Carcassonne City House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom 3.5 bath house with garden, sleeps 9, walk to town & Cité

Beautiful and luxurious stone house in the center of Carcassonne, with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms - perfect for large families or groups of friends.

The traditional 2-story design from the 1860s has been recently updated to offer the best of both worlds. Maison Juliette spans 290 m2 (3000 sq.ft.) of living space. The ground floor includes a newly remodeled kitchen that is fully equipped for gourmet cooking, a dining room that seats 10, two living rooms, plus a half bath. The upper floor includes 4 bedrooms with fireplaces and 3 full bathrooms. Three of four bedrooms can have either single or queen beds. The house sleeps 9 people comfortably.

A landscaped garden offers a beautiful oasis where you can enjoy the outdoors in privacy. The summer kitchen and garden dining area provide a casual and comfortable setting for enjoying meals outdoors.

The Cité is a 1km walk to the east, and the commercial centre of Carcassonne is a 500m walk to the west. Experience a different kind of holiday - luxury in the center of a lively city, an easy walk to everything.

Carcassonne area golf & ski: Carcassonne is ideally located in southwest France, only 45 min. from the Mediterranean beaches, an hour and a half from the Pyrenees ski resorts, and an easy 3-hr drive to Barcelona, Spain.

Most of the ski resorts of the Eastern Pyrenees are easily accessible from Carcassonne: Font Romeu, Les Angles, Andorra and Ax-les-Thermes.

Situated close to the medieval town, the Carcassonne Golf Club well deserves its reputation as a course of international standard. The 18 hole course totals 5800 meters (6280 yds), with a par of 71, and is open all year round.

Carcassonne water sports, cycling and motorcycling: The Aude River, only 100m from Maison Juliette, offers great kayaking. Several companies offer white water rafting and canoeing trips.

Lac de la Cavayère is a small recreational lake just 6km from Maison Juliette. With its sandy beaches, lifeguard-protected swimming areas, fishing, picnic areas, grass walking paths, this lake is a true haven of peace, freshness and delight.

Carcassonne is a wonderful area for bicycling. In fact, many world-class cyclists have chosen to make their home in the area between Carcassonne and Barcelona. Two of the owners of Maison Juliette are cyclists, so please contact us for suggestions on cycling routes in the area.

If you prefer two-wheeled touring with an engine, there are many wonderful motorcycling roads in the area. Three of four owners are also motorcyclists, so we'll be glad to offer you our route maps.

Local events and festivals: Every year, Carcassonne hosts several major festivals - Jazz Week in April, the Festival of Music in June, Festival of the Cité in July, fabulous fireworks on Bastille Day (July 14), Spanish Week in August, Nautical Jousting in September, and a Christmas Festival in December.

About Sue Gordon & Jeannine Gauthier

Maison Juliette is owned by two California couples: Eric and Jeannine and their good friends, Ian and Sue. Eric grew up in Paris and always dreamed of owning a second home in the south of France. His wife Jeannine was easily convinced of the wisdom of this idea :-), and their enthusiasm soon infected their close friends, Sue & Ian.

Sue Gordon & Jeannine Gauthier purchased this house in 2008

Why Sue Gordon & Jeannine Gauthier chose Carcassonne City

We wanted a vacation home in the center of a small city - walking distance shops, restaurants and tourist sights - so we could relax and experience the European pedestrian-centered lifestyle, and our teenagers could be independent but still safe. Carcassonne is friendly city with about 50,000 residents. The Cite is the largest restored castle in all of Europe, attracting three million visitors each year. Carcassonne is far enough south that the weather is temperate all year. The beach is only a 45-minute drive away - unless you count the lake, which the locals call 'Carcassonne Beach' :-).

What makes this house unique

Walk to everywhere! And if you really want a rental car, there's plenty of free on-street parking directly in front of the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Coming to France for our 20th wedding anniversary was an excellent idea! Brought our 3 girls and were joined by brother and sister for part of the week. Enjoyed lots of things in Carcassonne: La Cité [day & night] O2 Adventure [3 hours of fun & challenge - ropes, zip lines, log walking - WOW!], day trip to Barcelona [3 hr drive], castle tour at La Cité, cooking class at 42 rue Victor Hugo with Peter Woodcock, eating & drinking [Restaurant St. Jean in La Cité, Adalaide next to St. Jean, Jardin en Ville, Chateau de Pennautier, Epi dOvalie pastries, La Mine Celine sandwiches, La Magnac restaurant], cute womens clothes at Chatteak near Place Carnot. Thanks, Eric, for letting us know about your Maison!

Maison Juliette

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a fabulous week in this wonderful house! It's a stunning, large, spotless and very comfortable house full of character. Very well equipped for our party of 7 with a great South facing courtyard area. Within very easy walking distance of both parts of town and fantastic countryside surrounding.
Jeannine, the owner was extremely helpful with information and the site is totally accurate. Thank you!!
Susie, Manchester.

Very impressive

  • 5 of 5
The street front of Maison Juliette didn't really give an accurate impression of what lay behind the front door. I checked the house number, to reassure myself that I had indeed found the place which had promised so much. The satnav after all had sent us to the other end of Rue d'Alsace.
As soon as we entered however, any doubt was dispelled. The overwhelming impression was of the spacious nature of the house, and of all the rooms within it. Such high ceilings, so many rooms and every conceivable appliance and requirement. We were given a swift and informative survey by Geoff, and after that we had no need for any further queries.
The house booklet contains a wealth of relevant information, and we would have needed to stay for a month rather than a week, to exhaust all the suggestions for restaurants, sights and excursions.
At some time in the future perhaps we will be able to make that extended stay, and visit more of such marvellous places as Minerve.

great property

  • 5 of 5
myself, my husband, teenage son and my mother and father in-law stayed at Maison Juliette for 1 week. The house was fantastic. The photos do not do it justice. There was lots of space and every room was beautiful, clean and had everything you could need.
The owner could not have been more helpful.
The area is fantastic.
Easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and of course La Cite itself.
We hired a car to see some of the surrounding areas, and had some fabulous days out. Our favourite places were Lagrasse and The castle of Peyrepertuse.
I would highly recommend Maison Juliette, we had a wonderful time here and would love to return.

Well presented and spacious accommodation.

  • 4 of 5
The house was clean and well presented with excellent facilities. The outside courtyard is a feature of the house but is let down by a lack of garden maintenance. Carcassonne is a lovely city and the house is in easy walking distance of all major attractions including the river, the canal, the Citie and Bastide.

Maison Juliette is situated in the heart of Carcassonne, midway between the medieval walled Cité and the Bastide St. Louis, Carcassonne's commercial center. No car is required - enjoy a different kind of holiday in the centre of a lively city.

• The riverbank, with its beautiful walking paths offering views of the Cité is only 100m from the house.

• Numerous restaurants and bakeries are within a 500m walk. An internet cafe is within 300m; the post office is 400m, and several ATMs are within 500m.

• The Canal du Midi, which runs from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic, is also just 500m from Maison Juliette.

• There's a small swimming lake (Lac de la Cavayère) just 6 km, with lifeguard-protected swimming area, picnic tables, volleyball courts and zip lines.

• Most popular ways to get to Carcassonne:

1) Fly into Carcassonne airport on RyanAir (UK's budget airline) from Brussels, London/Stanstead and many other UK cities.

2) Fly into Toulouse and take a 1-hour train to Carcassonne, or simply rent a car and drive. The Carcassonne train station is 700m from the house. If you arrive by train with only a small rolling bag, you can easily walk to the house, or catch one of the taxis that line the street in front of the train station.

3) Fly into Barcelona and take a 3-hr train (or drive) to Carcassonne.

4) Fly into Paris, stay a few days to see that beautiful city, and take the 5-hr TGV (high-speed train) to Carcassonne.

5) Combine strategies 2 and 4 - you can often fly into Paris and out of Toulouse (or vice-versa) for about the same cost as a round-trip. Then just take the TGV one-way to/from Paris.
