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.

Mirepoix medieval wood carvings must be seen. I take my guests and visitors to Mirepoix and they are always pleased they went. The Maison de Consuls boasts well preserved wood carvings and huge beams. Sit outside to take coffee or a meal and the gentle but lively buzz of Mirepoix continues around you. Although a bit of a tourist destination... More

this is a beautiful medieval town with fascinating shop houses which are unique. The St Maurice Cathedral is beautiful and unlike other better known cathedrals, there is no crowd, no queue and the place is so serene and peaceful. Worth a visit although it is away from the beaten path, but that's what i like. Buy a guide book from... More

We drove past field after field of vineyards with almost mystical mysterious views of the blue Pyrrannees in the distance with their White snow capped tops, beautiful farmlands ispdeal for open topped motoring in the summer months
