    Lovely place where you can learn how bubble wines were invented, are made and taste several types of there own products. Interesting tour around there domaine ending in the tasting of blanquette and cremand of the house. Try to resist not buying a few bottles...
    We could not and will drive home with several types of the heavenly drinks they make.

    If you want to visit a fantastic cathedral in the middle of the barren wilderness, then this is your place. Now, admittedly it isn't quite a cathedral and it isn't quite in the middle of nowhere....but when you approach on foot, walk around the gardens and step inside...you will be forgiven for thinking this. It is a breathtaking church dating back centuries and has seating for around 500 people. It has a few shrines and choirs dedicated to various saints...and the first one I have ever seen for St Joseph. He is so often overlooked in Christianity for some reason...but without him there would be no Jesus...so is nice to see a shrine to him. There is a holy relic here too, although I am not sure what it is, looks gross haha!
    The building is magnificent and its location high above the Aude valley is spectacular. I am not remotely religious myself but there is a nice isolated and spiritual feel to this place. If you are in the region then you definitely have to pop in. It is about a 20-30 minute walk up the Aude from Limoux...

    This museum of 'Automatons' or mechanical moving figures, sometimes called 'robotmuseum' in tourism info this does not do this museum justice. The owners - propriators who built all the figures themselves are proud to show you round their workshop and share the secrets of how these characters and scenes are created and set in motion. The collection is quite fascinating. We were pleasantly surprised.

    If you are into pianos and piano music then you will love this place. A fascinating world in a fascinating building. If, however, like me you are not into pianos then you will still find this place a great attraction. A museum that is run by people with passion is always a winning museum.

    This lovely little gallery was a wonderful surprise. It holds a number of paintings of the French painter Marie Petiet together with some remarkable examples of a variety of 19th century French artists.
    Petiet (who exhibited under her married name as Marie Dujardin-Beaumetz) was a revelation to me. I would absolutely recommend a visit. In August 2020 we were only charged 3 euros each.
    There are only a few rooms but some of them are jam packed with paintings (and a few sculptures). I suggest you would need an hour for a visit but the pieces justify a longer visit.
    They have a couple of tiny desks with coloured felt tips for children.

    This is an old family vineyard with a recently opened /built tasting rooms. We arrived just as they should have been closing for lunch, but we were made very welcome, nothing was troo much trouble. We very much like blanquette and have sampled many , the ones from this vineyard deserves all the public accolades which it has received. Not only this but is a big part of,and serves the local community. What brilliant wines!

    Very similar in style to other Catholic churches with chapels for saints around the inside.

    Noticed a few water leaks inside from the recent rains which was disappointing.

    If you need some space to find yourself in Limoux I can recommend.

    Limous is said to be the home of sparkling wine so why not try it. Antach is one of two domains we visited. We were well received and treated to an exceptional range of sparkling wines. The well informed lady hosting us even opened several new bottles for us to try. brilliant. Try it.

    Despite the fact that we checked with the Tourism Office about how to get to this museum, we found it only with some measure of difficulty. It is along a rather nondescript stretch of the Aude River not far from the central square. We pushed the door open, and no one was there. Also, it had a very musty and unwelcoming smell. If you are interested in printing history, and have more luck than we did, you might enjoy it. There seemed to be several rooms with old printing machines and it looked like they demonstrated the machines and maybe let visitors try their hand at printing something to take home, but since we never did find anyone there, we just left because we felt weird being there by ourselves.

    I am a great admirer of this amazing wine shop. As we cannot go to France right now I ordered wines for delivery to the U.K.
    If you spend 10 euros a bottle the delivery is free.
    The wine left Limoux on Tuesday and was delivered to London on Thursday. No supplier in the UK can match this! What’s more the wines are fabulous!

    Nice place to visit and learn about the art of making sparkling wine. Free museum adjacent to shop with lots of exhibits including a chance to see, but not enter, their cave.

    15 are needed for tour of cave. Need to book in advance and pay €10. You do get a free bottle. Not sure if tours are offered over the summer for ad hoc visitors but certainly not in October.

    Sparkling wines in the shop are a more expensive than what I've bought from the region in the supermarket but on tasting they have quality.

    We booked the 10km two for a family of 11.
    Although the trip was supposed to start at 11 we didn't get going until later, but everything was well organised and good equipment was provided. The river was low, being the middle of summer, which made some of the 'rapids' almost impassable without getting out. However several where still quite exciting for us, with ages from 9 to 72 and no real experience.

    My only criticism is that the 10km trip took us 5 hours, not the 2-3 advertised, due to the number of times we had to stop for one or more of us to get unstuck in the rapids. In the end we were exhausted but had a good time.
