Leucate - Carcassonne

(southwest France)

 

Leucate, in the southwest of France with over 300 wind days in the year is one of the "windiest corners" of Europe. If Tramontana and Mistral meet together, the wind reaches fast 7 or 8 Beaufort. This constellation is ideal for Windsurfing and the Etang de Leucate become a paradise of the windsurfers.

If the wind should be missing, then beautiful Bungalow villages invites you to relaxing, or you can make a trip into the close convenient Pyreneeses.

A sightseeing highlight is a trip to Carcassonne, a medieval fortress town, with close, bent lanes and old buildings. During a walk by the ”Cite”, one feels carried back around centuries
