Flight and hotel Carcassonne

Welcome To Carcassonne

The picturesque town of Carcassonne is one of the most famous and historic places in the south of France. Crowned by the majestic hill fort that overlooks the town, this beautiful destination makes for a perfect weekend away. A flight and hotel in Carcassonne is a great way to enjoy this exceptional French town and the beautiful scenery that surrounds it. Only a short flight from both London and Manchester, package holidays to Carcassonne are an ideal way to get to know this charming corner of France.

What To Know Before Visiting Carcassonne?

  • The town is served by Carcassonne Airport. Just 3 km from the town centre, this cute little airport has regular bus links into Carcassonne.
  • Carcassonne is in France, which means that the currency is the euro. It’s wise to order some local currency when arranging your flight to Carcassonne.
  • The language spoken in Carcassonne is, naturally, French. While many people in France speak English, don’t rely on it! With that in mind, it pays to learn at least a few French phrases – the locals will really appreciate the effort.
  • Dress for dinner! Restaurants may not have a dress code as such, but the French are a chic crowd and you may feel out-of-place in shorts and trainers.

When Is A Good Time To Visit Carcassonne?

Carcassonne’s many museums, attractions, restaurants and bars mean that there is always something to see and do all year round. That said, city breaks to Carcassonne are probably most pleasurable during the summer months when you can wander through the charming cobbled streets and enjoy the open spaces of the citadel. A weekend in Carcassonne during summer also allows you to explore the lush French countryside that lies beyond the town.

What Are The Best Places To Visit In Carcassonne?

  • Many people book city breaks to Carcassonne just to see the town’s magnificent walled citadel.
  • The breathtaking Basilica of Saints Nazarius and Celsus that lies within the citadel of Carcassonne is an incredible sight.
  • The Canal du Midi that flows through Carcassonne makes for great afternoon strolling – with the promise of a nice wine in a waterside cafe just around the next bend.
  • If you want to feel like a local, head to the Place Carnot and dive into the fruit and veg market.
  • The Lac de la Cavayere is a splendid lake just outside Carcassonne that's ideal for hiking, swimming and picnicking.

What Is There To Do In Carcassonne?

Fine chocolates and delicious wines are chief among Carcassonne’s delicacies, so why not combine both on a tasting tour of the town? Cocoa & Grapes offers a gentle walking tour of Carcassonne that includes stopping in for some lovely chocs and a drop of wine in some of the town’s best known culinary spots.

If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary on your weekend in Carcassonne, why not try Le Parc Australien just outside the town? This Aussie-themed nature park is chock-full of cute kangaroos and wacky wallabies. It's a little rough and ready, but no less charming for it!

What To Eat And Drink In Carcassonne?

Package holidays to Carcassonne promise the best in fine French dining, and you could do little better than La Barbacane. This Michelin-starred restaurant serves perfectly presented French cuisine, and whether you choose to dine in the wood-carved splendour of the restaurant or enjoy the spectacular views from the delightful garden terrace, you are assured a wonderful dining experience.

Those looking for something a little less fancy will love the warm welcome, fine food and family atmosphere that awaits in La Pataterie Carcassonne. A spud-lover’s delight, this charming family restaurant specialises in a variety of potato dishes, with raclette – a delicious combination of cheese and potato – a real favourite.

Bring A Piece of Carcassonne Home

Your weekend in Carcassonne will perhaps be best remembered with a tasty local treat. Philippe Boccardi is a master chocolatier and his shop is bursting with divine confections, all of which are made with high quality ingredients. Beautifully presented and lavishly packaged, they make for delicious mementos of your Carcassonne break.
