Europe > France > Languedoc-Roussillon > Sonnac sur l'Hers

With so many sunny days even in winter the Aude region offers a great variety of possibilities to spend your holidays: beautiful sand beaches, large forests in the Montagne Noire or the Pyrenees, lakes for swimming, sailing, surfing or to make lovely walks, vineyards, rolling hills, the Canal du Midi, rivers and canyons... The Aude is also rich of cultural heritage like the ruins of the Cathar castles, medieval towns like Carcassonne and Mirepoix, traces of the Romans in and around Narbonne and sleepy winemaker's villages
