A fairytale castle outside Monet's window

A comfortable nights sleep awaits after all your exploring

The lounge has a large sofa which can be made into a double bed

If you tire of eating out, have your own table with a view

The modern kitchen complements the old beams

The bathroom has a constant supply of hot water

Round the corner from the apartment and you feel like you have stepped back in time.

Colourful local markets are held in many nearby towns as well as Carcassonne (3 times a week)

The surrounding countryside is a painters paradise, or perhaps just somewhere for a leasurely walk.

Seeing a concert within the Castle can be a highlight of a trip

Circulade villages were built around a castle, this one is near Carcassonne

The Donjon or keep is at the centre of the Castle walls

Take a leisurly boat trip on the Canal du Midi

The autumn colours of the vines are a sight to see

One of the many festivals is Limoux carnival

The firework display on Bastille day is amazing, book early for this one.

At the local markets, the selection of produce can be overwhelming

Puivert castle is one of many in the surrounding area

Montsegur is a Cathar castle and well worth the climb, especially in winter
