Welcome to the Aude, in the Occitane region (formerly a part of Languedoc-Roussillon) in southern France! Many activities are possible in the region, with the biking opportunities (especially in the early and late summer) being fabulous. Enjoy the Montagne Noir, the Canal du Midi and the rest of the Aude!

Carcassonne is both the capital of, and in the heart of the Aude. Many of the topics addressed here (travel times, stores) are based on being located close to Carcassonne.
