Places to Visit on Holiday in Saissac, France

There is a great deal to see and do in the Languedoc Roussillon region. Once the base for the Cathar religion which was all but wiped out in a series of crusades, the remains of many castles and fortifications bear testament to those times. Saissac itself has a Chateau which is slowly being restored, and this gives a taste of others in the area.

Arguably the largest complete fortification in Europe, it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A day here is time well spent indeed. Further south, the Pyrenees are an hour and a half’s drive away, and offer a completely different terrain with fantastic views.

You enter the property through gates at the caretakers house and drive up a tree lined driveway to a circular driveway outside the house. The design of the house is such that you enter through the front door and go immediately up the stairs to the living area of the house (or you could walk up the slope at the side of the house that will take you around to the pool area) We only used 4 of the 5 bedrooms so there was plenty of room There is a lovely bright living room. The kitchen is fine with all the appliances you could need (especially a nice coffee maker that went down well with us) The best feature of the house and the one that got most use is the pool area The pool was lovely and nicely heated. It was nice to chill out by the pool with a glass of wine as dusk came on and watch the occasional bat swoop down. There is free wifi that is picked up in the dining room and pool area but does not extend to the bedrooms The house is very close to the airport and a big shopping centre where you can pick up plenty of cheap wine! Also it’s only a few km’s from Carcassonne city and near to such nice towns as Lagrasse, Limoux and especially Montsegur which is well worth a visit for the climb up to the old ruins. The view is remarkable and the walk/climb which only takes about 30 minutes is not too arduous. If I was coming back to this area I would definitely consider this property again
