The Owner Recommends

Fortified city of Carcassonne

It is only half an hour driving from Domaine La Flotte but you can spend a day if you want to see all of this beautiful medieval walled city, "La Cité": the basilique, the castle, the museum, the ramparts and the lovely shops and restaurants. If you still got time left then make a boat trip on the Canal du Midi!

Cathar Castles

There are many of them worthwhile seeing: Montségur, Peyrepertuse, Quéribus, Lastours, Puylaurens.... to mention but a few.

Medieval Mirepoix

Mirepoix has a beautiful market place surrounded by ancient houses with arcades with carved wooden beams. There is a market every Monday. Worth seeing is further more the cathedral.
