A renovated 18th-century property that “blends contemporary architecture and historical heritage,” the Pont Levis Hôtel is just 50 miles from the Porte Narbonnaise, or “Narbonne Gate,” the main entrance to Carcassonne’s medieval city. Exceptional attention to detail has been given to each of the 12 stylish rooms and their private terraces. A bar, outdoor pool, and landscaped garden are also found here. Of particular note is the buffet breakfast: fresh, local produce including eggs, cheeses, foie gras, cold meats from the Montagne Noire region, smoked salmon, and all the usual breads, pastries, yogurts, tea, coffee, and juices.
