The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Bordered by the Mediterranean coast to the east and the Pyrenees to the south, the region of Languedoc Roussillon benefits from a Mediterranean climate and a wealth of history.

The list of things to see seems endless and includes to name a few; Mountains with fortresses known as the Cathar Castles with all the history associated therein, Rivers, Lakes, Towns, Abbeys, Cathedrals, Canals, Chateaus and World Heritage Sites, of which La Cite in Carcassonne is one.

A popular destination for French Holidays, the long sunny days and milder winters provide fantastic opportunities to explore the region.


The 2nd most visited city in France after the capital, Carcassonne offers a wealth of activities for the city visitor and for those willing to travel further afield.

On the banks of the river Aude lies its famous fortified medieval town, La Cité which was restored in the 19th century, allowing you to wander along its narrow cobbled streets and ramparts. Along with the regular attractions of history and castle to explore, the city comes alive in the summer with regular jousting and falconry displays, a host of events, concerts and theatre known as the Carcassonne Festival and runs from late June through to September.

If you make it beyond La Cité, the lower part of Carcassonne known as the Bastide. Built within the walls, the Bastide is set out in a grid construction and provides an easy pattern to explore, eminating out from Place Carnot, where Saturday morning markets are held, and the Christmas market and Ice Rink is situated over the festive period.

A short walk along the pedestrian shopping street takes you to the Canal du Midi which winds its way round the northern sector of the town on its way through the Aude towards the Mediterranean. Even with the many boat trips available, you may not get time to see along the 175 miles of navigable waterways built in the 17th century which, in 1996, were also awarded UNESCO world heritage status. The section of the canal in Carcassonne provides a pleasant walk and views of some of the canals many locks.

If you fancy a swim, then a 5 minute stroll from the apartment will take you to the Piscine du Paicherou, an open air pool. Open throughout the summer months, it provides a large pool along with a paddling pool and plenty of room to soak up the sun. Alternatively you could explore the Lac de la Cavayere, a short drive or bus ride from the apartment, where you have a large swimming lake, water sports, inflatables splash zone and close by a forest adventure zone with zip slides across the lake. For a quieter time, dip your feet in the Aude, wander along the banks of the river to find many splash pools and playgrounds for young children.

If you wish to venture further afield, bikes are available to hire from Carcassonne Evasion 2 Roues, starting at €10 for a day up to €50 for the week. Cycle routes include the banks of the Canal du Midi but there are many more to explore.

For those of you with an adventurous holiday requirement, a 30 minute drive or bus journey will take you down the Aude to Limoux and white water rafting. Or choose a Cathar castle to climb, Montsegur is a strenuous 30 minutes for the fittest, but many more such as Puillarens or Lastours represent a more sedate climb, still with the most fantastic views to reward your efforts.

Come the winter season, the Ice Rink and Luges in Carcassonne during December may be all you need, and at €4 per hour per skating session are easily affordable for all the family. To venture further afield, the Ski resorts of the Pyrennes are within a 90 minute drive, and quieter during the weeks as the locals are all at work, but get there early on a weekend, as the drive up there becomes very busy.

"Lovely apartment"

This apartment was a great base for us during our weekend stay - immaculately clean, very comfortable and with just about every item you could possibly need. We also appreciated to idiot-proof instructions on how to use the TV, Wifi, etc.! I'm glad I'd checked out the entrance to the apartment on street view, though - based on the photos on websites, I'd have been looking for the tiled, spiral staircase, but in fact this is inside the tenement building; the entrance from the street is just a discreet door next to shops...

"Fantastic short break"

Excellent location in terms of access to geographical and historical atrractions in the whole Languedoc region.

Upon arrival greeted by fantastic welcome pack.

Accommodation was very clean and well presented. Located close to the centre of the old town, it is very well served by local shops, restaurants, etc. It is also only a short walking distance from the historical "La Cite" fortified tourist attraction.

3 middle aged couples easily shared this accommodation for 3 nights, however it could have served us well, for a much longer stay.

Although not a major issue for us, the location of the town bells can prompt an early start to the day.

"Lovely apartment, very well equiped and most comfortable"

We were supplied with very clear and detailed directions to the property which when we arrived on a windy and wet April day was most warm and welcoming [this included a welcome pack to refresh us all]. We were most appreciative of the help of the local manager who was great. Every room was very well equiped, the kitchen most especially so. Linens, towels, crockery, cookware etc were all in immaculate condition and were of good quality. Bedrooms, sitting and dining rooms were of a very good size and were most comfortable. The apartment is central and well located for shops, bars and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
