Apart from the old town itself : Cathar catles, Limoux, Rennes-le-Chateau, Castres, Albi, Toulouse etc... I suggest you read the Michelin Green Guide of the area.

Truffle and mushroom walks in Villeneuve Minervois. Is a great day out and very interesting.

A walk around Lastours is a great day with the camera ...

I recommend that you send away for a very handy guide written by a man who lives in the area - Trevor Park. His guide to Carcassonne and the surrounding area is very reasonably priced, available online (just do a quick search under his name and 'Carcassonne') and contains some excellent ideas for local tours. We have a little house in Carcassonne that we rent out to guests, many of them have bought Trevor's book and agreed that the suggested tours were very good. Hope you have a magical stay!

We enjoyed both Foix and Mirepoix ... drive up to Andorra if you have time.

I will be staying in Carcassonne on Friday night. Friends suggest the Saturday market should not be missed.

Carcassonne is rich in history and culture and time should be taken to fully appreciate what this lovely city has to offer, both within the walls of the bastide, known as the 'new town' and la cité itself easily accessed over le pont vieux with a beautiful walk along the River Aude. The market as mpprh suggests should not be missed, A lovely time of year to take a cycle trip along the Canal du Midi too. Enjoy your trip !

Our family (parents & two 20+ sons) will be in France in Sept. 2012. Would your "little house in Carcassone" be suitable for us? Please reply with particulars.
