Character apartment building close to the river and historic Pont Vieux in Centre of Carcassonne. The building including all communal areas has been totally renovated to offer a selection of four one bedroom apartments and one two bedroom apartment furnished to a very high standard with new fitted kitchens. All mod cons including English Satellite TV and WiFi internet.
Well established, friendly English owners living locally.
Property owners offer free pick up from Carcassonne Airport or train station with supermarket stop en route.
The apartments are accessed via a traditional winding French staircase tiled with terre cuite tiles. There are two one bedroom apartments on the first floor and two one bedroom apartments on the second floor. On the third floor, the two bedroom apartment has its own shaded roof terrace for outdoor eating with a lovely view of the castle.
We offer discounts for bookings of more than one apartment and also for longer stays. Each of the one bedroom apartments are equipped with dining furniture for four people. Friends can book two one bedroom apartments on the same floor so they have their own space and en suite bathroom whilst being able to eat and socialize together.
Rue du Pont Vieux is a prime location as it is located within a few minutes walk of Carcassonne town centre and Carcassonne Tourist Office. Two UNESCO World Heritage sites- Carcassonne Cite and the Canal du Midi are also within a few minutes walk from rue du Pont Vieux.
We wanted to keep to a French theme when naming the apartments so we decided to name them after some of Napoleon Bonaparte's most famous Peninsula Marshalls - Ney, Mortier, Suchet, Marmont and Massena.
We moved to this region 15 years ago from Herefordshire in the Uk.
We fancied a change as Jason was often away from home with his work in sales and contracting. We have renovated several properties in and around Carcassonne for rental which we take great pleasure from meeting guests from all over the world.
Annette also has a small but very busy hair salon in our village of Escueillens in the beautiful Razes countryside just outside Carcassonne.
We have three children, James (21) who is training at the C.N.E.S in Toulouse, Charlotte (18) who is studying at University in the UK and Samuel (15) who is at Lycee in Castelnaudary. Our children often help us out with changeovers during holidays and weekends.
We selected this property from local knowledge and advice from a Notaire in Carcassonne.
It is the ideal location in Carcassonne between the Cite and the town centre. We wanted to buy a building to renovate and to retain character but also to modernise.
Having heard so many horror stories of rental properties with dodgy electrics and plumbing and poorly maintained communal areas, we realised that renovating an apartment building from scratch meant we could ensure all of our properties meet with current norms and hopefully avoid maintenance issues which might affect guests.
We carried out a lot of the work ourselves, hence it took us several years to complete but we have achieved our aim of providing modern, well equipped apartments with character.
Ideal position between Carcassonne town centre and Cite so walking distance to all ameneties.
The right balance of modern, comfortable apartments with character. Things that really matter and make a difference according to our guests are extremely comfortable beds, well equipped kitchens, fast internet and free pick up from airport or train station.
We always aim to be professional, friendly and down to earth landlords who strive to ensure our guests have a fantastic stay in Carcassonne.
