Host: Christopher Colyer

Address: Mouli d’al Roc, St Julia de Bec, 11500, Quillan, L’Aude, France
Telephone: + 33 4 68 20 07 15,
Activities/Attractions: L’Aude is rich in ritualistic paganism and pantheistic beauty, able to change geographically from Tuscany to Devon in an instant. During the summer months of June, July and August, Mouli d’al Roc is an ideal place for family holidays and during the winter, autumn and spring months, ideal for those keen walkers, nature lovers and pantheists intent on exploring a beautiful, historical and non commercial part of France.
Walking in the Pyrenees, especially with the Cathare castles as focal points is a very spiritual experience. You can head off into the mist of history on a one-way journey and always rely on us to pick you up at the end of the day. There are thousands of kilometres of well maintained and chevron marked trails suitable for walkers that take you through glorious countryside. I am assured that it is possible to walk the Route de Paye Cathare from Quillan to Barcelona (350 km) and only cross two main roads.
Also try to pay a visit to Andorra ... a duty free Principality where all types of luxury goods can be up to 50% cheaper than in mainland Europe. The drive up there is magnificent and the tax-free price of fuel, alcohol and tobacco more than justifies the day excursion.
There are various summer activities from Tennis in Quillan (a great title for a novel), to the activity centre, also in Quillan where you can risk life and limb with white water rafting, canoeing, mountain climbing and canyoning. It is also possible to hire mountain bikes (VTT).
We are an off beat and informal place that deliberately chooses the chaos of relaxed human and animal behaviour over that of slick management. The conversation flows freely and so also unfortunately for my kidney does the wine. Use of local detoxification facilities can be arranged and there are plans to install a portable unit soon.
