White water sports
For thrill seekers why not try rafting, canoe rafting or canyoning at the water sports centre in Quillan
The Aude river, which runs next to our house, is famous throughout France for being ranked 1st category for trout fishing. The season runs from March until September and local licences are inexpensive and available in the Village shop.
Whether you cycle like a pro tour cyclist or just for leisure the Pyrenees offers some spectacular roads and views. Le Tour de France passes through this area most years. The region has some of the best mountain bike trails in the south of France. http://www.letour.fr/en/overall-route
Skiing and snowboarding in the Pyrenees is a popular winter activity and our closest ski station is only 37km away at Camurac or the larger ski resort at Ax les Thermes is just 58km away.
This area is perfect for hiking and trekking while discovering the beauty of local villages. You will be amazed by stunning landscapes, gorges and huge vineyards on the well marked trails.
Several hundred kilometres of marked paths allow you to ride and discover landscapes and small villages at your own pace. You can also improve your technique in riding centres with a qualified teacher.
