Heading West Again
August 3, 2017 - Carcassonne, France
We had always planned that Capestang would be our turnaround point this year.   We took several days to journey slowly from Narbonne to Capestang, and then once skipper had done his bus-and-train trick to pick up the car we were  able to do some exploring by car.   The highlight was definitely our day at the Abbey of Fontfroide. This former Cistercian Abbey lies in a beautiful valley south west of Narbonne   The Cistercians left at the beginning of the 20th Century and as the Abbey began...

Carcassonne 2017
June 6, 2017 - Carcassonne, France
We are now in Carcassonne again.   We have a favoured mooring spot between the lock by Marengo bridge and the SNCF lock and we were lucky enough to be allocated it once more.   Today is market day and so we nipped up to the market in the Bastide Saint-Louis which we found a bit lacklustre, though we did manage to find some tasty looking sausages in the Halle.   We then finally succeeded in having a meal at Le Cathare, a restaurant we have been trying to eat at since last year.   We had a...

Serignan Plage to Carcassonne
June 25, 2012 - Carcassonne, France
Rather than face a 90km ride in high heat, we loaded up all the bikes into the camper van at 8am and shaved 40km off by driving from Serignan Plage to Cuxac-d'Aude. We then started what turned out to be a lovely ride along the Canal du Midi through the Aude Valley. We saw a large wine chateau in Ventehac-en-Minervois, and then branched out onto smaller roads to try and avoid the busy D6113. This took ages of course, and the baking heat and strong head wind started to take its toll. We...

Calm down dear ND all that..
January 20, 2012 - Carcassonne, France
  Frustration would be the overarching feeling of the past couple of days. Looking at a map the area between Arles and Montpellier has windy written all over it, the Camargue. Miles of nothing manages to scrape it a three star rating on my map, the riding is not so different from the fens around Cambridge with the absence of Ely cathedral. For whatever reason it appeared the Mistral was taking a day off and the ride was really very inoffensive. Little did I know that my frustrations were...

Carcassonne
March 17, 2009 - Carcassonne, France
 Carcassonne was recomended as a place to visit and when we checked the guide books it had two of Carcassonne's sites to visit so it became a must. Our site unfortunately was a little more out of town than we had anticipated and when caught in traffic, felt even longer. It hadn't started well... and was unfortunately going to get worse. We went to 3 different pitches before we got settled. The first pitch was too lumpy, the second pitch had no water or 'leccie facilities but the third was...
