We only popped in for a looksie and a reconnoitre. What we found is an exceptional space with gothic-corridor-gallery leading into the lounge. Antiques,suits of armour and artworks litter the heavy wooded interior.
But it is the garden,that is the knock-out. It is astride the city walls with a captivating view over the entire Carcassone valley and beyond.
We had tea under a massive tree near the pool and lounging chairs. The staff were exceptionly pleasant and even let us have a peek at room 308 ,with its four-poster bed, amazing furnishings and superb views. The hotel boasts a world famous restaurant... la Barbacane.
