Free bicycle use is also available - subject to availability. If you need a lift we can collect for 10€ before 7.30pm per car (up to 4 passengers) or free collection for guests staying a minimum of 3 nights (we need prior warning – 48 hours if possible but better to arrange by return email - it is 10-15 minutes drive depending upon your exact location within Carcassonne)
