Music Festivals abound!
So, September is nearly with us and a new season for me in my French adventure. It seems that every other day there is live music to listen to, here in Limoux. The local Mairie arranges music Wednesday, Saturday and Sundays, and on the days in between, the restaurants and bars arrange their own too. The type of music varies wildly, but can always guarantee to put a smile on your face and get your foot tapping! And you can be assured of conversations starting up with your neighbours in the bars with regards to the quality….. and dancing is positively encouraged. We’ve had great nights this summer. From 5th September to 12th there are concerts everyday in Limoux, varying locations but all within walking distance from La Maison Blanche.
Autumn and Winter in Limoux
As the traditional holiday season comes to a close around Europe, it seems Limoux is very keen for guests to still be entertained. Here is the local website with details of “animations” (things to do) www.limoux.fr but the festivals continue. In addition to the musical events, there is a Fois Gras festival, and the whole of December is devoted to Christmas markets, there has been an ice rink installed in the Place in former years. I’ll keep you posted on that one! The weather promises to be lovely in October through to November, and the winter months clear, bright and cold.
And the final word has to be about the vineyards. I have had fabulous lunches here : www.domainegayda.com. The food is wonderful and the wine is truly sublime. I would like to say that I am helping the local vineyards with the Vendanges…. (grape harvesting) but that would be a big pants lie….. I think my strengths lie with the end product…
A tout a l’heure mes amis xx
