Montfaucon
Ranked #4 of 13 Limoux B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 28, 2010

Delightful accomodations and hosts. Went on a painting trip and although it was cloudy for almost all of two weeks, our spirits were not dampened. Wonderful gourmet food and a lot of it! Can't beat the French chefs! My introduction to southern France was unforgetable. Felt pampered and well cared for, and I would go again in a minute!

I spent two weeks at Montfaucon and it was my best experience yet. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and clean.

Superior accomodations. Ourstanding staff. Daily guided tours to all neighboring areas with excellent, comfortable transportation, commentary and care. Delectable meals. The owners are most thoughtful of each and every need for their guests. Anyone staying at Montfaucon is lucky indeed. Would recommend this to all groups as well as all single travelers.

My husband and I were part of an art workshop at Montfaucon in Limoux, France. Our room was clean, spacious, and beautifully furnished with a view of the River Aude and Limoux. A breakfast buffet was served daily with cereals, yogurt, eggs, ham slices, cheese, a variety of breads, homemade preserves, coffee, tea and juices. We were taken to several little villages in the area by staff to sketch and paint; the staff members were very knowledgeable about the places we visited. We were treated to several wonderful dinners, some at Montfaucon prepared by local chefs, and some at restaurants in Limoux and surrounding villages.. We also attended a wine tasting. Meals were excellent. We truly enjoyed our stay here and consider it a 5-star experience.

My week long culinary tour was fabulous. We were given the full tour of the Limoux area and the many fabulous sites. The itinerary included a full array of tastes, wine and sites. Our dinners exceeded our expectations - and our hosts and tour guides were wonderful. Thanks for a wonderful week in France!

Walking through the ancient doors afixed with the original lock and knocker overwhelms you as you look up through the center of the most spectacular floating circular staircase. The remarkable renovation of the stone building just stunning and so elegant. Modern amenities like airconditioning, fantastic walk in shower, heated towel racks, and large closets. Our room faced the beautiful River Aude and a view of the terrace below. In the hallway, a mini kitchen for our use, water, sodas, teas and coffees available.Wonderful room with a view of the River Aude and the terrace below.
We participated in the culinary experience allowing us to dine at Montfaucon with a French Chef and a romatic medieval dinner. Penny and Maeve were fun, friendly and knowledgable and drove us to incredible historic sites, assisted us with our terrible French as well.
Morning, with the dining table already set, we enjoyed a freshest fruit breakfast, pastries and fresh bread.
The terrace in the back is lovely to to enjoy a bottle of Blanquette and listen to the birds and river roll by. Best trip to France for us by far.

This fully restored 13th century Chateau is the BEST value for money we have found anywhere in Europe. True 5 star luxury at moderate prices! Situated on the banks of the Aude River, 5 minute walk from the plaza in the charming market town of Limoux. Centrally located less than 2 hours drive to the Mediterranean coast, the tiny nation of Andorra in the Pyrenees. Near medieval castles, dramatic gorges and mountain views, and caves with pehistoric paintings 14,000 years old. Lovely deck at the back of the hotel, overlooking the river.
