Mirepoix has a wonderful village square lined with a wide range of shops and restaurants. The architecture is unusual and colorful. We were there during a Village Fête which added to the fun. The village is also well located for traveling to other places in the area as it is only 1 hour from Toulouse and just over an hour... More

Mirepoix is located between Foix & Carcassonne. It is a medieval dream! Head to the Place des Couverts for an incredible site of wooden beamed buildings, beautifully maintained, with wooden engravings and structures. The tops overhang the floors beneath and these struts are often engraved sculptures into the wood. The buildings are colourful, heraldic and quite stunning. We sat in... More

For all those enjoying a holiday in this part of France I can't recommend Mirepoix enough. Beautiful Medieval buildings plus the wooden carvings on the Maison des Consuls in the square are amazing. If you are self catering the produce in the market is fantastic. Plenty of good cafes and restaurants too.Market held each Monday 9 til 1

Stumbled upon Mirepoix by chance en route to Marseille. Obviously a tourist haven but understandably so. We visited early in the spring so this was a good time; no crowds. Many places to sit in the sun and soak up the atmosphere and admire the beautifully preserved buildings which other reviewers have quite rightly highlighted. On our list of places... More

Mirepoix has one of the biggest markets in the region and is held on a Saturday. The food selection is awesome with so much local produce and a great range of French cheeses and breads. There is also many stalls with clothes and plants and flowers. It covers the whole square and spills out into the surrounding street. There is... More

Stayed two nights in Mirepoix. In order to tour the area. The main square near the cathedral is delightful. The buildings all have covered galleries with pretty shops and cafes. It is a photographer's dream. Do not miss The Consuls' House. The centre of the town is small, so easy to walk round. The cathedral is also worth a visit.... More

We visited twice during our holiday - firstly as a couple on a bank holiday when there was a fantastic market, and then we brought our teenage children to see the fantastic wooden buildings around the square. Shop and café owners were friendly and we had a great time relaxing with coffee and watching the world go by.

Visited on a Sunday when a monthly flea market was on so it was particularly busy. Coming from England we have obviously seen medieval before but the central square and its covered galleries was extremely beautiful. Lots of flags and colour around which prompted my partner to think he was on a Disney set! Worth a visit.

Last Sunday we went to this town in search of late afternoon luch but we got more than we bargained for! The drive from Limoux was really nice and pleasant with stunning views which is by no mean exclusive to this corner of Ladgudoc region and some beautiful sunflower fields to go through. The medieval square is one of the... More
