Group accommodation in Carcassonne

9 Entries

Our group accommodation in Carcassonne, the immaculately preserved medieval walled city, sets groups right in the middle of its array of attractions and sights. Stood proudly atop a hill above the River Aude – this French city really is nothing short of something straight out of a fairy-tale. Carcassonne is divided into two separate sections – the Cité de Carcassonne - the fortress settlement, and the lower town just outside the fortress. The city is overflowing with rich history and culture and stands as a firm favourite among school groups on history trips to France due to its two millennia of history. The area has been settled since Neolithic times, but the Romans arrived in approximately 100BC and since then Carcassonne has been continually occupied, through renovations brought the city back to its former glory in the 1800’s. Whether you’re on a group trip to Carcassonne with your family, friends, club or students – a stay in our Carcassonne group hostel allows you to sit right in the centre of this glorious historical remnant. Step back in time and explore the 12th century Chateau Comtal, admiring the views from the top of the ramparts, spotting the Basilica de St Nazaire's gargoyles or watching a medieval jousting match.
