The Languedoc town of Carcassonne has history in abundance, with an "immaculately-preserved medieval fortress", "dramatic, turreted walls" and "fairytale" credentials, says Red magazine. Grab a rarely discounted break to this gem in the south of France -- a 3-night escape at a luxury Relais & Châteaux hotel, including flights, is now £299 per person.

For 40% less than usual, you get:

  • Return flights from Liverpool, London Stansted, Bournemouth, East Midlands or Glasgow
  • Return private transfers worth £48
  • Three nights at the 5-star Domaine d'Auriac, with daily breakfast
  • Free parking and Wi-Fi

Depart on select dates from 1 May-28 June; 16-30 September.

It's an extra £50 per person to depart in July, or from London Gatwick or Bristol. Click here for more information and a full list of travel dates.

The hotel is surrounded by a 300-year-old park on the historic hilltop site of Carsac. The ancient Cité of Carcassonne is three miles away and it's a 20-minute drive to the Canal du Midi -- both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. 

Red recommends entering the Cité's fortress through the thick double walls by the main car park "for the most visually-impressive entrance". "Explore the narrow, cobbled streets" and spend "some time walking around the top of the ramparts" for the best views, it says. The food is also worth a mention -- try cassoulet, a traditional dish of sausages and beans.

Dining options at the Domaine d'Auriac include a fine-dining restaurant and a French bistro serving local produce. The hotel's terrace overlooks the gardens and other on-site facilities include an 18-hole golf course, a swimming pool and tennis courts.

Alternatively, stay four nights for £399 per person, five nights for £499 per person or seven nights for £599 per person.

Checked baggage is not included and is from an extra £32 per person.

Add on car hire for an extra £19 per car, per day.
