Villages and Towns

Revel... centre of the highly skilled reproduction furniture industry. Recently named as one of the 100 best markets of France, where fresh produce and local atmosphere are in abundance. Market day is held every Saturday under the ancient covered Halle du Marché in the square, complete with covered arcades, one of two finest examples in France. The medieval town is built symmetrically around the central market place and is surrounded by fine 17th and 18th century houses with beautiful arcades at street level.

CarcassonneCarcassonne... a fairytale city with beautiful medieval walls and a world heritage UNESCO site. Guided tours, which tell you the fascinating story of the Cathars and how Carcassonne was the setting for the film Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves are available by foot or on a small train around the Old City's exterior wall (May - Sept). It is well worth spending a day here visiting both the castle and the lower town - and if you are in the area during July don't miss the spectacular fireworks display on July 14.

Toulouse ... with a fascinating array of things to see and do - from the Capitole - the assembly hall of the city magistrates, to the Basilica of St Sernin and the various museums of modern art (Les Abbatoirs) and photography, as well as home to Airbus and the Cité de l'Espace (space travel).

Albi... with its brick cathedral and marvellous 15th century fresco of the Last Judgment, the Toulouse Lautrec museum, and lovely scenery. Marvellous for a one day visit.

Mirepoix... a bustling Monday morning market held in the historic arcaded market square, makes a great place to shop for local produce or just to sit at one of the cafes and soak up the atmosphere.

Castres... a busy town that boasts a Goya museum.

Limoux... home of sparkling white wine, the inspiration for Champagne.

Rennes Le Chateau... a mystical centre, supposed site of the Holy Grail and other treasures.

Castelnaudary... well known for being the birth place of cassoulet - a savoury stew of different kinds of meat baked with beans in the oven. The historic Canal du Midi which connects the Atlantic to the Mediterranean sea, forms a large basin in the town from which you can hire boats or go for boat trips - a very leisurely way to travel!

Sorèze... home of the Abbey School of Sorèze which in the 17th century was the largest school in France.

Lavaur... charming with its grand Gothic cathedral, brick houses, fountains and squares.

Narbonne... within easy reach are the beaches of the Mediterranean, Narbonne is a lively market town potent with history of the Romans.
