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.
Thr 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 and Andorra.
The house is located in a village called Alaigne and is situated approximately 9km from Limoux. Alaigne is typical of a sleepy circulade village of the region where the pace of life is very slow but you may find yourself here when there is a local fete and then there will be dancing in the streets. The village has a boulangerie, post office and a very welcoming cafe/bar.
The nearest town is Limoux, which 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. Market day is every Friday in Limoux and Monday in the medieval and historic square of Mirepoix which is not far away and well worth a visit.
