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.

Places to visit from Belcaire, France

During the summer, the beaches of the Mediterranean are of huge appeal. The coast can be reached in under 2 hours, and as you drop down out of the mountains and the temperature increases, a few hours stretched out on the fine sand beaches of Narbonne, St Cyprien and Argeles sur Mer will complete your holiday!

Weather in Belcaire, France

Conditions in Belcaire are hugely affected by the seasons. During the summer months, temperatures are wonderfully warm, with daily peaks reaching up towards 30C, and evenings remaining perfectly warm enough to enjoy a meal outside in your shirt sleeves taking in the astonishing scenery. The winter months are obviously much colder, but skiing in the sunshine is certainly no rarity.

Flights to Belcaire, France

Belcaire is in a remote rural region, but despite this, there are actually a great range of options for reaching a Belcaire property from the UK. Toulouse, Carcassonne and Perpignan airports are all within two hours drive. A hire car is an essential item on any Belcaire holiday.

What can I say .. the villa was all I could have hoped for! The weather was amazing with wall to wall blue skies and sunshine but outside it was freezing! Not to worry, the villa was warm and cosy the whole time, thanks largely to the luxury of the underfloor heating and then of course there was the glorious woodburner, which we fired up in the evenings .. not because we needed more heat, but because it was just so great to lounge in front of it, watching the TV with a glass of the local Fitou! The villa is spotless ... the kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils and crockery you could wish for plus, of course, a dishwasher! The ground floor is open plan and ideal for families or groups of friends ... you can cook, dine and doss around together, which is ideal! There is a double suite on the ground floor, which is ideal for those who might have less mobility than they'd wish and three more double rooms (two with twin beds) upstairs, with the biggest shower room I've ever seen for them to share. The garden is just beautiful ... it's got a great deck and pool area ... even though (naturally!) it wasn't being used in January!! The rear garden goes down to the River Aude and would be perfect for anyone wanting to do a bit of fishing. It might even suit those who are wild swimmers if there's enough water in the warmer seasons, that is! I think this property is a gem and would suit anyone looking for a break in the Languedoc. It's within an hour of the coast and glorious beaches of Argeles sur Mer and Canet Plage, the amazing city of Carcassonne as well as the classic towns of Foix & Limoux. Even in the depths of winter there was so much to see and do that I can't wait to return!

Access to outstanding walking and beautiful Cathar Castles. This is a special location. The house is lovely and everything is very high quality. The sitting room / kitchen with the wonderful fireplace was the centre for our family stay. The owners are delightful and made our stay easy and interesting.

For example, there are shelves full of books, many CDs and lots of kitchen equipment. As should be expected in a region that has very hot weather, the windows are small and shuttered. At first we found it rather dark, though there are plenty of lamps. The small balcony is a valuable addition. Parking in a large car park a few steps up the road was easy. The village of Belvianes was delightful, and Quillan provided for all our needs, as well as being perfectly situated for exploring the region, which was really beautiful. There was plenty of good walking as well as Cathar castles to explore. We could easily have spent a fortnight here, and hope to return. Charlotte was very helpful and quick to reply to queries. We did not meet the key-holder.
