The Occitanie region

Located in the heart of the herb scented Corbieres, Residence Belle Vue overlooks a range of beautiful hills that stretch north of the Spanish border and sweep inland from the Mediterranean. The area is blessed with a wonderful climate, enjoying over 300 days of sunshine annually the Languedoc has long hot summers and brief, mild winters. It is an area steeped in history recently immortalised by the books: Labyrinth and The De Vinci Code.

The historic village of Durban is sitauated in the middle of Cathar country, overlooked by an imposing castle it's a typical southern French affair with excellent amenities including a café restaurant, bar, supermarket, bank and florist. There is also a hairdresser, pharmacy, dentist and doctors.

Vineyards, monasteries and castles are scattered throughout the area whilst the fine sandy beaches of the Mediterranean are about 30 minutes away. Many fine restaurants are close to the village including the aclaimed three starred Michelin restaurant at Fontjoncourse (a 15 minute drive away).


Within a 30 minute drive the thriving market towns of Narbonne and Lezignan Corbieres provide a wide range of shops and services, whilst the city of Perpignan close to the Spanish border offers a vibrant mix of influences – more Catalan than French in atmosphere. Swimming and wind-surfing are available in the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean at Cap Leucate , just 30 minutes away.

The peaks of the Pyrenees rise dramatically in the south and a range of sports activities are available in the alpine resorts within striking reach of the cottage.
