Gruissan is a unique village in the Aude department of the Languedoc. It lies on the Canal du Robinet with a back drop of the Black mountains behind. To the north the hills rise to meet the densely wooded Parc National Haut Languedoc; to the south the open garrigue descends to the vine-covered plains around Narbonne (10 mins), with the Mediterranean a few minutes from your front door.
The area is renowned for its wildlife, birds, innumerable varieties of butterflies and of course, boating and every water sport on the Mediterrean.
The village itself is surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers.
Your neighbours in Gruissan are mostly French and are very friendly. Gruissan is lovely for cycling and walking and driving to the top of a valley that gives panoramic views over the Minervois and the Corbieres to the Pyrenees beyond. There are many excellent restaurants in the immediate area.
