The Languedoc-Roussillon region

This is a beautiful region of France where vineyards and sunflowers abound.

Wine tasting is everywhere including in the village itself.

Thr Pyrenees are visible from many places locally and easily reached.

The location is wonderful too for visiting the many Cathar castles and of course the fairytale ancient cité of old Carcassonne is a must for young and old alike.

The "rose" city of Toulouse makes a great day out and of course the Mediterranean beaches are little over an hour away and only 2 hours to the borders with Spain.


The fortified town of Carcassonne- a restored medieval citadel is rich in culture. Villa Lauquet is also very close to Mirepoix- a small town with a very wide square with some ancient timber framed houses. It is well worth a visit for the weekly market which is held on Mondays. St Hilaire, just ten minutes away, has a beautiful ancient Abbey worthy of a browse. It also has a well stocked cave at the local wine growers co-op beside the Tennis courts. The Aude river runs through Limoux ( ), about fifteen minutes from the Villa. This Carnival town is a hive of activity in the Summer with open air entertainment, cafes and restaurants in the main square. It is probably best known for it's exquisite "Blanquette De Limoux, a must try for wine lovers of all tastes. Limoux is also on the local train line, so you can get there and back for 2€ if you don't want to drive.

Other local activities include canoeing, zip wire and tennis.

"Super house in a great location"

The house was super and had everything you could possible need. The local area was lovely and Carcassonne was great for a ramble around, but to be honest my highlight was sitting by the pool relaxing, reading a book and drinking Rosé wine. Dinner at the Chateau du'Cavanac (4km away) is a must also, French cooking at its best.

"Peace and quite in an idyllic setting"

My family and I stayed in Villa Lauquet last Summer for a week.

The house is a short drive from Carcassone itself, with a small local village on the doorstep.

The property's big attraction is its outside space. The pool is fantastic, and plenty big enough for kids and parents alike. The garden is spacious and private, nicely landscaped with lots of room for games and activities. We made plenty of use of the BBQ and enjoyed dining al-fresco for the whole holiday.

Inside, there's three good sized bedrooms, a great kitchen, and large living area with mezzanine.

It's a lovely house in a beautiful location.
