Nice golf club

Trevlig bana och fort sällskap trots regn och blåst.

Måste vara en av södra Sveriges mest underskattade banor. Fantastiska greener och bara det att man ser havet från alla hål är ju magiskt. Sen vilket inte är helt vanligt på golfbanor en restaurang av riktigt hög klass.

Inte prisvärt. Seg sjömansbiff. Tråkigt läge.

Cháteau Comtal

The Château Comtal (Count’s Castle) is a medieval castle within the Cité of Carcassonne, the largest city in Europe with its city walls still intact. The Château Comtal has a strong claim to be called a 'Cathar Castle'. When the Catholic Crusader army arrived in 1209 they first attacked Raymond-Roger Trencavel's castrum at Bèziers and then moved on to his main stronghold at Carcassonne.

The castle with rectangular shape is separated from the city by a deep ditch and defended by two barbicans. There are six towers curtain walls.

The castle was restored in 1853 by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.
