About raymond hainey

After holidaying in the area for many years, we decided that the laid back French way of life was definitely for us. We came across the property a few years ago. It was in a terrible, run-down state and we have worked hard to lovingly restore this property to its former glory. We hope our guests enjoy the area and that they appreciate the hard work we have put in to restore this charming 16th Century house and retaining most of the original features.

raymond hainey purchased this apartment in 2010

Why raymond hainey chose Carcassonne City

We loved the fact that the property was right in the heart of Carcassonne, with all the amazing shops, restaurants and cafes on our doorstep.

We love spending weekends down on the Mediterranean which is just 45 minutes away.

There are many lovely villages to explore nearby, especially the famous book village, Montolieu and Saissac with its amazing Chateau.

What makes this apartment unique

We spent a lot of time making sure that the property retained its original features but also had all modern facilities.

The lovely terrace is perfect to enjoy a glass of wine or simply enjoy the views of St.Vincent Cathedral. It is very rare to get outdoor space in the heart of Carcassonne and that is one of the reasons that we were attracted to this property.

La Cite is just a 15 minute walk away, and there are so many restaurants and shops to explore nearby. Place Carnot is particularly nice to sit and enjoy a drink and watch the locals going about their business.

An Amazing Find

  • 5 of 5

We booked a short break to Carcassonne. Raymond the owner picked us up from the airport and showed us around the area before taking us to the apartment. On arrival we were not disappointed this apartment has everything you could wish for to make your stay comfortable even a coffee machine. The top floor apartment has french doors opening out onto the balcony which we used each morning to have our breakfast listening to the birds and the bells from St Vincent Church and each evening to share a bottle of wine before going out to dinner. The apartment is centrally based within a short walk to the centre and 20 mins from the Castle which we visited during the day and again at night. We took a taxi to Trebes and walked back along the Canal du Midi (approx 9 miles) taking in the lovely scenery and watching the boats coming through the locks. I would recommend this apartment and we will certainly be returning in the not too distant future.

Great apartment!

  • 4 of 5

Raymond met us at the station at 9.00 pm and drove us there even though it was only a 5 minute walk. He was excellent, showing us all facilities and letting us know about the sights of Carcassonne. He even let us stay until 1.00 pm on our third and final day when we were delayed due to a train strike. The apartment was clean, well maintained, had everything we wanted and was quite roomy. We would recommend it to others and would certainly stay there again.

Pleasant Apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean, well finished with modern appliances and benefited from a secluded balcony. The location was ideal for walking to the Cite, the Canal du Midi, the Aude, railway station and shops. Raymond was kind enough to collect us from the Airport saving us time and had even laid on basic food provisions (for late arrivals). The owner was more than helpful, the place felt comfortable and so I would definitely recommend it to others.

High quality flat ..high quality place

  • 5 of 5

The flat was fantastic and it's location could not be better. We took advantage of the visit and restaurant recommendations Raymond the owner gave us on the 'pick -up an welcome session'. This small break has given us a real taste for the Carcassonne area and we will definitely plan a return later this summer..5 stars and thanks again to Raymond Martin and Moira

Great Central Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a 5 night stay in this top floor apartment which is very central.We loved the balcony which looks on to the Cathedral tower. There is a spiral staircase which may not be suitable for people with mobility problems or small children. Raymond the owner is very considerate and most helpful with local knowledge.Comfortable beds including the bed settee. I would certainly recommend this property.
