Property description

Located in the heart of Cathar Country, this quaint, recently renovated house is located on a quiet square in the center of Quillan. View of Chateau and just two houses from the Aude River. Walking to all amenities (bakeries, cafes, restaurants, train station, post office, banks, swimming pool, etc.).

Each bedroom is totally private on a separate floor with its own bath featuring towel warmers. All windows face the chateau and offer ample light. Heat is electric. Kitchen is located on the ground floor.


Quillan:: Through the Pierre Lys and St Georges gorges, enjoy 12 km of sporting river! Rafters, white water swimmers, and kayakers from all levels of ability are offered the most exceptional water sports spot in the Pyrenees.

Markets in Quillan are on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Surrounding villages host markets, so you are likely to find a market nearby every day of the week. Why stay in a hotel, when you can rent an entire house and enjoy the many flavors from the markets.

Limoux (30 minutes) - Famous for its 3-month long carnival. - Catha-Rama : a 30-min audio-visual show about the cathar religion and history. Musée-Petiet: a 'belle époque' museum. Numerous Blanquette wine cellars, wine tasting and buying.

Alet les Bains (25 minutes) - Health spa- Village built around its abbey, old bishopric. Beautiful half-timbered houses in the village, after the old wash bridge supplied with a continuous flow of thermal water. Bring your empty water bottles and fill up with natural spring water and do laundry if you are into hand-washing!

Espéraza (15 minutes)- This village has been marked since the 19th century by the production of felt hats- In the old station, visit the museum of Millinery - Dinosaurs Museum: the paleontological excavation area that supplies the museum is open to the public in July and August, at a 5 km distance in Campagne/Aude.

Car: Recommended

Quillan is a small town and commune in the Aude département, in southwestern France located at the foothills of the Pyrenees, on the road between Carcassonne and Perpignan. Located at the top of the Haute Valley of the Aude, close to the mountains, this is an excellent area for hiking and mountain biking as well. Horseback Riding is available nearby and the views are amazing. Take a short trail ride or sign up for multiple days.

Carcassonne is a must see and just one hour away. The medieval walled town lies on the right bank of the River Aude and is featured on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. It has 52 towers and 2 rings of town walls making a total of 3 km of battlements. There is no restriction on access to this area of Carcassonne. It is still home today to its population of approximately 120 and it boasts a large number of shops and craftsmen.

Other Activities: kayaking, rafting

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Celine and David are the owners of the property. We purchased this 150+ old village house with nothing but a kitchen sink and a toilet and turned it into a very comfortable home. We have raised two daughters and now have two grandsons and we live on beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington state.

Why the Owner Chose Aude:
Having spent some of my childhood in the area with my grandmother, it was an impulsive purchase during a vacation in 2006. My husband has also always loved the area and we are anxious to explore the area further now that we have done so much work on the house.
