Can't think why this attraction is only 11th on the Trip Advisor Narbonne sights list, it should be much higher. We went as it was on the museum pass, great value at 9 euros per person for 7 sights. It's surprisingly close to the centre of Narbonne just by the railway(don't be put off by some of the shabby streets... More

Fascinating home of the local singer. Definitely worth a trip whilst in Narbonne - provided you can speak French, as all the information is only in French. I

This modest house, by the railway tracks houses a beautifully curated selection of Trenet memorabilia. As well as being the house where he was born, it was also his holiday home at times. The style of presention retains its lived in feeling; and there is a spirit of wistfulness and playfulness throughout the house. You can sing along with Charles... More

A short walk from the town centre of Narbonne there's this little gem of a museum dedicated to one of the country's great artistes. Some dual-language signs, so it's not too hard for non-French speakers, but it helps if you know a bit about Trenet or chanson style before you go. Impressive video displays provide a selection of performances, and... More

I have been a fan of the music of Charles Trenet for a long time. I often play his records on my radio show. I was travelling in the Aude recently and decided to visit his home. I asked several people working in Narbonne where the house was and they said they did not know it. I finally found the... More
