Between the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees

The Languedoc region lies on the Mediterranean coast such as Perpignan and Montpellier.
One of the most southern departments in the Languedoc is the Aude, which has Carcassonne as its capital. Slightly southern of Carcassonne lies Quillan.
The region contains extensive vineyards, many castles, touristic towns, cozy markets and beautiful terraces.

Carcassonne and Quillan

For many, Carcassonne is a well-known city. Located between Toulouse and Narbonne on the Mediterranean Sea, it is best known for its world-famous Cité. This Unesco monument is a beautiful walled castle which can be considered as village itself, due to its extensiveness in size.
Half an hour's drive south of Carcassonne is Quillan, located in a mountain basin of the Pyrenees. Quillan is one of the nicest places located at the foot of the Pyrenees. The town centre lies along the river Aude. There are several restaurants on the central square, which creates a cozy atmosphere. The old stone bridge over the river is considered to be one of the main attractions of the town, as well as the remind of the old castle which has been partly restored. Just outside Quillan is FranceComfort Holiday Park L’Espinet.

Holiday park L'Espinet

This holiday park with 170 holiday homes is situated on 120 hectares of land. The houses are spread around the central facilities and have beautiful views of the mountains.
At the reception, the bar and restaurant are easily located as they are not far away. If any help is needed you can always reach out to the English speaking staff. A little further away from the reception is an indoor swimming pool with an attached wellness centre.
The loungers are always ready by the outdoor pool, and the option to lay on the beach by the lake is always around. Have you ever tried to get to the other side of a big waterfall? Or stay on a stand-up paddle?

Mediterranean Sea

The surroundings of L'Espinet are particularly suitable for all kinds of touristic activities. There will undoubtedly be a day trip to the Mediterranean Sea available on the program.
From Quillan is a beautiful road to the coast. Here you encounter all kinds of nice villages. Just before arriving by the coast you will drive past Perpignan, a city that is certainly worth a visit.
