Enjoy the Pyrénées mountain-views and the golden sands of the award winning Languedoc beaches and explore the fascinating history of the Cathar. Corbiere really does have it all from climbing to hilltop castles to relaxing in the vineyards with a bottle of your favourite wine..
Whether its springtime cycling, autumn mountain climbing, winter skiing or beach time sun…The region of the Languedoc has something for everyone.
‘Villa Rouge’ has been a popular base for tourist destination for the last 50 years due to its perfect position, covering over 6000m2 of landscaped gardens, orchard and vineyard in the centre of the Corbière ‘wine route’.
Nearest villages: Fabrézan, St Laurent de la Cabrerisse, Ferrals – all 5 minutes.
Beaches: 20-30 minutes.
The national bicycle routes criss-cross through Corbière providing a rich choice of countryside from the the 100 Sq Km of pine forests with graded mountain bike tracks through to the gentle promenade of the Canal du Midi and coastal paths.
‘Villa Rouge’ caters for visitors all year around from skiing groups heading up for a couple of days in the Pyrenees (1hr30m to ski resorts) through to Spring and Autumn hikers heading for the beautiful lavender laden hills and of course the summer sun worshipers who are spoilt for choice between pool, sea, river or lake. Most of the Languedoc region is protected as a national park so beaches and forests remain pristine and with over 70 km of beach you can be assured of a place to call your own from the lively beaches of Narbonne to the tranquil lost oasis of ‘Franqui Plage’ (20 mins) which is also one of the leading Wind and Kite surf destinations in the Mediterranean.
The region is steeped in history as it was the centre of the 11th Century ‘Cathar’ religion which due to its disagreements with Rome resulted in the building of numerous fine castles and fortifications, the most famous being Carcassonne Castle (20 mins).
With the Spanish border being only 30 mins away you can easily go on a gastronomic tour covering the fine southern French cuisine with its goats cheeses, cassoulet, duck specialities and fine wine but also dip into the Catalan culture of Tapas, seafood and margaritas. Barcelona is only 1hr30m away by car or an hour by train from Narbonne station.
– The tranquility of the countryside and relaxing space does mean a car is required. Free parking for up to 10 cars is available. The nearest airport is Carcassonne which is 20 mins away by car. Rentals cars can be picked up at the airport from as little as £15/day.
– You can cycle to the local village of St Laurent de Cabrerisse in about 20 minutes where there is a mini supermarket, a cafe bar, a bakery, a newsagents, a hairdresser and a food van.
