August is not for you, the mild and warm months of Spring and Autumn are perfect for sight seeing, walking, cycling and even a dip in the Med. Quillan has a number of stations for canoeing and white water rafting and adjacent lakes for swimming and sailing. National water sports events are frequently held here and the Tour de France regularly passes through the vicinity and actually visits the town on alternate years (2010) Nearby castles of Puivert, Puillarens, Queribus.

The town has a number of good restaurants and bars serving bistro food. There are several boulangeries - the best of which is just 3 minutes walk away - and all other shops and banks one would expect in a thriving French market town. There are estate agents to consult should you be tempted to buy a property in this beautiful area. Wednesdays and Saturdays are market days selling local produce and craft items and during July and August there is also a night market on Thursday.

A small cinema shows all the latest films (generally dubbed) and a small theatre is the venue for concerts and exhibitions. In the summer months entertainments are held in one of the town's two squares throughout July & August.

As the largest wine producing area of France there are many opportunities for tasting, especially Minervois, Rivesaltes and Blanquette de Limoux.
