The Gite is a modest but very well equipped property on the outskirts of the beautiful town of Limoux. Perfect for any couple looking for a quiet, relaxing stay.
It is well located, being walking distance (20 minutes or so) from the town centre and it is worth the walk since Limoux is a bustling small town with lots going on at different times of the year.
The location is also perfect for exploring the Aude valley and surrounding area and I would recommend the use of a small hire car to do so - there are very many beautiful locations to visit, some being on mountain top locations with small, narrow roads giving access.
By car, Carcassonne and Castelnaudary to the North are easily accessible, (although the 1 Euro train to Carcassonne is easier than parking!) as is the coast to the East. Spain is also quite accessible to the South without too much trouble- overall a brilliant central location.
Hosts Paul and Patricia are lovely individuals and were particularly helpful and they have a great knowledge of the tourist attractions and local amenities of the area and they could not be any more accommodating, managing to be constantly and easily available to their guests while not intruding into their holiday plans. They supplied a plethora of paperwork information about local attractions and a conversation with them reveals a great deal more useful information! They are fonts of local knowledge!
Overall this is a brilliant location, with regard to both geographical location and accommodation.
Accommodation is not flash or austentatious and all the better for it in my opinion but is simple, practical, very well equipped and perfect for a quiet break for any couple. We will no doubt visit again in the future.
A wonderful gite in the most stunning countryside - beautiful views, wonderful wine and history all around with the Cathar castles and Carcassonne all close by. We had a wonderful week and wish we could have stayed in our tranquil little hideaway for ever.
The gite was very clean and comfortable and well-equipped, we didn't want for anything. Annie-Claude was a wonderful hostess and was extremely helpful to us.
When Willilam is older it would be great to bring him back to run around the hills...
