The region is steeped in Cathar history - it is known as "Le Pays Cathare" and there is a magnificent chain of Cathar castles stretching all the way to the Mediterranean including Montsegur and Foix in the Ariege. The local chateau of Puivert was home to the troubadours of the middle ages. You can also visit the chateaux of Querigut, Peyrepeteuse, Puillerans, Queribus. The walled city of Carcassonne, a world heritage site, is an hour's drive via Limoux.

Perpignan is a beautiful drive approx an hour and a half away with very easy access to all the beaches of the coastline stretching north to Narbonne and south past Argeles and Colliure into Spain.

Wine tastings and visits: Limoux (35 mins) famous for its sparkling Blanquette plus many domains which conduct tours and tastings all the way to the coast.

Markets: Esperaza, Lavelanet, Mirepoix, Foix, Limoux
