The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The Languedoc-Roussillion region offers a real french France experience. It is a relaxing and spectacular area of the sun-drenched south, there are wonderful quaint villages often hosting local fetes and surrounded by vineyards offering wine tasting opportunities, all this whilst being close to excellent long sandy beaches of the Mediterranean..

The area is rich in French culture, also known as the Le Midi, there are beautiful walks and cycle rides to enjoy among this peaceful area of the country. It offers a great sweep of plains and vine-clad hills dotted with remote Cathar castles converging on one of the greatest sights of all France; La Cite of Carcassonne.


The proberty is located in the small village of Taurize, 10 minutes from Lagrasse and 30 minutes south of Carcassonne. The bread van calls every morning to the village and there is a wonderful grocery store in neighboring village, Servies (2 minutes).

Lagrasse is a lovely town with magnificent Abbey and excellent restaurants - as well as the opportunity to admire and purchase local paintings and potteries.

Carcassone is a breath-taking fortified city with many year round activities and cultural events for the family to enjoy, along with the multitude of resaurants and a beautiful golf course - for those interested.

Mediterranean beaches within 50 minutes of the house (Peyriac de Mer) which stretch from Montpellier down to the Spanish border. Wonderful sandy beaches with tasteful entertainments and beachfront restaurants and cafes. The 'Etang de L'Ayrolle' offers some of the best windsurfing in Europe.

Wine tasting opportunities are everywhere with numerous private caves and roadside vendors. Beautiful vineyards (Corbieres, Minervois and Fitou) and impressive valleys and rivers. It is worth a special visit to Limoux - for its famous sparkling wine.

Don't miss the Canal du Midi for walking and cycling. Lake swimming and rafting just north of Carcassonne. Fantastic and spectacular scenery along the Cote Vermaille and the loverly beach resort and harbour at Collioure and Banyuls.

There are historical Cathar trails and castles throughout the region, a large wildlife park at Sigean, 'AquaLand' water park in the chic resort of Cap d'Agde and don't forget Andorra for duty-free shopping.
