Stop off between Calais and Carcasonne

by ADRIAN146

I am planning to drive from Calais to Carcasonne in the summer with my wife 3 children and 2 Grandparents. I will need to do the journey in 2 days. Do you have any good ideas for hotels or B&B's to stop at on the way? ideally on a budget but I would rather something with quality.

I would be looking to stop somewhere near Tours. Lots of things to see around there. I couldn't recommend any specific hotels, but I would probably look for something through Logis de France or for maximum convenience, one of the bigger chains like Accor (Novotel, Mercure etc).

Most maps would give you a route via Limoges using the main motorways. That is good and Toll fees will be about €60.
You can also look at going down the centre of France through the Massif Central region. On a map you see Clermont Ferrand and to the south Montpellier. Linking these cities is the Autoroute A75 also called "la Méridienne" that is scenic and last time I used it was free. There is also on this route the modern bridge called Viaduc de la Violette near Millau which is quite an engineering achievement. I think that going over the new bridge is the only Tolled section.

Off the A75 will be a suitable stop I am certain. It is for you to decide the best road route and then decide on the distances covered and then decide on an area to search for accommodation.

Sometimes the Logis de France chain can give cheaper end accommodation in the more rural areas and would be worth looking at once you decide on the route.

I have used Logis and normally spend more on the food and wine than the modest accommodation - so be warned !

Spot on with the Tours region!

Googlemaps gives you the shortest way via Paris but I would avoid it. Better you drive down west via Rouen and Le Mans. You could stay at a Logis de France in one of the nice villages on the Loire or Cher river. I would always prefer a Logis de France because those normally have more character whereas the Accor chain, for example, guarantees a good standard but the hotels look alike wherever you go and are bland.

The Tours region is the departement Indre-et-Loire

If you click on the sites the logis shows up, and with a further click you get price information. You can get rooms for 40 to 60 Euro. Also look at the deals for half pension.

Hi Thanks very much for this, have you been to Orleans? any ideas what the area is like?

Good suggestions from Pedro. Loches is another option about 80 km from Vierzon. There is a medieval royal palace, also with connections to Jeanne d'Arc.

Travel Tips for Carcassonne

L'oppidum de Carsac

by Klod5

Vers le VIIIe siècle avant J.-C., l'oppidum de Carsac est établi à deux kilomètres au sud de la cité actuelle. L'agglomération étendue sur les hauteurs d'un plateau sur plus de vingt hectares est protégée d'un fossé et d'entrées en chicane. Sous la pression d'un accroissement démographique, le site est réorganisé et agrandi vers la fin du VIIe siècle : un deuxième fossé complété par des levées de terre et des palissades en bois est alors aménagé pour assurer la protection de la nouvelle extension.
Sans que l'on en cerne les raisons réelles, l'oppidum de Carsac est abandonné au début du VIe siècle av. J.-C. pour être transféré sur la butte dominant la plaine de l'Aude. Les vestiges recueillis lors de fouilles archéologiques témoignent de l'occupation de ce site du premier Age du Fer jusqu'à la conquête romaine : murettes en pierre sèche, silos à grains, fours de potiers ou de bronziers. La découverte d'un mobilier abondant, plus particulièrement de céramiques (amphores, coupes, vases…) attestent l'activité de cette agglomération ouverte aux échanges commerciaux établis entre le pays audois et le bassin méditerranéen. Toward the VIIIth century before J.-C., the oppidum of Carsac is established to two kilometers in the south of the present city. The agglomeration spread on the heights of a tray on more of twenty hectares is protected from a ditch and entries in quibbling. Under the pressure of a demographic growth, the site is reorganized and enlarged toward the end of the VIIth century : a second ditch completed by levees of earth and palisades in wood is arranged then to assure the protection of the new extension.
Without one surrounds the real reasons of it, the oppidum of Carsac is abandoned in the beginning of VIth century bef. J.-C. to be transferred on the mound dominating the plain of Aude. The vestiges collected at the time of archaeological excavations testify the occupation of this site of the first Age of Iron until the Roman conquest : murettes in dry stone, silos to grains, ovens of potters or bronziers. The discovery of an abundant furniture, more especially of ceramics (amphoras, cuts, vases…) attest the activity of this agglomeration opened to the commercial exchanges established between the country audois and the Mediterranean basin.

Enceinte du Bas Empire

by Klod5

L'enceinte des IIIème-IVème siècles de notre ère court sur plus de 1200 m autour de la butte.
Son tracé correspond au rempart intérieur médiéval à l'exception cependant de deux parties : sur l'angle sud-ouest et sur le tronçon compris entre la tour du Trésau et la tour du Moulin du Connétable, en retrait duquel les maçonneries arasées affleurent encore.
Courtines et tours sont réalisées en petit appareil de cubes de grès soigneusement taillés entrecoupés de lits de briques.
Sur la trentaine de tours qui armaient initialement la construction, 22 sont parvenues jusqu'à nos jours, certaines sous la forme de vestiges, d'autres conservées sur des élévations complètes. Tel est particulièrement le cas des tours du Moulin du Connétable, du Vieulas et de la Marquière qui s'imposent sur le front nord.
Leurs plans sont en forme de fer à cheval, semi-circulaires vers l'extérieur, à dos plat vers la ville enclose. Au-dessus de bases cubiques, les deux premiers niveaux sont construits en maçonneries pleines afin de consolider l'ensemble de la construction. Les ouvertures, en arc en plein cintre, sont cantonnées aux derniers niveaux.
Deux poternes aux linteaux soulagés par des arcs de décharge en briques et plaquettes de grès subsistent dans la muraille : l'une est placée au contact de la tour Pinte, l'autre confronte la tour du Moulin d'Avar.

Biking along the Canal du Midi

by crazylizzy

It's really relaxing and peacefull to bike along the Canal du Midi. We started at the train station and turned left following the canal(with the train station behind you). The canal is incredibly beautifull and tranquil. You will pass several locks. It is amazing to watch the canal boats go up or down in the lock.
But don't venture too far along the canal, or you'll end up on the Mediterrean coast!

Carcassone

by EnzimaT

Carcassone é a cidade medieval murada mais bem preservada da Europa. Situada no sul da França. O castelo foi construído no ano 1130, e parece uma daqueles castelos dos contos de fadas… com as suas torres, as muralhas, as pontes, as ruelas estreitas e o comércio típico. De entre os pontos mais visitados, devem estar o Portão de Narbonne, a Torre da Justiça e a Torre da Inquisição. Visite, também, o museu arqueológico, onde estão guardadas relíquias dos séculos XII e XIV, mas não perca a Basílica de Saint Nazaré e a Torre da Prisão.
