Information, Recommendations, Prestigeimmobilien & Ferienresidenzen in Limoux
The cafe scene is dominant in Limoux where food and drink represent the main cultural pastime.
The heart of the town is the place de la République
, a wide square with some fine stone arcading and a number of timber framed houses. Limoux straddles the River Aude and the banks are lined with grand houses, especially on the eastern side, the so-called Petite Ville
Limoux is an attractive place with a wonderful sense of fun. The town likes to party in a most unself-conscious way and for its own pleasure rather than for the sake of tourists. While 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 some of the finest walking country in France.

Golf de Carcassonne
Very close to the historic city of Carcassonne, a world heritage site, this 18 hole, par 71 course is gently undulating, with technical challenges to keep the best players interested, but nothing too daunting for the beginner. The stream that crosses the course, the water obstacles and carefully sited bunkers add spice to the game. The 9th hole has been named by several golf magazines as the most original in Europe. While you're in the area, try the great wines of the Corbières, Fitou or Minervois and the culinary specialities of the Cathar region.
