Durban Corbieres is on the outskirts of a delightful village with good facilities in the Corbieres region of Languedoc, France which benefits from over 2500 hours of sunshine per year.
The landscape consists of rolling limestone hills covered in Olive groves and vines interspersed by delightful villages and imposing Cathar castles.
Local produce, including olive oil and wines, can easily be tasted and bought from the producer or in colourful local markets. Or they can be sampled in a variety of restaurants from simple village bistros to Michelin 3 star. Accommodation is plentiful, especially in terms of self catering.
For many, the blue skies, sunshine, stunning views and local life will be enough. For the more active there are an infinite number of waymarked walks from easy half hour strolls to challenging mountain routes whilst the quiet roads are a cyclists paradise.
There are clean quiet beaches within a short drive and for rock climbers a huge variety of bolted sport climbs. For city lovers Narbonne and Perpignanare an easy drive, Barcelona is also possible in a longer day trip.
