The Occitanie region

Situated in the center of the Cathar region Maison Loli, with hill top castles and the medieval city of Carcassonne nearby, is ideally positioned to take full advantage of all the Languedoc region has to offer. Beautiful scenery, captivating villages and fascinating history.


Just across the valley and visible from the cottage is the church and village of Rennes le Chateau, centre of a mystery still very much alive with many books written & films made on the subject. The mystery is one of sudden wealth of a village priest, secret codes and a search for treasure in the latter part of the 19th C. The link with the village is very strong - in 1852 Bérenger Saunière, the priest at the centre of the mystery was born in Montazels. Just type Montazels into any search engine and take your pick of the many web sites if you wish to delve deeper. Here you will find the story that gave rise to the Dan Brown book 'The Da Vinci Code'.

There are swimming lakes, horse riding, canoeing and white water rafting available all in the local area.

There are several local freshwater lakes with beaches for bathing. Open air bathing is also available at our local spas Rennes-les-Bain and Alet-les-Bain. The Mediterranean beaches are 90 minutes drive.
