The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
During July Carcassonne hosts "Le Festival de la Cité" - series of music and dance with world class rock and classical musicians and stars of opera and ballet.
Jousts are held in the lists between Carcassonne's inner and outer walls during July and August.
During the 13 weeks up to Easter each year Limoux holds the longest running carnival in Europe. Three times a day, every Saturday and Sunday there is a procession with fancy dress, music, dancing and lots of confetti throwing!
The Carcassonne area
‘La Cité' de Carcassonne?A 12th Century, walled town, restored to its former glory in the 19th Century and is now a UNESCO world heritage site. Full of shops, cafés, and bars, it is the second most visited site in France after Paris. As you might expect, it can be a bit crowded but well worth the visit for some spectacular photographs. Plan to get there for 8.30 for a few hours peace before the coaches arrive. The cathedral of St Nazaire has some of the finest medieval stained glass in the country and usually free organ recitals on a Sunday at 17.00 hrs. The newer part of Carcassonne, La bastide de St Louis (17th Century) has lots of shops, bookshops and a wide range of good, mediocre and poor restaurants. The Saturday morning market is held in the main square.?Approx. 30 mins. drive

Le Chene is set in spectacular countryside of the Aude with some stunning views, the location is perfect for all interests, if you like walking, visiting historical places, local markets and towns, or swimming in the Mediterranean, walking in the Pyrenees or even relaxing by the pool surrounded in peaceful countryside and enjoying stunning views then Le Chene is for you.
We were very impressed with the number of diverse activities that are on offer and can all participate in, there is something for everyone and hence I would not hesitate to thoroughly recommend this holiday for all the family.
The accommodation at Le Chene was superb and off a high quality, which was beautifully laid out, had all the amenities including satellite TV, BBQ, Internet access to name a few, and located at the end of a private lane with one farm and a Vineyard as neighbours. The peace and tranquility of the area was superb and was finished off with stunning views of the Pyrenees.
The hospitality of the owner and his wife were second to none and everyone felt very welcome and they could not do enough to make our stay most welcome and rememberable. The added bonus was the private swimming pool and sun loungers that you have access to if you wish to take life at a more relaxing pace.
I would thoroughly recommend Le Chene to anyone looking for a great relaxing holiday with so much to do and places to visit you are spoilt for choice. We will certainly be returning in the very near future and felt completely relaxed after our stay at Le Chene.

Stayed for 4 days only, which was very enjoyable indeed. Very picturesque and tranquil location with great views of vineyards and countryside. If you want a place just to 'chill' out and also as a base to visit the sights, this is ideal.
The gite was well-equipped and very comfortable. Modern BBQ set, flat screen TV and swimming pool was very welcome.
The owner was very very hospitable and welcoming.
We would love to come back for a longer stay.
