This region is steeped in medieval History and the Cathars. Mountains, gorges, rivers, canals and plenty of wildlife. Chic shopping in Toulouse and Montpellier or bird watching a few hundred metres away in the dried up salt lake known as the Etang. Mild winter climate averaging around 12C in Dec / Jan and a hot and sunny 30C in July / August.
This is still a very authentic, rustic and unpretentious part of southern France with friendly, hospitable locals.
Carcassonne. The medieval walled city dates back to the 6th Century. It has 52 towers and 2 miles of ramparts and is still inhabited to this day. Narrow streets offer a vast selection of shops and eateries. The city has been the setting for several films including Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. The place comes alive in Summer especially in July when they have the Music Festival and you can find different types of music / acts dotted around the city and performing in the outdoor theatre.
