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.

It has walnut, fig and olive trees in the garden. Sara was excellent meeting us at the property and settling us in. The property is purpose built so no old quirks. The kitchen is huge and lovely to cook in. The living room is small and cosy and the bedrooms are nicely furnished. We stayed as a couple; this property really lends itself to a romantic break. It is also very central only 30 mins from Carcassonne so perfect for a group base. We would not hesitate to recommend.

Beautiful place to stay, very nicely decorated, clean and comfortable with amazing views from the windows. Jenny and her husband were lovely hosts and very helpful in providing information about where to eat and places to visit and even let us use their bikes for a ride by the side of the canal du midi Absolutely loved having the use of the pool as the weather was very hot. So many places to visit nearby. Particularly enjoyed visiting 'la cite', Carcassone, Gruissan, Castlenaudary and the villages of Caunes Minervois. Would highly recommend this property.
