The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Languedoc-Roussillon / Aude region
Languedoc Roussillon is a remarkable region. With the Mediterranean sea on one side and the Pyrenees to the south, it boasts contrasting culture and history. Intriguing history, that has survived the ages in tradition. The regions castles, fortresses or stunning abbeys, will take you back in time.
The weather in Languedoc has a Mediterranean climate, with hot dry summers and over 300 days of sunshine a year. Temperatures are frequently in the eighties (30c) plus. With an outstandingly diverse coastline, sheltered by mountains. A stunning coastal region offering beautiful beaches and watersports for everyone.
A region bordering Spain, it also benefits from some of the best winter sports in the Pyrennes.
For those wanting a less energetic holiday, there are many other pastimes to enjoy. Cycle along the Canal du Midi or take a walk along one of the many marked trails, ranging from hourly rambles to treks lasting days or weeks. There is horse-riding for all levels and canoeing too.
Food in Languedoc Roussillon is particularly enviable, due to its central location around the basin of the Mediterranean. Gastronomically rich, owing to the generosity of the sun, land and sea.
The Languedoc plain is home to some of Frances greatest fruit and veg growing, with Mediterranean favourites, such as, sun-ripened apricots, plump tomatoes, artichokes, zingy lemons and much more. Natural coastal ' etangs ' provide homes, for flamingoes and marine life. The water rich areas provide the perfect habitat for oysters and mussels. Sete is the biggest fishing port, where you will find the most amazing varieties of fresh fish; baby squid, octopus, red mullet, sea bream and tuna etc. A real seafood lovers dream!
Olive groves provide treasured oils that rarely leave the area due to their high demand. Enjoy a Lucque olive, with a glass of Muscat, as an aperitif. Woodlands, scented with rosemary, tyme and mint, provide a natural habitat for wild boar, which helps provide the Languedoc with its winter diet. A rich dark stew with a glass of scented Corbieres, what could be better?
For cheese lovers, you will not be disappointed. Goat's and sheep's cheese, infused with wild mountain herbs. Roquefort, world famous blue cheese, still made and matured in caves of the Larzac Plateau.
Languedoc, is the word largest wine region and also the most exciting. It consists of a multitude of appellations, including, Corbieres, Fitou, St. Chinian, Muscats du Languedoc, Limoux and Cotes du Roussillon, the list continues and though yields have been significantly reduced, quality is now the name of the game. Established vines of the indigenous grape varieties, such as, Grenache and Cinsault, are grown alongside less traditional Syrah, Merlot and Chardonnay. Whether it be, a chilled glass of Chardonnay, with a brimming bowl of Moules mariniere, or a hearty rustic cassoulet, with a deep red Faugeres, you will find that the Languedoc Roussillon offers you the perfect accompaniement, to whatever the mood, occasion or setting.
The Apartment Soult is located a few minutes walk from Place Carnot with its vibrant food market. Stock up on fresh olives, locally made sausage and tasty cheeses or simply sit and watch the world go by, in one of the numerous cafes or bistros, sampling some of the gastronomic delights.
The town is served by a free of charge Aglo Bus service. Wave a hand at the driver and he will stop and take you to where you want to go in the town.
Jump aboard the petit train or walk over the historic old bridge Pont Vieux, with its beautiful stone arches, to the medieval Citadel (La Cite), built high on a hill, overlooking Carcassonne, the pyrennes and Black mountains. This UNESCO world heritage site, offers a fascinating glimpse back into history, with its Chateau Comtal and St. Nazaire cathedral. Take a boat, stroll or cycle along the tree lined Canal du Midi(the second world heritage site of Carcassonne) Boat and bike hire available.
For those who want to explore further a field, car hire is available locally through(www.hertz.fr or www.europcar.fr)) Have a day out to a vineyard, castle, ruin, or one of the numerous quaint villages, driving through one of the breathtaking mountain gorges on the way.
Carcassonne also offers numerous Festivals,shows and concerts, with headline bands (www.carcassonne.org) and the truly spectacular fireworks display on Bastille day on July 14th. Bastille day is celebrated like no other in France. La Cite becomes alight with over 1200 charges detonated over the 600 meters, of the Cites facade, making it one of the biggest displays in Europe.
At Christmas, Carcassonne is transformed into a ' Magical Winter Wonderland ', with thousands of pretty fairy lights, and other light displays, illuminating the city. Have a glass of hot mulled wine in Place Carnot, whilst watching the skaters on the ice-rink, or stroll around one of the log cabins selling locally hand-made gifts. A great festive spirit with fun and entertainment, for young and old.

"The perfect apartment in the perfect location"
We stayed in the apartment for the month of June. The apartment is extremely well appointed and ideally located for all local sights and amenities. It is comfortable, roomy, light and airy and has everything you need. Much thought has been given to the renovation and the spiral staircase is a particularly attractive feature. The courtyard is a sun trap and gets the sun for most of the morning, making for a very relaxed start to the day. Jason is the perfect host - accessible without being obtrusive. I would definitely recommend a stay in the Apartment Soult.

The gite is extremely well equiped-everything new and sparkling-british tv chanels and good wifi. Proper cooker unlike many gites.The gite itself is accessed from the street-rue du vieux port-via a bo… More
Nice to hear this guest appreciates that we haven't skimped on equipping the apartment. Even the velux rooflight has a remote control blind.
Although we do feel there is a slightly negative edge to this review.
Firstly we should be clear that the apartment is not accessed via a boarded up shop,it is accessed via an entrance door into the main apartment building which we also own. There is then a well lit,spacious entrance hall/ corridor leading into the private courtyard which is 6.5 metres x 3 metres. Being hidden from the street the apartment is very quiet and guests particularly enjoy sitting in the courtyard which is also a suntrap. Of course being in an historic town centre there are other apartments in the adjacent building.
The shopfront adjacent to the entrance door which the guest refers is currently used as a garage, we do hope to transform this into an interesting shop in the future. However, this project will have to wait until finances/resources allow as we have prioritised to make our apartments as higher spec. as possible.
We do always give our guests several contact numbers and ask for our guests mobile number if they have one. The vast majority of our guests are collected by us from either Carcassonne airport or train station. These particular guests were driving from Clermont Ferrand so we asked them to call to confirm their arrival time. We don't really understand this guest's point about carrying a mobile phone as pretty much everyone has one nowadays and on occasions they prove invaluable such as when flights are delayed or trains are late.

"Idyllic Cottage with every amenity"
Jason and Annette were fantastic, making us feel like one of their family. They were easy to contact and nothing was too much to ask.
The maisonette we stayed in was perfect, it had everything we needed - from spices to pans and a washing machine and dvds and books. The maisonette was very modern and luxurious.
The accomodation was in a great location, with easy walking distance to the castle, train station aswell as the shops and town square. We definetly did not need a car.
The only negative of the place was that we had to go home!
