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.

Marseillette is approx 15 Kms from Carcassonne offering a typical village alongside the canal with a Boulangerie, Bar/Tabac, Post Office, Restaurant/Hotel, Hairdresser. Walk alongside the canal or sit on the benches in the shade and watch the boats go by. Ideal location to base yourself to visit the many...

15 minutes east of Carcassonne along the D610 road to Bezier. 7 minutes from Trebes which has all the supermarkets, shops, restaurants, petrol etc. A small typical village with the Canal du Midi running through it and the River Aude. 20 minutes from Carcassonne airport. Low cost airlines flying to Carcassonne, Beziers, Perpignan, Toulouse, Montpelier, Nimes and Girona and Barcelona in Spain making it an ideal location. There is no problem hiring a car in Spain and crossing the border, we are 2 hours from Girona and less than 3 from Barcelona airport.
