Location of Le Gabachou


The farmhouse is situated on the banks of the Canal du Midi just 4 kms from the ancient circular village of Bram. Less than 20 kms away is the medieval cite of Carcassonne and the surrounding area is famous for mysterious Cathar castles and Churches, all steeped in legend; such as the church in Rennes – Le –Chateau, which featured in Dan Brown’s ‘Da Vinci Code’. Read Kate Mosse’s ‘Labyrinth’ and walk the old streets of Carcassonne following in the footsteps of the heroines of her book.

This unique part of the Aude inspired two celebrated British chefs to produce their own television series. John Burton Race recorded a year of relocating to France with his family in nearby Montferrand (TV series/book ‘French Leave’). More recently Rick Stein followed the Canal du Midi (sailing directly past the gardens of Le Gabachou en route – we even got a wave!) with his’ French Odyssey’ TV series.

Drive through sleepy hamlets, visit nearby Montolieu, the ‘village of the books’, sample the colourful, busy markets of Revel and Mirepoix, enjoy the numerous village fetes and brocantes held virtually every weekend in the summer ………..or head for the coast – Narbonne and Gruissan’s sandy beaches are less than an hour’s drive. Alternatively visit Toulouse for museums, exhibitions or just people watching in one of the numerous cafes on Place Capitole.

This is also the land of the famous Languedoc wines such as Minervois, Malpere and Cabardes, and the area is developing a real reputation for the quality of its up and coming organic wines. Nearby Castelnaudary (home to the French Foreign Legion – look out for their trademark white caps) is famous for cassoulet and Limoux produces the sparkling wine ‘Blanquette’.

For those guests who enjoy combining activities as well as chilling out – the area offers golf at Carcassonne, tennis courts in Bram, horse riding, cycling and walking along the tow path and boat hire. If you enjoy fishing, you only need to stray as far as the end of the garden, pull up your chair and fish on the canal banks for carp, bream and catfish – we can even lend you the rods!


Easy access by car from the A61-E80 Narbonne/Toulouse auto route.

Regular Ryan Air flights to Carcassonne from Stansted, Dublin, Liverpool and east Midlands – Le Gabachou is only about 20 minutes drive from the airport.

Alternatively British Airways, Easy jet, Fly be, Air France and bmibaby fly to Toulouse from London and several regional airports – Toulouse being less than an hours drive. There are also regular train services to Carcassonne, Castelnaudary and Bram which connect into the high speed TGV rail services throughout France.
