Base in Carcassonne? Or what would you do instead?

Jump to last reply

Here is what I'm thinking:
4 nights, 3 1/2 days based at a B&B that has excellent reviews on trip advisor.
It is not in the cite but within a 5 min or so walk, and has a nice view from the B&B.

I have read a lot of the threads on this forum regarding NOT staying in Carcassonne, but this is not technically in the cite.

One day we would visit Abbey de Fontfroide & Narbonne along with a drive along the coast possibly as far as Collioure.
One day relax at the B&B and a cruise on the Canal Midi.
One day Carcassone in the morning-drive to ? to explore more Cather castles.
This is in late May, after 1 week in the Dordogne (2nd time) & 5 days in Provence (6th time).
This will be the first time in Languedoc region.
What do you think?
Is this really a bad idea?
