Explore the Mediterranean coast and Cathar country in the Aude.
If you’re planning a camping holiday in Aude, prepare to discover a rich and varied region full of things to see and do. Along the Mediterranean coast the villages of Narbonne-Plage, Gruissan and Leucate offer a wealth of activities for all the family, while surfers may prefer the wind- and kite-surfing paradise of La Franqui, home to the annual Mondial du Vent surfing championships.
Explore the lovely Aude coastline
Extending back from the seaside resorts that line the coast, you’ll find the Narbonnaise en Méditerranée Regional Natural Park, an area of great natural biodiversity in a landscape of vineyards and villages. Close to your campsite in the Aude you’ll find the Étang de Leucate, an unspoilt natural habitat ideal for walking and observing the flamingos that inhabit the various lagoons.
Camping in Cathar country in the Aude
The Aude has so much more to offer than the Mediterranean, with a wide variety of landscapes stretching from the Montagne Noire to the Pyrenees. Or head inland under a cloudless summer sky to visit the formidable castles which tell the story of the mysterious Cathar movement of the 12C and 13C and the uniquely preserved medieval town of Carcassonne.
The Aude – so much to see and do
Your campsite in the Aude makes a great base for exploring the area by bike or by car. Take a trip along the Canal du Midi or the Canal de la Robine, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, or head out for the Corbières region and the white waters of the Aude valley. With its ancient mountains, plateaux, gorges and woodland, the unspoilt Aude offers a wide range of landscapes and a host of outdoor activities for a great family holiday.
What better way to discover the stunning colours and landscapes of southern France with its sunflowers, sun-baked villages and picturesque vineyards than a camping holiday in the Aude ?
