Mairies in the Aude
You can find Mairies in the Aude on the Aude Conseil General site. Click on the canton to get a list of villages and Mairies. the listings have contact phone numbers, website and email addresses - if the village has them - the name of the Maire and the days and hours that the Mairie is open.
If you have any questions about the village, about building permits, about whether you can add windows or terraces, or anything else that you need to know before you buy a house the Mairie is the place to start.
And you should always go and introduce yourself to the Maire and anyone working in the Maire once you buy a house.
