The Roques apartment Corbieres

Taurize, Corbieres, Languedoc


Beautiful countryside Corbieres retreat

Stylish apartment for two with access to a sleek black pool (and a grand piano) in the heart of the Corbieres countryside – an ideal artistic and musical sanctuary.

The Location

Set in a quiet location in a rural corner of the Corbieres countryside, this apartment is a perfect escape. Surround yourself with the vistas and space and that incredible peace. There are villages nearby, like tiny Taurize or the wine producing Servies en Val with its castle and local shops and cafes. For a day out drive the short journey to historic city of Carcassonne with its citadel and cobbled laneways – make sure you stay for lunch or supper and enjoy the city’s superb French cuisine. Other options include Limoux or Lagrasse, a medieval village, only 15 minutes away or maybe Minerve with its views over the gorge, but really it’s the peace and tranquillity that will draw you in during a stay at The Roques.

You can take a train from London King’s Cross to Carcassonne via Paris Nord, Gare de Lyon, Paris Gare De Lyon, and Narbonne in around 9 hours. Alternatively, you can fly direct to Carcassonne.

A car is ideal here to be able to explore and reach your basic necessities in such a rural location.
