About the property

2 ideally located apartments.

A lovely renovated town house within sight of the Cité . Carcassonne's historic fortified citadel. (800m walk) Located in a quiet residential area. The house offers two completely separate apartments, ideal for extended family/friends holidays.

From our experience of letting our apartments for a number of years we feel we provide very clean and homely accommodation that are very well equipped including the recent addition of WIFI. We are not only ideally placed for La Cite and its many restaurants and shops but within easy walking distance of Carcassonne New Town and The Canal Du Midi. We are very close to local amenities including a boulangerie, butchers, Vival supermarket, bank and chemist or the larger supermarkets Geant, Lidl and Leader Price which are in the vicinity (1000m walk). Our guests are very complementary about the apartments and the location with many visitors returning year after year.

Apartment A (First floor) comprises of 3 bedrooms offering 2 king size rooms and a twin bedded room. Fully fitted bathroom with bath/shower. Modern dining kitchen and comfortable living room with stunning views of La Cité. Apartment B (Ground floor) comprises of 2 bedrooms offering 1 king size and a twin bedded room. Fully fitted shower room and toilet. Modern open plan dining kitchen/living room with patio doors leading to the garden, ideal for alfresco dining.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time. You arranged great weather.

We thought it was wonderfully located flat and so well presented.

As self-catering regulars we were amazed at the facilities and utensils you provided. The only place we've been in that went one better was a flat in Finland (winter skiing) which had a sauna and dishwasher! But it didn't have a garlic press and you had to order your wine from the post office for next day delivery because of the strict alcohol laws in Scandinavian countries.

If you want to put a recommendation from us on your website do go ahead.

We'd be happy to say it was a gem of a find on the internet(so people know we are not just your friends giving you a good blurb). The kitchen was so well equipped, the sitting room very comfortable and the location fantastic. Mr and Mrs Buckle of Berlin...

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

Nice sized house in a quiet location a short walk from la Cité. Clean and well equipped and we really enjoyed sitting out in the garden enjoying the early morning and late evening sunshine.

The owners provided lots of information prior to our holiday, they answered all our queries quickly and there was lots more information in the house.

Over the week this was a memorable experience which we would have no hesitation in recommending or repeating.

Very nice in all aspects.

  • 5 of 5

A very enjoyable time with all necessary facilities nearby. Only five minutes or so walk from Carcassonne's Medieval Cite and approximately 12 minutes walk into the Centre Ville, just what you need to keep fit. Wifi, etc. All in order. The facilities within Carcassonne, coffee houses, restaurants, supermarkets, etc., all very varied so you will find something to your taste. Recommend the bus trip to Narbonne at one Euro each way.

Holiday stay in Carcassonne

  • 4 of 5

Very friendly and good communication from the owners. All the information we needed was available. The apartment we thought was the better of the two as it was convenient to open the kitchen doors on to the terrace and garden to sit and eat. The terrace, at the time of year we went, was in the afternoon and evening time shade which was much more comfortable. It is ideally suited to visiting the Cite but all the surrounding areas. Parking was available but the street is quiet to park outside the apartment. We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a ideal base for the City and area.

Great and convenient location. Spacious appartment over-completly equipped. We had breakfast and supper outside. That's how holidays have to be. The appartment is well worth it, absolutely recommendable.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house ticks all the boxes positively. We are in fact already booked to go back next year and this time we will book the whole house upstairs and downstairs apartments as we wish to take friends and relatives with us this time. One of the best holidays we've had for a long time. The old medievil city and the town of Carcassonne are within easy reach and were just perfect for us. there was nothing we did not like about our stay here and the owners were first class with provided information...would I recomend this to anyone...? Whay do you think ?

This is reflected in visitors returning year after year. Thanks again Mick

La Cite, a world heritage centre, a ten minute walk away with its spectacular castle, many shops and cafes, a great place to sample the local wine and taste the 'cassoulet' a local speciality. Many festivals are held throughout the year. In the new part of Carcassonne on a Saturday you will find a typical French market selling local produce. The River Aude flows through, feeding the many vineyards surrounding Carcassonne. Take a boat trip along the Canal du Midi from nearby Trebes. A ten minute drive will take you to Carcassonne Plage for swimming, boating and a lovely place to walk. Narbonne Plage, a wonderful Mediterranean beach is a forty minute drive. The Pyrenees and The Black Mountains providing the back drop for Carcassonne, ideal for the more adventurous and energetic. Mirapoix with its ancient timbered houses and Toulouse the city of French aviation and cultural centre is an hour away. Barcelona under 3 hours away. Andorra, tax free shopping, offers a great day out.

Other Activities: Lake with beach less than 10 minutes drive from the property
