The Languedoc-Roussillon region
This is a beautiful region of France where vineyards and sunflowers abound.
Wine tasting is everywhere including in the village itself.
The Pyrenees are visible from many places locally and easily reached.
The location is wonderful too for visiting the many Cathar castles and of course the fairytale 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.
The gite is located on a domain situated approximately 25km from Limoux a popular market town and 30km from the medieval walled city of Carcassonne. The castle at Carcassonne is a hit with the young and old alike, steeped in history and with a little imagination one can step back in time 9especially if you have read "Labyrinth" by Kate Mosse).
Limoux is renowned for its sparkling wine Blanquette de Limoux said to pre-date champagne. It has to be tried and where better than at the Tuesday night summer market held every week in July and August. Market day is every Friday in Limoux. The main market in Carcassonne is on Saturday with smaller markets on a Thursday. The not to be missed atmospheric market in Mirepoix is every Monday morning where bussling shoppers bargain amongst the beautiful architecture of the town.
