Additional Location 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 â€śFecosâ€ť, 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), 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 â€śdegustationâ€ť (wine tasting).There are approximately 2,800 producers in Languedoc-Roussillon, making it one of the worldâ€™s largest wine-producing regions and between them they make around two billion bottles of wine a year!
Sports Facilities: include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, walking, cycling, kayaking, fishing, and golfing. For winter sports, skiing and snowboarding, Limoux is just over 1 hours drive from the nearest ski resort.
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.

What Past Guests Are Saying
We have been to France several times and decided to stay in Limoux as a way to save some money. It was well worth it. The town is not terribly impressive on first glance and can appear somewhat run down, but it grew on us. After 2 days we loved it. The people were very nice, the food in the two restaurants we ate at on the square were terrific and access to nearby sights a delightful drive. The flat was perfect; a super shower, comfortable furnishings and only 1 block from the main square. You do have to park a few blocks away (it's free), but can drive to the flat to load/unload items. The hosts were great; very friendly and english-speaking. They've done a great job making the flat comfortable!!! Whatever you do, find the little out of the way place (on a side street) to buy Blanquette de Limoux Demi-Sec (Emile Satge)...Wow. This is the best tasting champagne you'll ever have...and it's ridiculously inexpensive. A wonderfully authentic and comfortable experience!!

Everything You Could Need :)
We chose this apartment as it was described as being within walking distance of all amenities - and it was perfectly situated close to shops and to the town square. All needs within the apartment were met, providing all the comforts of home ! A great location in which to explore the area and with Carcassonne only 20 minutes away, it was perfect to explore all day, then return to Limoux for a more relaxing atmosphere and a "coming home" feel. Thanks andy and annie and we will definitely see you again soon. :)
una vacanza fantastica
E' un appartamento tranquillo, molto pulito, e a due passi dai ristoranti, le piccole botteghe, il mercato e il fiume. Limoux poi e' un punto perfetto per visitare sia la costa che la parte montana della zona. L'appartamento e' stato ristrutturato di recente, percio' la cucina, il bagno, le imposte, la camera, era tutto nuovissimo! I proprietari sono delle persone squisite e tra l'altro parlano inglese. Ci hanno potuto consigliare i luoghi da non perdere e i vini doc della zona. Incantevole, non vediamo l'ora di ritornare per il carnevale!
Glad I found this place
Studio Barberouge was clean and comfortable with everything we needed and was the perfect place for us as a couple with a young son to spend the weekend.
Limoux is a beautiful little French market town with a main square, lovely old buildings and quiet riverside, liked the easy driving distance of Carcassonne and Mirepoix.
We had a wonderful weekend and will definitely go back next year!
happy from Canada
great , cozy convenient, we loved it!
We had a wonderful time at studio barberouge. they had everything we needed to make our stay relaxing and convenient. We loved to cook for ourselves most nights which was easy because all the amenities were there. we will definitely come back.
