Base for day trips around Carcassonne

Jump to last reply

We will be driving from the Cahors area and planned to be in Carcassonne by early evening when everyone says it is best. We have three nights. I am at a loss as to how to plan this.
Three nights, two full days in the Carcassonne area(arriving on a Monday evening and departing on Thursday morning), what would you do? We are looking at a circle from Carcassonne south and over to Pepignan, Narbonne, Caunes-Minnervois. Is it recommended to stay in a central location for these areas and take two day trips? Would we be better off staying in Carcassonne and driving out from there? We don't want to try and do too much but enjoy where we are. We just don't know where to be.

After the third night in the Carcassonne area we plan to drive to Arles/St. Remy and be in that area for five nights.

Thank you for your help?
