South West France, Limoux, close to the Pyrénées

I have a lovely apartment in an old stone house overlooking the river Aude, next to the Pont Neuf, which is perfect for a relaxing holiday, especially as a 2 minute walk takes you to the main square with its shops, cafés and restaurants.

A car is not essential as the station is only a five minute walk, and the local train runs from Quillan to Carcassonne, with plenty of stops to see more of the countryside, small towns and villages. Travelling by car you will find that Limoux is central to many places of interest, from historic castles to water sports, arts and music.

I have a comfortable lounge with balcony, giving stunning views of the church and Pont Neuf over the river Aude. The two large double bedrooms provide plenty of space for 4 people, sharing a modern bathroom and separate washroom. The kitchen / dining room also overlooks the river, and is well equipped with everything you could need, including a separate utility room with washing machine and dryer.

Wifi here is excellent. There is free parking below the house, next to river. Also a ground floor room for any large items, use of my new bicycle, or hire your own in the summer, as there are many beautiful rides through the vineyards, with minimal traffic and great views.

Please note that my apartment is on the 1st floor, so not suitable for those who find stairs difficult to manage.

About the location

This is a beautiful region of France, famous for its Blanquette de Limoux and Languedoc wines. La Cité in Carcassonne is amazing and around the area are ancient Cathar castles, beautiful walks, thermal lakes, tumbling rivers, gorges, and stunning scenery. You can also visit the mysterious Rennes le Chateau, take a trip on the Canal du Midi... the list is endless.

I welcome home swaps at any time of the year, with spring and autumn warm and sunny, hot summers and few tourists, this really is an undiscovered region, with surprisingly good festivals of music and art, and local markets overflowing with fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables, local honey, and tasty cheeses.
