LANGUEDOC – Impressive Jewel of the region, Carcassonne …

Carcassonne

The Languedoc is often spoken about as the ‘real’ south of France, with its rugged mountains, spectacular gorges and elegant cities. This is a region with a fascinating heritage and this ancient, walled city of Carcassonne is no exception.

Today the fabulously restored hill top castle should definitely be on your “must see in France” list – a medieval citadel, famous for its 53 towers and double walled fortifications. Remnants of the city date back to Gallo-Roman times with further additions made to it in the 13th and 14th century.

Three hours south east of Bordeaux and just 150km from Montpellier, Carcassonne is a great location from which to enjoy both the sunshine and great skiing. Leggett has some fabulous properties of all prices for sale in this region, see: Languedoc Properties
