The house is located in a village called Arzens and is situated approximately 5km from Carcassonne. Arzens is typical of a sleepy circular village of the region where the pace of life is very slow but you may find yourself here when there is a local fete and then there will be dancing in the streets literally. Carcassonne offers all the amenities you would expect from a large city including a Saturday market in the main square. Close by is Limoux which is renowned for its sparkling wine Blanquette de Limoux said to pre-date champagne. It has to be tried and where better than at the summer night market held every week in July and August. Market day is every Friday in Limoux and Monday in the medieval and historic square of Mirepoix. Nearby, Carcassonne golf course is a must for all golf enthusiasts, the course is excellent and there are four sets of clubs available at the house to use. Booking advised contact details for the course can be given by email.
We are thrilled that La Tour de France is passing through the area on 12th and 13th July 2016, so this property will be ideal for cycling enthusiasts. Also playing in Toulouse is the Welsh football team as part of Euro 2016 - only 1.5 hours’ drive away. The organisers of Carcassonne Music Festival are beginning to announce the acts playing in July 2016. This property is ideally suited for all these events.
This is a beautiful region of France where vineyards and sunflowers abound. Wine tasting is everywhere including in the village itself. The Pyrenees are visible from many places locally and easily reached. The location is wonderful too for visiting the many Cathar castles and of course the fairytale ancient cité of old Carcassonne is a must for young and old alike. The “pink” city of Toulouse makes a great day out and of course the Mediterranean beaches are little over an hour away and only 2 hours to the borders with Spain.
