Fantastic Beaches, Heritage And Wine.


Narbonne is a particularly good example of all the above and offers an all year round welcome for that great holiday – sandy Mediterranean beaches, the UNESCO site of the Canal du Robine, the remains of the Roman Road – the Via Domitia and of course, excellent wines from La Clape – one amongst many.  For history buffs the Cathedral in the town centre is one of the tallest in France!

Set in the foothills of the Corbières and less than 1 hour from Carcassonne and the Spanish border and close Beziers, the natural landscape is a joy to behold and it is a great base from which to foray into the surrounding area – the local tourist offices abound with information on where to go and what to – Narbonne Tourist Office


Arboussier (AU001A )

To enjoy the region at your leisure why not stay in one of holiday villa rental properties such as Arboussier (AU001A) which sleeps 6 and is great value and ideal for families. Beaches are close and you can even enjoy an African Adventure at the nearby Sigean African Reserve Park.


If Carcassonne beckons, Domaine de Marseillens (AU026Ais in the perfect location for access to La Cité – a visit to the Dungeons is a must.

More information from Carcassonne Tourist Office and being close to Lac du Cavayere which has a beach area, water sports and plenty of acres for walking and those all important picnics – you get the best of all worlds!
