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

We stayed in Mirepoix recently for the third time. Both previous times we stayed on a Sunday night before the market on Monday morning. I have been told that it is the oldest market in France. Certainly it is a very large and spectacular one. The highlight is the large squares with fantastic broad timbered arcades which support, on very... More

Small but interesting town with very old buildings in the town square. Plenty of cafe/restaurant bars at reasonable prices where you can settle down with a cold one and watch all the entertainment of the summer Fête events or wander around the evening market. Would gladly visit again.

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
