5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 6 Mar 2010
I have a little house in Carcassonne so have been searching for a guide to recommend to my guests who will be renting it this year. I have been really disappointed with the usual guides, having visited dozens of times myself, I have never felt that they really get 'under the skin' of this lovely area and the town of Carcassonne in particular.

I was absolutely delighted when I received my copy of Trevor Park's book however. His true understanding and affection for the area shines through and his many practical tips for visitors would enable anyone to get more from their time there - whether a short stay or a longer trip. I really like the magazine-style layout as well, this is a publication you can fit into your bag without any problems and it also makes a great souvenir of your trip.

I have now recommended this book to all of my guests.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide 21 May 2009
I write to commend the excellent guide detailed above and produced by Trevor Park. Whether as a first time or repeat visitor to the region, there is a wealth of information to make the holiday visit a richly rewarding one. The guide is very clearly set out, broken down with helpful sections covering all interests, and much more .... Every visit to Carcassonne and Aude will be enhanced by the suggestions for day trips and activities. The photos and illustrations are of a high quality and draw the reader into the text. Although in brochure format of 60 pages, there is more information here than in many a larger book. Mr Park leaves the reader with many cross-references to websites so that further research can be pursued. He knows the area well and shares its attractions in a way that encourages the reader to want to make it their next holiday destination. Altogether the Guide is very good value as an introduction to what is obviously one of France's very special regions.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful guide 22 Nov 2010
As we were just visiting Carcassonne for a weekend break, we wanted a small guide to take that gave us ideas and infomation about how to make the best use of our time. This guide was perfect - Trevor Park has really thought of everything from a visitor's perspective. The only thing that would be useful was if the book itself was smaller (it is A4 sized), to enable it to be carried around in a small bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal book! Highly recommended 1 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase
My husband and I have just returned from a few days in Carcassone and bought this little book before we went. Although my husband has visited the area several times in the past, the book still suggested new things for us to do. It's very thoroughly researched and has detailed descriptions of all the main attractions in the area, laid out in themes. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic guide 28 July 2010
Verified Purchase
This book was really useful for a one week holiday in the Carcassonne region. We followed many of the ideas in the book for places to visit. Most were spot-on in their description and information. If you don't want a more expensive option that will take a good week to read through then this book is a good choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable guide for a visit to Carcassonne 15 May 2012
Verified Purchase
This guide is great for planning a visit. It covers everything you need to know before you visit for the first time. It also gives suggestions for places to visit in the surrounding area. So if we have our trip all planned out it will save a lot of time just getting off the plane and not knowing where to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars really useful guide 13 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a really useful guide. It has a good balance of photographs and text, maps, information and suggested itineries for further exploration. It also suggests further reading and a list of useful websites. I also like the format, not unlike a magazine, A4 size, which makes it easy to hold and read, unlike some other guide books that need to have really small print to fit in all the detail. This will fit easily in my suitcase! Highly recommend.
