We play the game Carcassonne at home as a family (its a really good board game) and plan to visit the actual place one day. It looks just as lovely as I imagined.

Oh my gosh that is the place of my dreams. So gorgeous! My 3rd great grandfather and his parents came from a little village that reminds me of Carcasonne. It's called Chalon-sur-Saone in the north east of France and lived in an apartment like in those twisty streets you walked around in Carcassone. One day I hope to visit there myself. Thank you so much for sharing. It looks like the most marvelous week!


It's so funny because I was in Mirepoix just around the same time you were, and we visited Carcassonne - some of your photos could just be mine!




The history is sooooo interesting! Thank you for sharing Lucy!!

Have you tried "programming" your dreams so you can keep your Carcassonne-ian holiday alive for a spell? I'm oftentimes able to do that, and it's always such a treat! I hope the transition back to the your real world is gentle. And as always, thank you so much for letting us into your Attic (and beyond!).

Brought back lovely memories its been over 20 years since I was there


I was there when my youngest was fully into knights and castles, so I had intense days running after happy kids. It is stunning, the surrounding cities are beautiful
too. I can imagine, 5 days of full-time teaching asks for quiet walks afterward. It is a good place to live, just like the other side of the Pyrenees. History, lovely people, good food, culture, and warmth.


Hello, Lucy,

Thank you for sharing more photographs of Carcassonne. It really is a beautiful medieval town. I am sure it will remain in your thoughts for many years, as it has in mine.

Thank you and thank you again and for taking time to share your life blog with us all.

Warmest wishes,

carol partridge

its like a fairytale place, isn't it. Glad you enjoyed your visit, even if you were working. I always enjoy looking at the places you have been and love all your photo's. Thank you for sharing and taking the time to put them on your blog. Much appreciated, Lucy.

Winwick Mum

What a stunning place! I love old walls and buildings, and wonder what they would say about all the people who have lived there ... I wouldn't have wanted to come home either! :) xx

Sally Spragg

Ooh that looks and sounds like a gorgeous place and it was combined with crochet! So glad that you enjoyed it all!


Wow, it looks absolutely beautiful. I will certainly be adding this to my list of places that I would like to visit.


Carcassonne really does look hauntingly pretty, and all that history🏰 must add to the atmosphere amazingly! I'm not sure any aerial shot of London can be called "amazing", especially after where you just came from - I know where I'd rather be! I was struck by the amount of colours in your photos, will they be inspiring a blanket any time soon I wonder?! Thanks for sharing your trip with the rest of us👋😀


Sitting here in Napier, NZ on a very wet rainy day, the history and character of your lovely workshop sat well with me too. Bit far for me to come over, but I can indulge my fantasies can’t I? Beautiful places in Europe [and New Zealand].

Enjoy your home, Lucy.
