About this location
The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Aude bordering the department of Pyrenees Orientale (Catalunya with its own language) and Spain is one of the sunniest regions in France with a very high number of sunny days in the year.
Here the older people also speak a different dialect "Occitain" and Languedoc gets its name from langue (tongue) of the "0c".
The whole area really is a beautiful part of the world, a newspaper in recent years referred to it as "the undiscovered part of France equal to the Provence.
During the summer you will find all the different villages and towns put on 'fetes' which can be anything from an event based on a theme with stalls and entertainment free to all to visit, such as the fete of the cherry harvest. To 3 or 4 day events in villages with bands and amusements free of charge and temporary bars and food for a small charge. In the bigger towns of Narbonne, Carcassonne and Perpignan they will have festivals lasting much longer. Information and itinerary can be found at the local tourist offices.
The town of Perpignan has quaint historic backstreets with shops and bars and restaurants full of character, and the Palace of the Kings of Majorca (Palais de Rois de Majorque).
Narbonne has the historic indoor market selling all kinds of local produce to feast your eyes upon (well worth a visit) and the large outside market around it on Thursday and Sunday mornings. Then not to be forgotten is the medieval city of Carcassonne, with its ancient city walls and turrets, looking like something out of a fairytale. There are several shops and very reasonably priced good restaurants within its walls, something for everyone.
Montgaillard the village itself has a couple of banquets during the summer (see the representative for the dates)
The local villages of Tuchan, Paziols, Cucugnan and others have their own 3 or 4 day fetes with bands and last day meal (about 15 euros per person) during the summer, you can usually find something going on somewhere most of the summer.
The nearby village of Pereypertuse sous le Chateau has medieval fetes throughout the summer with shows of falconry etc.

"A unique property with stunning views"
We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 small kids) and we stayed at Beauregard D'Avalon in August 2014. We drove from Narbonne through stunning countryside to the hilltop village of Montgaillard and found the villa perched at the very top of the village. We were warmly welcomed and shown around the house and pool. The pool is a beautiful infinity pool which overlooks an almost 360 degree view of forest and vineyards. The house is comfortable and spacious, it suited us perfectly. We ventured out only once or twice as most of our time was spent with the kids in or by the pool! The nearest shop was 30 minutes drive away in Tuchan and we enjoyed buying bread and croissants from the 'bread man' who visits the village a couple of times a week. We have never stayed in such a beautiful location, the views are spectacular. We highly recommend this villa.

"Relaxing hilltop hideaway"
We've stayed at this cottage twice now and we've enjoyed it both times. The cottage is in a very quiet and private location and enjoys lovely views from the balcony and swimming pool. The owner's rep in the village is very friendly and helpful and gives tips on places to visit and where to shop etc. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and has everything you would need. The area is a delight for driving and cycling. Very nice restaurants at Cucugnan, particularly the one at the entrance to the village under the windmill. For days out Carcassonne is a must and if you like the seaside then the pretty colourful village of Collioure is quite reachable - just don't arrive at lunchtime if you have to park a car. Reversing out of the cottage driveway is not for the nervous driveway, but you soon get the knack. No big shops nearby, so come prepared.

"A fantastic secluded gite with outstanding views and fabulous pool."
This gite was fantastic. On arrival we were met by the key holder who was polite and very helpful with a full knowledge of the local area. The Gite was clean and tidy and beautifully set in the surrounding mountains. We took all our children age ranging from 6 to 21 and they all thoroughly loved it. The highlight for them was the amazing pool with its fantastic views. The temp was 28' at night and 42' during the day, so if you love the heat August is the time to go.The children loved all the local wildlife, we found a harmless snake, praying mantis, lizards, beautiful butterflies, huge crickets, there are also wild boars and scorpions....but dont let that put you off they left us alone!
Because the Gite is very secluded up the mountain shopping for supplies is recommended on the way back from days out and on the way to your holiday. The fact that it is secluded was definitely a bonus.
A Beautiful Place to enjoy a family holiday.

"Extremely disappointing - Did not even stay one night."
This property was 'scruffy' and unfresh. The place smelled of damp and the bedding was 'well used'. We have rented Villas for the last 12 years and have always been happy with t… More
This person booked the property in the low season from the rental group, did not read or understand that it was in a village a little remote but very beautiful, arrived on an unusually rainy day with no visibility (no chance of seeing the beauty) left without a word after special arrangements were made for them with the key to enter the property ahead of time, and then asked the company some time after for a refund and were refused as they had not contacted anyone at the time. Their comments are just not true. The property has been rented for the last six years with many very happy holidaymakers.
