The old village rises above the Canal du Midi and enjoys stunning views over the valley of the River Aude to the volcanic hills of the Corbières, and beyond to the sharper peaks of the Pyrenees to the south. The village has tennis courts (basic racquets and balls provided) and a children`s playground.
Sandy and safe Mediterranean beaches are 40 minutes away. La Nautique at Narbonne offers windsurfing and sailing tuition and hire, while Aqualand at Cap d`Agde is a huge water park with great slides. The countryside is a paradise for walkers and cyclists, and Paraza houses what is probably the best bike hire business in the region (Mellow Velos).

Golf is available at Carcassonne (apparently the 9th hole is particularly fine) and Beziers. We are close to Minerve, a Cathar stronghold, and within easy reach of several Cathar castles. The area also has a strong Roman and pre-Roman history, having once been an important trading area. Opportunities for wine tasting are numerous and we have a local producer of olive oil.
The foothills of the Pyrenees and Montagne Noire offer more challenging walking, cycling, and canoeing, and the closest Pyrenean ski slopes are only two hours away.
This part of Southern France attracts artists and photographers, with its colourful landscape which changes dramatically through the seasons.
