We're sailing at du Midi from Cassafieres to Castelnaudary and then plan to rent a car and drive up to Paris. I've failed to find a rent-a-car in Castelnaudary. Could you advise me what is the closest facility where I can go by taxi and return with a car to pick up my family and friends?
Google for 'location voiture Castelnaudary' (which is car rental - town).
32 Avenue François Mitterrand, 11400 Castelnaudary, France

Here's the link to the Yellow pages, with all the info you want. There are 5 that rent cars.
There is one (listed above) right across from the port. It's an easy walk.

It's a large town; you won't have any problem finding a car. If you want an automatic, book ahead of time or there probably won't be one available. They are not the norm in Europe.
Heed the advice from gwened above and have cassoulet while there. Castelnaudary is the home of cassoulet and it is delicious.
BTW, you could also think about taking the train to Paris unless you just want to see the countryside. Just a thought.
Enjoy your trip.
Thank all of you for your help!
