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

Montreal, France is a picturesque village just outside of the town of Carcassonne, not to be confused with Montreal, Canada. The combination of long, lazy summers and spectacular geography around the region make Montreal the ideal destination for any family’s summer holiday or a short, active weekend break from the city at any time of year.

Things to do in Montreal, France

The fantastic geography of the land around Montreal means that it is a dream destination for any active family or outdoors enthusiast. Some of the many exciting activities on offer include rafting, canyoning, rock climbing, canopying, caving and hiking.

Those interested in more relaxing pursuits will however also be very pleased with the array of activities on offer on a Montreal holiday, with an 18-hole golf course nearby, thermal springs and plenty of gentle walks taking in old chateaus and local vineyards.

There are various events held in the village over the summer months, and the weekly farmers markets are the ideal place for self-catering guests to stock up on great quality local produce. Gourmets may also be very interested in visiting one of the many vineyards around the area, most of which offer free tasting sessions and very reasonably priced vintages.

Although Montreal is busiest during the warm summer months, it is ideally situated for several of France’s best ski slopes, and Montreal accommodation offers a tranquil alternative to the larger skiing resorts.

Places to visit on holiday in Montreal, France

The nearby town of Carcassonne could easily be lifted directly from the pages of a fairytale story, with magnificent castles set against the spectacular backdrop of the Black Mountains. Visitors to this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site can look forward to seeing Roman churches, medieval fortifications and impressive architecture around every corner.

Montreal is also less than 80km from the city of Toulouse, with its castle, churches, gardens and museums. Toulouse also has a wide variety of shopping, where visitors can pick up their own piece of French couture, as well as countless restaurants in which to stuff themselves silly on yummy French cuisine.

Weather in Montreal, France

Summers in Montreal are very pleasant, with daytime temperatures of up to 23C and very little rain. Winters are milder than in the mountains, and temperatures rarely dip below freezing, so a villa in Montreal offers a great alternative for those not so keen on staying in the colder ski resorts. Many Montreal villas also have their own open fireplace, offering a cosy place for guests to retire to even on the coldest days.

Flights to Montreal, France

Carcassonne Airport is the most convenient gateway to Montreal, 13km from Montreal, and receives Ryanair several times weekly. Alternatively, visitors may also choose to use the Eurostar, which connects both London St. Pancras and Ebbsfleet stations to Carcassonne. Hire cars may then be picked up at either the airport or railway station to get to Montreal accommodation.

Best part for us was the outside space, the pool was great and much needed as the weather was generally around 30°C . We hired a car and enjoyed touring the area. Only downside was that taxis were hugely expensive... €20 euro each way into La Cite Medieval at Carcassonne (it was approx 4km ). Eric the owner was very pleasant and helpful .

It is in a great location to enjoy the Cite, the Bastide and the Canal de Midi. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable, we self catered quite a bit and everything we needed was there. The terrace is a lovely haven with seating area, eating area and sunbeds - as it is an apartment it is overlooked by other residents but that is to be expected - a lovely place to sit in the evening with a glass of wine or two! The apartment has a very good shower with plenty of hot water all the time. Take a couple of English DVD's if you fancy a film night, it is possible to use the tv remote to convert to English on the odd broadcast programme but it was only the odd thing. Sylvie is a great host, very helpful, and even arranged for us to drop our suitcase with her husband Luc as we arrived very early - she is full of information about the area and supplies plenty of maps and guides, recommended restaurants and wines to buy in the local supermarket - fantastic, thank you. Many thanks to Sylvie and Luc, we enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Kind regards, Pete and Julie.
