The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The region falls into three distinct areas with different characteristics:

The Pyreneean region to the south, stretching along the border with Spain and into the eastern Pyrenees.

The central part of the Languedoc (Aude and Herault departments) around the medieval architecture of Carcassonne and the cathar castles and traversed by the Canal du Midi. Several well known wines are also produced in this region.

The northern part of the region (departments of Gard and Lozère), including a large part of the wild National Parc des Cevennes.

There is coastline with the Mediterranean, with long wide sandy beaches, and featuring several popular coastal towns and beach resorts.


St Ferriol is a small peaceful village with its own chateau and is 5km from Quillan, the nearest town. Quillan has the usual facilities one would expect, supermarkets, restaurants, markets, cafes, etc.

Within 15 minutes drive of the house there are a multitude of activities including whitewater rafting, canoeing, bathing in the thermal springs at Rennes les Bains, horseriding, visiting the famous vineyards of Corbiere, Minervois and Limoux where monks invented the recipe for Champagne. There are also several Chateaux within a short driving distance: Peyrepertuse, Puivert, Carcassonne, Lastours, Coustaussa, Puilaurens, Montségur, Queribus, Termes, Aguilar, Saissac and Arques.

Other fun opportunities include Mirepoix with its fabulous medieval market square, Esperaza's dinosaur museum and many festivals, produce markets, caves and gorges.

Alternatively, you can just sit back, enjoy the peaceful surrounding and relax with your own facilities and pool.

In general the climate in the Aude is Mediterranean, hot dry summers, mild winters, moderate spring and autumn.

In Winter months, enjoy skiing - the nearest station is just 30 mins drive.

"Fantastic region of France to explore, great house and one of the best views ever!"

The house, its location and the area lived up to our high expectations. We had a very pleasant week's stay, and especially enjoyed the pool and barbeque area. There is plenty of space both inside and out, and the amenities are to a high standard and comfortable, whilst retaining a certain rustic charm. There were six of us in our party, but up to eight people, especially if some are children, would be equally comfortable. A decent car is a definite must for guests at Al Vignon, as this is a hilly location with winding roads, which are steep, stony and narrow in places. It is worth it though because the surrounding countryside is very pretty and the views of the Eastern Pyrenees from the back of the house are very special. Sitting out looking at the view at all hours of the day/evening is very peaceful and relaxing. However, this is not the holiday location for anyone seeking nightlife or lots of nearby bars and restaurants, or even shops. It feels quite remote, but then again, that is its main appeal. The owners recommended we book ahead for the restaurant "Petanque, Poulet et Bicyclette" (Chicken on a Bike), which is close-by, completely outdoors, situated in the woods, with its own lake complete with waterfalls and fish! Well worth a visit for excellent food, wine and very friendly service in a unique setting. We spent fun days out driving through the superb scenery to Carcassonne and up over the mountain pass to the coast. Gorge de Galamus is well worth the drive. Quillan is also a pretty little town and the local-ish super/hypermarkets are plentiful and very well stocked.

"Absolutely Amazing!"

We stayed at this holiday villa for 9 days and it was easily the best holiday we have had in a really long time! The house is very big and as we were only two it was amazing to have so much space! It has all the mod cons you might need. The kitchen is fully equipped and it was easy to cook here which is what we did for most of our stay. The pool is also spectacular and was clean and fresh. The house is very convenveniently located to get to bigger villages/towns. Quillan is just a 5minute drive away down the hill (closest grocer) and also has a fair few lovely restaurants to sample. (Le Palace next to the river comes highly recommended). We drove to most of the Chateu in the region (Le Renne, Montsegur, Puilaurens, Quiribus, Peyerpetuse) which was a very good intense experience! We also visited a vineyard where we tasted some delicious wines and then also stayed for a Michelin starred lunch at Domain Gayda near Bruggaroilles. Lastly we even went on a day trip to Barcelona which I would also strongly recommend. We ate paella and swam in the Med! The best thing about the trips out however, is coming back to the villa and as you drive up into the drive way the view will take your breath away... every time!

"Wonderful house, lovely pool, spectacular views,equal fantastic holiday"

Description and photos are unable to do this property justice.Lovely large pool, plenty of garden space,and great size property and layout. T v and play station to amuse kids when not in pool. Spectacular views across to Quillan and Pyrenees. Could be a little remote for some but we absolutely loved it. Will certainly return.
