Make a holiday rental home or cottage in Paraza, France your home away from home

The quaint village of Paraza sits on a hill and overlooks the Aude Valley. Those seeking the perfect destination for a wine tasting holiday in rural France can do little better than Paraza, which lies in the heart of wine country, offering a peaceful setting and majestic views of the many vineyards in the area. Amenities in the village are basic, but the simplicity of life in Paraza is what draws many repeat visitors to the holiday rental houses and cottages dotted across its green landscape.

Things to do in Paraza, France

The most recognisable site in Paraza is the Chateau de Paraza, once the home of Pierre Paul Riquet – the engineer credited for the creation of the Canal du Midi. The Chateau has a number of vineyards on its land, and as a result produces some excellent wines. The Canal du Midi was built in the 18th Century to link the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, and many tourist boats are waiting for those looking for a pleasure cruise along its waters.

Paraza is indeed in the heart of wine country, and a visit to a vineyard or two should be high up on the wish list of every visitor. Some of the main wines of the region are Corbieres, Languedoc and Minevois, and many of these possess the thick, full-bodied taste which local wines are revered for.

Although amenities in the village are basic, Paraza does possess a couple of excellent restaurants. Cheaper, but equally good as meals can be enjoyed at the Cafe du Port, which sits on the banks of the canal, and is a common meeting place for the surprisingly large ex-pat community that resides in the village. The Cafe du Port offers what is describes as ‘slow food’ – meals of subtle tastes and pleasant fragrances to be enjoyed at leisure, whilst taking in the scenery and enjoying a fine glass of local wine at the same time. On a clear day it is even possible to see the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean from the cafes outside seating area.

The owners were very pleasant and really helpful. We used the barbecue every night and sat at the table in the garden. We used the hot tub a lot which was great.

It was clean and very comfortable and had everything one could need. On s'est passé un bon séjour à l'appartement à Narbonne. C'était proper et très confotable. Il y a un aspirateur dans l'armoire et le tuyau de rallonge est sur le côté.

The pool and grounds were very nice, although we did not use the pool it was just nice to chill out on the sun beds. We were very impressed how family friendly the facilities were , although we had no children with us , the toys , bikes , swing ball , climbing frame and slide and even a Wendy house complete with table chairs and tea set , plenty of pool toys and even buckets and spades if you want to take the children to the nearby beach. An amazing setting with first class accommodation , Wendy and Pat on hand in case you need any help , I would recommend this holiday to anyone who wants to have a relaxing break in a beautiful part of France.
