The "La Saignée" holiday home is located 10 kilometres north east of the city of Narbonne in the province Aude of the region Languedoc-Rousillon, with its capital Carcassonne, which has a beautifully restored fortification. This province derives its name from the river Aude. The region is fascinating and includes approximately 50 km of Mediterranean coastline, Cathar country and the foothills of the Pyrenees. Aude has a Mediterranean marine climate with 300 days of sunshine each year. Spring and autumn average day temperatures reach a minimum of 20°C. Summer temperatures fluctuate between 25°C and 30°C.

The holiday home is located approximately 3 kilometres from the charming village of Ouveillan on 3-hectares of private ground at a slight distance from our own house. You can stay here in totally peaceful rural surroundings while enjoying a magnificent panorama of vineyards, mountains, villages and the ruins of an old abbey. Fully renovated in 2002, the house has a traditional feel and is tastefully decorated (primarily with new furniture), to accommodate a maximum of 6 persons. The distance from Calais EuroTunnel is approximately 1070 kilometres.

Carcasonne"La Saignée" serves as the ideal base for visiting numerous places of interest, restaurants, and attractive and interesting towns and villages such as Carcassonne, Montpellier, Narbonne and Minerve. The Mediterranean Sea is located approximately twenty minutes away by car.
