Holiday Destination Information for Trebes

Details: Floure is a small village nestling under the northern ridge of the Corbieres hills. It boasts a magnificent chateau restaurant, ideal for that special evening out.

La Florette is situated between the village and the river Aude. It is the largest, south-facing part of a long building which is divided into three sections. The middle section we keep for ourselves, but we are not there when visitors are present. The smallest part of the buildiing, 'Chez Magali', faces to the north, thus ensuring privacy. The arrangement is good for security in this rural setting.

La Florette is approached along a lane which leads into your driveway with ample parking. The river Aude is about 100 yards away, but your gates prevent children wandering towards it on their own. La Florette faces south towards Mount Alaric.

The ground floor: the large sitting room with beamed ceilings, comfortable seating, satellite TV, DVD player with 100 films, many cassettes and books, telephone. The spacious dining-room, again with beamed ceiling. The kitchen with two fridges, dish-washer, microwave, 4-ring electric cooker etc. The kitchen's back door leads out on to the back garden with its barbecue, dining-table and whirligig. On the ground floor there is also a large double bedroom, and a washroom with w.c.

First floor: 3 twin bedrooms. 1 double bedroom with cot and en suite shower & basin. Bathroom with bath and separate shower, bidet and wash-basin. Separate w.c. Washroom with basin, shower and w.c. One of two washing-machines available on the premises. La Florette has oil-fired central heating. A buggy is provided for small children.

From the dining-room, porte-fenetres lead out on to the wide, south-facing terrace witrh barbecue, dining-table and outside seating. Beyond the terrace is the lawn surrounded by mature trees. It has a swing for children under supervision. A gate leads into the patio around the swimming-pool, 5x11ms, not overlooked and surrounded by plants and shrubs. The patio is securely fenced in line with current regulations. At one corner of the pool there is a hexagonal paddling-pool from which the water cascades into the pool itself. Beyond the pool there is a field for ball games.

The nearest autoroute exit is at Trebes, about 4 miles away, from which it is a quick 35-mile drive to Narbonne and the beaches at Gruissan and Narbonne Plage.

Floure is situated in the Minervois, an area well known for its excellent wine. To the south lie the Corbieres, a scarcely populated range of hills well worthy of exploration. To the north, rise the Montagne Noire and the National Park, the last bastion of the Massif Central. It is possible to take pleasure trips on the Canal du Midi. Several historic cathedral cities are within easy reach, including Montpellier, Beziers, Castres, Albi, Narbonne, Perpignan, Toulouse and St. Pons de Thomieres.

La Florette is about 8 miles from Carcassonne, one of the two or three most frequently visited places in France outside Paris. The largest medieval fortified city in Europe, it stands magnificent on its hill 150 metres above the river Aude. Restored in the 19th. century, it is a dream of the perfect medieval city with its 3 kilometres of ramparts, 35 defensive towers, its moat, Viscount's castle and basilica. There are excellent restaurants in the old city. The river Aude rises in the Cerdagne beyond Mont-Louis and flows towards Carcassonne through dramatic gorges past Limoux, home of the famous sparkling Blanquette wine. After Carcassonne, its course turns to the east towards the sea.
