Short break Carcassonne

Carcassonne Carcassonne Carcassonne Carcassonne


3 days
Let yourself be surprised with this break of three days in the fortified city of Carcassonne: St Nazaire Basilica, Rue Cros Mayrevieille, Lices Basses, Lices Hautes, Gate of Narbonne, Aude Gate and others. With its double encircling of ramparts and its chateau, its formidable citadel built between the Languedoc plain and the first foothills of Corbière, the city of Viscount Terncavel nourishes the imagination of all those who come upon it.

Perched on a rocky hilltop and bristling with zigzag battlements, stout walls and spiky turrets, from afar the fortified city of Carcassonne looks like something out of a children’s storybook. Its people’s perfect idea of a medieval castle, and it’s undoubtedly an impressive sight – not to mention one of the Languedoc’s biggest tourist draws.

Carcassonne is known as the place to eat the regional specialty: cassoulet, a slow-cooked bean stew with sausages, pork, and duck or goose.

While in Carcassonne it's also worth visiting St. Vincent's Church, dating from the 13th-16th centuries. It's a Gothic style church with an octagonal bell tower housing 47 bells. The highlight is walking to the top of the steeple, a climb that may leave you me sore a day later but afforded us views of all of Carcassonne and was definitely worth it!

Freely enjoy these 3 days discovering the city of Carcassonne. This exceptional stay offers you a guided tour of the medieval city, a commented cruise along the Canal du Midi and 2 nights in the heart of the fortified city.
