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

First visit on market day, lovely atmosphere of both food, clothes and local crafts. Wemt a second time in order to be able to see the beautiful medieval buildings.The sun flowers in the fields on the journey there were spectacular.

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

Mirepoix is a lovely medieval town, located conveniently between the Canal du Midi and the Pyrenees. We spent a week there and wished it could have been longer as there is so much to do in the area, whether it be visits to the Cathar citadels, walks up the hills, wine-tasting, visits to the caves or just soaking up the...

This part of France - Cathar country is full of wonderful sights and small villages. From the stunning turrets of Querebus to small fortified towns like Mirepoix. Come on market day and the medieval square is full of market stalls from clothes to food, from dancers to knife sharpeners. Mirepoix is very manageable and charming. Enter to the medieval quarter...
