Karma Curated Experiences is a unique offering exclusive to Members – a series of singular destination experiences that are all about total immersion. The third in the Karma Curated series is coming up in July and it’s going to be special: Carcassonne Château & Citadels + Tour de France is a long, indulgent weekend in Château de Samary – our grand residence in the heart of the French countryside, taking in the fabled Medieval citadel of Carcassonne, sampling classic French cuisine both at the resort and in one of the region’s best eateries and witnessing the elite riders competing in this year’s Tour De France – the greatest cycle race on Earth.
We’ll also be getting into the cycling spirit, with a leisurely ride along the picturesque Canal du Midi – one of the great French engineering feats of the 17th century and visiting a wonderful local vineyard to sample some outstanding Occitanie wines. We’ve selected restaurants whose offerings perfectly reflect the foodie traditions of the region – while the food at Karma Château de Samary is of equal stature reflecting France’s hallowed status when it comes to culinary finesse.
Karma Château de Samary has been undergoing a complete refurbishment ahead of its opening in June. The new look pays homage to the Chateau’s 19th Century heritage with the interiors characterised by a mix of old world opulence, classical design and contemporary comfort. The chateau is set in extensive private gardens, surrounded by vineyards, farms and rolling hills – the perfect gateway to a quintessentially Gallic experience!
