Charming gite in a pretty spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable 5 nights at the gite.

it is well equipped and comfortable, thank you for making us so welcome Julianne & the goodies we found in the fridge on arrival were a lovely surprise!

Although its located some distance from the Cite or Bastide, about a 15 minute walk, we enjoyed walking off some of the calories we ate. The walk through the park and over the Aude visa the foot bridge was lovely.

Also we found lots of good places to eat about 5 minutes away near Le Vieux Pont.

We would recommend the gite to family & friends.

A place to relax

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I found this gite to be an ideal location for exploring the wonders that Carcassonne has to offer. We sought out new adventures during the day and relaxed here during the evenings which was wonderful. The cite is only a few minutes walk away and there are many places to enjoy walks with a close by play park for children. The owner of this property is lovely and very helpful which always makes the holiday experience better. We enjoyed it so much we can't wait to go back!

A wonderful location and hideaway, recommended.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my husband and 12 year old daughter in the property, we had a wonderful stay in Carcassonne, and were pleasantly surprised with the gite and we were most grateful for the unexpected welcome pack.

We found the gite to be situated in a great location as we were only a 5 - 10 minute walk away from the medieval cite, and a few more minutes to the market square and amenities. We felt fortunate that we did not need to rent a car due to the location and this meant more of our budget could be spent on evenings and days out to sample local cuisine including the Cassoulet which we would definitely recommend.

The property was well maintained and the bedding was really comfortable. I really loved the mixture of furniture and dresser in the bedroom, my daughter apreciated the TV in the evenings.

We took the bus to Lac Cavayere (a man made lake complete with beaches) which was lovely, we had a walk around the lake and there was also an adventure park there which our daughter and my husband really enjoyed.

We took Julianne’s offer up on using her bikes for the day to cycle along the canal du midi which was picturesque.

The patio area is a nice place to relax in the evenings and to have breakfast, we took a few evening strolls around the island to work off our meals which was nice. And we were able to enjoy picnics in the greenery near the River Aude only a short walk away.

The property owner (Julianne) was very accommodating and managed to assist us on returning to Carcassonne airport by dropping us there in her car.

We would definately recommend this gite to friends and family and hope to return.

Carcasonne gite

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideally situated in a tranquil spot yet very accessible to both the ancient city and the main part of Carcasonne by foot.

The property blends a mix of modern and traditional furniture and is very comfortable. The small patio area at the front of the property is an ideal addition.

I would recommend this property to all ages - you have the benefit of being situated in very pleasant outskirts of a lovely small city , however when I say outskirts I mean that you are a very pleasant 5 -10 minute walk along a beautifl river path / road to the bridge which seperatess the old and new parts of Carcasonne.

A fantastic property in an ideal location.

The owner was very helpful and welcoming throughout the short stay.

A first class experience.

Ravis par cette location

  • 5 of 5

La description de la location proposée est conforme à l'annonce. Nous avons apprécié le mobilier, les éléments de cuisine, les plaques de cuisson et la propreté des lieux. Nous avons pu manger à l'extérieur matin, midi et soir. Le seul point négatif a été la télé qui ne fonctionnait pas en français. Nous étions les premiers français à louer.

En bref, ravis par cette location nous la conseillons sans soucis.

Merci au propriétaire pour sa disponibilité par mail. (un petit coucou à Maeve au passage). Nous y retournerons à l'occasion.
