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. Perhaps the most significant fortification, though, is known as La Cite, situated in the town of Carcassonne. 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.

En 1er lieu, je me dois de parler de l'accueil : exceptionnel et chaleureux. Ensuite du gite : de grandes pièces, très propres, avec une cheminée qui fonctionne à merveille. Et après être arrivés dans la soirée, nous avons été sidérés le lendemain de découvrir face à nous la chaîne des Pyrénées enneigée, magnifique. Les enfants (7 à 14 ans) se sont précipités dans le jardin pour profiter des jeux extérieurs mis à notre disposition (balançoires, ping-pong, badmington, fléchettes,...). Au moment de partir à la fin de notre week end, cela a été un déchirement tant les enfants s'étaient imaginés que nous étions en vacances. Merci à Vicky et Neil. A bientôt

The gite is dog friendly and our dogs certainly enjoyed their stay as much as we did. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. There is plenty to do in the area, including the most incredible castles built on high rocky outcrops, medieval villages and towns, the Canal du midi, to name but a few. We will certainly be returning to explore some more of the area.
