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.

Even at this time of year we were able to relax on the outside terrace enjoying the sunshine and lovely view. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and we would heartily recommend this gite for a visit, and we hope to return.

Although we'd seen the pictures on the website, they didn't prepare us for the WOW factor we felt on arrival. It is beautifully proportioned home which is extremely well equipped and only a short walk into Quillan - definitely no more than 10 minutes dawdle where there are numerous restaurants and cafés to choose from and the town has a lovely atmosphere. The gardens are very extensive and it's beautiful to hear the river flowing. Just 100 m up the road was an ideal place for Coco our chocolate labrador to swim to her heart's content. We cannot recommend this property highly enough and would like to thank Julie for being so helpful in every aspect with queries or recommendations. Thanks Julie!

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.
