About Michael McMullen

Australian researcher / herbalist living in Sweden with a second house in Limoux. I have travelled extensively on many continents and had good idea of what I wanted in a permanent holiday house but finding it was the challenge. I wanted to be close to a variety of restaurants so there would no need to use a car at night; close enough to the centre of town to buy baguettes and croissants for breakfast without starting the car; a water view; a church tower view; a house with lots of French character, close to the nature in a place where the French traditions remain strong. Plus it had be an area where I could go biking and walking. My Swedish wife wanted a garden with rosemary, lavender and mature fig trees. Even demanding dreams do come true. We got it ALL, even TWO mature fig trees!

Michael McMullen purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Michael McMullen chose Limoux

We just fell in love with this area and got The Dream House with the Dream Location.

Limoux is a town with a thousand years of history, in an area that was even frequented by the Romans. Limoux offers a base to explore on foot/bike/car the stunning landscape of the Pyrenean foothills. The Aude valley, the home of bubbly, is an area of grand and living traditions. The quality of the farmer markets is superb with organic cheeses, fruits, vegetables, eggs, meats and wines. PLUS very nice local people who are good at sign language when your tourist French fails you. Car vs No Car: Only 20 min. by car from Carcassonne airport or you can catch the train - we are only five 5 minutes from the railway station and 15 min. from the car rental. By car- Toulouse airport 76 min. Girona airport 161 min.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment have its own private garden with a fig tree, herbs such as lavender, rosemary and sage, seasonal flowers and a BBQ. Looks out over the river Aude and have views of the Pont-Neuf de Limoux and the Church of St Martin- both have 700+ years old!

A 5 minute walk over the bridge, if you don't stop to feed the ducks, and you are in the main square. In the Classic France apartment the dining table, chairs and sideboard are from the 1800s while beds and sofas are modern. The apartment is fully equipped kitchen.

Whether you are staying just a few nights or using it as a base for a month, the apartment is designed to support you

Y828JK 7-14 Oct 2017.Riverside Apt. Limoux. Roy Fletcher.

  • 5 of 5

Delightful location adjacent to and overlooking the river Aude. Spacious, well equipped accommodation with beautiful gardens and above all friendly hospitable and gracious hosts in Anna and Michael who made our stay even more enjoyable.

Limoux just 18k south of Carcassonne is a pleasant town with a nice square on the river Aude. It has major supermarkets in Leclerc and Lidl on its outskirts providing all basic needs is and is ideal for exploring the surrounding area with plenty of vineyards available to sample its excellent regional wine. A must visit is the still working Abbey at Lagrasse although, the drive over the mountain road can be interesting albeit a little hairy. The old walled city at Carcassonne is magical and a great way to spend an afternoon as is the Abbey at Rennes-le-Chateaux complete with its myth and legends. A visit to the Medieval town of Foix near Andorra provides a great opportunity of appreciating the charming and diverse countryside. Beziers and the lovely old cities of Narbonne and Perpignan are well worth the 1.5 hr drive. Motorway is easily accessible at Carcassonne.

Find time to go the short distance to ‘Alet les Bain’ but take a towel and enjoy bathing your feet in the thermal spa as the locals fill the water bottles.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable holiday with plenty to see and do. Some beautiful places and some not so memorable. We look forward to our next visit.

A spacious apartment with a lovely riverside view.

  • 5 of 5

This was a family holiday with our teenage children. Everyone was very impressed with the beautiful apartment. From a plain door in a very plain street it is like entering another world. The apartment has high ceilings with very welcome fans in living room, kitchen and bedrooms. This was so useful in the 30-35c July heat. The kitchen and living room has been tastefully furnished in a very traditional French style. Bedrooms are large and have a lovely view over the garden and river. From the living room there is an airy balcony with stairs down to the garden. I have left the garden till last because it is the show piece of the property. Designed by the botanist owner this garden is a riot of colour and fragrances and has to be experienced as words are not enough. We enjoyed having our evening meal in the garden so much that no one wanted to eat out. This garden attracts bees and birds and is an absolute joy. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this part of France and would highly recommend this apartment.

Beautiful Apartment & Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 5 nights in May and was very impressed with the high standard of the accommodation, the wonderful views of the garden and river and the close proximity to the village (5 minutes walk)

The apartment is huge, spotlessly clean and has every amenity that you could wish for.

The train station is 5 minutes walk and an easy way to visit Carcassone.

Anna & MIchael are wonderful hosts and I highly recommend Limoux Riverside apartments for a relaxing stay in a beautiful French village.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Anna have created an extraordinary environment overlooking the river, the garden, the church and the everyday life of this wonderful working town in a wine country setting. Every necessary amenity is available in the apartment which has a lovely deck for being outside.

Michael and Anna are very helpful in every way, providing suggestions for towns to visit as well as where to shop.

romantic

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place, clean and great service. The property was overwhelming, with a beautiful garden.

It´s a nice place to go and relax and find peace. The nature is right there, just open the door and start to walk beside the river.

It´s easy to get around, one can go by train to places close by.

But if you have a car you can go even further and seek the adventure in the mountain

I can really recommend this place.

Limoux have a small center with a few restaurants that serves clams, salmon and salads and great vine.
