Carcassonne Airport serves the Languedoc and Roussillon region, and in particular the enchanting and ancient city of Carcassonne. The medieval city with castle and ramparts is one of the most spectacular sights in the south of France; especially in the evening when the ramparts are lit. Wine connoisseurs and food lovers will enjoy the city as much as those who fall under the spell of ancient history.
If you take up car hire in Carcassonne Airport, you can explore the delights of Languedoc-Roussillon and its beaches and towns. Hiring a car in Carcassonne Airport will take you quickly to the city itself and give you access to the coastal A9 road.
Carcassonne Airport is about 4.5km from the Medieval City, and once there, it's the imposing castle and its ramparts that'll first take your eye; especially if you arrive in the evening when the walls are atmospherically lit. La Bastide Saint-Louis is the town on the doorstep of the castle, and represents the side of Carcassonne that is more ‘lived-in'. Crossing the Pont Neuf, you'll find delights such as the pretty gothic Basilica of St. Nazaire which shouldn't be overlooked. First-class restaurants are scattered throughout the area.
The immediate Aude region is dominated by Carcassonne, but if you're hiring a car at Carcassonne Airport you may wish to take a trip to Chateaux de Lastours; it's a wonderful 17km drive and then a magical walk to the top of the ruins where the views are phenomenal. Others may prefer the Abbaye de Fontfroide, just down the A61 at nearby Narbonne. Cities such as Montpellier are well within reach as a day trip, and those who want to intersperse their holiday with some time on the beach may do well to head towards Perpignan. If you rent a car in Carcassonne Airport, most of these places are within reach using the A61 and A9.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
