Welcome to our B&B in Esperaza in the Aude Valley in the Languedoc region of the South of France. Attractions you will find in the area include Cathar and Templar Castles dating from the time of the Crusades, wine-tasting, the landscapes of the Aude Valley and for some, above all, the mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau.

Rennes-le-Chateau, da vinci code country

Rennes-le-Chateau, with its links to the da Vinci code mysteries, will enthrall you.  Just a 10-minute drive from the Bed and Breakfast, it makes a fascinating trip.

Queribus - Chateau Cathar

The many Cathar Castles to visit include the chateaux of Queribus, Montsegur, Peyrepetuse... All are easily accessible from the Bed and Breakfast.  You can make a short excursion to the preserved medieval walled city of Carcassonne, an important centre of Cathar history. The Cathars were active in Carcassonne in the 11th century. All the Aude Valley is Cathar Country.

Limoux, famous for its sparkling wine (Blanquette de Limoux) and its carnival, is just a 20-minute car drive from the Chambre d'Hote.  So if you enjoy wine-tasting there are many opportunities here.
