Local area

The house is situated in Quarante, a delightful, picturesque Languedoc village whose winter population is 1460. In summer this grows considerably as sons and daughters and their families return for holidays and to visit their parents and grandparents.

It is about 18km north of Narbonne and about 20km west of Beziers.

The centre of the village is the square by the large old church which dominates the steep narrow streets.

You can get an excellent (midday) meal in the bar.

A post office and shops (butcher, baker, little supermarket etc) are up past the narrow streets near the square.

For bigger food shopping you could try ‘Intermarche’ supermarket 8km away in Capestang.

Narbonne, Beziers and Perpignan (about 5 degrees warmer than its surroundings) are lovely nearby interesting towns to visit.he surrounding countryside is superb. There are many, many vines and it is a beautiful ride of about 30km to the spectacular Languedoc National Park.

The Mediterranean beaches are about 20 minutes away.

The famous walled citadel of Carcassonne is about 50km away and is a great day out.

Canal du Midi

You must visit the magnificent Canal du Midi which is 4km away. There are many picnic spots in shaded areas beneath the parasol pines.

The nearest swimming is not far away in Bize-Minervois where the locals swim in the fresh crystal clear water and relax in the shade of the plane trees. It is a good idea to go between 12.00 noon and 2.00 pm when everyone is eating but then this is true of anywhere in France.

You must visit the Oppidum, a Gallo Roman settlement high on a hill overlooking the Canal du Midi.

Further afield are the wonderful citadels of Minerve and Lagrasse.

You are not far from the Corbieres, Cathar castles and the spectacular “Little Yellow Train” - a ride up the valley towards Andorra.
