Are you ready for a wonderful holiday? The anticipation of a booked holiday in a few months' time gives you an enormous energy boost!

So look forward to staying with us in June during the Parenting Weeks! Stay in a gite or a lovely safari tent (with private bathroom) and enjoy culinary delights such as: a luxurious champagne breakfast on Sunday morning, an extensive table d'hôtes, the more 'Burgundian' Friday Special and of course our fresh, homemade pizzas! You can also get to know a number of local wines during the wine-experience that we organise on the domaine, so that everyone can enjoy themselves.

After all this culinary pampering, do you feel like a bit of exercise? Grab one of the city bikes or the bakfiets for a trip to the Canal du Midi or go for the real thing: join Rob for a challenging mountain bike tour in the hills of Laurac! Success guaranteed;-)



As a family, you will enjoy your stay at our Domaine. Whether you choose a safari tent or one of the gîtes, the small scale, cosiness and familiarity make Birbès an ideal holiday address for families.


Discover and experience this beautiful, authentic and still quiet part of Southern France and choose for a cosy and comfortable stay at Birbès. Enjoy the peace and quiet and stay in one of the comfortable gites or a safari tent with private sanitary facilities.


Birbès is, with the exception of the high season, also available to hire for a special occasion. Consider for example painting lessons, cooking days, family celebrations, company incentives or a wedding.


A good holiday also includes enjoying all the culinary delights of a country or region. Well you are certainly well placed for that in our region! If you don’t feel like cooking for yourself, discover one of the many restaurants in the area or join us a couple of times a week at our table! You’ll find a delicious meal, a glass of wine and a surprisingly relaxed or unique conversation at one of our long tables!


Relax your mind with a bit of physical exercise! You can start the day with a swim in our lovely (heated) pool (12x6m). And there’s still so much more to discover in the beautiful surroundings! The magnificent and rugged Pyrenees or the beach are both only an hour's drive away!


You can enjoy so much beauty in this particular region, Languedoc Roussillon. Fascinating cities, traditional villages, sea, mountains and so much more. And all within an hour’s drive from our domaine! Lovers of culture will be intrigued, for example, by the history of the Cathars, in which this region has played a central role. We have made a selection of a number of events and attractions for you.


The medieval village of Laurac is situated in the rolling countryside of the South of France region Languedoc-Roussillon, surrounded by sunflower and cornfields. At the foot of this small hamlet of only 200 inhabitants, we discovered the beautiful Domaine and Birbès.

Since October 2010, we have fulfilled our dream and live and work in this wonderful place. A place to relax and enjoy all the good things that French life has to offer: sun, sea, mountains, culture, activities and of course delicious food and drinks. We are happy to welcome our guests for a pleasant stay in one of our accommodations. Whether you come alone, as a couple, with the family or with a whole group, with or without children, we do everything to give you an unforgettable holiday. We look forward to seeing you soon!
