Villa in Durban Corbieres, Aude, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Beautiful Views, Close to Village A stunning spacious villa with its own in ground pool, craftsman built as part of a very small select development. The villa is beautifully furnished and sleeps 4. Situated with open views of an ancient ruined castle and rolling vineyards yet just a short walk to the local village.
The Villa was built a few years ago, it is now maturing beautifully into it's surroundings and was loved by all who stayed there last year. The villa is fully furnished with comfortable seating for 4 adults inside or out in the living, dining and patio areas. There is satellite TV showing the main UK channels in addition to about 50 other channels, a DVD player if you wish to bring DVD's and also a Bose sound-dock to play your ipod. The villa also enjoys WiFi internet access. As it is built on a sloping site the villa is entered at first floor level. There is an open plan staircase down to the very spacious living / dining area. The open plan kitchen, fully equipped with fridge, freezer, oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine adjoins this room. The master bedroom with large double bed and ensuite shower room is a mezzanine floor partially above this area and there is a further twin bedroom and house bathroom on the upper floor. There are South facing doors opening onto the comfortably furnished, very private patio and pool area with sun loungers for lazy days, a table and chairs for al fresco dining and a large parasol for when the sun is a little too strong
Durban Corbieres is superbly situated to make the most of the fascinating and varied landscape of Languedoc, from the 300 km of unspoilt beaches stretching from the Cote d'Azur to the Spanish border, over 40 of which have blue flag status, to the medieval castles of the Cathars. Not forgetting of course some of the best wine growing regions in France.
The region enjoys a superb climate: Daytime temperatures in summer average 30 degrees and 20 degrees at night, making it just about the perfect climate for a holiday. This region boasts over 300 sunny days a year with an annual average of 22 degrees, great for a week away from the hustle and bustle at any time of year.
Activities: The Cathar Way long distance footpath passes through Durban Corbieres and explores all the main Cathar sites or for the less ambitious there are a multitude of walks through the vineyards enjoying the scents of the juniper, wild thyme, rosemary and lavender which grow in the wild garrigae landscapes of the region.
An unmissable Languedoc experience is to walk, boat or cycle along the tree lined Canal du Midi which passes just a few miles from Durban Corbieres.
Alternatively enjoy the quiet roads and cycle amongst the vineyards stopping at a cafe to enjoy a well desrved drink or snack. The French love of cycling is well known and the respect and space given to cyclists is a wonderful change from being in the UK.
The more active can find everything from tennis to kite surfing on the lagoons at Leucate.
As little as 70 miles away is the Pyrenean ski centre of Formigueres which has an enviable reputation for reliable snow and beautiful sunny weather.
Please see our website for more information and lots more pictures and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
Coast/Beach: 30 minutes drive to the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean. The nearest beach is a La Franqui with its fine golden sand. Also nearby is Leucate, again offering fine sand with a nudist area at the far end of the beach.
Travel: Easy access with budget flights to Perpignan, Carcassonne, Toulouse, Montpellier and Nimes from a variety of UK airports.
Just 12 miles from the A9 autoroute for those wishing to drive down and nearby Narbonne is a stop for the motorrail.
Perpignan is just 5 hours from Paris by TGV.

Four of us had a fantastic two week stay. The villa was clean and comfortable with spectacular views from the outdoor terrace. Dave and Jeanne were friendly and helpful. The area is peaceful but with plenty of wine caves and places to visit a short drive away such as Carcassonne, Narbonne and Barcelona only a 3 hour drive away (if going to Barcelona park at the airport , terminal 2 and catch the train into Barcelona ). We would definitely recommend this villa to friends.
Great Villa with beautiful view

A well maintained and spotlessly clean property in a very peaceful and beautiful location with great views towards the village & its castle. Dave & Jeanne, who look after the property on behalf of the Owners, could not have been more helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to any couple or family who are looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The surrounding area is stunningly beautiful and close to lots of Cathar Castles & the cities of Carcassonne, Narbonne & Bezier.
Relaxing villa with spectacular views
By The Beatties on 24-Aug-2016
The villa is very comfortable with wonderful views . we stayed during August when the weather was hot , however the location means there is a cool breeze and fans are provided in the rooms to help on those very hot nights. The village is a short walk and there is a very well stocked supermarket . There is not a good restaurant in walking distance but we found very good food within 5 mins drive . Plenty to see in the region. We enjoy being immersed in french life and this villa provides that .
Wonderful villa with spectacular views!

Four of us ( 2 couples) stayed here for 2 weeks . The villa was very clean, tastefully decorated and furnished and very well equipped, especially the kitchen .
The outside area was spotless as was the pool.
The villa is beautifully situated above Durban Corbieres and we never tired of sitting outside looking at the wonderful unspoilt views whilst sipping a glass of wine!
The weather was magnificent and the pool was a welcome relief from the heat.
The villa was big enough for us and having 2 bathrooms meant no queues!
Dave and Jeanne , the couple looking after the villa were very helpful when we had a minor problem and also went out of their way to help when we had car trouble.
The local supermarket had a superb boulangerie and also stocked most other items we required. Sigean and Narbonne had bigger supermarkets .
Highlight for us was visiting the Nou Camp in Barcelona. Well worth a trip if you like your football!
We had a fantastic holiday and would recommend this villa to friends and family.
