We loved the apartment. It was very homely and in a sweet part of the old city right under the Cite walls. An easy walk to the medieval ramparts above where there are lots of restaurants - and tourists!
About a ten minute walk takes you to a number of restaurants on Rue Trivalle and bars. It's a little way from the town centre (about a 25 minute walk and about a 30 minute walk to the Carcassonne station.
The hosts Anna and Ian are easily contactable and very helpful for everything. We really enjoyed staying there.
Our favorite place to be was on the upper terrace with a view of the abbey. So many nights we were star gazing up there. We spotted so many meteors and a few satellites. Your house was a delight, everything we needed. The front bedroom was a bit noisy, but it is harvest time and the grapes must get picked and delivered.
We were very thankful for the wash machine, clothes line and pens, as my sister's luggage was lost for 7 days.
A huge thank you for helping us with our medical situation. Dr. Francisco was marvelous. One of the waitresses at Table d' Èmilie, (I think she cleans for you) spoke highly of Dr. Francisco. And by the way, what a wonderful restaurant.
Thank you for your hospitality, that bottle of wine on arrival was a perfect touch to put us in French mode.
We loved the experience of living in an older home in the heart of a medieval village. Hanging out at La Grande Fontaine became a ritual for us, eventually we were enamored to meet a couple of the regulars.
I didn't find out until late in our visit that the donkeys I spotted were actually in a sanctuary and could be adopted. How wonderful! I am rather fond of donkeys.
I am rambling, but it was all so wonderful. It will be difficult now to adjust to not having
a patisserie, wonderful hiking and walking paths, and all the wonderful dogs hanging out at the Fountain. It's a magical place and we truly enjoyed a comfortable home to come back to every night.
