Chateau to rent for your holidays: what can you see and do ?

Around this exceptional chateau, the entire Languedoc region is yours to explore.

- Only a few kilometres away, discover Carcassonne. The city is known for its medieval city, restored by Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century and registered on the UNESCO list of world heritage since 1997. The medieval city has another chateau, the Comtal chateau, built in the 12th century and altered many times since then.
In the heart of the city, the Midi canal, classed UNESCO heritage of humanity site, can be explored on foot, by bike and by boat. Admire its tree-lined banks that are reflected in the calm waters.

- Carcassonne isn’t the only place where history comes alive. Visit the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire, a Benedictine abbey dating back to the 8th century, or the Cathar chateaux of Saissac, Termes, Peyrepertuse and immerse yourself in history. A Cathar trail that connects Port-la-Nouvelle in Aude and Foix in Ariège, feature hiking stops at some of these chateaux.

- The region offers many opprtunities to practice sport as well : there are some footpaths accessible to horse riders and a golf course just 15 minutes from the chateau. Water sports are even possible at beaches not far away at Port la Nouvelle and Collioure seaside resorts. The more adventurous among you can try wild swimming in the rivers or take advantage of water-based activities, this time on the Cavayère lake.

- For culture, don’t miss the Carcassonne festival: in July, it showcases dance, theatre, Opera and even classical music… On the 14th of the same month, for the national day, enjoy a world famous display above the medieval city that is much more than a simple fireworks display. The chateau is the best place to admire it without suffering from the crowd.

- Enjoy local food: fish, honey and olive oil, cassoulet of course, as well has numerous other local products that have inspired several Michelin starred chefs who have set up shop in the region.

- Finally, your visit wouldn’t be complete without discovering the vineyards and wine cellars that are part of the landscape. Several designations are rooted in Languedoc : Malepère, Cabardès, Limoux, Corbières… Minervois will delight you with Syrah, Grenahche, Carignan or Mourvèdre wines.
