Attractions near the Hotel Residence La Barbacane
Discover a medieval fortress
The site of the Counts of Carcassonne is a five-minute walk from the hotel. This is a Heritage-listed medieval masterwork of military architecture overlooking the Audef River. The castle was fortified in the 4th Century, before taking on its distinctive shape in the 13th Century.
From the moment your feet hit the cobblestone path, you’re transported to the old world where elaborate craftsmanship rules. Be sure to bring your camera, as you’ll want to capture the stunning architecture and magical surrounds. Take your time to walk through this grand castle, making sure to check out the breathtaking views from the Pont Neuf Bridge. For a more exclusive experience, visit by night when crowds are smaller and the floodlights give the area a unique golden hue.
Chic dining at Bloc G
Just two minutes’ stroll from the hotel is the Bloc G restaurant, which oozes ultra-modern style. Decor is minimal – think white walls and sleek, muted furniture – to create a casual-chic setting in which to socialise over coffee or an a la carte lunch or dinner.
Fresh, seasonal produce is the focus, with sumptuous home-style cuisine and classic flavours pushed to new heights. Marry your meal with a pick from the extensive wine list, which features premier local drops. Warmer months are perfect for alfresco dining on the terrace, while the crackling fireplace provides the perfect escape from chilly weather.
