A quiet place with few tourists while we were there. The shuttered houses are perched atop old timber beams- many sagging and crumbling it is amazing the houses are still being supported after all this time! Not a great deal to do here other than to wonder around and marvel at how time seems to have stopped still here- nice... More

Beautiful town with unusual houses and old beams structures. Worth the trip and visit the market days. Parking was free but took a while finding a spot on market day while driving around the center but eventually you will find one if you go closer to end of the market time around noon or so when many shoppers leave at...

The reason to visit is the market square, which I'd swear is the model for the town in the opening scene of Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. If you're looking to enjoy an endless variety of food, browse stalls with every style of clothing and jewelry, have your knives sharpened the traditional way or pick up a goat and a... More

Beautiful town with great food market in square. Fish van has a good variety of fresh fish and when we enquired about a crab dish the lady gave us one to try for free! Great goats cheese stall with a very friendly owner who let us taste all of his cheeses. Fruit and vegetables in abundance! There are plenty of... More

Someone had suggested that we make this visit as it was only a short distance from where we were staying in Saverdun. Once more the journey there was easy travelling along country lanes which are well sign posted. Parking was again free just along the outer walls of this very old town. I don't think I have ever seen anywhere... More

Loved Mirepoix, the quaint beamed houses and shops, the Monday Market! It's massive and lots of different stalls good bargains to have re clothes, bags even chickens! Go when it's not Market day and the charming square full of tables and chairs from the bar/restaurants & cafe's. Good tourist information office too.

Mirepoix old town is a small but truly beautiful and very well preserved medieval town with a magnificent old cathedral. It is a "must" to visit if you're in the area. Personally, I prefer it to Carcassonne, which is over-commercialised, certainly not what it appears and is full of tourist tat - I'm not a fan. In contrast, Mirepoix is... More

Mirepoix is worth a visit for a step back in time! Quaint French town packed with restaurants set mainly around the central square. Try visiting on Mondays when the market is on for a lively atmosphere just note that parking is difficult! Look on here for restaurant tips as some are hit and miss!

Mirepoix is worth a visit on a Monday to see the market. It's also worth a return visit when it is not so crowded, as it will then be possible to fully appreciate the half-timbered houses with their over-sailing.
