La Bastide Saint-Louis Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom apartment sleeps up to 4 people

Comprising 2 bedrooms, living room, bathroom and separate kitchen, this bright apartment is on the 3rd floor (top floor, no elevator) of an ancient building in the heart of the Bastide St Louis in Carcassonne, France. The larger bedroom has a king size bed with the 2nd bedroom furnished with 2 single beds. Close to all amenities and just one block from the central square, the Place Carnot with numerous cafes, bars and restaurants.

The building is located centrally in the Bastide St Louis, close to all shopping and dining. You will be just one street away from the Place Carnot which is the central square and is a hub of constanct activity all summer. Have a glass of wine in the early evening while sitting outside one of the many cafes in the sunshine and people watch.

It's just a 20 minute stroll to the Cite, five minutes walk to the Canal du Midi or 8 minutes to stroll along the banks of the Aude. If you wish you can rent bicycles and cycle by the canal or out to the countryside to visit the local vineyards. You may also like to book guided tours of the vineyards to sample their wine. The local tourist office on Rue de Verdun has many ideas on local trips. Of course if you wish to travel further afield the local train station which has links to many other cities is only five minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mary

We had a really good time, we were so pleased with the flat and being beside Place Carnot was perfect as there were very good festival events on there in the evenings.

We enjoyed meeting Aurelien too. Our mobile phones were not working the first day so we had to get the tourist information office to phone him for us, which they were happy to do.

We met a lady from downstairs who spoke to us about the noisy air in the pipes at night and she asked us to report it to you. We turned off the water at night to avoid the noise waking anyone. Aurelien must have been alerted to the problem too, as he phoned to inquire about it.

Many thanks for letting the flat to us. It was perfect ,and we were wishing that we could stay another week and join in the festival celebrations!

Yours sincerely,

Clean apartment, convenient location, reasonable price

  • 3 of 5

We spent three nights here in July. The apartment is clean and had everything we needed to cook comfortably and eat in when we needed. The location is very convenient, close to a Carrefore market, bakery, and many restaurants. And Mary was very responsive and helpful whenever we had questions or needed anything. For our tastes, however, we didn't like the dirtiness of the street and stairway leading up to the apartment, which was dark and had many tiles loose. And we found the shower to be hard to use (hard to keep water off the floor) and found ourselves (four of us) running out of hot water quickly, even when we tried to be careful about our water usage.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your revuew, I'm happy you found the apt clean and comfortable, unfortunately we have no control over the cleanliness of the street. The building is a few hundred years old and the stairway ireflects this. There should not have been a problem with the hot water as we had a new boiler fitted a few weeks ago, perhaps the temp was not set high enough, My caretaker would have checked that had he known. I really hope you enjoyed Carcassonne.

Nice appartment in Carcassonne centre

  • 4 of 5

The appartment is perfectly situated in the centre of Ville Basse and thus close to what you need. We really enjoyed to have the appartment as base for our tours in Carcassonne and surroundings as it was well equipped and the owner supplied a lot of brochures and tour suggestions.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Carcassone is a beautiful city and this apartment is in an ideal location, close to everything, It was clean and comfortable, just like in the pictures, in a lovely old building. There are really nice bars and restaurants in the area and it's just a short walk to the castle. The price was very reasonable and I would definitely return to stay here and/or recommend to a friend.

Really good position for a visit to Carcassonne

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is ideal for a visit to Carcassonne. Just around the corner from Place Carnot where there are Cafes, bars, a supermarket and cash points, it is easy to find somewhere to eat, drink or get supplies. Just a short stroll away ther are plenty of shops on the Rue Georges Clemenceau. At the end of this street you will find plenty more places to eat ( recommend the restaurant right at the end on the left hand side. I think it is called Le Pergola, it is where the MacDonnalds used to be. Food is lovely and the service is really good). In this area you will find the Canal Du Midi where you can take a boat excursion. Of course the main attraction in Carcassonne is the medieval castle, Le Cite, which is fantastic. Once inside, you will find a labyrinth of narrow streets with shops bars and restaurants aplenty. Again, this is within walking distance of the apartment and is free to visit. There is a charge to visit the battlements and internal fortress (8.5 euros) but this is worth a look. There are markets on Thursdays and Saturdays with fruit, veg, cheeses etc. in Place carnot and clothes, sunglasses, cloths, toys etc. in Square Gambetta.

The apartment itself is at the top of a four storey building, so a bit of a climb, but once inside is perfectly adequate for a stay with all of the facillities you will need. Being on a quiet backstreet and on the top floor, noise isn't a problem so you should manage a good nights sleep. There was a problem with the plumbing while we were there wich made the pipes noisy. This is easily sorted by turning off the water supply to the toilet cistern but this may well be sorted by now.

Carcassonne has its own airport just on the outskirts of the town, we flew from Bournemouth with Ryanair. A taxi to the apartment cost 14 euros even though the driver didn't take the most direct route. Once there you won't need transport unless you want to travel outside Carcassonne as there is plenty to keep you occupied within walking distance.

All in all we had a great visit and would definately look at this apartment again on another visist.

Our stay in Carcassonne

  • 4 of 5

"I enjoyed a really nice 4 night stay in this apartment, it looks exactly like in the pictures. The location is perfect, just one street away from the central square, great cafes and bars, loved the markets on Thurs and Sat, easy walk to the the medieval castle. I will definitely go back. Yes, the stairs are quite a walk up but all the buildings in this area are like this, they don't have lifts, it's worth it for the bright living room looking out over the old roofs, also only 5 mins taxi from the airport and 5 to 6 mins walk to train station.
