Gite l'Ostal Viehl is a superb property which has been entirely renovated and refurbished in the medieval style. Located in the heart of the little village of Albas, in the Corbieres area, this beautiful gite offers a total change of scenery, which will take guests back to Cathar times.
Gite l'Ostal Viehl can welcome up to 6 people thanks to its three double bedrooms. At the front of the gite is the 'Drawbridge' terrace, built just like the drawbridges on authentic Cathar castles. Inside the house, there are an armour, medieval tapestries and many more decorations inspired by the theme of the Crusades and the Cathars. This is a truly ideal place for people interested in History.
The charming village of Albas, renowned for its tranquillity, will allow guests to go for walks among the vineyards and the Corbieres hills, but also along the Canal du Midi, on the beach or in the Pyrenees mountains, all of them being a few miles away.
The village of Albas has less than 100 inhabitants. Although there is no local shop, the baker comes on site everyday to sell his bread, croissants and pains au chocolat. The butcher and fishmonger install their booth on the village square once to twice a week and there is a little market for fruits and vegetables once a week too.
The nearest shop is located in Villeneuve les Corbières, only 5 minutes away. The village of Durban, 10 km away, has all the facilities required (mini-supermarket, bank, doctors, dentist, chemist, bar, restaurant, flower shop, library, etc.)
Gite l'Ostal Viehl is located in the picturesque village of Albas, renowned for its tranquillity and beauty. Albas is a tiny village situated among the gorgeous Corbieres vineyards and hills, not far from the famous Cathar Castles, the historic walled City of Carcassonne, the Pyrenees mountains and the Mediterranean Sea.
The towns of Narbonne, Perpignan and Beziers are only 1/2 hour to an hour away and offer a wide range of shops and markets. The Spanish border is about 1 hour away. A day-trip to Barcelona, Andorra or Les Angles, which is the nearest ski resort, can therefore be easily organized.
