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.

Jason met us at the airport and showed us around the apartment, before dropping us off at the supermarket to stock up. He also gave us some great recommendations for restaurants. The apartment itself is full of character, with lots of lovely old beams, but also modern and contemporary and well equipped, with very comfortable beds. It was also spotlessly clean. The covered roof terrace with views across the rooftops and up to the Cité is lovely. We enjoyed exploring all areas of Carcassonne (Cité, Bastide, Aude river and Canal du Midi) on foot; everything is easily accessible from the apartment and there are trains/buses if you want to travel further afield. We would thoroughly recommend trying La Crêperie Le Blé Noir for excellent pancakes; the owner is a real character too! We needed to pre-book a table, even in October. At La Grande Bouffe we had the best steak ever, cooked over an open fire; the meat was simply presented, very tender and full of flavour. We also visited Au Lard et au Cochon, but found the food rather fatty and a bit lacking in flavour there. L'Auberge des Lices in the Cité has a more formal atmosphere; the homemade cassoulet is excellent (as was all the other food there). Carcassonne itself is characterful and quirky, and the famous fortified city and castle with their fairytale appearance are well worth a visit.

Carcassonne is perfect for a couples' trip - so much to see and do with great places to eat and drink. The house was the perfect base. Returning home in the evening to cook dinner in the cosy kitchen diner was always a pleasure and we had the best sleeps in the enormous bed. Only downside is that parking is a bit of a pain.

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.
