Holidays in the medieval picture book town

With its historical ambience, the southern French town of Carcassonne seems to have fallen out of time and thus exudes a very special charm. Accordingly, you will live particularly beautifully in a holiday apartment or an apartment in the immediate vicinity of the defiant fortress ring, which today still surrounds a large part of the city. Feel the breath of history as you look out of the window and benefit from short distances to sights such as the Château Comtal. Alternatively, you can move into a vacation rental with pool, sun terrace and garden in the Charlemagne district.

Most of the highlights of Carcassonnes take place in summer. The first of these is the famous Carcassonne Festival, which takes place between June and August and offers a mixture of circus, dance, theatre, opera and concerts.
