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.

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.

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.

Many Montreal villas also have their own open fireplace, offering a cosy place for guests to retire to even on the coldest days.

A wonderful location overlooking the bustling Place Carnot, and only a short walk from the beautiful medieval town, the canal and the river. Well equipped, and just so comfortable. We spent many evenings (even in October!) sitting by the open windows drinking in the atmosphere, and of course, some of the local wine! Friendly and helpful owners who could not do enough to help, as well as an efficient and welcoming local contact. Everything you could need, from banks to restaurants are just a stone's throw away. I'm actually reluctant to post this review, as I wish I could keep this apartment for myself!

Beautiful place to stay, very nicely decorated, clean and comfortable with amazing views from the windows. Jenny and her husband were lovely hosts and very helpful in providing information about where to eat and places to visit and even let us use their bikes for a ride by the side of the canal du midi Absolutely loved having the use of the pool as the weather was very hot. So many places to visit nearby. Particularly enjoyed visiting 'la cite', Carcassone, Gruissan, Castlenaudary and the villages of Caunes Minervois. Would highly recommend this property.
