From La Royale's gîte terrace on a clear night, the city lights of Carcassonne can be seen twinkling like tiny coloured jewels on black velvet and there is no artificial-light pollution so gazing at the distant stars in the night sky is easy. During the day, there are many historic and cultural places to visit nearby, including popular man-made lakes to take a dip and cool-off, or to throw a picnic. The iconic fortified city of Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi, are close-by and are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites in France. Carcassonne also has a truly magnificent cathedral near the town centre.

In central Carcassonne from midday until very late in the evening, there are tons of restaurants and cafés to try, or you may wish to pause all that sight-seeing and take a breather somewhere just to sit and relax with an aperitif in the balmy atmosphere of Carcassonne town, sampling the unique ambiance of the, " South of France " and watch the world go by.

What kind of customers rent your holiday gîte near Carcassonne ?

All sorts of gîte customers from Europe, the USA, New Zealand, and from all walks of life. They most often share something in common in that they normally live or work in a coastal area and a countryside adventure appeals enormously!  Forest, mountainous terrain, huge wide-open public spaces for walking and exploring, freshwater lakes, fresh and fragrant air, historic monuments, wine tasting, local village fetes, markets and festivals, bird watching, fishing, and many other countryside pursuits.

A beach-lovers holiday gîte rental this is not but what we found is that our gîte customers usually visit a beach once or maybe twice during their stay at Gîte La Royale and thoroughly enjoyed the road-trip there and back which seems to me to be the best of both worlds? If you seek to sample and enjoy the real South of France, with their regional choice of recipes and local attractions, you really need to go inland a bit. Talking of recipes, most every big shopping centre has a self-service restaurant nearby, in which your family can luncheon or dine French cuisine at a very reasonable price - Carcassonne has 3 restaurants like this. And of course, if you seek the finest cuisine, you'll find both chic or romantically traditional French restaurants in Carcassonne too.
