Built in Napoleon’s time, the ladies of the day would have been sweeping down its spiral stone staircase in low cut, full length empire line gowns and speaking in the local language of Occitan. The house benefits from a beautiful courtyard at the rear, where guests can socialise or dine outside.
Limoux has many activities right on the doorstep. Weekly markets, bars, shops, restaurants, wine tasting, walking, cycling, yoga, kayak and a local train service – A car is not essential, the owners arrange regular outings for guests, with transport included. If you do have your own transport, it’s a great location to explore Spain, the coast and the mountains. We are dog friendly. Furry friends are most welcome. We specialise in English speaking guests, but have French TV for those that want to hone their language skills… We can also help with visa paperwork and general advice about everything from getting a local doctor, to buying a house!
We host occasional courtyard dinners, guests can bring along their favourite dishes to try with other guests and we have a feast! All are welcome, it’s an ideal location for solo travellers who would like to meet others and join in on trips out or simply enjoy meeting other guests from around the world in the courtyard one evening.
We offer introduction to Yoga sessions, and guided walking for health or sightseeing around town or further afield.
Limoux is the birthplace of ‘Le Bulle‘ – the bubble. The local vineyards are bursting with the white grapes that are used to make Blanquette De Limoux. If you prefer red wine, you will not go without, the delicious local Merlot is full of sunshine flavours and is often served chilled to combat the extreme summer temperatures.
All the accommodation and activities in Maison Blanche are geared towards year round living. We have double glazing, insulation, acoustic insulation and efficient heating.
