Situation of La Maison d'Oc

CARCASSONNE

The magnificent walled cité of Carcassonne, was first fortified by the Romans, - it was later added on and strengthened during the middle ages. It was besieged in Charlemagne in 795AD, who withdrew due to the cunning of Dame Carcass - a Saracen princess. Later it became the center for Troubadour poets, and then was taken by Simon de Montford in his crusades against the Cathars. At the end of the 19th century the castle was saved from extinction by the architect Viollet-le-Duc. Recently it provided the inspiration for Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty and Kevin Costners Robin Hood.

THE AREA

The Canal du Midi built in the 1660's borders the Domaine Saint Pierre de Trapel, - so one can take a bicycle and cycle to the center of Carcassonne. The canal reaches from Toulouse to Sete - creating a link between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. Recently it has been given the accolade of a world heritage site by UNESCO. On either side of the canal run tall plane trees - some dating back 300 years, that provide the perfect place to picnic, and laze in the shade - whilst watching the boats cruise by.

To the north lie the Black Mountains - with abbeys such as at Caunes, splendid with marble that is found in the surrounding hills, near to are deep magical caves like the Grotte de Limousis and the 4 castles near Lastours (son et lumiere in the summer).

To the south is Limoux, home of sparkling white wine -that was the inspiration for Champagne; and Rennes Le Chateau - a mystical center of controversy - supposed site of the Holy Grail and other treasures. To the east within easy reach are the beaches of the Mediterranean, with the lively market towns potent with history of roman Narbonne, and Beziers (summer bull fights, and fetes).

ACCESS

La Maison d'Oc and Le Domaine Saint Pierre de Trapel are just northeast of Carcassonne. Pick up can be arranged at the airport if necessary (flights to Paris, Brussels, London). Otherwise closest airports are Toulouse (90 minutes), Montpellier (2 and half hours), Perpignan (2 hours). There is a railway station at Carcassonne (pick up can be arranged). There is no public transport between the Domaine and the city - so rental cars or your own transport is recommended
