Enjoying great privacy, this lovely house sleeps 6 adults in 3 en-suite bedrooms,each with stunning views over the unspoilt countryside. Complete with private garden and magnificent deck, Villa La Cascade is the perfect Languedoc villa for an idyllic holiday in this undiscovered yet easily accessible part of Mediterranean France.

Lovely garden, Wi-Fi access, iPod docking stations, home cinema system and hair dryers all provided.

The Villa and Surroundings: Located in the heart of the Corbieres, Villa La Cascade is one of a small group of villas overlooking beautiful hills that stretch north of the Spanish border and sweep inland from the Mediterranean. This is an area steeped in history and blessed with a near perfect climate. Enjoying over 300 days of sunshine annually, the area benefits from long hot summers and brief, mild winters. Vineyards, ancient monasteries and medieval castles dot the landscape whilst the golden beaches of the Mediterranean are just a short drive from this Languedoc villa.

Villa La Cascade has views over the village of Durban and its medieval castle. The village is a typically southern French affair,with café, supermarket, bank and pharmacy, and of course the local cave cooperative. On the ground floor this Languedoc villa comprises an entrance hall, fully equipped kitchen, sitting room (with Wi-Fi,iPod docking station and home cinema system), cellar, guest WC and two en suite double bedrooms. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with en-suite.

The Pool & Garden: The private pool and garden provide stunning views in every direction. This Languedoc villa has an outdoor kitchen complete with built in barbecue – just perfect for lazy wining and dining in the gorgeous surroundings. At the far side of the pool area is a table and chairs with wonderful views over the valley and vineyards below and the hills of Languedoc across the valley. There's comfortable garden furniture and sun loungers, an outdoor solar shower and a range of fruit trees and a number of secluded seating areas.Should you decide not to leave the garden for the duration of your stay you will not be disappointed!

Guests always remark on the beautiful views from Villa La Cascade. One of the best things about a Languedoc holiday is the scenery, and we've made sure that the garden makes the most of it. The views from the pool area are gorgeous and if you want a little bit more peace and quiet, we've also created a hidden seating area tucked out of site just perfect for one or two!

Bedrooms & Bathrooms: Importantly all three bedrooms at Villa La Cascade have en-suite bedrooms and there's also a separate WC on the ground floor. All bedrooms have lovely fresh linen, beautiful furniture, pretty throws (and for cooler nights in the off season,nice fluffy duvets to complement the central heating if needed).

One of the ground floor bedrooms has a bath with shower enclosure en-suite whilst the other has a spacious shower. Upstairs the bedroom also has an en-suite with shower. We know that you want to be sure that when you book a villa holiday that you can be certain that you’ve made the right choice. Time and money are precious and it’s important to be confident that the facilities in your Languedoc holiday home rental are what you would expect. We feel exactly the same and that’s why Villa La Cascade is so well laid out, furnished and equipped. The bedrooms and bathrooms are pretty and comfortable and as you’d expect at home- the fittings are of the highest quality.

Villa Cascade was all that was promised and then some.

This property was very well equipped so if you like to cook regional food when you travel you will especially appreciate the kitchen. The grounds are beautiful and the home tended to with care. Although we enjoyed the beautiful weather in this part of France almost daily if we did encounter the odd one that was a bit cooler or damp we were quite content to curl up in the wonderful comfort of Villa Cascade with a book, some local wine and plans for dinner at home that night.

Wonderful little villages are just a few turns on the winding roads that are typical of this area, superb local wines and an outstanding 3 star Michelin restaurant just minutes away (be sure to bring your appetite) make this a lovely destination. There is so much to see and do in the area including the Mediterranean, Spain, the canals, Carcassonne and discovering the local history to name a few but know that a car and willingness or comfort with driving the small roads is essential to discover all that is accessible.

Our stay was for one month from the end of the first week in October to the end of the first week in November and this already quiet region is even more quiet at that time. Finding a selection of local restaurants that were still open was a bit of a challenge without driving a fair bit so the beautiful market in Narbonne and the Villa Cascade kitchen was appreciated that much more. Great layout for a family or couples traveling together.

David, Valerie and Sara (their Durban contact) were both professional and wonderful to deal with at every turn and we would not hesitate to recommend this lovely property to anyone or in fact find ourselves returning!

10 Out of 10 - A Wonderful Way to Unwind

  • 5 of 5

We would all like to thank you both very much for the use of your beautiful villa. We all gave it 10 out of 10. It had everything we needed and it was very clean and beautifully presented. The weather was fab and it was a very peaceful location. The lavender was at its best alive with bees and butterflies. I would recommend it to anyone for a wonderful way to unwind. Thank you again. Best wishes Brenda.

This is a really beautiful house in a great location and it ticked so many of the boxes for our holiday. For starters the villa is so lovely and the photos barely do it justice. It’s very well furnished, nice and spacious and has everything you’d need. It was also spotlessly clean and we were made very welcome on our arrival.

Valerie was also very helpful in answering all our questions in advance and the directions and check in were all highly professional.

The villa location is excellent – just a short walk to the village, easy to get to from a range of motorways and airports and there’s loads to do in the area. More than anything though, the views from the house are just gorgeous. We really think we chose well and we spent a lovely fortnight admiring probably the best view from a holiday villa we’ve ever experienced. We agreed that France in the imagination and the real thing are sometimes quiet different but this was the real south of France!

We flew in to Carcassonne for our holiday.As a base for Narbonne and the coast Villa La Cascade is ideal and the little villages in the area are all very pretty. The house has wifi, the bedrooms are en-suite and outside the seated dining areas are a great place to relax and take in the scenery. When we were there it was hot and sunny and the garden was a real haven with great views of Durban Corbières castle – the old fortress is just like something out of the middle ages!

If you are looking for a really relaxing holiday in higher standard of accommodation than normal (and in a convenient location) with outstanding views than Villa La Cascade really does have it all and we would recommend it for anyone looking for a relaxing break.

Beautiful Languedoc Villa, Outstanding Views

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous stay here in early May and would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting a stylish, comfortable base in which to explore the Languedoc.

A relatively modest exterior belies a fabulous garden and pool area and absolutely stunning views over vineyards and the Corbieres hills.We were delighted with our choice once we had arrived.

The villa has three en-suite bedrooms and whilst there were only four of us (two couples) the house has ample room for a bigger group. The bedrooms are all en-suite and wonderfully comfortable and the views from the two facing the hills are memorable. The kitchen is very well equipped although we didn't use it as much as we thought we might because we visited more restaurants than we had planned!

Probably the best thing about this house is the garden and deck area around the pool. We spent every morning outside lazing over breakfast because the views are so nice. We also took advantage of a little terrace lower down from where you can see the old chateau or castle of Durban Corbieres.

We liked the fact that the little things had been thought about. Hairdryers and docking sets for the ipods stand out as the sort of thing that adds unnecessary weight to baggage. Theres also a great selection of books for every taste. It's also handy to stay in a villa where all the bedrooms are en-suite (avoiding having to toss a coin!).

We also appreciated the cd system and the house book was very comprehensive.

We visited Carcassonne which is about an hour from this villa and was worth the trip depsite the fact that it got very busy. We also enjoyed the local wineries - especially that at Embres and Castlemamure. Valerie had kindly left is a bottle as a welcome gift and it encouraged us to go and visit the vineyard - its a lovely drive as are all in the area.

Overall we felt that the quality of the location, the higher than average standard of fit out and the thoughful points previoulsy mentioned made this house stand out more than most. Finally - the garden and views over the Corbieres are worth mentioning again as they really are our abiding memory of this lovely part of France.

This Languedoc villa with pool is set in one of the most dramatic landscapes in Europe. Located in the heart of the picturesque Corbieres hills, Villa La Cascade is just perfect for either an activity packed Languedoc holiday or a relaxing getaway. Within a short distance there are the ancient monasteries at Lagrasse and Fontfroide, medieval castles at Queribus and Peyrepertuse, the historic walled city of Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi meandering through the countryside north of the hills.

Nearby, the thriving market towns of Narbonne and Beziers provide a wide range of shops and services, and the city of Perpignan offers a vibrant mix of influences – more Catalan than French in atmosphere. Swimming and wind-surfing are available in the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean at Cap Leucate , just 30 minutes away. The snowy peaks of the Pyrennees rise to the south and a range of winter sports activities are available in ski resorts only a 2 hour drive from this Languedoc villa

We have had a number of guests for whom mobility is an important consideration. Villa La Cascade is well suited as all the accommodation (bar an upstairs bedroom and bathroom) is on the one level without any steps. There is parking immediately outside and one can access bedrooms, bathrooms, the kitchen and dining room as well as the deck area with no obstacles. One bedroom in particular (what we call the pool bedroom) has double sliding doors to the deck area – meaning outside access without steps and without having to go through the rest of the house to get outside.
