Make a holiday rental home or townhouse in Quillan, France your home away from home

The commune of Quillan is situated in a picturesque location at the top of the Haute Valley of the Aude, on the foothills of the Pyrenees, in south-west France. Tourism has increased in the town over the last few years, and it’s not hard to see why. The charming town has good amenities, an easily accessible location and an array of authentic and lovingly restored holiday accommodation, such as traditional townhouses and charming cottages.

Things to do in Quillan, France

If your idea of a prefect holiday is one that is activity-based, then Quillan could be the ideal spot for you. Both the Aude River and the Alet-les-Bains are good places for canoeing, white water rafting and kayaking, and horse riding, hiking, climbing and mountain biking are just some of the many activities that can be enjoyed in the surrounding Aude Valley. Your exertion will be well rewarded as you take in the stunning views as you go.

If you prefer something a little less active you can watch the sport instead of playing – rugby is extremely popular in the town, or try a spot of fishing at Mont-Bel. Quillan also boasts some excellent restaurants for a town of its size, or you can brush up on your French and enjoy a drink with the locals at one of cafe bars around the main square.

The town’s biggest annual festival is the Folklore Festival, which is held every August. Dancers from all over Europe head to Quillan for a week of music, singing and dancing, mainly around the town square. This is a great week in which to visit the town, but book your holiday rental accommodation early, otherwise you may be disappointed.

Lovely family holiday

5 of 5
This property had everything we needed for a great family holiday. It was very well equipped and there was many thoughtful touches that we greatly appreciated. There is a lovely sense of space for the whole family, I particularly loved the master bedroom with its tall ceilings and also the reading chair in the hall. The views of the surrounding hills are quite breathtaking. If we can, we'd love to come again. Thank you for a magical two weeks, and a much-needed break!

Simply stunning in a beautiful location

5 of 5
Was really impressed firstly with the location and the breathtaking scenery. The Villa was beautiful, spacious, very clean and well maintained. We found it ideal for couples or for families wishing to take a well earned, relaxing holiday. The pool was lovely and it was nice not to be disturbed whilst either sunbathing or swimming within the amazing grounds. It was very quiet but only a short 5 minutes walk away from some lovely restaurants and bars and we found the French to be extremely friendly and some of them couldn't do enough for us. The Manager provided us with a huge amount of information regarding the Villa and also advised on different locations and places to visit during our stay. i would definitely recommend this to couple or families alike, we really enjoyed it and would love to return
