This lovely, beautifully presented very clean gite, for adults only, is just 1km from the Canal du Midi on the edge of the small, but lively town of Trebes - a bustling little canal port. You can walk there in 15-20 minutes. It's an excellent location for you if you want to explore the fascinating medieval city of Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi, the Cathar Castles, Narbonne, Beziers and the Mediterranean coast.

The gite is located in what was previously a wine domaine which dates back several hundred years. The buildings here surround a large courtyard. Gite Colombe and it's terrace is across the courtyard and separate from the owners' own residence.

The owners will welcome you and will be on hand to answer any questions you may have, but will not be intrusive.

With a pleasant terrace for you to enjoy the warm climate and access to an indoor swimming pool from June to the end of September for a refreshing dip - this property is ideal for a couple or two couples holidaying together.

The town of Trebes dates back to Roman times and has both the Canal du Midi and the River Aude flowing through it. The lock on the Canal here attracts lots of on-lookers as the pleasure boats pass through it. Boat trips are available from the port area. Trebes boasts all facilities: a boulangerie, supermarkets, cafe-bars and restaurants and a wealth of local shops.

A car is recommended here.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

This part of the Languedoc has a sunny Mediterranean climate and regularly enjoys more than 300 days with sunshine each year. It can be hot in high summer, but there is often a cooling breeze. Now the 3rd most visited region in France by British people, the Languedoc offers something for everyone.

Miles of long, sandy beaches, coastal lagoons, vibrant cities such as Beziers, Narbonne and Montpellier, historical sites such as the Canal du Midi, Carcassonne and the Cathar castles, fabulous scenery, great cuisine and vineyards, vineyards, vineyards.


Trebes is in an ideal location just 15 minutes from Carcassonne and its airport, and approximately one hour from Toulouse and Beziers. The A61 motorway is just 2 minutes away by car. As well as being a great little town to use as a base for exploring the Lanugedoc region - you are only about 1hr 30 minutes drive to the Spanish border - so a day trip to Spain is more than possible too. Trebes has all the amenities you might need: wide variety of shops, supermarkets, cafe-bars and restautants and the town is easily walkable from the gite.

Sports Facilities: Walking and cycling are really enjoyable in this area and especially in summer in the shade of the plane trees along the Canal du Midi. If cycling is your hobby we can recommend a local bike hire company who can deliver bikes to your door - please enquire. For water sports enthusiasts, swimmers and sunbathers, the Mediterranean beaches are just a 40 minute drive away. Other swimming facilities are available more locally at Lac de la Cavayere and Lac du Jouarres both nearby. There's a golf course in Carcassonne - and opportunities to enjoy rock climbing, and canoe-kayaking in the area.

Sightseeing: There's a wealth of places to visit - the fascinating medieval city of Carcassone, the picturesque and ancient towns of Mirepoix and Limoux, the ancient Cathar stronghold of Minerve and the various Cathar castles, the interesting towns of Narbonne and Beziers and the fantastic city of Toulouse (the European space capital).

Wine tours:Of course this area is one of France's biggest wine-producers - and you can try and buy the wines of the many wine-producers around here. The owners of this property are pleased to offer you a guided wine tour for a very reasonable price - please enquire.

Markets: Trebes has a market on a Sunday morning, and there's one in Carcassonne on a Saturday. The town of Olonzac also has a market on a Tuesday morning. In Narbonne you'll find a large indoor food market in 'Les Halles' open every day including Sunday until lunchtime.

Restaurants: There are several restaurants in Trebes to suit all budgets and tastes - and a very wide selection in Carcassonne. The owners of this lovely gite will drive you to a nearby restaurant on one of the evenings during your stay and will also come back to collect you - this is at no cost to you and is part of their service.

Supermarket: You have the choice of no less than three in Trebes.
