Places to stay near Carcassonne

We plan on visiting Carcassonne in October for an afternoon.

We'd like to find a place to stay in some small town near

Carcassonne or at least between Carcassone and the Spanish border (Our base is Barcelona. We're renting a car for four days and hope to drive to a few nice places, including Carcassonne and return to Barcelona)

I Carcassonne is full of tourists and that the hotels would be overpriced. In addition, I much prefer small hotels or inns or bed and breakfasts.

Any ideas?

Have you thought about Mirepoix? this is a charming bastide town, about 40 kms south of Carcassonne. It is an interesting town, restaurants, a beautiful market square and several hotels. We styaed there for 2 weeks, it made a great base.

I would also recommend MIREPOIX - it is a pretty town with lovely medieval buidings in the square, where they have a wonderful market. Would highly recommend 'Le Commerce' (Logis de france) - has charming open air courtyard/restaurant. We had 2 lovely meals there in June. Logis's pretty reliable for food etc anyway.

Thanks for your replies. I'll see about Mirepoix.

Has anyone gone to Lagrasse?

I found it on the Logis de France website and it's allegedly one of the most beautiful villages in France and for our purposes very close (about 36 km) to Carcassonne

Lagrasse is indeed very nice. Don't miss the abbey.

Thanks for your response.

Do you have any ideas on places to stay in Lagrasse.

I've read about Hostellerie Corbiers.

Has anyone stayed there?

If it's full are there other places in Lagrasse?

I'd recommed Narbonne, it's a pleasant little town in its own right, bisected by the Canal de la Robine (a branch of the Canal du Midi)

http://www.narbonne.com/

It's also where the autoroute to Carcasonne joins the coastal autoroute from Barcelona, so is perfectly located for you!

I also recommend this hotel, where I stayed for a week in early 2002

Have a good trip.

Perhaps you have already found somewhere to stay by now, but just in case you change your mind about staying in Carcassone itself, have a look at this B&B www.maison-coste.com. It looks beautiful on the website and very reasonably priced.

Thanks for the information about Maison Coste.

Did you stay there?

How far is it from the Cite?

Re maison Coste - we stayed there in June this year and I have posted comments on this forum (it is probably under B and B heading). It is indedd lovely, only about 4 room s- very large, beautifully decorated. The website gives a very true impression of the rooms and set-up. I don't know where they let you park your car (we had already dropped ours off). We thought it was extremely charming. Please ask if you would like more commetns/info. It is about 15 minutesd alk to the old city, and is located in the so-called "new" part (which isn't "new" at all) and close to lovely restuarants (they recommended one to us and we loed it).
