Ode to the Aude
Here nature runs wild
Ancient and new combine into one,
Firs play the harp,
Old castles and vineyards flank the sunblessed terraces!
Children love playing here,
Adults try to get lost and make up for lost time,
"Thinkers" come here to go back to their roots and feel closer to the secrets of life...
The beautiful Aude valley, nestling in the foothills of the eastern Pyrenees, situated between Perpignan and Caracassone, is fed by rivers and streams with spectacular gorges and lofty pinnacles that rise majestically into the deep blue skies. This area is steeped in history with numerous Cathar Castles in breathtaking mountain settings. Vineyards criss cross the uneven hillsides in a mixture of neat yet natural glory with the ripened grapes hanging heavily on the vines.
Rennes-Le-Chateau being one of the local places of interest, only 20 minutes away, exudes all the romantic mystery behind the Knights Templar and the Holy Grail.
It is not hard to see why past and present this area has been the choice of canvas for both famous and amateur artists!
This is a great base for all sorts of outdoor activities including skiing, hiking and much more.
Only an hour's drive from the Mediterranean coast and popular Ski resorts - the nearest only 45 minutes away, and a short distance from the high mountains of the tax haven Andorra. The nearest airport is Carcassonne, some fifty minutes drive away
