The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The Languedoc-Roussillon region comprises five departments and the house is in Aude close to the border with Pyrenees-Orientale the two southernmost departments.

The region is is one of the sunniest in France and along its 150 mile coastline are miles of sandy beaches backed by a hinterland rising up to the foothlls of the Pyrenees in the south. As well as the major towns of Montpellier, Nimes, Perpignan and Carcassonne, all of which are full of character, there is plenty of wild countryside.

Tuchan

You can visit the local hill-top Cathar castle, Chateau d'Aguilar, and even more interesting to visit are Queribus (just past Cucugnan) and Peyrepertuse. The fortified town of Carcassonne is close enough for a day out; visit Lagrasse on the way out/back (medieval town centre and Abbey). Fontfroide Abbey and the cities of Narbonne and Perpignan are worth a visit.

The local gorges on the way to Cucugnan and especially the Gorges de Galamus (park and visit the Hermitage) north of St Paul de Fenouillet are spectacular. South towards Estagel are good views of the Pyrenees, especially in the winter. The highest peak is Pic de Canigou (the peak which can be seen from the top floor of the house on a clear day). You can drive to the Pyrenees in 2 hours to visit the fortified town of Villefranche de Conflent and ride on the 'Little Yellow Train';

The nearest beaches are less than one hour away. The most direct route to the beaches is the mountain road that goes through to Bacares or alternatively drive to Perpignan and to Canet or further south to the picturesque village of Collioure.

There is a safari park in Sigean and Tautavel has a museum for the 'Oldest Man in Europe' (the bones of Tautavel Man found nearby are estimated to be 450,000 years old).

In the winter the ski resorts (Font Romeu, Les Angles) are close enough for a day's skiing.

"Great place, great location"

Love this place. Been here many times now both with the new owners and previous. As another review states it's not some luxury villa with pool but it's a great French house. Plenty of room,… More

"Amazing place to keep going back to.... and I do!"

Linda and John are very caring of their guests and ensure everything is in place. This is not only about a bottle of wine, enough to create a late dinner, beautifully clean and fresh linen and rooms,… More

"Lovely, welcoming property in a beautiful part of France."

Would highly recommend this property - very comfortable and better equipped than our home in England!!. Stayed with family (wife and 3 children aged 11, 13 and 15) and really loved the peace and tranquility of the area, although there is lots to do within a short drive or hiking / cycling from the doorstep. No need to go to the beach as there are so many natural swimming holes locally which are much quieter.
Enough facilities in the village and the locals are all very friendly.
