Weekend in Carcassone! Cozy time in a wonderful vineyard!

Caracassone is 3 hours drive away from Barcelona. It is the perfect way to escape the city, visit the wonderful medieval city and be in another country for a weekend. For something special, O'vineyard is a Bed and Breakfast vineyard, cozy, just a few kilometers away from Carcassone. You could either stay there for a night or try their Table d' Hôtes. It belongs to a wonderful couple, Lise is the wonderful chef, and Joe is the perfect host who will guide you through the secrets of wine making. It is perfect for a romantic getaway and learning the secrets of wine-making or a family get together in the fresh air; they have 4 rooms
. Also a good option if you need a break and you have a small toddler, the house is spread out on one floor and you could enjoy wine, dining, chatting and relaxing while your baby is safely sleeping.You can also buy their remarkable wines, for home or for a special occasion, a wedding or a special anniversary.
Check their website for more info:
