Another great stay in Carcassonne ! We must try it now in another
season with different weather. So easy to reach by train from

In spite of the heat we enjoyed ourselves very much. Especially
market day Saturday and beach Leucate which we returned to Sunday
Faye, David, Oscar, Georgia and Harri, Devon, England,
Nos ha gustad mucho Carcassonne. La Cité es espectacular,
tanto de dia como de noche, pero ademias el canal del midi y el
resto de la ciudad es como un pueblo grande, muy diferentr donde
vivímos (Barcelona) que es una gran ciudad.
Los habitantes nos han tantao con cariño y nos hemos sentido
muy agosto en todos los sentidos (seguridad, amabilidad etc.)
En el loft hemos muy comodos y nos ha gustado mucho, lastina
que solo henas estado dos noches y no henos pudodo disfrutar de
él, pero en otra ocasión serà. Gracias Sophie.
Familia Zamora, Agosto 2011, Barcelona, Spain
We loved Carcassonne and think your apartment is excellent too.
We've been welcomed at the Divine Comedy, climbed up Peyreperteuse
and taken some splendid photos.
Peter, Elaine, Lyndsey and Jon, UK, August 2011
Thank you for having us as guests in your beautiful apartment.
We felt more like citizens than just tourists. We just did the
tourist highlights and will come back for 'extras'. Carcassonne
is more beautiful than we already expected !
Dante, Aurélie, Marije and Erik, Delft, Holland,
We enjoyed our stay very much. A beautiful town. Loved the town
square. Would love to spend longer here.
Colin, Geoff and Trudy, NSW, Australia, July 2011
At the end of our holiday here in Carcassonne, we have enjoyed
it very much. Thank you to all the previous visitors for all their
recommendations. We hired bikes and cycled along the canal - the
tip is to go for the comfort bikes with the large brown seats
we managed to cycle 50 kms on them dinner at le Côte Ferm
wad our favourite. La Jardin d'Eté on the way to La Cité
is great too. Good pizzas.
Paul, Zofija, Sam and Maddie, Argyll, Scotland,
We have really enjoyed our stay in Carcassonne ! The apartment
is comfortable and so pleasant to relax in after sight seeing.
It is bright and tastefully decorated in a modern yet traditional
French style. We enjoyed the boat trip on the Canal du Midi, we
hired bicycles and rambled alongside the river Aude, taking time
for a picnic. We loved eating in the bistro near the hotel Terminus
just before the railway station. The lunch menu is the best value,
it gets full marks for variety, presentation and excellent service.
We also enjoyed a meal in La Coté ferme. It was a new concept
in dining. The deli next to it is wonderful for cheese, ham etc.There
is a great fish shop on this street up on the left opposite les
Halles which is a great indoor food market. The boulangerie opposite
La Ferme deli is worth a daily visit.
The location of this apartment cannot go without mention - everything
is so easy to reach. We strolled up to la Cité three times
- it took 15 minutes. Each time there was something new. For example
there is a small military museum just beyond the turn towards
the castle. A veteran gave us a personal tour and spoke of the
experiences of his family and neighbours - after seeing the bayonets
there, I looked at the toy swords in the shops around the city
in a different way. The service in the shops was excellent and
the restaurant La Cortine deserves comment for good quality and
service. We enjoyed the festival especially the free Cajan recital
in Saint Nazaire and St Vincent. World class events in a unique
setting. After a busy day it was good to return to the apartment
and relax while talking over our experiences. We enjoyed too the
books and DVD's .
We will highly recommend a visit to Carcassonne to our friends.
Colin and Rosemary, Dublin, Ireland, July 2011
Had a great week in Carcassonne. Fantastic apartment bright
and airy. Toulouse worth a visit easy by train. Would recommend
following the route in the Michelin book as you see all the best
bits. Also recommend lunch at the Mangevins eccentric but
very welcoming host and excellent food 12 :00 - 13 :00
hrs only. Closed all of August !
In no particular order we recommend :-
- See the city and Pont Vieux lit up around 10.30 from the Pont
- Le Bar a Vivres for lunchtime delicious pizza and tarts. Just
at the end of Pont Vieux
- La Tete de lArt along the Trivalle good supper
venue nice ambiance
- The Sixth Sense on this road ! lovely supper
off fixed menu
- Cemetery (just north of railway station) good views
of the Cité, and peaceful spot
- Lovely walk to the lake from the apartment take your
lunch and go via La Cité (lac du Cavayère)
Very friendly chilled town. Will return. Thanks to Sophie too,
for providing great accommodation within a stones
throw of everything..sur roof-top hide away for a week.
Off to Collioure now to cook for a week in 30 degrees heat.
Hilary and Ian, Cambridge, UK, June 2011
Really enjoyed our time here in your apartment. Great base for
town and country. Thanks for the welcome. Ate at La Ferme
food OK main courses better than tapas. Wine great especially
white Minervois. Amazing food and wine in the adjoining delicatessen.
Be back soon. Great place for running. Good route is left out
of the apartment down rue Basse, along the river towards Pont
Vieux, all around la Cité there is a path, down to the
river, towards railway bridge. Another one is along the canal
towards Trebes. Bike hire at Evasion2 is also good.
If you like a late lunch the bistro opposite the gare does all
day food. Dont order the giant salad, its too big but its
Tony, Cork. Ireland, June 2011
We have shared some special evenings eating out and enjoying
the casual atmosphere of the apartment. Eating in and celebrating
Johns birthday. We were not disappointed with the wonderful
ancient city. So sad to be leaving. Our very happy son and his
girlfriend flew out today and we are still to enjoy more delights
of this wonderful country.
Thanks to Sophie for the help you gave us with our bags on arrival.
We were a little stressed due to our airport run. Thank you for
being so considerate.
Sad to leave. We had a super time.
p.s. La Ferme was excellent plus we loved the beach setting at
La Franqui by sea. Only 1 hour and 10 minutes plus bought some
lovely Fitou wine back.
John and Suzie, Shropshire, UK, June 2011
Thank you so much Sophie a truly beautiful 'home from
home' - Well certainly be back. The apartment beats ALL
the hotels hands down.
Perfectly located for the Old Square and all its
wonderful bars and restaurants and fine walk to the Medieval city
(or an 8 Euro taxi !)
Thank you for the recommendation of restaurant La Ferme
(out main door, left and left again). Sensational food and wines.
Thanks again (and see you soon).
Marie, Angela, Pat, Forbes and Caroline, Nottingham,
UK, June 2011
We had a wonderful week with great weather (red noses). Enjoyed
the perfect location of the apartment.
Places to recommend : -
- Gruissan (near Narbonne) Fishermen village. Very beautiful.
- Lastours (18 kms from Carcassonne) take good shoes for hiking
(5 Euros entrance).
- Boat trip on the canal du midi.
Definitely want to return in the future. Many thanks for a great
time in this apartment.
Erich, Veronika, Nura and Alexandra, Austria, May
We have had a wonderful week in Carcassonne. Thank you Sophie
for the care and thought you have put into the apartment to make
our stay so comfortable and welcoming. We loved the food, wine,
restaurants, beaches, chateaux, castles and scenery. Weather was
perfect. The location was great (so was the shopping !).
Castles Carcassonne Cité train ride is good
Saissac wonderful pizza and man who knows all about good
Beziers the cathedral seen from the Pont Vieux is spectacular.
Markets Saturday in the square is definitely the best but
the meat and fish in Les Halles' are great and the people
are really friendly (dont leave it too late in the morning
p.s. Everyone was very friendly.
Luke, Gemma and Matilda, London, April 2011
We have had a great time and the apartment was wonderful. Loved
Carcassonne and the surrounding area. We will be recommending
you to our friends, particularly our friends at petanque who often
travel through France. Thank you so much.
Geoffrey and Jennifer, Melbourne, Australia, April
We had a wonderful weekend in Carcassonne. The location of the
apartment is brilliant, wonderful sights and exquisite food just
around the corner ! La Cité is no longer than 15 minutes
away by foot. And the first view and the fortress from the Pont
Vieux is breathtaking. We can definitely recommend the restaurant
La Sixième Sense just up the street, wonderful food
and great service. We will definitely return here.
Dustin, Erin, Liam, Mirda, USA and Holland, February,
Nous avons passé une agréable semaine en famille.
L'appartement est très spacieux, lumineux et pratique pour
les enfants. Nous n'avons que peu profité de la terrasse
à cause de la météo un peu trop fraîche.
La ville du Carcassonne est agréable et la cité
est vraiment très impressionnants. Les enfants ont particulièrement
apprécié la visite des remparts. Nous conseillons
la visite du Moulin á Papier très instructive (mais
que francophone je pense !).
Albi vaut également le détour avec ses briques
rouges et ses rues piétonnes. Ce serait bien d'ailleurs
qu'il y ait plus de voies piétonnes dans le centre de Carcassonne
car les trottoirs sont peu praticable avec un poussette - cela
étant, nous sommes bien reposés, changé les
idées et nous recommanderons votre appartement, idéalement
situé, a nos amis.
R, T, E & D, Paris, Octobre 2010
... We have had a wonderful week, and the flat is lovely
historic buildings to explore, and super walks in countryside
around town. Gudrun especially enjoyed the books and films.
Thanks to Sophie and Carcassonne for a relaxing break.
A &D, M &A, G & I, Edinburgh
Scotland, October 2010
Had a wonderful stay - location of apartment excellent - central
to the whole area. Lovely to get away from the English weather
to enjoy the French way of life.
Linda, Allan, Christine and Jerome,
UK, September 2010
Fantastic apartment and location. Beautiful old town. Had a great
time here, the location was perfect for the wedding we were attending.
Mick, Sarah, Daniel and Emily, Shropshire,
UK, October 2010
Excellent location, apartment really well equipped. Had a great
time here, will definitely be back.
M, D and M Gonagle, Galway, Ireland,
We has a wonderful stay in Carcassonne! Experienced most sites
in the area, including one leg of Tour de France ! The fireworks
on the 14th were unbelievable and I believe we have tried most
of the wines from the area. The apartment is perfect for us, two
couples and two 16 year old girls ! Sophie thanks for the herbs.
L, K, E and M, Trondheim, Norway,
Had a lovely stay. Apartment excellent, weather brill, Inside
the Medieval Cite fantastic had some lovely meals and will come
Sheila and Eric, July 2010
What a wonderful apartment. It far exceeded our expectations.
The location is perfect and we were blessed with marvellous weather.
From breakfast on the terrace to sinking into most comfortable
beds at night we have had a really lovely holiday. Will definitely
return here to see more of this fascinating city.
A and J, London, UK, June 2010
Had a wonderful stay and thought the apartment was excellent.
Hired bicycles from down by the train station and travelled along
the canal which was a great day out.
M, J, D and H, Leeds, West Yorkshire,
UK, May 2010
We have enjoyed your bright, airy peaceful penthouse. As well
it is convenient for walking or driving. We appreciate also the
authentic spirit of the decor. Even on rainy days the sun shone
through at 5pm !
C and J Wilson, Perth, Ontario, Canada,
Sophie; We have enjoyed our stay at Christmas in Carcassonne
in your beautiful penthouse apartment. It is so bright and cheery
on grey winter days. The bed and linens are divine! We have walked
and enjoyed this ideal location.
Alex & Mina, from Canada, December
Great weather, and all the countryside was superb in the autumn
sunshine. The trip down to Peyreperteuse and Queribus casteles
was excellent, even if we did get lost on the way back to Lagrasse,
which looked terrific at dusk. Narbonne also a good trip.
Carcassonne and the flat were also excellent .
Mick, Breda, Sam & Siniad, England,
Excellent weather. Apartment worked well for five of us. The
de Trèbes , just past Trèbes Boat Centre (maybe
a quarter of a mile on) was the gastronomic hihghlight(it's on
the Canal du Midi, follow the towpath to the next lock).
Chrispin et al, UK, October 2009
Carcassonne is very beautiful. Recommend a visit to the Cité
- we saw an amazing choral group in the cathedral. Place Carnot
perfect for a drink or meal + watching the world go by.
Jim, Val & Don, England, September
Great apartment - plenty of room for 2 adults and 4 large boys
(18, 16, 14, 12 years old).Loved being at the centre of things...
I enjoyed nipping out early to get fresh bread, croissants etc
for breakfast. The boysenjoyed the sightseeing in Cité
and Bastide. We highly recommend the jousting show.
We were without a car, but with [railway] station and buses handy,
it's not a problem - we caught the number 1 bus to Lac de Cavayère
where we all enjoyed the sandy beach, the gravel beach, a walk
around the lake (1-1 ½ hours), pedalos and the most impossible
mini-golf we have ever played! We also went to the [Medterranean]
beach - train to La Franqui changing at Narbonne - beware the
first part of the journey needed a reservation but as we bought
the tickets from a machine we were unaware of this. The conductor
kindly allowed the dumb foreigners to proceed although 2 of us
had to stand. But t was a good journey and the train going across
the etang spectacular. Huge expanses of beach at La Franqui -
but not many facilities.
Also canal trip highly recommended - we had a lovely wooden boat
and the guide's commentary was very interesting. We took the tour
that went west through 2 locks.
We would like to come again - and so would the boys!!
Arminel, Anthony, Oliver, Hugh, Edward
& William, England,
A lovely apartment served as a great base for a great holiday.
La Cité and the Lac de Caveyer are well recommended. There
is also a fantastic Spanish festival at theend of August which
must be visited if you are lucky enough to be here at that time.
There are performers, food stalls and plenty of sangria!
Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Jack, Simon, Ross & Nai, August
Would totally agree [with the previous entry]. The Medieval
Cité isalso worth a look. Apartment was just what we needed
for a relaxing & fun holiday - would well recommend.
Thanks to all who helped make it a great experience.
Dan, Maria, Michael & Harry,
Ireland, August 2009
Thisis my first attempt at booking a holiday - actually, booking
anything - over the internet and I have to say it has been a wonderful
experience. The description of the apartment is spot on, and to
arriveand have Sophie to deal with our queries was very re-assuring.
Carcassonne is a fabulous place for a family holiday, especially
as we didn't want to hire a car. Public transport is easy and
everyone we came in contact with has been more than pleasant and
helpful, particularly with out bad school-French The lake isdefinitely
worth a visit - we didn't realise there was a café at it
until our second trip there!
Steve, Emily, Ciara & Gillian,
Ireland, August 2009
... We had an absolutely fantastic holiday! Blessed with great
weather. We were delighted with the apartment as it isso central
to everywhere and it had everything we needed for cooking and
relaxing. It meant so much to us that it was spotless.
We really enjoyed the atmosphere at the market days in the nearby
square on Tuesdays, Thursdays and biggest market day and best
one is Saturday mornings. All the lovely fresh fruit and vegetables
were excellent value and went down a treat!
A great day out is to get the number 1 public bus at the Dome
bus stop which takes you to "L'Auree de Lac" which is
a man-made beach which is ideal for swimming and they have boats
for hire. They also have an excellent adventure park there. Take
thw number 1 bus to the bus terminus to bring you to beach and
adventure park. Bus fare €1.20 single journey. Bus timetables
in tourist office nearby.
We strongly recommend a vist to the castle and the old city of
Carcassonne which is within the castle walls. Knights on horses
show well worth seeing. We enjoyed a 2¾ hour cruise on
the canal which included 1 hour picnic. sincere appreciation Sophie
for a great holiday!
Mike, Trish & Paul, Ireland,
July- August 2009
Many thanks for a lovely stay in your wonderful apartment. It
is a pleasure to stay in such a bright well equipped "home
from home". we had 5 great nights here and really enjoyed
the daily excursions - Airbus factory in Toulouse and water canyoning
outside Quillan. From start to finish, our booking reservations
etc was friendly and efficient and we thank you so much for that.
The Ward Family, Ireland, July 2009
We have had a fabulous week here in the apartment, which is
such a perfect base from which to explore the town and surrounding
area. Having spent the previous week on a long-boat on the canal,
the light and spaciousness of the flat - not to mention the comfortable
bed - has been really welcome.
The weather has been excellent. almost entirely sunny, but not
so hot that we needed to close the door & windows to use the
... On Tuesday & Wednesday we cycled out into the countryside,
having hired bikes from "Evasion 2 Roues" at 85 Alée
d'Iena. The bike hire was quite expensive at 60 Euros for 2 bikes
for 2 days as we didn't qualify for weekend or all-week discounts.
... On Tuesday we cycled North and east to Conques-sur-Orbiel,
Bagnoles, Malvies-en-Minervois, Bonilhonnae and Trèbes,
returning along the tow-track along the Canal [du Midi] ...
On Wednesday we cycled South into some really pretty (and hilly!)
countryside. an altogether more ambitious ride past La Cité,
Cazilac, Cavanac, Couffoulens, Corrèze, St-Hlaire and along
the official scenic route to Limoux ... Shortly before Limoux
we passed the vineyard which claims to have been producing "Champagne"
- called "Blanquette de Limoux" - for around 500
years predating Champagne. On arrival in the lovely square
in Limoux we were able to try it ...
... This morning we bought a selection of wonderful fish for
lunch at the poissoniere two blocks along from the apartment and
discovered the indoor market opposite in Les Halles ... well worth
a visit for your meat and fish having bought your fruit &
veg from the market in Place Carnot.
Oh - almost forgot that we were lucky enough to arrive in Carcassonne
just in time for the music fete on midsummer's day, where we ate,
drank and danced until midnight to live music in Place Carnot.
Thanks to Sophie for providing the base for such a memorable
week! We may well come and do it again!
Jez & Ali , from England, June
Loved Quillan and the castles, Mirepoix, Limoux, and Lagrasse.
The castle and markets [in Carcassonne] are fantastic.
Phil & Lee + Mick & Lisa
, from Australia, June 2009
We have had a wonderful time in Carcassonne and surrounds with
all its fascinating history. The flat is ideally located for these
explorations. Hope to return some time.
Janet, Mark, Jan, Brian, Judy &
Brian , May 2009
The apartment is centrally located so we were able to take many
wonderful day trips. Take a trip to Limoux and go thru the local
mountain road to Lagrasse. Don't miss the Saturday market if you're
here over the weekend! The Sunday market at Narbonne is definitely
worth a trip on your way to Sète for lunch at the Porte.
If you're here to celebrate a special occasion, or if you just
want a special dining experience you must try Domaine
d'Auriac. Great food and service. Try their special drink
of Prosecco with three orange liqueurs. Up at la Cité we'd
highly recommend going for drinks at the very cozy Library Bar
in the Barbicane Restaurant which is in the Hotel de la Cité.
Diane & Toby + Diana & Tony
, from New York, May 2009
We had a delightful few days in this ideally situated apartment.
It was so good to be able to come back to drinks on the terrace
after a hard day's sightseeing. Recommended l'Ecurie
restaurant. If you're heading to Millau, try to make time to do
the cave tour at Roquefort too.
Chris, Campbell + Mum , from London,
Had a marvellous stay in Carcassonne - in the apartment - and
the most exquisite meal in La Roulotte - that restaurant is a
must - & it's not far -  rue Denisse
Sue, Mary, Bobbi, Angela , April
We had a great stay, the apartment was very comfortable, our
hosts were extraordinary in helping us have a great holiday, Many
Kristine, Gavin & Louise
Really enjoyed our stay. Apartment perfectly situated for exploring

We had a great time here in Carcassonne. Accommodation wonderful,
weather usually clear and bright although cold! Snow on Boxing
Day a treat. Cité in the snow has to be seen. Up to the
Pyrenees for snowboard/skiing over Christmas. Markets great. Area
great. So glad we saw the Christmas spirit of this city.
Sue and Jim, from Australia, 6 weeks
We had a fantastic stay. The Penthouse is lovely, bright, light
and comfortable. We loved the layout and enjoyed eating out on
our rooftop terrace. Great location for the history and shopping!
Thanks for a perfect stay as usual!
Best wishes Angie & Ally. from
the UK, November 2008
Perfect weekend retreat. Well appointed apartment. Perfect situation
for exploring Carcassonne and a visit to The Millau Bridge. Magnificent.
We have had a wonderful weekend celebrating a 60 th birthday all
arranged as a surprise! The Saturday market for food WOW!!! Thank
John & Olivia Briggs, Simon &
Sarah Richards, from the UK, November 2008
Really enjoyed our stay. Apartment ideally located. Carcassonne
really a lovely spot and thoroughly enjoyed the Cité. Well
recommended to all.
Coleman , Eilish, Gerry, Mary and
Shirley from Ireland, October 2008
Spent a lovely few days here. Georgeous apartment! We have a
very energetic 18-month old but the location was perfect for her:
Place Carnot to run around, a small playground under the bridge
and lots of lovely child-friendly restaurants. Our absolute favourite
was La Roulette, just off Place Carnot. Delicious food, relaxed
environment. Had a very good high chair. Healthy, yummy child's
menu (including pumpkin soup). Toys for her to play with, etc
La Fontaine d'Helios on Place Carnot is excellent too.
Fiannula & Ross from Ireland, October 2008
Very nice stay here. Weather good. Cité beautiful &
Canal du Midi lovely too. Wonderful shower in en suite! .
Mary & Jim , from Australia, September 2008
Great apartment - great location - have all enjoyed our stay
here and weather very kind - now off to the Canal du Midi for
a week but have had a wonderful start to our holiday. Plenty of
room for 8!.

Super apartment in great location. Great city to spend some time
Mary & David, from Cyprus, August 2008
Lovely airy apartment in wonderful location. Great town to visit
with children - loads of things to do. We hope to return.
Fiona, Dick, Mary, Peter, & Paul, from Ireland,
A very comfortable apartment in an excellent position. Food good,
wine good, weather good. Lots to do and see around the area. Buying
local produce from markets and cooking ourselves was fun.
The medieval Cité was very interesting and the Bastille
Day Fireworks were fantastic. Overall it was a real experience
Irene & Jan, from Australia, July 2008
Thank you for providing such an excellent apartment, so bright
and airy ...
Holiday was excellent, good mixture of sun and cloud, really
needed one more week to get maximum benefit ...
Dean & Anne, from Ireland, June 2008
The apartment is beautiful. from the main entrance and dark stairway
it is amazing to walk into such a bright and spacious apartment.
It has everything you would need for a long or short stay.
The Castle is excellent at both day and night.
Overall it is a great location.
Philip & Audrey, from Ireland, June 2008
The apartment was lovely, well equipped and clean - thank you
Sophie. We didn't eat out with our 5 year old, but local markets,
fish and meat shops were great, we ate like kings and queens.
I am sure that one day we will return. Thanks (Alison)
What more can be said - apartment great - all we needed and more
- had a great time exploring the local area and tasting wine.
everyone so, so friendly, will definitely come back to enjoy the
local hospitality in the not too distant future. A big thank you
Sophie, our time in your apartment has been great. (Carole)
... this wonderful apartment is both comfortable and full of
the kind of things you need. It took us less than two hours to
reach the spectacular Millau Bridge via the motorway. this is
a lovely journey and the bridge is well worth the trip. We travelled
back cross country where Belmont ia a beautiful little town worth
seeing. The scenery is great but the drive is very windy and cannot
be negotiated in a rush. ... Arriving early [at the Cité]
is a great idea if you want to miss the hordes arriving by coach
and gave us a peaceful drink in "Le Marrou" in the main
square. The Cité is a beautiful site and there are so many
restaurants to chose from. The atmosphere in the square is what
makes France so good. It is peaceful yet lively. we walked from
the Cité to the Canal du Midi and took a one-and-three-quarter
hour boat trip up the canal. This was a lovely trip in the sunshine.
The trip was good value with an excellent commentary telling us
everything we needed to know. We still had time for a late afternoon
drink in Place Carnot. This is a welcoming square with a good
supermarket, bars, restaurants and a fishmonger who sold us some
The apartment was great for us with a 5 year old. The early mornings
and evenings on the roof patio were so peaceful you could hear
the flaps of the birds' wings flying above. The position is great
for exploring both the town of Carcassonne and the region. It
has left us with some great memories. (Darren)
Darren, Alison, Rosanna & Carole, from England,
We could not have found a better long term rental. The
apartment has the best light even on the dreary days of February.
Great location from which to explore the coast, Andorra,
the Pyrenees (Grotte de Niaux worth a visit but book in advance)..
Carcassonne was great for walking and running and it was great
to be here with the crowds of the old city and without the crowds
in the Bastide. Both have their benefits. Will highly
recommend this flat to friends.
Liz, David, Martin and Rachel, from Canada, Feb-May
Enjoyed a good holiday. Ideal location, spacious and pleasant
Wonderful, relaxing vacation.
Enjoyed Christmas fair in Place Carnot
If cooking in, do not miss the market in Place Carnot on Tuesday,
Thursday and Saturday.
... Office of Tourism on [rue] Verdun was very helpful.
Enjoyed exploring Carcassonne, but allow for business to close
for two hours during lunch.
Hope you have as much fun as we did!
Dan & Nancy, from MA, USA, December 2007
Enjoyed the history of the region. Tourist information very helpful.
Good food and atmosphere at "The Divine Comedy".
