This apartment is indeed under the ramparts -- to get to the fortress just go up. The train station and the canal are 25 minute walk away, the river is close by. Perfect for biking and walking in the country-side surrounding the town. The apartment has everything needed to cook and serve simple meals; wi-fi is great; there are enough TV channels for me (I speak French). The bed is good, the shower is great and the water hot. The place is very clean, and the decoration is really charming. The street is a cul de sac (for cars -- those on foot can continue to the castle) and so very quiet. The owners live nearby and are very helpful and kind. There is a downside for those not easily mobile -- the apartment is above a garage and there are steep stairs to enter, and to get to all bedrooms. I would definitely go there again.
