excellent and accurate, up to date guidebook
on 31 December 2008
I bought this book before an out-of-season visit to Carcassonne and the nearby castles in November 2008. It proved to be by far the best guide to visits to the area, far better than those to be found once there in the castle bookshops, and more informative even than those written in French. The access and opening hours in the book were very accurate and useful, and the reconstructions of various castles superb and well researched. This book greatly enhanced this visit and added enormously to my enjoyment and understanding of the area. A big thankyou to the authors.
