We are close to the River Aude (great for fishing) and the Canal du Midi is only 2km away. We are only 45 minutes from several beautiful, white sandy beaches. Carcassonne and Narbonne, in opposite directions are half an hour away. We’re situated in the Minervois wine region, but very close to the Corbiéres wine region too. Tourouzelle is surrounded by about 30 Cathar castles, which are scenic places to explore. We are a great base for sightseeing, birdwatching, photography, fishing, cycling and canoeing.

Guests have access to the cour/courtyard, the biblioteque/library and the Art Nouveau salle a manger/dining room! We also have an English book swap service too!

Tourouzelle is a very friendly place. Everybody smiles and says ‘Bonjour!’ Most days are blue skies and sunshine. Wednesday night is pizza night at the local café...where we meet up with French, British, Dutch, Belgian, German...some live here, holiday here, or pop in form neighbouring villages.

Parking is available on the street outside Maison du Coquelicot.
