From Saint-Pierre-la-Mer to the Narbonnaise Nature Park via the Etang de Sigean: a great holiday in the Aude region
From the Montagne Noire to the foothills of the Pyrenees, from the medieval city of Carcassonne to the Etang de Sigean via the Canal du Midi, the Aude department extends to the Mediterranean coast in an endless variety of landscapes, history and culture. Come and see it!
A whole lot of nature and culture with a south of France flavour
Aude is famous for Carcassonne, a medieval city that is listed as part of World Heritage by UNESCO. Thousands of visitors come to see its ramparts each year. And let's not forget Narbonne, the biggest Roman city in France and famous for heritage dating from Antiquity. But there are plenty of other hidden treasures to explore. From our holiday residence Le Neptune, you will have easy access to Gruissan, one of the most beautiful towns on the Golfe du Lion. You can also stroll along the little streets and visit the castle in the medieval town of Villerouge-Termenès, walk in the vineyards and hills of Lagrasse or enjoy a visit to Montolieu, the village of books and art. In the Corbières mountains, Fontfroide Abbey welcomes visitors to a listed site, with a thousand years of rich history. Your holiday in the Aude region is also a chance to explore the mysterious Cathar country. From the Mediterranean to the Ariège Pyrenees, at the heart of the sun-filled Corbières, the Cathar trail leads to the "citadelles du vertige" ("vertiginous citadels") and the most beautiful Cathar castles in Peyrepertuse, Termes, Quéribus, Aguilar and Puilauren. Aude is a destination that lovers of old stone will never forget!
