Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

La Liviniere is situated on the southern lower slopes of the Montagne Noire with panoramic views right across the Aude valley to the Pyrenees, often snowcapped even in summer, beyond - about 40 miles (64 km) as the crow flies!

The Mediterranean with its wide sandy beaches and etangs where oysters and mussels are grown are less than an hour's drive away. It's an open countryside of vineyards with lots of small medieval villages, and behind are the mountains with their garrigue scrub and dramatic limestone cliffs and outcrops, much of it part of the National Natural Park of Languedoc.

This is historic Cathar country, the landscape dotted with castles and their ruins, with Carcassonne a stupendous medieval city to explore. There are also signs of Roman times with straight roads, villas and settlements to visit. Each village often built as a fortress, bears the marks of times past with tiny streets, old houses and churches, ideal for a quiet wander.

The landscape alters dramatically as the seasons pass - from spring when the first bright green shoots appear in the vineyards, to the thick canopy of leaves and grapes which by autumn are harvested - the vine leaves turn yellow, orange and red, then comes pruning and preparing for winter.

They say there are 17 different winds in this area. Which means although it 's mostly hot and sunny, there can also be, sometimes, a little breeze to cool you - from the Mediterranean, the mountains or inland from Toulouse.

La Liviniere

From the stupendous Gouffre de Cabrespine, a cavern big enough to hold the Eiffel Tower, to the Canal du Midi which winds its cool green glades along the Aude valley, there is a fantastic selection of things to do and visit in this area.

Those who love exploring towns and shopping will enjoy the ancient Roman city of Narbonne famed for its daily market and historic Carcassonne dominated by its magnificent castle. Or you could simply enjoy the peaceful countryside which attracts walkers and cyclists. Canoeing and horse-riding are also popular.

Since this is a major wine-growing region, there are numerous vineyards to visit and savour - La Liviniere takes its name from 'la cella vinaria' - they have been growing grapes here since Roman times. And of course there is a great selection of restaurants too.

La Liviniere has a boulangerie, pharmacie, small supermarket, a popular bar and restaurant. Down the road is Olonzac famed for its weekly market, one of the largest in the area, and every village has its programme of special events whether it's a celebration of cherries, apples, pork, mimosa and of course wines. Fetes and festivals are an integral part of the year's calendar with lots of eating, dancing and music which the French do so well.

And while this is a rural area, towns with supermarkets and a wide range of shops, are all within a short drive away.

“What a find!”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2012

The location was stunning and we were blown away by the accommodation. Not only was it first class provding outdoor living area with its own swimming pool but the welcome and attention to detail by the owner was second to none! We plan to return next year.

“A warm and very welcoming host. Memorable holiday!”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2011

We visited La Colline aux Pins during September 2010. Niki is a very warm and friendly host who really goes the extra mile to ensure you will have a great holiday. The villa is well located in a quiet and peaceful part of the village and offers exceptional views from an elevated position over the local area. The pool area with outside eating facilities was the highlight of the holiday. It was lovely to sit outside at night having a BBQ whilst dipping your feet in the pool. We are already planning to return next year. La liviniere is a beautiful village in a stunning part of France and is well recommended!
