"Le Coquelicot" "Poppy"

"Le Coquelicot" (The Poppy) is the name we have given to this delightful holiday house with three bedrooms for up to 6/7 people, located in Lacombe, the department of Aude in South of France. Here you will find peace and privacy! This area of France is still largely unspoiled and has not yet been discovered by mass tourism. The Languedoc region is, however, one of the jewels of France. Its beautiful nature with the Pyrenees in the south, the beaches in the east, the Montagne Noire and the Tarn in the north and the valleys of the Minervois and Aude in the centre and west of the province is merely a background for numerous historic sites and days out.

This area is perfect for day trips to the Cathar Castles and picturesque villages. For trips to the coast, a wildlife park, the medieval citadel of Carcassonne, or one of the famous caves. For strolls along gentle becks, waterfalls or the calm Canal du Midi with its locks. For a day of leisure at one of the mountain lakes or for mountainbiking or horseback trips...

 
Le Coquelicot - Lacombe - Aude - France
 

The Château de Saissac is a ruined Cathar Castle on a promontory at the southernmost tip of the commune of Saissac, in the Aude département located north-west of Carcassonne.
The village of Saissac and its castle (or château fort) dominates the rocky headland and the ravine of the river Vernassonne, overlooking the plain of Carcassonne at an important strategic position at the entry of the Black Mountains (Montagnes Noires).
Saissac is mentioned in a legal document (an Acte) from the Abbey of Montolieu in 958, and again in a text of 960. The village is typical of the Black Mountains and is built between the ravines of the rivers Aiguebelle and Vernassonne, just above their confluence. Things to see in the village include the porte d'Autan, a lavoire built in granite, a second covered lavoire and a fine echauguette. Vestiges of the city walls (enceinte) are still visible around the ancient village. These walls date from the Fourteenth century, the same period that the castle of Saissac was restored.

Tourism:

There is something for everyone here and the unique thing is, that it is all within your reach. The sun, the wine, the Occitan hospitality and wonderful cuisine are pleasant extra's.

Come and discover the land where the Knights Templar wanted to settle down and where legend upon legend originated. Climb one of the Cathar Castles for a sublime view, enjoy a sorbet on a sunny terrace in picturesque Minerve or settle in the sand of Narbonne Plage (beach) for a day, where the sand slowly descents into the Mediterranean.

Solve the enigma of the Templars in Rennes-le-Chateau or go for a pleasant walk through the unspoilt natural beauty of the National Park de Haute Languedoc.

It is all possible here, in one holiday!
The Lac Saint Ferréol - Should you find yourself in Revel in the summer time, there is no better way to spend a day than swimming in the clean waters and sunbathing on the sandy beaches of the Lac Saint Ferréol, the beautiful lake close to Revel. A favourite with the locals, the lake is safe and pretty, set in pine forests and with numerous activities possible. There is tennis, boules, windsurfing and sailing available, and all along the road opposite the lake are restaurants and cafés, offering a wide choice of cuisines and prices. The Chinese restaurant is particularly good, and has an opulent décor which belies its very reasonable prices.
