Limoux Studio Apartment
About the home
In the heart of Limoux, above street level, in the sunny Cathar country of Languedoc Roussillon, you'll find this delightful studio apartment with a lovely roof terrace. It's just a few steps from the main square, the boutique-style shops, the cafe-bars and the restaurants. It's ideal for a couple. You can just walk a very short distance into the town to take part in the 'cafe culture', watching the world go by and experiencing first hand the French art de vivre.
The apartment is well-presented and is an ideal place to stay if you are exploring the Languedoc, en route to somewhere else, or just want a short break in the sunshine! If you don't want to hire a car, you don't need to as, subject to availability, the owners can arrange to collect you from and deliver you back to Carcassonne airport so you can take advantage of the low cost airlines' special offers! x'

The Limoux area
Limoux is an ancient, pretty, market town on the banks of the River Aude, in the department of Aude in Languedoc Roussillon and is about 25 minutes drive from Carcassonne Airport. It has everything you would imagine a southern French market town would have: a lovely main square with a big fountain, an interesting galleried arcade of shops, cafe-bars and restaurants, a Friday market, museums and concerts and events almost all year round.
The Carnival of Limoux, known locally as the 'Fecos de Limoux', is a yearly event. In 2011 it starts on 10th January and ends on Sunday 10th April. Most of the carnival events are on Saturdays and Sundays and take place in the main square - they are very colourful and interesting with all the participants in bright local costumes. Additionally, there are other events and concerts right through the summer months.
Limoux is famous for Blanquette de Limoux, a delicious sparkling white wine - be sure to try it on your next visit!
Sports Facilities: include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, walking, cycling, kayaking, fishing, and in the winter months Limoux is just over 1 hour's drive from the nearest ski resort.
Sightseeing: you are really in a great location here for visiting Carcassonne and Mirepoix, both fascinating places. In Carcassonne head for the fairytale medieval city, the Carcassonne festival in July and August, and the Christmas market in December. Mirepoix is one of the most stunning medieval bastide towns we have ever seen and makes for a lovely day out.
For lovers of the mountains you can visit the Pyrenees and Andorra to the South and the Black Mountains to the North. For those of you interested in the history of the Cathars, there are several Cathar Castles to visit as well as Rennes-le-Chateau for those of you interested in the Holy Grail stories. The Mediterranean beaches are approximately a 90 minute drive away.
Markets: In Limoux the market is on a Friday morning. There are other markets in Carcassonne and Mirepoix, as well as others in local villages.
Restaurants : Limoux has many cafe-bars and restaurants just a short walk away.
Supermarket: There's a small supermarket 300 metres from the apartment, and a larger one on the edge of town.
