WHAT I OFFER

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

Delicious, fun and award winning Chocolate & Wine TASTING WALKING 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 it’s own. On the walking 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. 

 

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 Tours and Tasting Experiences 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.

Due to COVID-19, participants must wear a face mask while on the walking tour, except of course while tasting. They must also use alcohol based (70% minimum) hand sanitiser throughout the tour. The tour will observe physical distancing rules of a minimum 1 meter whenever possible. Before your tour, it is not mandatory, but it is recommended that participants download, install and activate on their SmartPhone, the “StopCovid France” contact tracing App. It can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
