Eco credentials...

Equipped with modern facilities, this house is eco friendly, with solar powered electricity and its own water source. Care and consideration has been given to ensure that the beauty of its surroundings have been retained and are not compromised.

Fantastic wildlife...

For wildlife lovers endless varieties of butterflies and mayflies dance on multitudes of wild flowers, trout swim in the river, birds soar above and lizards sunbathe in the hot sun. Spot a brightly coloured fire salamander surfacing after the rain or a heron fishing in the river. Red squirrels reside in the garden, roe deer wander through and our nocturnal visitors include badgers, wild boar and pipistrelle bats...emerging at dusk to give an early evening display.

Go for hikes in the mountains, have a dip in the swimming pool or the river, laze on the beautiful lawn. Watch the bright stars at night whilst eating on the large terrace - there's little light pollution here.

The best of both worlds...

If you are looking to get away from it all but still be close to major site seeing attractions Le Cabanial is definitely for you.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Inland Languedoc is a beautiful area, characterised by vineyards and "garrigue", arid rocky Mediteranean hills with their vegetation of scrub, aromatic bushes and occasional fields. Further inland, the valleys of the Cevennes, more wooded and rural, give way to the Cevennes hills, the southeastern peaks of the Massif Central.

The area has a lot of historic cities, such as Nimes with its superb Roman remains, the famous walled city of Carcassonne, the former Roman provincial capital of Narbonne, and other smaller ancient cities, such as Agde .

The Pyrenees, forming a natural land barrier between France and Spain, are a beautiful range of high mountains, wooded on their lower slopes, but offering good mountain and hill walking higher up - not to mention the attraction of day trips into Spain. The coastline where they meet the sea is unlike the rest of the Languedoc coast, and is characterised by old coastal villages such as Banyuls and Collioure, rocky cliffs and small coves. The villages on the Pyrenean coastline can be reached directly by train.

Villeneuve Minervois

History and Culture

The area is rich with historical and cultural sites:

Weekly markets are held at many nearby villages where delicious regional produce can be purchased. Take a whole day to savour the sights, sounds and smells of these bustling events. Carcassonne – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; Castelnaudary – Monday; Caunes Minervois – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; Lezignan – Wednesday.


Carcassonne Cité, a World Heritage Site, lies in the heart of the Languedoc Roussillon on the plains of the lower valley of the River Aude. Steeped in twenty centuries of history, Carcassonne is alive all year round with cultural activities. Each July a festival celebrating music, theatre and dance is held within the magnificent "Grand Theatre de la Cité" including a spectacular firework display on 14th of July.

Canal du Midi

Built in the 17th Century the Canal du Midi runs for 240 kilometres and is filled by a complex system of feeder canals and reservoirs. The towpaths are lined with 300 year old Plane trees which provide shade from the hot sun whilst you stroll or cycle from lock to lock. Organised boat trips are available daily as is boat hire for the more adventurous. This World Heritage Site will truly inspire you and is one not to miss.


Classified as "Plus Beaux Villages de France" (one of the most beautiful villages of France) Minerve is the ancient capital of the Minervois. Set between the gorges of Rivers Cesse and Brian, Minerve will surprise you with its exceptional surroundings and its amazing history.

Gouffre Géant de Cabrespine

Gouffre Géant de Cabrespine (Giant Hole) is part of a large Karstic site which was created several million years ago. Explorations made so far have revealed more than 17 kilometres of amazing rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites in galleries of levels varying from 200-250 metres high – about the height of the second floor of the Eiffel Tower!

Cathar Castles

Catharism enjoyed a Golden Age in the early years of the 13th Century. Castles were built by noblemen at the very summits of mountains for protection and shelter. Visit and explore the remains of Peyrepertuse, Queribus, Lastours, Puylaurens, Puyvert and Montségur and enjoy a birds eye view of the stunning surrounding countryside.
