A stylish characterful apartment with the most beautiful garden and a fabulous riverside location
Anna and Michael have created the most beautiful home and a stunning garden overlooking the river and church. This was our second visit for the annual Toques et Clochers wine festival which is great fun. They have thought of everything for a great holiday and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Highly recommended.
Amazing house with fabulous garden beside river and very central.
We were in awe at the quality of accommodation in this exceptional property. From the street it looks quite an ordinary house but once you climb the stairs the grandeur of the apartment with its high ceilings, original floor tiles and antique furnishings takes your breath away. A very modern and extremely well furnished kitchen with its range cooker and large fridge/freezer makes it very attractive to cook meals indoors instead of going out to restaurants.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully furnished and comfortable with everything you could wish for to give a restful night’s sleep.
All the windows take in the afternoon sun and overlook the spectacular gardens laid out with flowers, shrubs, herbs and even fruit trees. There are also a few seating areas as well as a bbq area. This is a peaceful haven to sit in, listen to the birds and hear the river flowing beyond the outer wall.
All of this is only surpassed by the hosts, Anna and Michael, who are extremely welcoming and made us feel it was a privilege to stay with them. Their warmth and hospitality as well as their communication with us made our stay here very memorable. They recommended lovely places to visit in the mountains which we would never have found on our own.
We would love to have stayed here longer and certainly hope to return at some later stage. We can not recommend this property and it’s hosts highly enough.
Beautifully located apartment, well appointed
Anna and Michael are great hosts and have thought of everything to make their guests happy. Lots of considerate touches in a stylishly furnished apartment with a lovely garden.
Only a few minutes walk to Limoux town centre with a great view of the river and church opposite, lit up at night.
Plenty of places to visit within an hour's drive. Altogether highly recommended
Cyclists staying in Limoux, Languedoc
Anna & Michael were very welcoming & sociable (we visited a local wine bar together). There home was very well kept, with a great kitchen for home cooking (double hob/oven, huge fridge freezer, dishwasher etc.) The apartment has its own balcony and access to a private section of the garden with a bbq area, sun lounges & terrace overlooking the Aude. The apartment is located a 5 minute walk around from Limoux Central Station for those who wish to use the rail network.
As cyclists, Limoux was the perfect base. The town itself has plenty of grocery stores, butchers, fish mongers, mini markets etc. and a decent selection of brassieres and restaurants.
From Limoux we cycled through the valleys eastwards and visited a number of little villages, from Bugarach, Massac, Tornissan, Fontjouncouse and the scenery was beautiful. The terrain can be quite hilly depending on you're chosen route with maximum altitudes of over 800m. Nonetheless, this part of the world is still relatively untouched and the roads/villages were all cycle & hiking friendly.
Would definitely return to Anna & Michael's apartment.
A beautiful large apartment with a wonderful garden. Terrific location and very helpful hosts
Y828JK 7-14 Oct 2017.Riverside Apt. Limoux. Roy Fletcher.
Delightful location adjacent to and overlooking the river Aude. Spacious, well equipped accommodation with beautiful gardens and above all friendly hospitable and gracious hosts in Anna and Michael who made our stay even more enjoyable.
Limoux just 18k south of Carcassonne is a pleasant town with a nice square on the river Aude. It has major supermarkets in Leclerc and Lidl on its outskirts providing all basic needs is and is ideal for exploring the surrounding area with plenty of vineyards available to sample its excellent regional wine. A must visit is the still working Abbey at Lagrasse although, the drive over the mountain road can be interesting albeit a little hairy. The old walled city at Carcassonne is magical and a great way to spend an afternoon as is the Abbey at Rennes-le-Chateaux complete with its myth and legends. A visit to the Medieval town of Foix near Andorra provides a great opportunity of appreciating the charming and diverse countryside. Beziers and the lovely old cities of Narbonne and Perpignan are well worth the 1.5 hr drive. Motorway is easily accessible at Carcassonne.
Find time to go the short distance to ‘Alet les Bain’ but take a towel and enjoy bathing your feet in the thermal spa as the locals fill the water bottles.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable holiday with plenty to see and do. Some beautiful places and some not so memorable. We look forward to our next visit.
Limoux is a great place to explore the Aude valley. Lots of activities and a big history - Cathars. Our accommadation provides a comfortable base for recharging your batteries. The short walk to the square means that in the evening it is possible to come home exhausted, park the car, and then pop over the square for a meal and a drink - no need to drive home! Or in the morning, walk across the bridge into town, have a coffee, buy freshly baked baguettes and croissants and walk home again. NO parking / NO car!
