Carcassonne house description

Town house in medieval bastide town of Mirepoix situated between Carcassonne, Foix and Toulouse at the foot of the Ariege Pyrenees. Mirepoix is a beautiful preserved bastide town in France. It is approx 45 minutes from Carcassonne airport which has budget flights to the UK, Portugal and Belgium and 60 minutes from Toulouse Airport with national and international flights.

This totally restored luxury town house is a few steps from the magnificent central square of Mirepoix where you can admire the colorful half timbered houses supported on medieval wooden pillars which create a superb covered arcade under which you can enjoy your morning coffee, a drink or a meal at one of the many bars and restaurants.

The spacious house is well appointed and equipped. On the ground floor there is a large fully equipped kitchen dining room with oven, microwave and dishwasher. Everything you could need to dine in style is provided and, as well as central heating, there is an open fire for winter nights. In summer there is a small courtyard garden fully equipped including BBQ. The garden is a wonderful spot to dine, sunbathe or read and seems a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the main square. The sitting room is comfortably furnished and has satellite television and a DVD machine. There is also a large supply of films and TV series on DVD. There is Wi-Fi available.

On the first floor there are two large, well furnished bedrooms. One has a king bed and the other has a twin bed. There is a full bathroom with bath, separate shower and toilet on the first floor ensuite with the masterbedroom and a second full bathroom with shower and toilet ensuite with the other room. The third bedroom with twin beds is on the second floor.Ample towels and linen for all six beds are provided.

The house is nearby the historic centre of Mirepoix so cars have to be parked in the free parking around the house but you can drive to the front of the house for unloading etc. You can also reserve a parking space in the garage of the Hotel Relais Royal (€25.- per day)

Mirepoix is a beautiful, lively, small town whose magnificent Cathedral has the second widest nave in Europe. The hectic Monday morning market covers the main square and the surrounding streets and attracts visitors from miles around. There is also a small produce market on a Thursday. The town is equipped with 2 supermarkets, a large one on the outskirts of town.(Still only a five minute walk from the house)and a smaller one on the edge of the historic centre and a 2 minute walk from the house. There are numerous bakers' and butchers' shops all steps away from the house.

Mirepoix is well supplied with bars for morning coffee or sunset drinks and has at least 10 restaurants within a couple of minutes walk from the house. They range from cafes through family bistros to up market gourmet restaurants. At all of them you will be able to sample the delicious local wines at bargain prices. In the summer there are fairs and events taking place in the square most weekends. Mirepoix is a lively, sociable place.

The countryside around Mirepoix offers limitless opportunities for exploration of the regions Cathare past from the austere magnificence of the castle at Foix and the beautifully restored Carcassone to the Abbey Fontfroid and the many ruins and properties under restoration such as Chateau de Lagarde. Lac Montbel provides swimming and boating opportunities for families and the nearby caves with prehistoric paintings can be visited by appointment. In fact, there is something to interest everyone!

Within easy driving distance are the beaches at Narbonne and cosmopolitan Toulouse. Further a field there is the splendour of the Pyrenees and Andorre and with 2 to 3 hours drive, over the border into Spain, Gerona and Barcelona. In winter the nearest ski resorts at Mont D'Olmes and Ax Les Thermes are under an hour's drive away.

In the warmth of summer or crisp chill of winter you can enjoy this peaceful, undiscovered part of France. Beautiful scenery, places of interest, fine food, inexpensive wines and friendly locals make for a memorable vacation.

During your stay you can use all the facilities of the Hotel Relais & Chateaux Relais Royal. You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner in their restaurant. The use of their swimmingpool is free of charge.
