The Abbey of Saint Hilaire is where the first sparkling wine in the world (Blanquette de Limoux) was documented as being made (in 1531), by the monks. The recipe then went north to the Champagne region of France and become world famous. You can buy Blanquette in the village and it wins gold awards at wine tastings worldwide.

THE AREA: Saint Hilaire is in the vineyards of the Corbieres hills and between the medieval cite of Carcassonne; a UNESCO heritage site (15 minutes north) and the lively town of Limoux (15 minutes south). The village is also 20 minutes from the UNESCO heritage Canal du Midi.

THINGS TO DO: The Festival of Carcassonne is one of the largest in France and lasts from July to August. In September there is a Fiesta. The square in Limoux has night markets and music from Easter to late Autumn and it's fantastic to eat out under the arches of the medieval square and watch the festivities. The market in Limoux is on Fridays and on Saturdays in Carcassonne.

The beaches of the Mediterranean are 40 minutes drive and there's an award-winning lake beach 20 minutes north. Rennes Le Chateaux (The Da Vinci Code) is 20 minutes south, next to Rennes Les Bains, an open-air swimming pool which is filled by a warm thermal spring. There's excellent walking in the Pyrenees and its foothills, and white water rafting, Kayaking, and skiing. It's also only three hours drive to Barcelona.

HOW TO GET THERE: 20 mins drive to Carcassonne Airport, 1hr 20 mins drive to Toulouse Airport. Excellent motorway links north to the UK, east along the Mediterranean, and south to the Costa Brava - 1.5 hours away.
