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

Found in the beautiful rural region of Aude in Languedoc-Roussillon near Limoux, Belcaire is nestled high among the Pyrenean hills of Southern France. Surrounded by spa towns, and offering one of the best places for walking holidays in summer and skiing holidays in the winter in the French Pyrenees, Belcaire gites offer a magnificent sporting retreat at any time of year.

Things to do in Belcaire, France

Belcaire lies in the heart of the dramatic Cathar countryside, surrounded by mountain peaks, dramatic gorges, deep forests, fast flowing rivers and vineyard strewn hills. Outdoor activities always play a large part in any Belcaire holiday, but for those that would prefer to take a spacious Belcaire villa and relax, the extensive vineyards and surrounding spa villages of Ax les Baines, Ussat les Baines and Montsegur will certainly provide all the relaxation you could possibly wish for.

However, those interested in the serious occupations of walking, riding and mountain biking are spoilt for choice. The hills are crossed with an astonishing range of trails and paths for your exploration, and the scenery is quite astonishing. The Pilgrim Trails are especially interesting, and lead to some of the region's most beautiful monasteries, chateaux and castles.

Skiing is fantastic during the winter. There are a huge range of ski resorts within close range of a Belcaire gite, including Camurac, Romeu, Les Angles, Pyrenees 2000 and the ski resorts of Andorra.

Everything about the villa, the garden and the village was perfect. The villa is spotless, beautifully appointed, very comfortably furnished and equipped with absolutely everything we could possibly have needed. The garden was gorgeous, with amazing, far-reaching views across the village and surrounding vineyards -stunning sunrises. We loved having the pool at our disposal, which was very welcome on the particularly warm days. We stayed at the villa with two of our adult sons and their partners and found that we had the option of spending time together, but could also find a quiet nook to sit and read/ listen to music undisturbed; the villa (and garden)lends itself to this very well. The village itself is very beautiful, we loved hearing the church bells chime on the hour - and again a minute later - the snooze button! There is a tiny bar under the church which opens on Thursday and Friday evenings - very interesting mix of local folk and ex-pats. We had great vegetarian food and live music there on Friday - great for our group - we were made very welcome. The location of the villa is perfect for many days and nights out. We particularly enjoyed Foix - chateau and town - and the drive beyond into the mountains. We caught the start of one leg of the Tour de France leaving Toulouse on Saturday afternoon, very exciting carnival atmosphere. Owner Clare was very accommodating, great, prompt communication, lots of helpful information regarding local activities. The house manager, Barry, visited us a couple of times to ensure that we were happy with everything, and we spotted him early in the mornings maintaining the pool. We also met Barry's wife at the bar in Friday, which was very nice. We would love to stay at the villa again, would definitely recommend, next time, we will factor in a train trip to Narbonne and Barcelona. Thank you for helping us to create happy holiday memories.

Village is located in the center of interesting location. But it is necessary to take in acount, that it is really mountain village, which means connected with surounding world by very narrow and zigzagging roads. Any journey takes much more time than usual. But it's a holiday.I think today is not easy to find such a forgotten place.
