La Manufacture Royaletm

Montolieu is located in the country of Cathar in the Aude’s region. This area, still unknown, offers a great diversity of beautiful landscapes. It is mainly compared to Toscana in Italy as both regions look very much alike with hills and valleys. Near of the mountain, you find two interesting historic cities; Carcassonne & Narbonne, the Mediterranean coast, the canal of the Midi, several fortified Cathar castles and a wonderful nature (fields of sun flowers, lavender and grapes).

A little further away but at reasonable distance there are the cities of Toulouse, Perpignan, and Montpellier. The Spanish border (Figueras and the Dali’s museum) is only at two hours drive from Montolieu.

The most known local culinary specialty is the Cassoulet but a large variety of comfits from duck, foie gras, and truffle are equally appreciated.

Montolieu is located in the vineyards of Cabardès which is part of the Languedoc’s wines.
