Unique experiences

Do you want to live a unique experience for your stay in Carcassonne ?

L’écrin de la Cité is the ideal villa for holidays with family or friends.

Located at the bottom of the ramparts of the famous Cité of Carcassonne, you will enjoy its magnificent setting between the historic heritage and an exceptional terroir to live a unique experience.

Cathar castles

The Cathar Castles are symbols of medieval stories and legends.

Perched on vertiginous rocky peaks and overlooking the plains as far as the Mediterranean sea, Aguilar, Lastours, Montségur, Peyrepertuse, Puilaurens, Quéribus and Termes form around Carcassonne a defensive set long reputed to be impregnable: les Citadelles du Vertige.

We cannot speak of the Cathar castles without mentioning the numerous abbeys: Lagrasse, Fontfroide, Saint-Hilaire …

Let’s go back to the times of knights!
