Things to Do on Holiday in Saissac, France

There is good fishing to be had in the immediate area of the village, and cyclists may enjoy an afternoon out on the road.

With forests and meadows surrounding the village, hikers will always be able to find somewhere new to walk, and nature lovers can see some interesting wildlife.

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.

Weather in Saissac, France

Saissac features an almost Mediterranean climate, with the hottest months being July and August. Temperatures during this time can regularly hit over 30 degrees Celsius during the day. Winters are mild, with day time temperatures of around 10 degrees, although this can fall to low single digits at night. Precipitation is heaviest during December with over 100mm falling, whilst during the summer, July has the least amount of rainfall at just 50mm. Holidays in Saissac can be taken at any time of year, but are overwhelmingly more popular during the summer.

Magical moments in La Petite Maison in Carcassonne

5 of 5
Despite some initial difficulties due to our late arrival, once we eventually got to La Petite Maison they were quickly forgotten. The photos do not lie. It is a delightful little house, as cosy and romantic as Shelley described it. Although we didn't use it, there is a lovely little terrace.Everything has been carefully thought out to make guests feel comfortable and at home, with an abundance of useful information from places to visit, how to get to them on foot and by other means it transport, as well as restaurant recommendations. The only criticism is no television, not from me, but by husband. However there was a lovely variety of CDs, and you can connect to the Internet to watch online movies, news etc.(Although secretly, I know my husband would have liked the option of television.) it is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The location is fantastic being right in the middle of Carcassonne. Shopping is practically on the doorstep, and places to visit within easy walking distance. Even parking is not a problem, as it is free from 6.00pm until 9.00am, and you can find places to park for free in the streets a bit further away, although we never needed to.

Lovely house, very comfortable and well equipped

4 of 5
The accommodation was very well equipped, clean and comfortable. We had three children and three adults and felt very at home in the cottage. The garden is secure and large for the children to play in, there is a selection of toys and bikes free to use. The pool is a good size although even when heated was a little to cold, but this is October in the summer I would think it would be perfect. The complementary wine on arrival was very welcome. Saissac is a beautiful little village with stunning views, only down side was again as we visited in October the cafes were only open for lunch. We will return one year in the summer and rate this holiday with 5 stars.

Fantastic.

5 of 5
Lovely apartment, very well fitted out and very nice feel to it. Fantastic view of Le cite, as the apartment is right at the bottom of it. Parking tricky round about so it was great to have a garage although pleased we turned down the hire car upgrade as it was good to have a smaller car to manoeuvre in. Hosts lovely and very welcoming. We found lots to do round about and the history, scenery and caves and gorges were stunning. Can't wait to return to this area.
