The Area

The square in Mirepoix
The village of Dun lies in la Vallée du Douctouyre, a north-south valley in the foot-hills of the Pyrenees.  There is a post-office and every day except Sundays, a van selling all sorts of food- bread, milk, cheese, fruit and vegetables, fresh and preserved meats, puddings- travels round the village with its horn blowing to signal it’s arrival.
Dining room at Relais Royale
Every Friday evening from 4-6pm, at the end of the drive, there is a fresh organic vegetable stall selling the produce of a local grower. There are supermarkets in Mirepoix (Super U) and Pamiers (Carrefour and LeClerc). The market in Mirepoix is on Monday morning and is well worth a visit- for fresh foods, local produce and the usual clothes, shoes, souvenirs. Mirepoix is a medieval walled town and the market square is surrounded by half-timbered houses. There are several good restaurants including Le Commerce (good for lunch outside in the courtyard) and for a special treat, Le Relais Royale.
