CARCASSONNE

Hôtel de la Cité

Tucked between the Château Comtal and Basilica of Saint-Nazaire — all within the walled medieval citadel of Carcassonne — Hôtel de la Cité is both historic monument and luxury hotel. With original neo-Gothic architectural details and impressive stone walls, this property houses just 60 individually styled guest rooms and suites, with features that range from furnishings crafted by local artisans to panoramic views of the citadel. Despite its cozy size, this property is home to fine dining on a grand scale. Foodies will relish the casual Brasserie Le Donjon, the private wine cellar, Le Jardin de l'Évêque for seasonal al fresco dining and La Barbacane, where imaginative French cuisine is served in a dramatic setting enveloped in paneled wood and stained glass.
