About Michael McMullen
Australian researcher / herbalist living in Sweden with a second house in Limoux. I have travelled extensively on many continents and had good idea of what I wanted in a permanent holiday house but finding it was the challenge. I wanted to be close to a variety of restaurants so there would no need to use a car at night; close enough to the centre of town to buy baguettes and croissants for breakfast without starting the car; a water view; a church tower view; a house with lots of French character, close to the nature in a place where the French traditions remain strong. Plus it had be an area where I could go biking and walking. My Swedish wife wanted a garden with rosemary, lavender and mature fig trees. Even demanding dreams do come true. We got it ALL, even TWO mature fig trees!
Michael McMullen purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Michael McMullen chose Carcassonne
We just fell in love with this area and got The Dream House with the Dream Location. Limoux is a town with a thousand years of history, in an area that was even frequented by the Romans. Limoux offers a base to explore on foot/bike/car the stunning landscape of the Pyrenean foothills. The Aude valley, the home of bubbly, is an area of grand and living traditions. The quality of the farmer markets is superb with organic cheeses, fruits, vegetables, eggs, meats and wines. PLUS very nice local people who are good at sign language when your tourist French fails you. Car vs No Car: Only 20 min. by car from Carcassonne airport or you can catch the train - we are only five 5 minutes from the railway station and 15 min. from the car rental. By car- Toulouse airport 76 min. Girona airport 161 min.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment have its own private garden with a fig tree, herbs such as lavender, rosemary and sage, seasonal flowers and a BBQ. Looks out over the river Aude and have views of the Pont-Neuf de Limoux and the Church of St Martin- both have 700+ years old! A 5 minute walk over the bridge, if you don't stop to feed the ducks, and you are in the main square. In the Classic France apartment the dining table, chairs and sideboard are from the 1800s while beds and sofas are modern. The apartment is fully equipped kitchen. Whether you are staying just a few nights or using it as a base for a month, the apartment is designed to support you AND THE WIFI WORKS - HAPPY STREAMING

Relaxing atmosphere in beautiful surroundings
Having arrived in Limoux after a long drive south, we were very impressed with the property as it exceeded our expectations. The property is tastefully decorated and exudes an atmosphere of calm and tranquility. Having unpacked, we retreated to the garden and enjoyed a glass of wine, listening to the river flowing by. The garden is beautiful and was used most evenings either for drinks of for a BBQ.
Limoux itself was restful but with enough to do to keep us busy for the week we were there.
The week flew by and the only problem we had was that we couldn't stay for longer and given the chance, we would return again.
Beautiful apartments in the perfect location
Rented out both apartments for a long weekend with friends and had a great stay here. A connecting door can be opened when renting together. Property is enormous, has bags of character, clean and well equipped. Bedrooms and bathrooms all very pretty and the classic France bedrooms have lovely views. Garden also delightful and there is an enormous garage which is handy as the street is narrow. Good location for wandering into town too. Owner very helpful and returned deposit promptly. We did have some problems with emails getting through. Hopefully these are now resolved but I would recommend taking the phone number in case of problems. We couldn't find any instructions for heating etc which might be a useful addition but this was minor - otherwise all was really fantastic. Highly recommended.
We are so glad that our first full rental (both apartments simultaneously) was a success. As noted above, our guests rented both apartments giving them access to over 250 square meters of floor space with 4 double bedrooms. On the improvements side: we have fixed our email problems and are adding heating instructions to guest folder!
