Apartment Blanquette | France | Languedoc-Roussillon | Limoux



Flexible changeover

A little jewel of an apartment designed and beautifully presented for 2 + baby or small child. It is just a few steps away from the main square, shops, museums and cafe-bars in Limoux, and in an ideal spot for exploring the delights of Languedoc Roussillon, including Carcassonne. Romantic, stylish and comfortable and very well equipped! WiFi! No car necessary if you don't wish to hire one. Limoux is just 25 minutes drive from Carcassonne.


In a charming garden location on a quiet road near the River Aude and a very short stroll from the main square, you'll find this delightful apartment with a private entrance.

The apartment is on on the one level, with no-one living above. It is adjacent to APARTMENT PALAIS also featured on our website.

You simply walk through a gate into a lovely garden, a part of which is available as an outdoor dining and relaxing space for the guests in this apartment. The other larger part of the garden is owned and beautifully kept by a charming, friendly Limoux resident.

It has a very pleasant light and bright living/dining area, a well-equipped modern kitchen, a lovely en-suite bathroom and a double bedroom. It is stylishly decorated and furnished to a very high standard.

The property is in a very pleasant, generally quieter area of the town and just a short walk from the central square where the events for Limoux's Carnival (Fecos) and the Toques and Clochers ceremonies take place. Toques et Clochers begins on 23rd March 2013.

Whilst absolutely ideal for a couple, a travel cot or Z-bed can be provided for a baby or a small child under 6 years of age.

Limoux is an ancient, pretty, market town on the banks of the River Aude, in the department of Aude in Languedoc Roussillon and is about 25 minutes drive from Carcassonne Airport. It has everything you would imagine a southern French market town would have: a lovely main square with a big fountain, an interesting galleried arcade of shops, cafe-bars and restaurants, a Friday market, museums and concerts and events almost all year round.

The Carnival of Limoux, known locally as the 'Fecos de Limoux', is a yearly event. It usually starts in early January and ends in mid April each year. Most of the carnival events are on Saturdays and Sundays and take place in the main square - they are very colourful and interesting with all the participants in bright local costumes. Additionally, there are other events and concerts right through the summer months e.g. Toques et Clochers..

Limoux is famous for Blanquette de Limoux, a delicious sparkling white wine, after which this apartment is named - be sure to visit a winery and try it on your next visit! It's delicious.

Sports Facilities: include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, walking, cycling, kayaking, fishing, and in the winter months Limoux is just over 1 hour's drive from the nearest ski resort.

Mirepoix is one of the most stunning medieval bastide towns we have ever seen and makes for a lovely day out. For lovers of the mountains you can visit the Pyrenees and Andorra to the South and the Black Mountains to the North. For those of you interested in the history of the Cathars, there are several Cathar Castles to visit as well as Rennes-le-Chateau for those of you interested in the Holy Grail stories. The Mediterranan beaches are approximately a 90 minute drive away.
