If you're looking for a safe haven from which to explore the mysteries of the Cathar castles, discover delightful walks in the Malepère Massif or simply unwind in a peaceful space for yourselves, a Razès Gîte may be right for you.
Located in a quiet, rural village, guests have the opportunity to slow down the pace of time and re-discover a sense of inner peace and calm while gently re-connecting with the sights and sounds of nature all around.
There are two apartments at Razès – Soujeole and Corbières - both suitable for short stays or long lets. Each apartment is ideally suited for a couple and has its own private entrance, parking, fully equipped kitchen, dining and lounge areas, double bedroom and bath/shower room, wifi access. They may be rented together or individually.
Guests of Soujeole and Corbières gîtes have a choice of 3 shared yet secluded gardens and the Grange at their disposal for outdoor dining and relaxation. The Grange houses: the outdoor kitchen, washing machine, BBQ, table tennis & darts.
Ideally located in the rolling Razès countryside: Razès Gîtes are idyllic for couples who love walking in peaceful countryside with stunning views. We have plenty of maps and Jo gives guided walks and tours of the Cathar castles for those who choose to pursue this option.
Guests have the opportunity to slow down time, re-connect with the sights and sounds of nature all around safely tucked away in the heart of a rural village. The area is renowned for its wild orchids and birds of prey which are to be found no more than a stone's throw away. Depending on the time of year, the neighbouring hillsides of vines, poppies or sunflowers are simply spectacular lending incredible views of the countryside and Cathar castles.
With their unique ambiance & rustic character, Razès Gîtes are suitable for short & long lets. Open all year round, they also provide those who need a 'get-away-from-it-all' break in winter a bolthole from within which to re-energise during the long, cold months.
For the bird lover, it's a perfect place from which to admire the sights and sounds of many local species of buzzards, kites, eagles and kestrels among many others.
The owners are based in the adjoining property and are on hand, happy to help with advice, reservations & suggestions if and where required. However, if you've already made your own plans or prefer to have none at all, peace and privacy are all yours.
Whatever your preferred pastime, Razès Gîtes provide an ideal base from which to explore the Aude & Ariège countryside, the quaint circular villages and Cathar towns, or your own inner peace.
Local shops, wine and restaurants: The village of Escueillens is situated mid-way between Limoux & Mirepoix. There are no shops in the village so a series of mobile butchers, bakers and grocers make their daily rounds to the village square. The nearest shops, cafés and bank can be found just 7 km away in Belvèze which is also home to the local wine château.
The region is famous for its Blanquette de Limoux and also boasts more than 350 wines which you can't find in your supermarket back home. For those who like to indulge, we can arrange wine-tasting tours of the local caves and châteaux.
There are many delightful restaurants in the neighbouring towns of Mirepoix, Limoux & Carcassonne offering gastronomic experiences galore. We are happy to make recommendations & reservations.
