Villa La Cascade is our gorgeous cut stone luxury Languedoc villa with a private pool overlooking the pretty village of Durban Corbieres and its medieval castle. Sleeping up to six in three beautiful en-suite double bedrooms this is the perfect Languedoc villa rental. Set in an award winning development of a small number of beautiful villas and convenient to airports at Perpignan, Carcassonne, Toulouse and Gerona, it’s the ideal spot for a great holiday. With gorgeous gardens, and beautifully appointed to the highest standards, the villa is fully equipped with every modern convenience. Our home from home in France is just a few minutes’ walk to the pretty village of Durban- Corbieres and only 20 minutes from the motorway network and a short drive to lovely beaches.

Our private pool and garden at Villa La Cascade provides stunning views. The villa has an outdoor barbeque - perfect for lazy wining and dining in the gorgeous surroundings. At the far side of the terrace is a table and chairs with a view of the valley and vineyards below, with the hills of the Corbieres in the distance. There’s comfortable garden furniture and sun loungers, an outdoor shower for after a refreshing dip in the pool and a number of secluded seating areas.

Our three comfortable double bedrooms are all en-suite and come with 100% cotton bed linen. We have two bedrooms on the ground floor; one with an en-suite with a bath with shower. This room has fabulous views over the pool and terrace of the Corbieres. Our second bedroom on the ground floor also has a lovely WC and wet room with large shower area, overlooking the front garden. Upstairs, our third en-suite bedroom has stunning views to Durban Corbieres to the front (with a view of the castle and the village) and at the back to the beautiful Languedoc landscape. This room has a walk-in shower, sink, vanity area and WC.

Our kitchen has all you need - whether you’re cooking an evening meal or preparing a simple lunch to enjoy outside with some Languedoc wine - it’s all here! A Rosieres oven and hob is complemented by a wide range of kitchen equipment. Our outdoor dining area comfortably seats six adults in a shaded area with a lovely contemporary dining table with a good range of glassware and every item needed for dining. Our beautiful sitting room (complete with iPod docking station, internet access, satelliteTV, DVD home cinema system and a range of books and films) opens out onto a magnificent teak deck surrounding our private swimming pool. Our larger terrace then adjoins the deck to take in the wonderful views in complete privacy.

This is Cathar country – one of the most inspiring and dramatic landscapes in Europe. Located in the heart of the picturesque Corbieres hills, Villa La Cascade is just perfect for either an activity packed Languedoc holiday or a relaxing getaway. Within a short distance we have a range of fabulous vineyards with great tasting opportunities and on-site restaurants, the ancient monasteries at Lagrasse and Fontfroide, medieval Cathar castles at Queribus and Peyrepertuse, the walled city of
Carcassonne and the beautiful Canal du Midi meandering through the countryside north of the hills. The thriving Languedoc towns of Narbonne and Beziers are a short drive away with a wide range of shops and services, whilst the city Perpignan offers a vibrant mix of influences. From our villa to Cataluyna is just one hour and provides a whole additional range of wonderful things to see and do. Swimming and wind-surfing are available in the Mediterranean at Cap Leucate, just 30 minutes from
the villa. The snowy peaks of the Pyrenees rise to the south and winter sports are available only a 2 hour drive away. Golf, tennis, horse-riding and sailing are within easy reach and the hills of Languedoc are criss-crossed by walks for every level, all with magnificent views to the foothills of the Pyrenees.

The villa may be suitable for wheelchair users as it has 2 en-suite bedrooms on the ground floor. Below is a guide given in good faith. Please carefully note the following in order to help you decide on its suitability:
1. There are no steps from the parking area to the villa nor to enter the front door. Nor are there any steps inside the villa on the ground floor. We have a mat in front of the door, but this can be moved easily.
2. All internal doorways are 70 cm in width. All rooms at the back of our house open immediately out onto our deck and pool area. Both of these rooms – (the pool bedroom and the living room) have large sliding double doors. We have garden furniture that can easily be moved from the terrace for you. In addition, there are no steps from either of these rooms onto the deck.
3. The pool bedroom has a bath with fixed and handheld shower fittings. The other (front) bedroom has a wet-room, with a slight step up to the shower of approx.12 cm.
4. The area in front of our house is flat and we have a lovely, public seated area with views toward the village and all on the same level.
1. Normal access to the ground floor bedrooms via the hallway is not wide enough for a wheelchair. However, you can easily access the pool room bedroom via our terrace by leaving via the living room and accessing the pool room through its sliding doors onto the terrace. This may suit you if you wish to use the pool room with the bath and overhead and hand held shower. We also have an outdoor shower by our swimming pool.
2. There is one step from the deck to the terrace and a step back up again to the outdoor dining area. The non-terrace area of the garden features of a number of gravel paths and these are not suitable for wheelchair use. There is a guest WC in the hallway – this is also not suitable for wheelchair use.

“The location is excellent – a short walk to the village, easy to get to from the motorways and airports and there’s loads to do in the area. More than anything though, the views from the house are just gorgeous. We really think we chose well and we spent a lovely fortnight admiring probably the best view from a holiday villa we’ve ever experienced.”

“Villa de Cascade is a hidden gem in the heart of the Languedoc and we cannot recommend a stay here highly enough. Our host, Valerie was very helpful in the run up to our trip and answered any questions we had quickly and had some great suggestions for vineyards to visit and where to eat. The scenery on the drive up to the house is stunning with a ruined church on the skyline across the cascade. The house is perched on top of a hill with very private gardens with magnificent uninterrupted views of the surrounding mountains.”

Beautiful Villa

By Sally Anne Cooney on 28-Sep-2019

Villa de Cascade is a hidden gem in the heart of the Languedoc and we cannot recommend a stay here highly enough. Our host, Valerie was very helpful in the run up to our trip and answered any questions we had quickly and had some great suggestions for vineyards to visit and where to eat. The scenery on the drive up to the house is stunning with a ruined church on the skyline across the cascade. The house is perched on top of a hill with very private gardens with magnificent uninterrupted views of the surrounding mountains. The house benefits from being part of a small group of traditional houses in a private Domaine, yet with easy access to the village via a leisurely 5 minute walk by foot down the hill to the bakery, shops and pharmacy. The Villa is very stylish with traditional French decor throughout. The fit out is of a very high standard and the house was spotless with gorgeous linen and the fluffiest towels. The bedrooms are generous doubles with very comfy beds and all with their own en-suite and beautifully decorated. The terrace has a covered veranda perfect for reading in the shade and we had every meal outside here. The swimming pool is perfect for a cooling afternoon dip and a splash around. We arrived to find a bottle of local wine from Castelmaure from the Corbieres and a lovely welcome note. Every little thing has been considered from Smart TV to a docking station for our music and as someone who loved to cook we had everything we needed, even some great cookbooks left out for us. Valerie gave us some great suggestions for visiting in the area and we had a stunning lunch in the restaurant in the Abbaye de FontFroide and then a stroll through the Abbaye and gardens followed by a wine tasting. We visited Embres et Castelmaure winery, did a honey tasting over the hill and visited Narbonne, a beautiful town with great boutique shops, roman road ruins, cathedral and classic French cafes and restaurants. The African reserve in Sigean is a great day out too. For foodies, the 3 star Michelin restaurant just over the hill is out of this world. The scenery in the area is magnificent with great views and vineyards curling up the hill behind the house and we loved exploring the area by foot and car. We visited in mid-September and temperatures were mid to high 20s and the harvest was in full swing. This was our first time in the Languedoc and it certainly won’t be the last. We will definitely be back to Villa de Cascade, our hidden gem in the Languedoc.

Where Can I Begin?!

By Ian Whitehead on 14-Sep-2017

Where can I begin... From the ease of booking with the owner to her real understanding with all our requirements this is a lovely person to deal with. The house was immaculate and very well situated and laid out. We liked the open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area which opened out onto the pool and patio. The beds were very comfortable as were the pillows. Something so rare in France and Italy these days we tend to take our own. Not needed here. The garden was a joy, and so enjoyed sitting in the little "private area" with the view across the valley. The house was certainly very much home from home. The local super market stocked everything we needed and I enjoyed walking down to the bakers every morning for our bread and croissant. A brilliant holiday and looking forward to re-visiting.

What a Lovely Week!

By David T on 16-Jul-2017

What a lovely week we had. Reminded us of being in Provence, but without the crowds and inflated prices, and nearer the sea! AMAZING views from the villa terrace - absolutely loved it. Despite being in a small ''courtyard'' of other villas, was very private and quiet. Fantastic wine and vineyards, lovely cycle rides, plenty of restaurants of all price brackets, near the midi canal and Carcassonne, beautiful walks and castles to visit, great coastline and lagoons.The villa itself was very well equipped and tastefully furnished, and for the keen chef, had all the implements and dishes you could ever need! Three en-suite double bedrooms all tastefully furnished and stacks of wardrobe space. Utility room with extra fridge freezer and washing machine. Lovely covered outside dining area and BBQ. Beautifully kept garden, with loads of lavender.Good WiFi /TV/sky for when you''ve had enough of the sun (and very useful if staying during Wimbledon week!!) Highly recommended!
