Azille is a medieval town/village situated in Aude in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, famous for its food, wine, architecture and sunshine.

It is an easy drive to the historic and famous walled town and castle of Carcassonne. The Canal du Midi winds through Aude and the Minervois area, and is less than 2km from Azille. The Cathar trail runs through Aude and there are many historic remains and reminders of the Cathars and the Albigensian Crusade throughout.

Azille is close to the historic and picturesque towns of Minerve, Caune-Minervois, Narbonne and Beziers, and clean Mediterranean beaches are within easy reach. There are also many regular produce, antique and bric-a-brac markets within an easy drive of Azille.

Places of interest from between 5 - 40 minutes of Azille include the following:

* Carcassonne - with its spectacular walled city, a Bastide in the lower city and a port on the Canal du Midi.

* Canal du Midi - walk or ride alongside, sit in cafés and restaurants beside the Canal, or hire a boat for a day cruise on the Canal.

* Minerve - a spectacular fortified medieval village situated at the confluence of 2 river gorges. Minerve has an interesting museum and a range of interesting shops and galleries, as well as cafés and restaurants.

“Delightfully restored, well equipped & comfortable house in French village.”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2013

We enjoyed the house, the village and the province. The house has all amenities and equipment for a very comfortable stay. The village is historic and well worth exploring. Access to a car is essential as there are many places to visit, as well as great walks, climbs to ancient castles and cycling activities. The Canal du Midi and Carcasson deserve a special mention. The wine of the region is a well kept secret. We especially loved the full-bodied reds.
