Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Limoux, France your home away from home

The Limoux area lies in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, nestled between the sea and the mountains. The vibrant, welcoming and colourful city of Limoux lies in the centre of the region, and has a great wealth of impressive monuments and imposing villas stemming from the wealth derived from its position on an important trading route with Spain.

Things to do in Limoux, France

The Limoux area, especially the city itself, is a cultural hotbed. Throughout the year, a vast range of musical, theatrical and dance performances are put on, attracting both locals and visitors. Local markets are a highly social and important occasion, and the villages and towns of Limoux all have weekly markets. One of the finest in the area is the Friday market in Limoux itself, where you can buy local crafts and locally grown produce, fresh from the orchards, vineyards and farms in the area. The sparkling white wines of Limoux are particularly special, dating back far beyond the origins of Champagne.

The region encompasses much of the historic Cathar Country, and many of the beautiful, extravagant Cathar Chateaux can still be seen proudly dominating the landscape. There are some fantastic walks to be done, both along the banks of the River Aude and more strenuous hikes into the Pyrenees Mountains. Mountain biking and horse riding holidays are also particularly popular from a self catering Limoux holiday rental. In fact, there are very few outdoor activities that you cannot enjoy from a Limoux holiday rental. Climbing, mountain biking, canyoning, fishing, white water rafting, canoeing, hiking and paragliding can all be enjoyed during the spring, summer and autumn, and in winter, you are not far from the ski resorts of the Pyrenees in a Limoux property.

The famous Limoux Fecos (carnival or fate) lasts from January right through to Easter, and is an absolutely magnificent time to be staying in Limoux accommodation.

What can I say .. the villa was all I could have hoped for! The weather was amazing with wall to wall blue skies and sunshine but outside it was freezing! Not to worry, the villa was warm and cosy the whole time, thanks largely to the luxury of the underfloor heating and then of course there was the glorious woodburner, which we fired up in the evenings .. not because we needed more heat, but because it was just so great to lounge in front of it, watching the TV with a glass of the local Fitou! The villa is spotless ... the kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils and crockery you could wish for plus, of course, a dishwasher! The ground floor is open plan and ideal for families or groups of friends ... you can cook, dine and doss around together, which is ideal! There is a double suite on the ground floor, which is ideal for those who might have less mobility than they'd wish and three more double rooms (two with twin beds) upstairs, with the biggest shower room I've ever seen for them to share. The garden is just beautiful ... it's got a great deck and pool area ... even though (naturally!) it wasn't being used in January!! The rear garden goes down to the River Aude and would be perfect for anyone wanting to do a bit of fishing. It might even suit those who are wild swimmers if there's enough water in the warmer seasons, that is! I think this property is a gem and would suit anyone looking for a break in the Languedoc. It's within an hour of the coast and glorious beaches of Argeles sur Mer and Canet Plage, the amazing city of Carcassonne as well as the classic towns of Foix & Limoux. Even in the depths of winter there was so much to see and do that I can't wait to return!

The cottage is in a wonderful location for exploring the Pyrenees and the Cathar Castles. We enjoyed our stay very much.
