Sightseeing: Limoux is an attractive place with a wonderful sense of fun, and whilst well 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 surrounding areas. Carcassonne is famous for its medieval castle, the Carcassonne festival in July and August, and the Christmas market in December and Mirepoix is one of the most stunning medieval bastide towns in the area. For lovers of the mountains you can visit the Pyrenees and Andorra to the South and the Black Mountains to the North. There are several Cathar Castles to visit detailing the history of the Cathars or for those of you interested in the Holy Grail stories a visit to Rennes-le-Chateau is a must. The popular Mediterranan beaches of Perpignan and Narbonne (and lots of other beautiful but lesser known beaches) are approximately a 90 minute drive away, or you can relax and bathe in the soothing thermal mineral springs in the spa towns of Rennes-le-Bain and Alet-les-Bains.
Many brochures detailing Local Attractions & Events are available in the apartment or contact the Tourist Office in the Promenade du Tivoli for more information.
Limoux is a pretty, ancient, market town on the banks of the River Aude, and is about 25 minutes drive from Carcassonne Airport. It has everything you would imagine a traditional French market town would have: a lovely main square with a big fountain, an interesting galleried arcade of timber framed houses, shops, cafe-bars and restaurants, a vibrant Friday market, plus Tuesday evening market in July and August, museums, concerts, festivals and events almost all year round.
The Carnival of Limoux, known locally as the “Fecos”, is a yearly event which runs from January to April. Most of the carnival events are on Saturdays and Sundays and take place in the main square.This is the longest carnival in France and is conducted in the traditional Occitan language. There are also Folklore Festivals, Spanish week-ends (Feria) and Bastille Day celebrations with amazing firework displays, and music in the square most week-ends throughout the summer.
Limoux is famous for Blanquette de Limoux, a delicious sparkling white wine which predates champagne - sit in the square and enjoy a glass; or tour one of the many vineyards in the area and enjoy the “degustation” (wine tasting).There are approximately 2,800 producers in Languedoc-Roussillon, making it one of the world’s largest wine-producing regions and between them they make around two billion bottles of wine a year!
