Located in the picturesque village of St Jean de Paracol,
and nestled in the upper slopes of a valley which follows the river Faby to its convergence with the river Aude, in Espéraza. On the other side of Espéraza, is the magnificent hamlet of Rennes le Chateau. This chateau, and many other significant sites in Cathar Country are famous for their mystical, and often conspiratorial histories.

St Jean de Paracol itself is a cosmopolitan village filled with an inspiring mix of local French people and immigrants, artists and creatives, many doing beautiful and creative things daily, whether it's gardening, painting, teaching, crafting, building or composing.
