A TALE OF TWO CITIES - CARCASSONNE

Carcassonne is a tale of two cities - divided by the River Aude - the ancient walled Cite and fairy-tale castle on the plateau on the right side of the river and the 'newer' Bastide Saint-Louis or lower town on the left..

Theories on how Carcassonne got its name abound, but arguably the most popular is the story of Dame Carcas, which dates to a siege of the City in the early Middle Ages.

According to legend, around 8th Century the Frankish king tried to starve Carcassonne's Saracen population into submission.

After a long siege foodstocks were severely deplenished and defeat was looming - but the ruler's wife Carcas had a bright idea: she gave orders for a pig to be force fed with the very last sacks of grain, and then tossed over the city walls.

When the pig fell and split open, revealing the contents of its stomach, the watching troops were fooled into believing the inhabitants still had plenty of supplies.

As they retreated in dispair, the jubiliant townsfolk called for church bells to be rung in triumph: 'Carcas, sonne!' ('Ring Carcas!').

Today visitors to La Cite can admire a head and torso statue of a plump, smiling woman, representing the town's namesake, mounted on a column near the Porte Narbonnaise.

A more likely theory, however, is that the name comes from the Celtic Carsac, or the Roman Carcaso or Carcasum, (an important Roman trading post on the site some 2000 years ago).

Others say it derives from Occitan, from the words carac (meaning rock, after the spur on which it sits), and sonne (meaning wood, for the surrounding forest).

Large airy apartment with stunning view of Le Cité

  • 5 of 5
Please see my very positive review of the Renoir apartment - the same comments apply to this larger apartment in terms of excellent facilities and location etc. Over and above, this apartment is more spacious, easily accommodating four, if not six, people in total. The two large windows at the front (from the double bedroom and lounge) look over the rooftops to a splendid unobstructed view of the ramparts of Le Cité as shown. There's a separate dining area with large table, which opens out on to a small private terrace. Again, special mention must go to the owners who go out of their way (literally!) to ensure your stay is as enjoyable and stress free as possible. A no brainer re booking to be honest...

Wonderful location for holiday

  • 5 of 5
We ve just returned from a wonderful in Carcassonne.Thanks to Jason and Annette , Inga and Mick for providing such a great apartment.The location was the best part of what , for us , was the holiday of a lifetime.The spectacular view of the medieval walls from the apartment was breathtaking.The proximity of La Cite means you can be up there in about three minutes.There is lots to do around the town with or without the car.There is a beautifully maintained public park within a stones throw of the apartment, great markets , lots of interesting things to do.The kitchen was really well kitted out and had al the necessary facilities .I left my phone behind and Jason went to a lot of bother to get it to a friend of mine who was flying home two days later. All in all , we d go back in the morning.Thanks again.

Cezanne Apartment Carcassonne

  • 4 of 5
What a wonderful view of the Castle from the Cezanne Apartment.We found the apartment perfect for our needs it was spacious and homely.The beds were extremely comfortable. The location was also excellent with free car parking just round the corner by the church .
This was an ideal base to explore the surrounding area. We drove through vineyards and beautiful countryside to towns of Bezier and Narbonne both well worth a visit and not too far away.
The best restaurant we found was just round the corner just before the old bridge across the river called Le Jardin D'Ete- this looked nothing outside but opened up to a fantastic al fresco garden with wood burning pizza ovens and candlelit tables-Fabulous food too.We will definitely return in the future.

Such a beautiful Location!

  • 4 of 5
My friend and I had a wonderful stay here in October, 2010. It is in the most wonderful location, having the best of both worlds - just a couple of steps from the medieval cite, yet only a few minutes walk from the centre of the main city. The views were fantastic! The local area is also lovely - lots of tiny cobbled streets, with fantastic breadshops and also a couple of local restaurants if you don't want to venture too far.

Dinner in la Cite is a must - we found a couple of wonderful eateries up within the medieval walls which were good value. The shops are excellent too!

The apartment was spacious, comfortable and well equipped. I would have no hesitation in recommending it, and hope to return in 2011.

Many thanks to everyone for making our booking so easy, and also thanks to Inga for all her help, and for collecting us from the airport. The sort of fantastic service that can make all the difference!

Lovely apartment located outside le Cite walls

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in the Cezanne apartment, it had everything you could wish for while on holiday, fantastic views of the castle especially at night, a brilliant location for exploring le Cite and the surrounding countryside and also a small terrace for relaxing with a glass of wine. Also a big thank you to Inga for providing transport to and from the airport. We would defintely stay here again if we holidayed in this part of the country.
