Don't judge a book by it's cover!
This apartment is perfectly located for a visit to Carcassonne and the surrounding area! Quiet, comfortable and an easy walk to the medieval fortress town: La Cite. I confess to having a few reservations when my husband and I arrived. This is an old city and - on the outside - the area near the apartment (the Bastide) looks a bit dilapidated BUT the owners have done a wonderful job renovating the entire building. As we walked through the Bastide, to La Cite and into Place Carnot I began to make comparisons to my hometown of New Orleans. Just like home, the apparently dilapidated buildings actually hide beautiful jewels just behind the doors/gates.
The apartment is on the top level and the stairs can be daunting if you have mobility problems but we managed them well even with luggage. There is no air conditioning but the windows & doors allow for really good cross ventilation. We found a bit chilly overnight!
The patio is a wonderful place to relax with a bottle of local wine and a bit of bread and cheese. The neighborhood is quiet and the furnishings very comfortable.
We found that there wasn't much to do once we'd visited the fortress and Place Carnot - so we ventured out. We made it to Mediterranean beaches in Spain in two hours or so, and to French beaches on the Mediterranean in just over an hour. There are local vineyards very close to town with tastings and tours.
A great location for exploring! And a comfortable place to return to.
I can't imagine a better apartment or a more helpful owner. My husband and I have already rented it again. The next time we will stay for months, rather than the single week. The apartment is modern, extremely comfortable, with a fabulous location. The kitchen seemed too good to be true in the listing but it was accurate. Though we used it for simple tourist meals, it would be perfect for preparing a dinner party for guests. The terrace is comfortable and easily accessed. It's location also adds to the sunny, open feeling. Jason, both knowledgeable and friendly, is the perfect host. It's easy to tell he really cares about his guests and wants them to have the best possible stay. The apartment is on the third floor but is worth every step.
Lovely apartment in a great location for exploring Carcassonne's Bastide and Cité areas
An excellent experience from start to finish. Jason met us at the airport and showed us around the apartment, before dropping us off at the supermarket to stock up. He also gave us some great recommendations for restaurants. The apartment itself is full of character, with lots of lovely old beams, but also modern and contemporary and well equipped, with very comfortable beds. It was also spotlessly clean. The covered roof terrace with views across the rooftops and up to the Cité is lovely. We enjoyed exploring all areas of Carcassonne (Cité, Bastide, Aude river and Canal du Midi) on foot; everything is easily accessible from the apartment and there are trains/buses if you want to travel further afield. We would thoroughly recommend trying La Crêperie Le Blé Noir for excellent pancakes; the owner is a real character too! We needed to pre-book a table, even in October. At La Grande Bouffe we had the best steak ever, cooked over an open fire; the meat was simply presented, very tender and full of flavour. We also visited Au Lard et au Cochon, but found the food rather fatty and a bit lacking in flavour there. L'Auberge des Lices in the Cité has a more formal atmosphere; the homemade cassoulet is excellent (as was all the other food there). Carcassonne itself is characterful and quirky, and the famous fortified city and castle with their fairytale appearance are well worth a visit.
Wonderful apartment in excellent position
My husband and I have just returned from a three night stay at this apartment which was wonderful. Jason the very nice owner met us at the airport and also returned us to airport at end at no charge - it was much appreciated.
The apartment is very well equipped, well laid out and equipped with a lovely outdoor covered seating area. It was extremely clean and very comfortable and had everything that was needed. It was on the 3rd floor with no lift which was not a problem for us (and neither of us are either unfit or fit!) and they were gentle steps.
It was in a very good position just near the old bridge that crosses over into the old city but equally close to walking the other direction towards the canal de midi etc.
There are loads of restaurants in both directions and a very good one just across from the apartment called Les Mets-Tisses which we highly recommend - we had three wonderful courses and a bottle of wine for £57 and the food was of excellent standard with good service and nice decor/seating.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a well positioned and nicely equipped apartment in Carcassonne.
Excellent apartment with fantastic view of castle from balcony. Well equipped, secure and perfect.
Very modern. Clean, well equipped with lovely balcony and relaxing view of Castle and Dome. Everything within walking distance. Owner Jason is very helpful and a pleasure to meet. Cannot find fault with anything given we stayed for three months from Feb to April.
Very nice apartment & perfectly placed to vist both the old (Cite) & new parts of Carcassone. Owner jason is English & was very helpful, even met us at the airport & saved us a place in the queue to pick up our hire car!
Aparment itself was exaclty as described & well maintained. Particulary like the roof terrace to sit outside for breakfast or drinks in the evening.
If you happen to view the street on Google streetview, dont be put off by the apparent outside appearance, many french streets appear a little less than pristine from the outside but inside all is very nice indeed.
Parking too was never a problem, unlike the UK & nearly always free too. We managed to park in the strret every day except one when we parked just at the ned of the road in the free carpark.
Very good internet connection in the apartment too so able to watch UK TV on a tablet with ease; if you bring a sutialbe cable you could connect your phone to the TV too ;)
All told we had a great time & would reccomend Apartment Ney without hesitation.
