We've stayed here for two days, and it was horrible. The toilets and douches were very ok. But the kitchen was very dirty and old. But the worst thing was the sort of sportsteam who came every morning very earlt to train next to our tent, with very loud music which you could hear all over the camping. Overall, a very bad experience and o would'nt recommend this camping to any one

Nice camping but the only thing i think they should do is make a lock on the showerdoors and maybe place more of those because not everyone wants to be seen nude. But overall it's a good camping and the facilities look a-okay.

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.
