This property is sutuated in the centre of Limoux town, near to all amenities and the central square with its many cultural activities. The annual Carnival is the longest running carnival in the world! It runs from January through to the end of March, culminating on the second Sunday before Easter when His Majesty King Carnival is burnt at the stake.
Limoux is known as the Gateway to the Upper Aude Valley. From here you can access all of the local cultural and historic landmarks and beauty spots, including Cathar Castles, lakes and mountains. Rennes-le-Château with its templar mysteries is close by.
The landscape is perfect for those who seek adventure and sport - we have white water rafting, caving and climbing - as well as for those who are looking for something more sedate - hot springs, wine tasting and gourmet restaurants with local specialities such as cassoulet and blanquette. In addition, there are activities and places to visit for all ages, from vibrant local markets to dinosaur and hat museums!
Transport to and from airports is reasonable - buses and trains arrive daily to and from Carcassonne, near the airport - whilst Carcassonne airport itself is only a 30 minute drive away.
Free Parking is available 2 minutes from the property. Specific information regarding this and all amenities is available at the property or upon request from the owner.
We live close locally and so are available for Welcome and Departure as well as to provide additional support and information, but otherwise we expect to leave our guests to themselves.
