Domaine du Trabet, 14 hectares, is surrounded by vineyards and agriculture (mostly corn and sunflowers). The buildings are located around a large courtyard, partly covered (table tennis and other games)
The pool (7 by 15 m ) goes up to 1.50m deep and is very suitable for children. With its large terraces and poolhouse with surrounding trees for shade it provides a very pleasant place to stay in summer.
We provide a number of mountain bikes with helmets, tennis rackets and jeux de boules free of charge. Our guests may use the tennis courts in the villages close by.
Le Trabet is located close to the vineyards. The foothills of the Montagnes Noires start nearby and are a good bike ride.
Shops can be found in the two neighbouring villages (a few minutes by car): bakeries, butchers, supermarket, post office.
Carcassonne (10 minutes by car) has several large supermarchés and in the town centre and the Cité lots of nice shops, cafés and restaurants.

    We hebben enorm genoten van de 2 weken in Palmier! Zeer volledig uitgerust met mooie spullen en in stijl van de locatie. Onze kinderen van 8 en 10 hebben genoten van de vrijheid op het terrein en bovenal het grote zwembad. De privacy op het terras is ook heerlijk om met elkaar de dag te beginnen met ontbijt en af te sluiten met de eigen BBQ.
    De gastvrijheid van Claudia is groots en de jongens mochten nog mee op de tractor met haar man. Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar!

Restaurants, food & wine

Wine culture plays an important role in Languedoc and Aude. The second most important wine areas in Aude are Minervois and Corbières, which now produce excellent wines , both still affordable. If you are a wine lover you should leave some space in your car to take home a few boxes.
At local markets one can buy fresh vegetables and meat, straight from the farmer. In summer several local festivities take place, mostly around food and drink, such as 'Fêtes de Truffes, d’Agneau , du Vin.'
Good restaurants both low-price and high-end, can be found everywhere.


Departement Aude is known for its many medieval towns, Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi were placed on the World Heritage Site by Unesco. Besides the many Cathar castles there are numerous fortified villages ('bastides') such as Mirepoix, Limoux, Minerve and several impressive abbeys (Lagrasse, Fontfroide, St. Papoul). All certainly worth a visit as well as Rennes-le-Chateau which is featured in the Da Vinci Code.
Watersport lovers are one hour's drive away from the Mediterranean with its wide sandy beaches, windsurfing, pink salt harvest. Not to forget the lakes and wild rivers (kayak) in southern Aude.
For the enjoyment of nature and walking or hiking Aude is a true paradise . One can walk in the neighbouring, protected Parc Régional de Languedoc with its beautiful, vast forests and hills, in the Corbières and in the Pyrénées.
A stay at 'Le Trabet' will give you a combination of relaxing and being active. Relaxing in the gîte, around the house and the pool, in the cosy restaurants and on the coast. Activities: visiting historic towns, local markets and village festivities. But also unrivaled walks, picnics, cycling trips and horse riding in the quiet (even in summer) and unspoiled nature surrounding our property.
Ideal conditions for a successful holiday.

  • Bicycle
  • Near hiking trails
  • Near ATB trails
  • Near riding
  • Other courses
