Leucate Property Insight


Leucate is a French town situated in the Aude department (in the Languedoc-Roussillon region) whose name comes from the Greek “leukos” which means white. The beautiful town of Leucate is characterised by 18km of fine-sandy beaches, a calcareous/limestone cliff plunging/diving in the turquoise waters and the Corbières Massif, where the scenery is as diversified as wild! The town stretches over five main sites/entities: Port Leucate (the most famous beach of Leucate which seems endless at first sight!), Leucate beach (the family beach), “la Franqui” (a family beach located at the foothills of the cliff), Leucate village (typical Mediterranean old village) and the naturist areas (accessible only for naturists, either residents or holidaymakers), amongst which you can discover 3 main natural protected areas.

Overview

Leucate represents the entrance door of the Natural Park of the region. The town used to be an isle, but is nowadays a peninsula in the heart of a marine environment; 18km of Mediterranean coastline, 31km of pond beaches, isles and harbour ponds/basins. The village is the traditional place for wine-growing, fishing and oyster-farming. Although the inhabitants of Leucate were originally of marine/maritime tradition, wine-growing has become a significant part of Leucate’s culture. Indeed, due to its sunny vineyards which make Leucate wines very particular, wine-growing is now one of the main resources of the town’s inhabitants. Finally, oyster-farming is the third economic activity of Leucate, after tourism and wine-growing. Many other places are worth a visit such as the plateau, the pond, the sculptures, the cave and vestiges…
