South of France Guided Tours

Uncover the secrets of France’s hidden corner with a personalized tour…

Carcassonne, France, March 31, 2010 --( South of France Hotel is a beautiful 19th Century maison de maitre – the master’s house – lying within 3 acres of sumptuous landscaped gardens. It is located in the idyllic countryside of Languedoc-Roussillon, surrounded by rolling vineyards, sun-baked villages and hills covered in the flowering shrubs of the Mediterranean. Nearby is the famous medieval citadel of Carcassonne with its 52 towers and its imposing double walls that extend over 3km. This area is dotted with numerous ancient castles that hark back to the Cathar Crusades of the Middle Ages. On their doorstep, the Canal du Midi snakes through vines and olive groves - its languid passage cooled by the leafy shade of plane trees - until it reaches the glittering coastline of unspoilt beaches and oyster-filled lagoons.

South of France Hotel offers not only luxury accommodation in elegant-yet-relaxed surroundings, but this year has teamed up with local guide Catriona Cameron, to offer personal guided tours to its guests. Widely knowledgeable on the history and flora of the region, and having worked for local wineries, Catriona can offer a valuable insight into this area, which is as historically rich as it is beautiful.
