SEMINARS IN THE MEDIEVAL CITADEL

Our strength: We create and plan with you various scenarios customized to fit your needs and your budget.

 

DESTINATION

 

Come and discover – in the South of France at just an hour’s drive from Toulouse airport – one of the most majestic medieval fortresses in Europe. The Citadel of Carcassonne offers you the privilege of being part of a unique and historic locality. All the meticulous planning required for the organization of a seminar or an incentive trip combines subtly and works perfectly with the enchanting change of scene provided by this historic site.

The architectural authenticity of its ramparts, its narrow cobbled streets, the Count’s Castle, the Basilica; the cultural immersion into the history of the monument through guided visits – every aspect of the citadel will take you back into the depths of the Middle Ages.


Walking along the cobblestones which have echoed from time immemorial with the footsteps of its inhabitants and of history lovers, at the corner of one narrow street after the other, you will discover historic houses with ivy-covered stone walls, a sunny little square around a well full of legends that one would like to discover, the Count’s Castle where the last Catholic Count perished for having accepted the Cathars in his citadel, the Basilica which, apparently, is the resting place of the 13th-century Bishop Razouls (or Radulphe) and of Bishop Pierre de Rochefort (1300 – 1321)…

The choice of hotels and restaurants is varied and adapts to all kinds of budgets. Located very close one to the other, the hotels and restaurants allow you to move from one to the other without using a car, all the better to enjoy the variety of pleasures they offer.
At our restaurants La Vicomté, the Brasserie Le Donjon and the outdoor summer restaurant the Jardin de l’Evêque, you will discover the flavours of traditional regional cuisine.
Our fine-dining restaurant La Barbacane, awarded one star in the Michelin Guide, invites you to classic French gastronomy with Chef Jérôme Ryon’s personal inspiration
Finally, for a delightful and instructive wine break, the vinotheque Comptoir des Vins & Terroirs has a variety of wine-tasting proposals to suggest
Along with your seminars or meetings and as defined by your budget, we can organise a range of entertaining cultural activities which will give the added magic touch to a unique seminar.
