Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

The village of Caudies De Fenouilledes is situated in the Cathare Region of the Languedoc Rousillon province of France. Nestling in the foothills of the Pyrenees along a glacial river plane the region is rich in scenery and things to do. The countryside around the village is delightful with wild flowers, fruit and nut trees, birds of prey, lizards, butterflies and of course the famed vineyards of this internationally renowned wine producing region.

In the spring the vintners tidy up the vines and the fields are abundant with wild orchids, arguably the best walking season with the fresh invigorating air not yet too hot for energetic walkers.

In the summer the air becomes heavily scented by the wild fig and walnut trees, the rosemary and thyme, the fennel and the juniper.

Autumn sees the end of the vendage and there is something quintessentially romantic in the little tractors overflowing with rich ripe grapes, and the foliage along the valley turning myriad shades of rust and red.
The winter is cold here, but nonetheless beautiful with it. It is high enough to enjoy a dusting of snow, but not too high to make it inaccessible.

Whatever your holiday preference we are certain you can find it in this beautiful setting.


For the Adventurers


The river Agly runs the length of the valley into the neighbouring region of the Aude, where the water is forced through the narrow gorge offering a number of opportunities to enjoy this rocky stretch of water, whether it be rafting, canyoning, rock climbing, kayaking etc it is all provided by numerous companies a short ride from the house.
Horse riding, mountain biking and hiking are also popular activities in the area owing to its outstanding natural beauty.
There are several fabulous and less crowded ski resorts within 45 minutes of the property offering both cross country and downhill skiing for all abilities.


For the Wine Taster


What better place to indulge your knowledge of wine than here in the heart of largest wine producing region and in close proximity to the village of Maury known for the wine of the same name. There are four caves in the village alone, with many more within an easy drive, or on the tourist train, or for the more energetic with bike. The wines are excellent and varied and well worth a comparison test.


For the Sun Seeker


There are probably no better places to enjoy the scorching sunshine than at one of the many gorges, beachy rivers, plan d'eaus, natural springs, lakes and picnic areas abundant in the area, all beautifully peaceful and serene and surrounded by the most spectacular countryside.
During the months of July and August the neighbouring village of Fosse, a short ten minute drive away hosts a full size open air swimming pool with lifeguard, and entry is free.
There are also several other open air pools in short driving distance which do charge a small entrance fee.

For the real beach lover
Caudies is an easy 45 minute drive from the beaches of the Mediterranean, and there are a number of resorts to enjoy, whether you prefer quiet sandy dunes north of Barcares, the lively beach bars of Canet Plage or a little further to the historically and architectural beauty of Colliure home of famous artists such as Van Gogh and Picasso.

For the History Seeker


The are many attractions accessible for a day visit including Cathare castles, Romanesque churches, including the Church of St Madeleine at Rennes le Chateau featured in The Da Vinci Code, stunning gorges, thermal baths, not to mention the breath-taking medieval walled city of Carcassonne which is 45 miles away. Also of great interest is the ancient yet cosmopolitan city of Perpignan, famed for its Castle of the Majorcan Kings, which features great shops and dining opportunities and is just 34 miles away.

Caudies de Fenouilledes

The village of Caudies de Fenouilledes is a short drive from Saint Paul and has comprehensive facilities, with the village shops only a few minutes' walk from the house. It can be so uplifting to take a morning stroll to the excellent boulangerie to buy a stick of delicious bread, or one of their more tempting delicacies.

There is a small but well stocked village shop (selling English newspapers), a pharmacy, post office and excellent butchers (try the saucisse fraiche for breakfast). There are two motor repair garages at either end of the village, one of which operates a bookable taxi service.
There is a good local restaurant with garden terrace providing excellent value for money, and a local bar, and most importantly there are four caves – shops that sell locally produced wine – all within walking distance.
During the summer months a tourist train operates along the valley stopping at each village or town along the route, the station at Caudies being situated beside the largest of the caves at the end of the village, and provides an excellent resource for viewing the countryside, and enjoying the wine tasting en-route!
The surrounding villages provide a wealth of excellent restaurants to tempt your taste buds and whether you prefer a relaxing beach or wine tasting holiday or an energetic hiking, skiing, rafting holiday it is all here for you to enjoy and discover.
