Of course it’s the Yorkshire Stage grabbing all the headlines for the 2014 Tour de France but prospective guests to La Bomba might like to know that the Tour will be passing very close by on Tuesday July 22nd for the Carcassonne – Bagneres-de-Luchon Stage. The closest point it will be passing is just south of Castelnaudary at Fanjeaux. It’s a remarkable spectacle and guests always rave about the experience. As of writing the house still has availability for that week but please do check the calendar to see if that has changed.
Fanjeaux is also well worth seeing – a delightful hilltop town with incredible views over Lauragais country. Its main claim to fame is as the home of St.Dominic – founder of the RC Dominican order. He lived here in the early 13th century. Last winter my family and I had a wonderful day exploring the old cobbled streets.
