This is Cathar country – one of the most inspiring and dramatic landscapes in Europe. Located in the heart of the picturesque Corbieres hills, Villa La Cascade is just perfect for either an activity packed Languedoc holiday or a relaxing getaway.
Within a short distance of our Languedoc holiday villa there are the ancient monasteries at Lagrasse and Fontfroide (pictured above), medieval Cathar castles at Queribus and Peyrepertuse, the walled city of Carcassonne and the beautiful Canal du Midi meandering through the countryside north of the hills. The thriving Languedoc towns of Narbonne and Beziers are a short drive from the villa with a wide range of shops and services, whilst the city Perpignan offers a vibrant mix of influences that often appear more Catalan than French in many respects.
Swimming and wind-surfing are available in the Mediterranean at Cap Leucate, just 30 minutes from the villa. The snowy peaks of the Pyrenees rise to the south and winter sports are available only a 2-hour drive away in resorts such as Les Angles and Font Romeu. Golf, tennis, horse-riding and sailing are within easy reach and the hills of Languedoc are criss-crossed by walks for every level, all with magnificent views to the foothills of the Pyrenees.
