The walled city of Carcassonne stands high on a hill above the River
Aude, overlooking the valley of Lauragais and the lush Minervois vineyards.
It is Europe's largest fortified citadel, each stone a mute witness
to its romantic past.
Standing between two historic landmarks, the Roman Château Comtal
and the Gothic Basilica of Saint-Nazaire, the Hôtel de la Cité
is set in its own glorious gardens. With its solid stone walls, wood
panelling and stained-glass windows, the Hotel offers luxurious hospitality.
