Make a holiday rental, home, or villa in Aude, France, your home away from home

Aude, France, is named after the River Aude. The local council calls Aude, “Cathar Country”. In 1790, the department of Aude was formed from the eastern part of the old province of Languedoc. Carcassonne is Aude’s capital, a picturesque town with its restored medieval fortifications and buildings, and a perfect place to rent an Aude villa. Other than the Mediterranean beaches and resorts, Aude is relatively undiscovered.

excellent townhouse in the heart of the old city

5 of 5
The townhouse is ideally located five minutes from the railway station in the old city. Bars, restaurants and shops all within a couple,of minutes walk. The house has been tastefully renovated with agenerous size bedroom and lovely bathroom. On the top floor is the kitchen/lounge with a very nice roof terrace. For two people this is an ideal short break. Carcassonne has a lot to offer. The castle is world class, the Saturday market is wonderful,and the canal,midi a delight. Train trips to nearby locations are very straightforward. I would highly recommend this accommodation and the area. We,went for a week and will be returning.

A beautiful home in an idyllic setting

5 of 5
Having spent a week in this beautifuly restored 400 year old home I can highly recommend a stay here! The owners have done themselves proud with the standard of the home. All the mod cons and finished to a high standard (and I'm a builder!) but without loosing the classic French style. My partner was amazed at the roll top bath in one of the bedrooms, and the oak beams and star case look even better in the flesh. The local people are so welcoming and the 5 minute walk down the road to the bakery to buy fresh croissants was something to look for ward to each morning! The local bar (enri's) is classically French and filled with cameras! The prices are unbelievablly cheap too! I could go on but all in all one of the best holidays away we have had in along time! A must for anyone wanting to see the south of France as it should be seen!
