The Geographical Location of L’Atelier Volubile


L'Atelier Volubile of Peyriac de Mer is situated in the South of France, about twelve kilometres south of the town of Narbonne.

The village is at the heart of a paradisiacal site of protected lagoons. You can undertake innumerable walks and enjoy the superb panoramas, discover the wealth of the Mediterranean fauna and flora (rare bird species, salicorne, orchids…). One has easy access to the delightful little beaches around the “Doul”, a small lake nestled in the maritime hills, and whose waters are reputed to be high in salt content and thus also therapeutic. The wide beaches of the Mediterranean are just a few kilometres away.

In Peyriac de Mer you will find a few local stores to cover your daily needs… The small roads dating from the Middle Ages, the XIVth century fortified church (with its historical XIXthcentury organ), the archeological museum with its impressive collection of pre-roman artefacts (including an amazing collection of ancient jars) are part and parcel of the historical past of this occitanian village of 1000 inhabitants.

You will find L'Atelier Volubile situated in close proximity to the centre of the village, near an ancient mill, in a tranquil and shady setting.

From the coast to the hinterland, the department of AUDE includes an exceptional natural and cultural heritage: the hills of the Corbières, the Canal du Midi, the Castles built by the Cathars, Cistercian abbays, wine routes, the medieval City of Carcassonne, floral town of Narbonne (the first roman colony), important centres of literature (Verdier Edition and Le Banquet du Livre in Lagrasse, the Montolieu village of the Book and the Graphic arts (with its sixteen bookshops !), the excellent bookshops such as Le Trouve-Tout du Livre in the village Le Somail and Libellis in Narbonne), Les Ateliers de la Maison du Roy of Sigean (Art Gallery; Atelier of lithography; relief printing and intaglio techniques Courses), the C.E.P. of Sallèles d’Aude (European Centre of Fabrics and Patchwork) …
