The villa has a large decked area with a private pool and stunning views of the vineyard strewn hills, and on those warm, tranquil, summer evenings you can dine alfresco on the covered patio with it's built in barbecue.

Another great week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in 2012 and came back again with different friends. The villa and pool were still as great the second time. The friends had never been to this area and fell in love with it. The weather was hot and sunny and we made good use of the pool. Would definitely stay again and recommend. Thank you Sue.

Lovely peaceful villa in the Aude.

  • 5 of 5

We want to let you know that we had a wonderful stay at Villa Romarin. We must say it was one of our best holidays! You should be very proud to own this lovely villa in the South of France!

The view was spectacular! Our 3 kids enjoyed the pool very much and several games which were present. As a mountainbiker it was fun to use one of the mountainbikes to ride in the hills and to go shopping in the village.

We were pleased to have the necessary accommodation in the villa and appreciated the amount of books and CD’s.

We visited the beach at Port-La-Nouvel, the market in Sigean (every Tuesday), Leucate, La Franqui, Narbonne, Lagrasse, Perpignan, Carcasonne, Minerve and Collioure even twice.

We certainly will come back the discover more of the Corbières region!

Perfect relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in your villa.

We did have the wind on the first day but that helped us to acclimatize to the warmer temperatures. It was quite eerie how you could hear it coming up the valley! The villa is very well equipped with books, novels and guide books, DVD's,pool toys and the bikes. We enjoyed our walk every morning to the shop to buy a baguette and fruit etc. There was no need to venture any further.

Thank you once again for the loan of your property and we will certainly recommend it.

A Fantastic place to spend a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to the south of France and was definitely the best holiday we've had! The villa was very clean, comfortable and spacious and the views were amazing.The kids loved playing in the pool and we had some great bbq's. Its a fantastic area to explore and we found lots of interesting markets-Olonzac and Sigean, as well as lovely beaches in La Franqui and Port La Nouvelle. Well worth a visit to the local wine caves which were amazing! The village itself has a good supermarket and a bakery for fresh baguettes and croissants. The villa is also within easy reach of the Canal du Midi-a lovely part of France, where you can stroll along the river and soak up the atmosphere. We would certainly recommend the area and the villa and hope to visit again soon.

Durban-Corbières is located in the heart of the majestic Fitou, Corbières and Minervois wine producing region. The village centre with its tennis courts, bar/restaurant, bank, doctors' surgery, petrol station, supermarket, bakery,chemist and other shops is a short, pleasant walk from the villa. For swimming and wind-surfing, the beautiful Mediterranean beaches at Leucate and Le Franqui are only 40 mins away . The renowned African wildlife reserve at Sigean is 30 mins away. Further afield are the Pyrenées to the south for walking and skiing, whilst to the north is the Canal du Midi. Wherever you go, you are not far from Cathar history and the remains of their spectacular castles, including the citadel at Carcassonne. Throughout the year there are festivals in the towns and cities such as Carcassonne, Perpignan and Montpellier. For something different there is the lure of tax free shopping in Andorra, or you may wish to cross the border into Spain to visit the Dali museum at Figueres.

Ski: Skiing is available during the winter in the Pyrenées - about 1 1/2 hours' drive.
