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

Delicious, fun and award winning Chocolate & Wine Tasting Food Tours take 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. On the walking food tour we visit small, local producers of fabulousness for your tasting discovery. During the tour I also share with you a number of intriguing historical stories of Carcassonne and of course about Chocolate and Wine. 


Chocolate & Wine Tasting Food Tours can be arranged Tuesday to Saturday. Due to shop opening hours, I am not able to offer tours on Mondays and most Sundays.

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.
