Welcome to the heart of the Cathar world with Carcassonne as the capital. An area with rich historical importance, located between the sea and mountains. The Cathar presence has left many interesting places to visit, the fortified city of Carcassonne, and abbeys such as Saint Hilaire and Fontfroide.
This beautiful region has so much to offer and Aude is right in the heart of it. Whether it be the Cathar castles or the Canal du Midi, Carcassonne the warrior or Lagrasse the contemplative, in Aude lands, you're on a land with a unique character.

With the weather in your favour, who would not want to get out and enjoy some summer fun!
This guide will help you choose from a variety of options to make your holiday one to remember.
Espace de liberté
This fantastic leisure center, located only 15 minutes drive away, will certainly keep you entertained.
The Espace de liberté leisure complex features indoor and outdoor swimming pools, with waterslides, volleyball courts, childrens paddling pool, and an outdide lounge area.
For those among us that want to cool off, what better way then to try the all-year round ice skating rink. The leisure center supplies all the essentials so no need to bring your skates with you. And should it get too cold, then you always have the mediterranean climate to fall back on.
After a long hard day of enjoying yourselves, why not keep going by trying out their Bowling center. There is nothing like that feeling of hitting a strike and then going on to celebrate in the attached typically Victorian Pub. The Victorian Pub features Rock & Blues concerts every Thursday and is also a great venue for sports events.
There is a large car park so no need to worry about parking your car. I would strongly recommend that if you are going to either the Grand Buffet restaurant or looking to check out the Bowling center to phone in advance and make reservations. If you wish this to be done prior to the commencement of your holiday, then please let us know and we will make the necessary arrangement for you.
If you wish to share an unique experience of being able to fly without a parachute then you must try the Flyzone simulator in Lezignan Corbieres.
The Flyzone is located only a short 10 minute drive away and will make for a fun day out in one of the most powerful simulators in Europe. Prices start from €29 and is suitable for ages 7 - 97.
