Weekend at Hotel de la Cite in CarcassoneWritten by admin on November 7th, 2011
Enjoy a fantastic weekend in France in Carcassone. Within the scenic French walled city of Carcassonne, Hôtel de la Cité offers luxury accommodations and the Michelin-starred La Barbacane Restaurant. Talk about location. Hôtel de la Cité is situated in the walled city of Carcassonne, Europe’s largest fortified citadel, overlooking the River Aude, the Lauragais valley, and the vineyards of Minervois.
With stone walls, wood paneling, and stained glass windows, the hotel is fitted with 42 rooms and 19 suites, no two of which are alike. Some have balconies or terraces with views of the Castle. Others overlook the Citadel’s narrow cobble-stoned streets. Michelin-star La Barbacane Restaurant is a point of pride with Hôtel de la Cité. Savor the chef’s creative interpretations of traditional favorites, paired with regional wines (including the Blanquette de Limoux, the oldest sparkling wine in the world). In the summer, dine under the trees at Le Jardin de l’Evêque, a quintessential French experience.
Your first time in Carcassonne? Hotel staff will happily arrange guided tours of historic sites, cruises on the Canal du Midi, or boat trips on the River Aude.
