Imagine 18 days at a blissfully quiet, chic 800 yr old but fully modern and magnificent place --Montfaucon! As part of a watercolor painting group I immediately understood why my friend was coming back for a second time--my travel savings account is already getting replenished in case I am lucky enough to be able to come back again myself. The owners and Penny and Maeve, our trusted guides in all things French and Limoux, made this stay unforgettable in every possible way. The food was beyond extraordinary and we especially relished the nights when Jean-Francois arrived to create his luscious meals. Limoux is absolutely a terrific place to base a vacation--the perfect blend of village life that comes alive with festivals, concerts, markets virtually every week. It is impossible to be bored in Limoux. Daily excursions to abbeys, castles, sunflower fields, roman ruins, the gorges, Bugarach, the Mediterranean, and even a Uruguayean <sp?> BBQ at a gorgeous winery. This was a unique and unforgettable experience. GO! You'll never look back! ~~~ Sue N.
