The region

You can relax actively. Walking, cycling and canoeing on every level. Riding your bike easily down the flat valley of the river Aude (a few hundred yards from the chateau). Challenging cycling- and hiking tours in the surrounding mountains of the Montagne Noir of the Corbieres. The many quiet golf courses in the surroundings will astound you (Carcassonne at just 12 miles, Narbonne, Beziers, Mazamet).

Would you like to see the sun rise from the sea. This area (Languedoc Rousillon) is the only place in France where you can do so! Nicely reposing or sunbathing on the beach? Sauntering along the boulevard and enjoy the many fish restaurants? All that is possible at some dozens of miles from Blomac. There is also a lot of history and culture in its surroundings. There are at least two world heritages nearby. The "Canal du Midi" is at a stone's throw from the castle's backyard. The digging of the canal started in 1662 by order of Louis XIV and links the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. The "canal" with its many quaint locks, bridges and ports can easily be sailed on by pleasure boats for rent at many places. Cycling and walking along the shady canal (huge plane trees along the entire canal) is very popular as well. The other spectacular heritage is the "Cite de Carcassone" at only 12 miles from Chateau de Blomac. The only remaining walled in, medieval town in Europe. Everybody that travelled down the motorway between Bordeaux and Narbonne has seen this monumental construction, stuck on the hilly vineyards.
