If you’re a traveller, or someone who just wants to follow in the steps of the Royal couple, that means you can hardly get better hotel recommendations this summer.

Old-world charm at Hôtel de la Cité Carcassonne

“Après tant d’hôtels, enfin un chez-moi,” wrote the novelist Colette in the Hôtel de la Cité Carcassonne’s guest book many years ago. Translated, she wrote, “After so many hotels, I have finally come home.” This eloquent statement may be from another era, but it still embodies the heart of this story-book destination in the stunning south of France–a hotel that is, quite simply, filled with beauty, elegance, and charm.
