You can spend a holiday here at Château de Massignan throughout the year.
Spring reaches us as early as February, with the scent of almond
and mimosa blossom wafting across Château de Massignan.
The 200 km of sandy beaches, with traditional fishing villages, harbours and
lagoons, are also delightful to visit, and not just in summer.
Choose the most beautiful season of autumn, when the grapes
are harvested and the countryside is bathed in brilliant colours, to enjoy the
first tasting of the wines. And in winter, the light is as
clear as ever, the weather is like a warm sunny British autumn. The Christmas
markets and the view of the snow-capped Pyrenees also make winter a lovely time
to come here for a long weekend to escape grey skies, or to flee entirely the
British winter in the south of France.
Whatever season you choose to enjoy the uniqueness of Château de Massignan,
ask us about the current festivals and highlights.
Centuries-old traditions keep the popular festivals alive. For instance, the
Limoux carnival in January; the Easter procession in Perpignan; the windsurfing
championships in Gruissan; the Fête de Cassoulet, dedicated to the famous
local dish; the Festival du Jazz; the historical theatre festival with historical
food; the concerts in the abbeys with tastings; and lots more.
