We did a little road trip down to the South Of France from the Dordogne, stopping of in Carcassonne to spend the night.

Despite perhaps relying a little too heavily on tourism these days - the old area is very busy and commercial, if you have any children with a penchant for waving a wooden sword about and donning a tabard, then this is the place for you.
