Inundated with rich history, the Aude has long been a place of interrest for the gourmand, historian and traveller alike. Restaurants are teeming with local specialities such as Foie-Gras, Cassoulet, wild mushrooms and of course the large selection of cheeses that are complimented by a wide array of regional wines that are found hidden away in the towns dotted around the surrounding countryside.
The history of the Aude is another example of a historian's dream where religions, royalty and the local people have clashed over centuries leaving a unique culture and landscape filled with castles, walled towns, churches and towering cathedrals speckled about and just waiting to be discovered...
The apartments are located just off Place Carnot, the traditional market square of Carcassonne in the medieval heart of the fortified old town, the Bastide. A paradise of cafÃ©s, delicatessens, art galleries, restaurants and shops weave together to form the surrounding area. For visitors to the town a car is not required but is recommended for anyone wanting to visit the region in full.
