Long Weekend in Carcassonne

Surrounded by vineyards and rolling hills in the backdrop, Carcassonne stands proudly in the valley of the Aude river and sits beside the Pyrenees. This walled city is a fine example of a medieval labyrinth, with 52 towers and is a remarkable 1.9 miles long! I would suggest heading to the Canal du Midi to enjoy a relaxing and romantic boat ride. Cruising along this 300-year-old waterway will allow you to treasure the tranquillity of the city as you glide by lush vineyards in the heart of the Languedoc wine region.

Hotel l’Octroi is a family-friendly and trendy hotel with an outdoor pool and is located in close proximity to major hotspots like Chateau Comtal, Narbonnaise Gate and Aude Gate. I suggest heading out early to avoid tourists and just immersing yourself into the winding passageways and alleys. By night, a great plan would be to start in Place Carnot and choose one of the boutique French restaurants to enjoy the authentic ambience the Bastide de Saint-Louis area has to offer. A lovely feature is the Fountain of Neptune which dates back to 1770!
