I get a bit annoyed at modern holiday homes, but this is a proper old French house in an interesting village. The house is nicely atmospheric and has a very well-equipped kitchen. Well equipped everything I guess! Particularly like the top floor lounge, a good...More

It is 20 degrees in the shade and the sun is bright against the back of the house. Whether I am sitting in the courtyard with a small glass of vino or sunbathing on the upstairs sofa I love this place. Even though I have...More

About the neighbourhood
You can visit the local hill-top Cathar castle, Chateau d'Aguilar, and even more interesting to visit are Queribus (just past Cucugnan) and Peyrepertuse. The fortified town of Carcassonne is close enough for a day out; visit Lagrasse on the way out/back (medieval town centre and Abbey). Fontfroide Abbey and the cities of Narbonne and Perpignan are worth a visit.

The local gorges on the way to Cucugnan and especially the Gorges de Galamus (park and visit the Hermitage) north of St Paul de Fenouillet are spectacular. South towards Estagel are good views of the Pyrenees, especially in the winter. The highest peak is Pic de Canigou (the peak which can be seen from the top floor of the house on a clear day). You can drive to the Pyrenees in 2 hours to visit the fortified town of Villefranc...
