    Pleasant Stay.

    by

    This hotel is in the perfect position to visit the Medieval city,which is within 100 meters of the main gate.Although we would have liked the room and en suite to have been larger it was comfortable and spotlessly clean.There was always plenty of hot water and clean towels supplied each day.Air con. was excellent.Nice pool and spa pool available for after a days sightseeing.This was at the Hotel Du Chateau (across road) but could be used by Hotel Montmorency residents who could also share the other facilities.
    Our room also had a balcony with views across to the fortress.

    Charming hotel in a fabulous location

    by

    We stayed in the Hotel Montmorency (also known as the Hotel du Chateau by the locals) on 3rd & 4th February. Some of the reviews on Tripadvisor have been less than complimentary, and I'm glad to say that we had a totally different experience!. We booked a deluxe room (No. 36) for €85 per night which was on the 1st floor of the Annexe behind the hotel. Access was by security code and there was sensor lighting at the entrance so you didn't stumble when returning in the early hours.

    Our room was very charming with red toile de jouy style wallpaper, an incredibly comfortable double bed with plenty of spare pillows, lots of lamps for additional lighing and a little wall-mounted TV with satellite channels. We also had a single bed which we immediately used as an extra wardrobe, despite the cute little wardrobe with folding doors! The bathroom, although compact, was spotless with a large mirror, sufficient towels and a hand held/wall mounted shower hose to suit all

    Breakfast in the hotel is €6.50pp and is typically French - a tartine or bread roll with butter and jam, a basket of croissants/danishes and yoghurt with orange juice, tea, coffee or hot chocolate. It's served in the bar area between 7.30 - 10.30am. At night you can enjoy a nice beer or glass of wine and look up at the stunning view of the Cite.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Montmorency and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending it to fellow travellers (book a deluxe room though, just to be sure!).

    Unique Quality: Points to note...

    10 minutes by taxi from Carcassonne Airport (about €15). It's cheaper to get a taxi directly from the airport than get the Navette bus to the Gare and a taxi onwards to the Hotel

    1 minute from the Cite

    10-15 minutes walk from the main town centre (€6-€7 by taxi if you feel very lazy)

    Directions: Just opposite the steps leading to La Cite

    Hotel Montmorency

    by

    Directly across the road from the castle, this is a great little hotel to stay when you visit charming Carcassonne. Cheap 'n' cheerful, staff are friendly and there's a nice pool for cooling off. Rooms are somewhat cramped but with breakfast included, it's a great deal.

Languedoc - A terra dos cátaros

by Mazely

In a trip that includes Barcelone and Paris, you'll never imagine that the best part is none of those. I liked Languedoc-Roussillon more than Barcelone and Paris (well, I had gone to Paris before...), since I had much more "adventure" and "non-touristical" things to do and see there. The time I spent in Languedoc was like time in the Middle Ages, not only a travel "in the space", but also a travel in time.

Languedoc-Roussillon region includes Roussillon, an originally catalan part, which most important city is Perpignan, and Languedoc itself, the country of the cathars, "pure" ones, that tried to follow the example of the first christians and were eliminated by the Roman Church. Carcassonne and Toulouse (this one the capital of the Midi-Pirenees region) are the main cities of the southern Languedoc, while Montpellier (I shall visit this city another time!) is the main one in the northern part, closer to Provence.

"Carcassonne, could it be more beautiful and sad?"

Carcassonne is the main touristical destination in Languedoc (well, now they have also Rennes-le-Chateau, with all those ocultist books...). Coming from Barcelone by train, you can rent a car and sleep one night in Perpignan, and then pass by Rennes and reach Carcassonne. It's the ideal place for fly-and-drive, thus.
The medieval city of Carcassonne was practically rebuilt in the XIX Century. There's a nice hotel (Montmorency) just across the street, from the towers of the Narbonensis Gate. The medieval city is simply wonderful, and you find a lot of touristic help in the languedocian cities.
Why did I say it's sad? Because of the humanistic and peaceful civilization that could be risen and was aborted by the Cruzade.

"Cathar castles"

The "Albigense Cruzade" was carried on by the Roman Church against the heretic cathars, who lived in Languedoc, by the XII Century. Many castles still remind us of those times; many of them were actually used by the cathars, including the medieval city of Carcassonne.
The Castel of Peyrepertuse is probably the best preserved one. It was partially rebuilt by Louis IX, that changed it into a strong fortress. However, this very castle wasn't a cathar site. But the climbing of the castle is something!
Other very very interesting cities: Perpignan and Narbonne. Lots of things to do in and around both. Very friendly people too!
