Durban-Corbieres, Aude, Occitanie
Located in a small, exclusive, residential development in the Corbieres hills, Villa Matisse has the most superb views over the surrounding countryside. The villa is built using local stone and wood and blends well with its idyllic surroundings offering you serene moments relaxing in the sun and cooling off in the swimming pool.

Whilst in a rural setting the villa is just ten minutes walk from the village of Durban Corbieres, a 30 minute drive from the beaches on the Mediterranean coast and less than 1 hour's drive from both Perpignan and Carcassonne. The lovely town of Narbonne is within easy reach, as is the border with Spain.

Reviewed 16 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Great place for a couple or family with children, say aged 7 plus, due to mezzanine balcony design of main bedroom. Well equipped kitchen, open plan layout, gorgeous views from private terrace of old ruins of cathar castle, which is lit up at night.

Village is sleepy and typically French with a small Super U supermarket, a garage, bar opposite that serves basic food and a couple of wine producers where you can taste and buy. Not much else facilities wise.

Great little pool outside for cooling off. Main attraction was the ever changing light on the hills and castle opposite, beautiful.

Easy parking, own designated space. Quite a lot of stairs inside and out so not good for toddlers needing stairgates or the elderly or infirm.

You are off the beaten track here so main attractions tend to be a one or so hour drive from places like Carcassonne, Peyrepetuse castle (fantastic views), and the coast about an hour as roads are small and winding...

About the neighbourhood
The property is located a short walk from the centre of the well-kept village of Durban Corbieres which has a small supermarket, a boulangerie, a bar and a restaurant, a pharmacy and a post office. The old part of the village leads up a hill through narrow, winding streets to the old chateau and the ancient church at the summit. The newer part of the village is on the opposite bank of the River Berre.

Sports Facilities: The immediate area lends itself to walking and mountain-biking, in fact the 'Cathar Way' a popular long distance footpath crosses through Durban. There's also tennis courts in the village and a municipal swimming pool. All types of watersports are available at the Mediterranean coast e.g. Leucate is especially popular for wind-surfing and kite-surfing.
