Sport

There are many sports catered for within the area.  Here we have listed some of the more popular ones and included links to sites that contain further details.

Rugby Trips

This area is renowned for its rugby heritage and it is home to both codes.   Rugby Union is well served and for the Heineken Cup we are within easy driving distance from:

Castres - 1 hour 30 minutes away from Limoux

Perpignan - 1 hour 20 minutes away from Limoux

Toulouse - 1 hour 20 minutes away from Limoux

Why not join us for a weekend of rugby!  For details of all of the key fixtures visit http://frenchrugbyclub.com/ .  Why not arrange a weekend of rugby and we will drive you to and from your destination.  Many other towns such as Carcassonne offer rugby union to a fairly high standard.

In the town of Limoux they play Rugby League, but other towns offering rugby league  within 1 1/2 hours Perpignan is the home of The Catalans Super League team.  Ideal if you want to plan a short summer break linked to some sport.

Golf - Carcassonne

Located at the foot of the medieval city since 1988, the Carcassonne Golf offers its fans a superb panoramic view over the Pyrenees and the Montagne Noire. His career with 18 holes every single married a perfectly natural configuration of the site. It spans nearly 5 800 m wide fairways and slightly undulating, making it accessible to all, twelve months per year.

The tranquility of the place, barely disturbed by the passage of some curious squirrels and rabbits, should not forget that this Par 71 is defended by quite fast greens and some spectacular holes, like the famous No 1 is rising before the player as Annapurna, or the impressive No. 9 Par 3 challenging golfers with its descent of 110 meters.

The practice area is open every day of the week; it has 15 seats of which 9 are covered, and a grass driving range, putting green.

White River Rafting, Canoeing, Kayaking and Hydrofoil

With massive canyons and excellent rivers sourced from the heart of the Pyrenees this area offers some great white water for all of the family.  Couple this to being able to explore canyons with abseiling and waterfall jumps there is something for everyone.  In Alet 600 m from our Chambre D’hôte we have an excellent white river club - all of whom speak English.  For a taste of the activities view http://www.youtube.com/watchùv=qltn-4J3k9A

Skiing

The Pyrenees is quite undiscovered with regard to skiing and yet it offers some great places, all within easy reach of our properties and all geared to families.  Whilst this is not the Alps or Rockies we were surprised at the levels offered - although we are only 2 hours from Andorra.  As I am writing this entry on the 9th January we have just had 17 cm of snow in our village!  2008 - 09 was an excellent year for snow and 2010 looks like being another!

There are a 4 number main ski resorts within easy reach.  We have listed them all with links to the relevant sites.  Why not try us for a ski weekend with the family in January, February or March 2011.

Football

 If you fancy a trip to watch some football then Toulouse football club is 1 hour 20 minutes away.

Fishing

The fishable waters in the region are exceptionally diverse, ranging from small mountain streams to fast-flowing rivers to high altitude lakes accessible only by foot. Some of the lakes and rivers are stocked, but those higher up contain mainly wild, brown trout. Fishing is popular among local inhabitants, but has not become a tourist industry.

The fishing season runs from early March to mid September for most waters. A fishing permit for the entire season in all waters costs 27€ plus you have to become a member of the fishing federation of the department. A special 2-week tourist fishing permit is available and is valid between June 1st and September 30th.
