Great traditional local French towns with superb markets and lots of activities. 14 acres encircle the Domaine with clouds of butterflies, a huge variety of birds and flowers and a friendly horse. At an altitude of 1300 feet with no near neighbours and surrounded by hills, you can expect to enjoy total tranquility at the Domaine.

There is easy access to the nearby charming and popular towns of Limoux and medieval Mirepoix. We are enviably located for trips to the ever popular fortified City of Carcassonne (35 mins) along with a wealth of well known attractions such as wine tasting and tours, excellent markets, tradition family run specialist shops, churches and abbeys, painting, Cathar Castles, prehistoric sites and caves and of course the Mediterranean coast.

Parking directly in front of apartment with very easy roll in access with sliding wide internal doors for our less mobile guests.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region

This region is an extremely popular area to stay in France. Enjoying lovely long warm Summers and pleasant temperatures in Spring and Autumn. Lots of local history in and stunning scenery. Cathars castles dot the region and the rural French countryside provides many "WOW" moments (don't go anywhere without your camera!) on any drive in the area. Mirepoix, Limoux, and Carcassonne are minutes away and have events year-round.

Mediterranean beaches, lakes, rivers, mountains, vineyards, wineries. Landscapes are nevertheless very diverse, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Pyrenees mountains. Amongst a rich heritage, discover the medieval castles, the « Citadelles du vertige » (literally, head spin citadels), evidence of the fascinating Cathar history; romanesque abbeys and cloisters; the Medieval city of Carcassonne; the Roman city of Narbonne; prehistoric caves; and many other unique locations. There are a wide range of outdoor activities in spectacular landscapes : walks under the centenarian trees bordering the famous Canal du Midi, hiking, water sports, cycle touring, mountain bike tours, speleology, and many more. Above all, Aude hosts the biggest and oldest vineyard of France. Gastronomy is an art in this region, where you'll be delighted by local recipes and grand wines.

Peyrefitte-du-Razes

Limoux is perhaps best known for its Winter festival, Carnival or fête. It is generally referred to as Carnaval de Limoux in the French language. This takes place between January and Easter. As of 2011 the wine Festival "Toques et Clochers" will be held in Limoux every spring.The cafe scene is dominant in Limoux where food and drink represent the dominant cultural pastime.

The heart of the town is the place de la République, a wide square with some fine stone arcading and a number of timber framed houses. Limoux straddles the River Aude and the banks are lined with grand houses, especially on the eastern side, the so-called Petite Ville (lit. "Small City").

Limoux is an attractive place with a wonderful sense of fun. The town likes to party in a most unself-conscious way and for its own pleasure rather than for the sake of tourists. While worth visiting in itself, it is also an excellent base for discovering the history of the region and is ideally placed for exploring the coast, the mountains and some of the finest walking country in France.

Mirepoix: On the large central square you can still admire the half-timbered houses supported on wood pillars, creating a magnificent covered arcade. The ends of the joists of the richest houses are sculpted, and the most beautiful sculptures are on the house of the Justice du Seigneur, which became in 1500 the Maison des Consuls, showing women's faces, bearded heads, a tortoise and other fantastical images.

The little church of St Maurice built in 1298 by Jean de Lévis and his wife Constance de Foix was transformed over time into a cathedral. Today the cathedral of St Maurice has a single nave 48 m long, 24 m high, 22 m wide, a gothic gate and an elegant 60 m high pointed belltower. Of the cathedrals of Europe only that of Gerona in Spain has a wider nave. You can still admire a tabernacle, a Christ on the cross from the 14th century and seven paintings by Larivière-Vesontius.

Peyrefitte-du-Razès is a small village on the road midway between Limoux and Mirepoix with signage directing you to Domaine de Couchet.
