This is a beautiful region of France where vineyards and sunflowers abound.
Wine tasting is everywhere, there are wineries in Limoux Belveze and Montreal where their wines can be sampled and bought for taking home. Limoux is renowned for its sparkling wine Blanquette de Limoux said to predate champagne. It has to be tried and where better than at the summer night market held every week in July and August.
The Pyrenees are visible and easily reached, it is well worth a trip into the mountains to escape the Summer heat.
The house is a great base for visiting the remaining examples of Cathar and Medieval culture and of course the fairy tale ancient cité of old Carcassonne is a must for young and old alike.
The "rose" city of Toulouse makes a great day out and of course the Mediterranean beaches are little over an hour away and only 2 hours to the borders with Spain.
Less than 25 minutes from the house are the towns of Mirepoix and Carcassonne both of which are must dos for anyone visiting the area for the first time.
Market day is every Friday in Limoux, Saturday in Carcassonne and Monday in the medieval and historic square of Mirepoix.
This house is for anyone who wants a place to chill out completely. It is ideal for anyone who wants to spend time reading, writing or even painting - but still wants the facilities of modern life.
Anyone who likes walking and wants to be part of French life and see the vines fruit and flowers all growing will appreciate it -and they can forage for fruit and wild flowers in the lane ways around here.
There are plenty of restaurants in the bigger towns from cheap and cheerful to Michelin starred.
Limoux is a 15 minute walk away and there is nowhere better to sit in a French town square and watch the world go by - disturbed only by a marching band at festival time. A walk into town for croissants, coffee, lunch or dinner in the evening will be an integral part of your holiday.
