Sleeping

Les Floralys ( % 04 68 32 65 65, www.lesfloralys.com; chemin de Craboule/chemin du Maritime; site & 2 campers €17.10; S yr-round; @ ) The nearest camp site to town is this smallish, shaded 32-plot choice with a pool. Driving, follow signs for Gruissan. Cyclists and walkers can simply follow the canal towpath from Narbonne for about 2km.

Centre International de Séjour ( % 04 68 32 01 00, www.cis-narbonne.com; place Roger Salengro; incl breakfast dm €15.10, s €25.10, d with shower €38, with bathroom €42) Large, in the heart of town and with its own canteen and café, this makes a great budget choice. Downsides are that it's only open when a group is in residence (but that's most days of the year) and - absurdly - it doesn't take reservations from individual travellers. Phone in advance to make sure it's functioning.

Le Régent ( % 04 68 32 02 41; www.leregentnarbonne .com; 15 rue Suffren; r with shower €30-33, with full bathroom €38-48; ® ) Parking €4. This hyperfriendly 15-room choice offers exceptional value. The two rooms at roof level (€48) overlook the city, while the pair in the basement (€44) have their own separate entry and a small patio. There's also a roof terrace where all guests can lounge. Fact: until well after WWII, the building housed Narbonne's largest, best-reputed brothel. Should your bed shake, it's only the ghost of past patrons.

Hôtel de France ( % 04 68 32 09 75; www.hotelnar bonne.com in French; 6 rue Rossini; r €30-33, with bathroom €50-68; ®® ) Parking €7. Wi-fi available. At this particularly tranquil choice, tucked away down a quiet side street, every window is double glazed. Rooms are individually decorated and most bathrooms are large with a separate toilet. Since it too has only 15 rooms, reservations are essential in high season.

La Résidence (%04 68 32 19 41; www.hotelresidence .fr; 6 rue du Premier Mai; s €67-93, d €72-97; ® mid-Feb-mid-Jan; ® ) Parking €7. Occupying a sensitively renovated 19th-century building, this friendly, 26-room hotel has tastefully furnished, comfortable rooms.
