Castelnaudary - The Home of Cassoulet

Castelnaudary, located deep in the south of Languedoc-Roussillon, is an interesting small town. Many boats cruising along the Canal Du Midi moor on the town's banks overnight, perhaps to sample some of its cuisine for which it is famous. Make sure you don't miss its cassoulet, in particular, as it considers itself the world's cassoulet capital. It's a thick stew made from haricot, beans, sausages, mutton and goose.

The Windmill of Cugarel - Power house of the Past

The town was once strongly dependent on its flour milling industry. Perched on a hill overlooking the plains of Languedoc, you can find the beautifully restored Moulin de Cugarel. Active in the 17th century, it has now become a surprisingly unique building of interest.

Sun, Sea and History

There are a number of fabulous sites to explore in the region. If you fancy getting wet, then you'll be pleased to know that a relaxing dip in the Mediterranean Sea is not too far away. If, however, you prefer history and magic, then head South-East to Carcassonne, a magnificent medieval town that has an inspirational castle.

Getting There

Travelling by air is relatively easy as a number of cheap airlines fly into Carcassonne. If you don't fancy flying then you could always travel straight across France. To avoid making the long journey yourself, why not take the TGV train service to Montpellier? Hire cars can easily be rented out before or upon your arrival.

Castelnaudary property prices

As a rule, Languedoc-Roussillon is an expensive place to buy property in France due its great climate and wide array of activities (although, compared to the Riviera and the Provence, the area is still cheap). Castelnaudary and the Aude department are not overly expensive, however, prices are certainly on the rise and the number of bargains to be found are diminishing.
