Micro-climates in the Aude

You often hear people talk about micro-climates in the Aude. There are climatic differences between areas. a lot of them are because of the geography; different climate in the foothills of the Pyrenees than in Carcassonne.

We get emails from people saying "we want a micro-climate". I don't actually know what that means. There are parts of the Aude that are quite windy. If you're looking around and see a lot of windmills and you don't like wind, it's better to look somewhere else.

The area near and in the foothills of the Pyrenees is cold in the winter and often get snow. Cooler in the summer, which can be nice.

Generally the climate is lovely, you don't have to worry.
