Home away from home
After several years living overseas, we were looking for somewhere to spend sometime out in Europe and came across this place. Booking was easy with Jason, the owner, and all went through smoothly.
We originally booked for three months and ended up staying six!
First off, Jason is a no fuss, no nonsense type of guy who will not cause any problems and other than ensuring all is going well, he leaves you in peace. Not that we needed to, but he is around frequently in the premises as people come and go to attend to any issues. In fact, if he can, he will pick you up and drop you off at the airport or station.
Because of his pre-bookings and our extending, we stayed in a few of the properties in the block. All are clean, comfortable and well appointed and everything you will need is there to allow you to settle quickly. Wi-fi throughout works well and we managed to do some remote work during our time there.
The property itself is handily placed equi-distant from the Bastide and Le Cite. Train and motorway connections are excellent to explore the region and beyond. I would also flag up that we regularly hired from Enterprise Cars at the airport who were excellent.
Based on our experience staying here, we would highly recommend this place to anyone thinking of staying here be that on a short, medium or long term basis.

This is an excellent property, very clean, with modern furnishings and high standards. I found the location to be perfect and I actually parked my car on the street for my entire stay and walked everywhere. Jason was exceptionally kind when I got lost on arrival (my fault, entirely!) and he came to find me so that I could follow in my rental car to a parking spot right in front of the apartments. I would highly recommend staying here and in fact, I hope to return some day. Three nights was definitely not enough to explore all of the country around Carcassonne! I would recommend visiting the tourist office, on arrival, and signing-up for a 2 1/2 hour walking tour of La Cite and La Bastide (the apartment is located in-between the two, which is ideal). Then you have an idea of what you might want to explore further, for the rest of your stay. I liked the cruise on the Canal du Midi, but the shorter one was fully-booked early, and I think that the longer cruise was too long. In fact, a bike ride along the Canal might be better if you ride. Whatever you do, make sure to try the cassoulet!
Just arrived back from staying at the apartment. It was really comfortable and everything you needed was there. Jason was very friendly and only at the end of the phone if there was a problem. There was plently to do in the area, and if you want to travel out to Limoux and Quillan then get the train/bus as it is only a euro each way! Then once in Quillan you can get a bus to Perpignan for a euro too. Excellent value for money.
Carcassonne - YES !!!
We enjoyed our stay in this apartment in the Rue de Vieux Pont. The listing description was accurate and the property clean and well maintained. Jason had been good during the booking arrangements and provided good customer service.
We would recommend a friend or relative to stay here.It's well placed between the Bastide part of the city and the medieval city.
The Saturday market is something to behold both in scope and low prices .There is an excellent e1 train to Quillan up the Aude valley and 1e bus services around the city.
When we arrived we thought we had the wrong place because from the outside the place looks a bit tatty but that was the last disappointment of the week.
The apartment is superb, really comfy bed, great TV and WiFi for those relaxing evenings in. All the kitchen facilities you need if you want to cook and plenty of parking available around.
The location is excellent, 5 minutes walk from the stunning castle and ancient city and 5 minutes the other way from the 'new' town and the shops.
After a month staying in hotels this apartment was an absolute joy.
Thank you Jason & Annette.
Being so close to two UNESCO world heritage sites- Carcassonne Cite and the Canal du Midi we have to comply with strict planning rules particularly regarding the facade of the building. We have completed the first phase of this work which was renewing the chaux (lime) render and painting of windows and shutters. Early in 2013 to minimise any disruption to our guests,we will be repairing and painting the original wooden shop facade all in compliance with the Historic Monuments Department specification. As these guests rightly point out the wooden shop facade is a bit tatty but this does not detract from the apartments.
We should also point out here the advantage of us owning the whole apartment building, as many guests comment on how pleasant the communal hallway and stairwell is. We have stayed in apartments ourselves where the communal areas have graffiti on the walls.
These guests also appreciated that we have concentrated our efforts on making the apartments as comfortable as possible and the excellent position in relation to ameneties and particularly parking.
When compared to hotel prices in Carcassonne our apartments offer excellent value for money and far more space.
