Wonderful place for vacation
We stayed with my wife for 2 summer weeks in the apartment, and enjoyed Carcassonne music festival, its breathtaking medieval castle (advice: discover it after dark), its "cite basse" with its market and stores, relaxing moments sipping a glass of wine, discovering the Cathare region by bus or train. No need of a car, there are 2 railways corridors a N-S and a E-W, and the N-S train tickets cost 1 Euro!!! Also, we biked along the Canal du Midi and walked along the Aude river. People of Carcassonne are surprisingly nice, for such a tourisitic place. We did spend quite some time on our PC looking for the best place to stay, and select Carcassonne and this apartment, for several reasons: 1) Carcassonne offers everyting we like without the need of a car, 2) the apartment offers a "private" terrasse and a backyard where we could have lunch and diner under the shade of the Pergola (quite useful in summer), 3) it was within walking distance to the train station, the castle, and all stores, 4) the reviews mentioned it was quite (and indeed its is very quite), and 5) the price was particularly attractive. After 2 weeks of wonderful moments with my wife, I can say that we did the right choice. We really love going to some concert or theater play (most are free!!) or wandering around the old castle at night, then have a glass of wine Place Carnot before heading home to our apartment. It was definitely like a perfect honeymoon, although 20 years later!
More about the apartment: The apartment has everyting to live confortably, including the WiFi (with good kb/s), its is remarkably quite considering that there are 4 apartments for rent in the house (I would suggest the ground-level Eastern side for its shaded terrasse). Finally, I would like to mention the kindness of the owner, who was always helpful with our questions. So, thank you Carcassonne, Carcassonnais(es) and the owner.
