WHAT I OFFER

All we need is Love, Chocolate and  Wine… and maybe a little nap too.

On the walking food tour we visit small, local producers of fabulousness for your tasting fun and discovery. And uniquely to my food tour, I also share a number of entertaining and intriguing historical stories of Carcassonne.

 

My delicious, fun and award winning Chocolate & Wine Tasting Food Tour of Carcassonne takes place in the lower newer town (1200's) called La Bastide Saint-Louis, the main central commercial hub of Carcassonne (La Centre Ville), not within the medieval fortified town of La Cité. La Bastide Saint-Louis has a fascinating story all of its own.

 

Chocolate & Wine Tasting Food Tours can be arranged Tuesday to Saturday only. Unfortunately, I am not able to offer tours on Sundays and Mondays due to shop closing days.

Walking Food Tours are only suited to those 18 years and over, as we spend a good deal of time tasting and discussing wines from this region. They are not oriented to families with children under the age of 18.
