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.

The pool was excellent with good shade. Two of the rooms were amazing. Superb decoration, spacious, lovely modern tiled floors. The air con in these two rooms was very quiet and effective. The bathroom and en suite toilets and showers were beautiful. Living area a good size , well equipped. Kitchen was surprisingly small but adequate. More large pots would have been appreciated for the size of our party. The other two bedrooms were ok. The main balcony /terrace is large with stunning views. We had a lovely holiday. The area has such a lot to offer. We enjoyed a day canoeing, Carcasonne city itself. A visit to Chateau de Pennautier. A beautiful anniversary meal in le Jardin en ville in Carcasonne new town was a hidden gem and a great find. Collin's, Aragon for a coffee or glass of wine and lovely view was appreciated. We would certainly choose this property again ! A wonderful time was had by all :)

The pool is a further away from the house and is also bigger than it looks online. Our teenage kids spent most of their time in the pool, but there was also plenty of space to play badmington and frisbee - the garden is huge. The property is located up in the hills above the plains where Carcassonne is located. We did the big shopping there and then topped up on bread locally day to day. The boulangerie in Montelieu was open on Sunday but not Monday. The house is remote and peaceful - part of its appeal for us. It was really hot so we didn't walk as much as we thought we would! The beds were comfy and we slept well when we weren't out looking at all the stars we could see in the pitch black nights. The property has good wifi and British TV for evening entertainment. We felt quite at home and had a wonderful time.
