The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the most fascinating areas of Europe, bordering the Mediterranean Sea to the east and the Pyrenees Mountains to the south. It benefits from an exceptional climate (a "Mediterranean Climate") and has an unusually rich wildlife, a spectacular coast, and surprising history. Things to see include mountains, rivers and lakes, ancient cities, towns, villages, thermal springs, abbeys, and cathedrals, châteaux and castles, notably the famous mountain fortresses popularly known as Cathar Castles. It possesses a number of World Heritage sites, including Carcassonne, the Canal du Midi, and the Pont du Gard.
In recent years it has become a popular French holiday destination, with long sunny days, Mediterranean beaches, tourist facilities, thousands of miles of walks, and rides, National Parks and wildlife reserves (such as the Camargue and the Cevennes), thermal springs and spas, grottoes and caves, and vestiges of the Languedoc's long history, including dinosaur bones and eggs, prehistoric human remains, dolmens and megaliths, geology, archaeology and palaeontology, Greek and Roman architecture, and everywhere reminders of the the Cathars, the papal Crusade against them, and the Papal Inquisition that followed the crusade.
Things to do in the Languedoc-Roussillon include a range of holidays, including naturist holidays and activity holidays. Sports include a wide range of land sports, water sports, air sports, mountain sports, winter sports, golf, hunting, shooting, hawking, and fishing. There are also numerous cultural activities, along with French regional food specialities, and Languedoc wines. Local festivals range from bull-running to the Fecos in Limoux and from sea-jousting in the north to celebrating la jour de St-Jean in the south by fire-jumping
The Aude département is in the South of France, in the Eastern part of the Languedoc-Roussillon region.
It is naturally popular for tourism : for its mild and dry climate, an incredibly wide variety of landscapes (the Mediterranean coast, mountains, wooded hills, spectacular limestone gorges, wild heathland...) and a fascinating cultural history.
In the Cathar country, between Perpignan and Toulouse, there are impressive fortresses perched on rocky crests, deep gorges, the waterfalls of the upper valley of the River Aude... The medieval city of Carcassonne has 3 kilometres of ramparts and 50 towers.
The Canal du Midi, an 18th century engineering masterpiece, links the Atlantic ocean and the Mediterranean sea. The sunny vineyards of the Corbières and the Minervois, the sparkling Blanquette de Limoux, the forests of the Pyrenees and the Montagne Noire and the traditional festivities of the Limoux Carnival make the region a rich and unique place to visit or to live in, always with the legacy of Catharism.
Cailla situated in the heart of the Cathar country is an ideal centre to visit the Cathar castles of Puylaurens and Puivert as well as all the natural features of the area. Both the Mediterranean coast and the Pyrenean skiing resorts are within an hour's drive of the town. Andorra is about 1 1/2 hours away.
The mysterious hill-top village of Rennes-le-Château is only a short drive. In the nearby villages of Axat and Quillan you can find open-air swimming pools (summer months) and tennis courts. Roc Aqua in Cailla and The La Forge centre in Quillan offers a wide range of sports including canoeing, rafting, rock-climbing, canyoning. Rambling, mountain biking and horse-riding are excellent with a wide range of marked paths through spectacular scenery. In the village of Cailla you can also go hiking with donkeys and if you are a child you can ride on them.
Quillan has a full range of shops, banks, cafes and restaurants, hotels, camp-sites, doctors and dentists
